Jeremy Clark drafted by Jets
Written by Matt Pargoff   

 

Jeremy Clark played only three games as a senior, knocked out of the season by a torn ACL before the start of conference play. Despite that setback, the former Michigan corner was drafted by the New York Jets with the 13th pick of the sixth round, going at No. 197 overall.

Clark started his career as a safety, but shifted to the cornerback spot under Jim Harbaugh, making 15 starts. That versatility and his 6-foot-4 frame made him an attractive options for NFL franchises looking to add more size to the secondary.

For his career, Clark made 49 tackles, broke up nine passes and intercepted three.

He was the 11th player selected from Michigan in the draft, setting the new program record, eclipsing the 10 players taken in 1972 and 1974.
