Safety Chuck Clark was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the second pick in the sixth round, 186th overall.
Clark is a tough-minded, athletic, safety from Virginia Tech. As a Hokie he was a two-year team captain. Clark received an honorable mention from the media in his final year, as he made 94 stops, 2.5 for loss, and two pass break-ups. Clark has been lauded by scouts for his tackling ability.

Clark is small for a NFL defensive back but tries to make up for it in toughness and durability. He was a three year starter in Virginia.
Clark looks to fight for playing time in a loaded Ravens secondary though, as the Ravens already drafted Alabama corner, Marlon Humphrey.
Clark will provide depth to the Ravens secondary while he develops to possibly become the heir to Eric Weddle.
