After Funchess was selected with the No. 41 pick by the Carolina Panthers, another Wolverine has been taken off the board.

Michigan defensive end Frank Clark has been selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the No. 63 pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Clark played in 48 games for the Wolverines and was dismissed by then head coach Brady Hoke after a domestic violence arrest. The charges were later lessened after taking a plea deal. Clark finished his career with 120 tackles, one forced fumble, four fumble recoveries and one interception.

According to his NFL.com draft profile, Clark was listed as a third or fourth round prospect.

NFL.com Draft Profile

Strengths: "Downhill defensive end who can play on the other side of the line of scrimmage. Has the power to control the edge and is able to disengage and finish as a tackler. Fires out of stance with good burst upfield as pass rusher. Keeps pad level low and converts speed to power. Gets shoulders turned when he rounds corner as pass rusher, gaining leverage advantage."

Weaknesses: "Effort rusher who relies on motor and power over talent. Lacks fluidity and natural transition from move to move as pass rusher. Doesn't gain much ground with spin-move counter, often twisting in place. Lacks subtlety of movement or footwork necessary to execute consistent inside move at the next level. Marginal change-of-direction talent. Has had multiple off-field issues during his time at Michigan and was dismissed from Michigan in November after being arrested on domestic violence charges."
