It’s final: 6’2”, 200-pound (with 4.43 speed, no less) cornerback Jeremy Clark has a home in the NFL, as we knew he would. He’ll solidify the Jets pass defense and help them as a sixth round pick.
For a long time, Michigan fans weren’t sure where he’d fit, or what kind of player he’d turn into. A safety, a linebacker, a corner? But once Clark settled down at cornerback, he showed that all the questioning was more than worth it as he turned into one of the biggest, rangiest corners in college football. For a league that loves size, Jeremy is about to show the 6’0” corners a thing or two.
In the meantime, fully recovering from his ACL injury that kept him out of nine games last season is a must. Clark said his injury really challenged him, citing “the fear of the unknown,” but now he gets to finish tackling his recovery and play for the ____. And despite the long journey to this point, and the ups and downs that came with it, it’s clear that the work has paid off.
What’s your grade on this one?
