Planted 10 viburnum emerald luster plants in a line. Been looking great for 7 weeks only recently 5 of them have begun to droop and lose their stance. The others are holding strong and looking great. Planted in clay all at the same time. Attached photo of when great and now current situation.

I found this extension service article that may be helpful:
https://ask.extension.org/questions/556022 However, have you inspected the drooping plants' stems and soil? Viburnum can fall victim to a canker called botryosphaeria, which will cause it to droop like this. Hopefully, that's not what you're dealing with but it's possible. Here's an article about it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/botryosphaeria-canker-disease.htm
