Carolina Panthers trade target: Le’Raven Clark (OT)

Despite not seeing the field in 2019 for the Indianapolis Colts, there is a lot to like about the skill set offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark brings to the table. He is an imposing figure on the line of scrimmage. And this represents an area of considerable need for the Carolina Panthers.

Clark was active on three occasions for the Colts last season without getting a competitive snap. He was kept around on a one-year, $2 million deal this offseason. But a trade offer for a player that might not have a future with the franchise would be an enticing option.

The former Texas Tech standout is a victim of circumstance at the present time. The Colts possess arguably the NFL’s best offensive line. And this has left fringe players on the outside looking in regarding getting notable opportunities.

This is a problem that Clark wouldn’t have with the Panthers. Left tackle Russell Okung is unlikely to be kept around after the 2020 season. And the future of right tackle Taylor Moton is uncertain heading into the final year of his deal.

Carolina will likely do their utmost to keep Moton around. But there will need to be another prominent presence if the lineman eventually makes the move over to the left tackle spot.

That’s where Clark could come in. And he did play well enough in 2018 to secure a 67.6 grade from Pro Football Focus. It wouldn’t cost the earth to get the player, who could be an extremely good value for money.
