UCLA defensive lineman Kenny Clark declares for the NFL draft
UCLA defensive lineman Kenny Clark will declare for the NFL draft and will forgo his senior season at UCLA, Clark announced Monday on Twitter.

“I’ve heard some people say first round, and it wouldn’t shock me,” McShay said. “I think worst case is probably going to be second round for him. But at the end of the day I think he’s just a really good all-around football player.”
On Twitter, Clark thanked UCLA fans for the past three years and added, “I am ready to take the next step forward.”
