Michigan. Frank Clark. 5. player. 123. <p>Towards the end of the draft, you will find many players that have jaded history when it comes to off-field problems. Frank Clark is the case of that. On the field, Clark is a dynamic pass-rusher that excels with his combination of size and speed. If it were for his play alone, Clark would likely be a Day 2 pick. However, many off-field concerns and run-ins with the law will warrant him as a Day 3 pick. Here are three run-ins Clark had with the law:</p> <ul> <li>Clark stole a laptop from a Michigan student in his freshman year. He plead guilty to the felony and he received probation.</li> <li>He’s gotten sued over unpaid rent.</li> <li>He also got detained by the police after driving on the wrong side of the road without proof of insurance and proper plates.</li> </ul> <p>Despite these issues, one team that has taken a special interest in Clark is the Cowboys. Out of their 30 pre-draft visits, the Cowboys brought Clark into Valley Ranch for a pre-draft visit. Here’s what DallasCowboys.com’s Bryan Broaddus said about Clark and the Cowboys’ prospects of drafting him:</p> <blockquote><p>“Teams have Clark off their board for off the field issues, but I am willing to bet that the Cowboys have the facts.”</p></blockquote> <p>As is the case by the Hardy signing, if the Cowboys are interested in signing or drafting a player, they will do their due diligence in getting the facts on him before doing anything. By coming to Dallas, Clark will have the chance to work with Marinelli. At 6-foot-3, 270 pounds, he has prototypical size for Dallas’ 4-3 defensive scheme.</p>. DE
