Strengths Weaknesses

He looks more like a guard with his body type, but he has the light feet to play on the edges and cover a large area. Clark is more of a catch blocker with his high cut stance and tendency to play upright, lacking ideal base strength. He flashes a nasty punch in the run game with the ability to drive defenders out of the play, but doesn't show the same strength as a pass blocker.

In Texas Tech's offense, the left tackle is almost always retreating in pass protection, making it easy to criticize Clark's technique and footwork, but it's just a product of what he's asked to do. Clark has started every game the past two seasons and has several NFL tools that can be groomed at the next level.

Player Overview

After starting all 13 games at right guard as a freshman in 2012, Clark moved outside and manned the left tackle duties as a sophomore, starting all 13 games and earning Second Team All-Big 12 honors.

03/12/2015 - Texas Tech offensive tackle Le'Raven Clark said he did not receive a first- or second-round grade from the NFL draft advisory board this winter, which made it a simple call to stay for his senior season. The two-time AP All-Big 12 tackle had never seemed especially interested in leaving early, even beforehand. "It wasn't too much of a decision for me," Clark said Monday. "I kind of had in mind for the most part to come back. I didn't really put too much thought into it. Just kind of assessed where I was going to be."

Between last year and this year, the NFL changed the grading system for underclassmen soliciting information for early inclusion in the draft. In previous years, one of five ratings was assigned: as high as the first round, as high as the second round, as high as the third round, no potential to go in the first three rounds and no potential to be drafted. This year, the advisory board issued one of three grades: first round, second round or neither, which could be taken as a recommendation to stay in school. Now in the midst of another spring practice with the Red Raiders, the 6-foot-6, 316-pound Rockdale product says he has areas he wants to shore up. "My overall strength, for the most part," he said. "And little technical stuff, sharpening my game. And playing hard every snap." - Don Williams, Texas Tech football
