  • Holmgren Not High on Clausen

    ...but he'll likely take a QB later.

    Browns president Mike Holmgren admitted that he isn't high on Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen.
    "You know how you have a type of player that you like? It's not scientific. People like him a lot. He'll go high," Holmgren said. "But it would be hard for me [to take him]." Holmgren reiterated that he will take a quarterback in the draft, but it probably won't be until late.

    I guess they'll go with Berry, Thomas, Mays, JPP, Dez or Spiller at #7.

    Good choice. Why replace one first round Notre Dame QB bust with another?

      I see them taking Berry, Haden or JPP at this point. Maybe they take a shot at a guy like LeFevour in the 3rd since they have two 3rds now

            I'm very high on Clausen, and believe he WILL be the Rams #1 pick.

            I find it ironic that he's getting NO publicity when he was recently being talked about #1. I feel he's the pick, and everyone else is just a huge smokescreen.

              Because we don't want Clausen or because we got rid of Quinn?

              I know you were high on Quinn coming out of college but he showed absolutely nothing in his three year stint here.

                And the Rams will draft Jahvid best with their 2nd round pick?

                <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                    Jahvid Best, Jonathan Dwyer, Brandon Graham or Sean Weatherspoon, perhaps Dan Williams or Brian Price are all possibilities if they go Clausen #1.

                      Why would they go Clausen #1? They could easily trade back to someone who wants Bradford probably the Browns and take Clausen at 7 unless a team tries to jump in front of them. I think that would make more sense, they could get some extra picks and still get the guy they want if that's the case.

                        Holmgren said the same thing about Tebow, but it seems that he has changed his mind as of late. It seems that Clausen's only destinations now is either Washington or Buffalo, if this maintains any consistency.

                          That's what I'm saying. They're pushing the buttons on Bradford and Suh so that some team that desperately wants them can move up and the Rams can slide back and grab Clausen ( hoping he's still there ). But if they're at #1 still and cannot trade back, I have to think they take Clausen.

                          Bradford is way to big of a gamble at #1.

                            No one can easily trade out of #1.

                            And while you don't want to really trust GMs at this time of the year, that's a pretty telling statement. I don't really think you can say something like that about a pick that high, a franchise QB no less, and then take him.

                              Smokescreen, now people don't feel like they have to trade ahead of the Browns to get him.
