Breaking Down RB Kenyan Drake and DT Kenny Clark

Kenyan Drake – RB – Alabama Drake is a fourth year senior who has been a key contributor as a backup for Alabama. He can play as a running back, a kick returner and can even split out as a wide receiver. Size – 6006 – 208 – 4.45 (All estimates) Strong Points – Excellent athlete with very good speed. Quick to change direction. Very good in space. Hands and pass routes. Returns kickoffs. Weak Points – Strength and power. Not an inside runner. Tries to take many of his carries to the outside. Blocking. The Way We Hear It – Drake is a career backup at Alabama and that is just what he will be in the NFL. He lacks the inside run skills to be an every down player. Will be best as a spot player. He is a good receiver who has the open field run skills to turn a short pass into a long gain. Will also be useful as a kickoff returner. Give him 5-8 touches a game and he just may come up with a home run every once in a while.   Kenny Clark – DT – UCLA Clark is a third year junior and a two year starter for UCLA. He played as a backup as a true freshman and got a few starts. He has been the fulltime starter the last two years. 2015 was his best year with 77 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 6 sacks. Size – 6026 – 310 – 4.95 (All Estimate) Strong Points – Thick build with long arms. Has outstanding strength and power. Can dominate one-on-one blockers. Very instinctive. Quick to shed. Excellent play versus the run. Very good bull rusher and has some secondary moves. Top competitor. Makes plays even though he is consistently double teamed. Weak Points – A little short to play anywhere along the line. The Way We Hear It – A third year junior and a two year starter who is entering the Draft. Plays mostly as a 0 and 1 technique but can play any inside position in any front. Dominates when he is blocked one-on-one and is excellent versus double teams. Very strong and powerful to get penetration and disrupt run lanes. Very good hand use to shed and get to ball. Has top instincts and is seldom fooled. As a pass rusher he is mostly a bull rusher who can collapse the pocket. Has some moves but needs to develop more. Will start and be productive as a rookie and can play as a nose or a 3-technique in a 4-3 or as a nose in a 3-4. Might even be able to play at a 5 tech. He should become a very good NFL player.
