I dont think there is any surprise there and they'd probably lose Rudolph and Floyd if they were eligible.

As for Locker i've had it at 50-50 but as of this morning that has changed to 60-40 he'll stay.

Not based on where they should be taken based on talent/value, but how many of these prospects could people see being drafted by NFL teams in the top 10???

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Clausen, Locker, and Bradford taken among the first 10 picks.

I am not a fan of this draft class at all for QBs. Each Qb has soooo many question marks and issues. No thank you. I would rather take Jevan Sneed(WHO SHOULD NOT DECLARE) in the 2nd and make him sit 2 years then investing 30-40 million guaranteed on Jimmy Clausen/Sam Bradford/Jake Locker and have him start sometime during the first year.

This class makes me utterly sick.

I just don't know about Clausen. In terms of physical skills he is solid with a strong arm, good accuracy, and an NFL offense. However I am still not sold on him. He has never had a winning season and has come up short in late game drives. Also I still have questions about his personality. I feel like Clausen will be a decent starting quarterback in the NFL, but never great.

Against Purdue?

Is that Clausen' best win of his entire college career?

That might be a big win than anything Quinn accomplished during his career, I have to admit.

Either way, how pathetic.

A beast will come out of ND this year. I'll take Tate in the top 15 all day, any day... even if he's 5'9''.

This QB class could be historic for all the wrong reasons. I hope they all go in round 1.

Well he was down 31-20 to Michigan and had two scoring drives to go up 34-31. The defense then failed and Michigan was able to score on the final drive.

Down four against Michigan State he drove the field and scored the game winning touchdown.

Against Boston College he drove the field down 3 to win the game.

Down 34-14 to USC Jimmy Clausen led the Irish down the field 3 times and only the 3rd time was unable to score a TD in order to tie it.

He is not able to do it every time, guess what neither can Peyton Manning or Tom Brady.

Staubach12

Clausen is the top QB of this class, and that's the bottom line. 28 TDs vs 4 INTs is fantastic. I know the stats don't tell the whole story, but if you saw Jimmy play this year, you know this guy made the jump everyone was hoping for. He makes great decisions in a pro-style offense, and simply looks like an NFL QB. Say what you want about his 3/4 release, or his less-than-stellar athletic ability, but the guy can throw the football. My favorite part of Clausen as a prospect is that he's not showing any signs of slowing down in his development, and his ceiling is way up there. I'm calling it now, top QB taken.

lordquas
12-07-2009, 07:12 PM
a 6'3 225 prodigy who's as athletic, and accurate as any other QB in the draft. Not to mention he has the strongest arm in the class. Should be a definite first rounder. Raiders, Chiefs, and Rams are where he'll most likely end up.

Bradford, McCoy and Tebow shouldn't be first rounders.

There's a million arguments against Tebow but Bradford's stock skyrocketed last year off his Heisman to the point where he probably would have gone #1 so there's more than even money that some team will roll the dice in the 1st on him. I'm not necessarily high on him but it only takes one team.

McCoy, eh. I could see him slipping into the late first if a team like the Vikings or Cardinals decides they like what they see and figures this is their best shot at a QB of the future for a while.

Sadly my screen name will lead people to think I have a bias (I actually went to Notre Dame high school, not college).

Clausen is my #1 QB for this draft, and though many will argue Bradford and many more will argue for Locker, I dont even think it is that close.

Jimmy has been a 3 year starter, he has faced adversity, came in with the weight of the world on his shoulders and he is dealt with it like a pro. He has shown MARKED improvement each season which makes me believe he has yet to hit his ceiling.

He has nearly everything I come to expect from a prospect:
Arm strength - Above average, can make all the throws. Not elite, but good enough.

Accuracy - Fantastic, shows consistent footwork, mechanics. Quick release. Also has kept his INT's down (just 4 this season, 3 of which were tipped balls).

Production - Yes numbers do matter, and Clausen has put up monster yardage, TD's and completion % this year.

NFL Build - Absolutely. He has the height/weight/size to be an NFL player right now. He knows how to take a beating and keeps on playing at a high level.

NFL System - This is no spread offense where he throws bubble screens and 5 yard slants - he throws to a near complete route tree, throws down field and has produced at a high level. He knows how to go through progressions, check-down and read a defense.

Winner - I think he is. What Jimmy did this season in the 4th quarter is nothing short of amazing. He has lead his team back MANY times, winning many or coming within 1 throw of winning. He is cool under pressure and has been wildly productive even though teams KNEW he had to throw to come back.


What is worth noting is that Jimmy played most of this season with an injured toe making it difficult for him to run and get full velocity on his passes.

Jimmy has the pedigree, arm strength, system, build, production to be worthy of what will likely be a top 5 pick. I only wish my 49ers could get him.

Tate will likely fall due the NFL stigma about taking undersized players. 5'11" is borderline at WR. I'm not saying he won't be successful (because plenty of 2nd and 3rd rounders are each year) but that he will likely be skipped over for a guy with prototypical size and "potential". Does he deserve a first round grade? In my opinion, no. High second round? Sure.

Holmes ran a 4.3. If Tate runs a 4.3, I'll have him in round 1 too. NFL Draft Scout has him listed as a 4.35-4.55 time. If he runs 4.5, he'll be second round for sure. If he runs 4.4, he'll be borderline. As little as they have to do with your actual ability to play football, your triangle numbers determine your draft position.

I agree on the BQx2 and also that any QB prospect that comes to Cleveland is doomed to suck until we upgrade the offensive weapons. At the very least Brady has years here, familiarity with the rookie receivers, and good potential (hopefully).

Picking a QB would only set the Browns back another couple steps unless we get the next Peyton Manning, which there isn't.

So how would everybody lay out this draft in comparison with past drafts? Assuming Locker, Clausen, Bradford, McCoy, and Tebow are 1st rounders (I know they won't all be, but it's hard to know who will be at this point)...

1. Clausen
2. Russell
3. Cutler
4. Leinart
5. Stafford
6. Quinn
7. Ryan
8. Locker
9. Young
10. Flacco
11. Sanchez
12. Bradford
13. McCoy
14. Freeman
15. Tebow

That's as prospects, mind you. Anyway, is there anyone out there as high on Clausen as me?

I think Brady Quinn was a better prospect than Jimmy Clausen is going to be

clausen easily has the better arm but quinn's intangibles are better, its what you like better

I think the Skins trade up to get him. It was already reported that we were scouting him 2 weeks ago. He was just on our GM's (Vinny Cerrato) radio show about 10 mins ago. I'm sure by the time the Combine is over Danny Boy will be smitten with him like he was with Sanchez.

Well if the Rams and Browns start winning some games, we might not even have to trade up.

Is Cerrato going to have a job?

Jimmy Clausen is one of the biggest douchebags you will find.

LMFAO @ this clown succeeding. The guy committed to ND at the College Football HOF while showing off his HS championship rings.

Someone said bloodlines? What bloodlines? His brothers were all terrible quarterbacks.

Winner - I think he is.

Because Notre Dame has really won a lot of games recently....
