Green Bay Packers defensive end Kenny Clark, a two-time Pro Bowler, continues to be a formidable force for opposing offenses in the NFL. Standing at 6’3″ and weighing 314 pounds, the San Bernardino native displayed his exceptional skills with a remarkable sack against New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr, just seconds into the Packers’ narrow 18-17 defeat to the Saints on Sunday.
Clark, a standout from UCLA, earned accolades during his college career, including an All-Pac-12 First Team selection in 2015 and a Second Team nod in 2014. Additionally, he secured a place on the All-American Third Team in 2015. In 2016, the Green Bay Packers drafted him as the No. 27 overall pick.
The Green Bay Packers, with a 2-1 record, currently top the NFC North standings, tied with the Detroit Lions. This season marks the team’s first under the leadership of new quarterback Jordan Love. It remains to be seen what the future holds for Love, but for now, Packers fans can revel in the exceptional performance of Kenny Clark.
In the recent matchup against the Saints, Clark exhibited his defensive prowess, recording a total of four tackles, with three of them being solo and one assisted, in addition to the memorable sack. Looking back at his complete 2022 season, the 27-year-old Clark amassed impressive statistics, including 53 total tackles (27 solo and 26 assisted) and four sacks while participating in all 17 games with the Green Bay Packers.
Kenny Clark’s performance on the field has solidified his reputation as a premier defensive end in the NFL. As he continues to make standout plays like the epic sack against the Saints, he remains a critical asset for the Green Bay Packers and a force to be reckoned with for rival offenses across the league.
