Michigan defensive end Frank Clark was among a handful of players who visited the Saints on Monday, according to a source.

Clark recorded 25.5 tackles for a loss and nine sacks over the last two seasons. He finished as a top performer at February’s scouting combine in the vertical jump (38.5 inches), three-cone drill (7.08 seconds), 20-yard shuttle (4.05 seconds), and 60-yard shuttle (11.22 seconds).

Clark (6-foot-3, 270-pounds) was kicked off the Michigan football team in November after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. He recently accepted a plea deal that resulted in a disorderly conduct charge.

Washington cornerback Marcus Peters, UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks and Washington State defensive tackle Xavier Cooper also met with the team Monday. Nebraska pass rusher Randy Gregory and UCLA defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa were in town Tuesday, according to sources.

Clark is projected to be a mid-round pick.
