Louisville Cornerback Makes Waves in the 2023 NFL Draft

Wasup widdit, Louisville football fans? We’ve got some major news for you from the 2023 NFL Draft. University of Louisville cornerback Kei’Trel Clark is taking his skills to the Arizona Cardinals after being selected with the No. 180 pick in the sixth round on Saturday.

Clark is the 156th UofL selection all-time in school history, and he’s the third player taken in this year’s draft, joining Yaya Diaby, a third-round selection, and Yasir Abdullah, who was taken in the fifth round. This marks the most Louisville players selected since four were drafted in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Transferring from Liberty, Clark spent three seasons with the Cards, earning All-Atlantic Coast Conference accolades in all three seasons, with two of those being second team honors.

In 2022, Clark stepped up his game, earning third team honors with a career-best 51 tackles and one interception, which he returned for a 46-yard touchdown. The 2021 season saw him rack up 41 tackles and a career-high three interceptions, despite playing in only eight games after tearing his ACL in a loss to NC State.

Clark’s first season after transferring showcased his talents, as he received a second team all-league selection, finishing with 36 tackles and ranking 12th nationally with 11 passes defended. He even picked off his first career pass in a home win over Syracuse.

So, let’s give a big shout-out to Kei’Trel Clark as he heads to the Arizona Cardinals. We know he’s going to continue making plays and showing off his skills in the NFL. Keep an eye on this rising star, and let’s get hyped for the new season. Go Cards and go Kei’Trel!
