According to Clark’s draft profile by Sports Illustrated, Clark is a rookie UDFA who played at Tulane in college:
“Played at Tulane University. As a freshman, he played in twelve games, totaling five tackles. During his sophomore season, he played in nine games, totaling fourteen tackles and one interception.
During the 2020 season, he played in all twelve games, totaling forty three tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.
As a junior, he started in all twelve games, totaling seventy four tackles, which ranked first on the team, four tackles for loss, one sack, and four interceptions. During his senior season, he played in thirteen games, totaling sixty three tackles, eight tackles for loss, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.”
Clark was on the Bears 90-man roster this summer but didn’t survive the 53-man roster cuts at the end of August. But the staff was impressed enough with Clark this summer to bring him back in Week 2.
