Will Clarke continued his steady rise in draft stock during the NFL Combine.
In the week leading up to the Shrine Game, we kept hearing great things about how WVU DE Will Clarke was performing in practice. He followed that up by having a great game and receiving an invite to the Senior Bowl the following weekend.
He kept the same pace during the week of the Senior Bowl and, as he did in the Shrine Game, played very well in the Senior Bowl. Those two weeks garnered Clarke an invitation to the annual NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
His fellow former teammate, Charles Sims, had a great performance on Sunday at the Combine, likely increasing his draft stock. (You can read about Sims' day here)
