Scouts would be loving you, you're almost in Brett Favre territory with those mitts.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

The Big Question 31610 - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN

Quote:
Should the Redskins select a quarterback at No. 4 overall?

Kyle Terada/US Presswire
Jimmy Clausen will likely be available when the Redskins pick at No. 4.
Now that conventional wisdom (and mock draft specialists) point to the St. Louis Rams selecting Oklahoma's Sam Bradford No. 1 overall, the Redskins are in an interesting position. With Oklahoma State left tackle Russell Okung likely available, the Redskins could go a long way in replacing Pro Bowler Chris Samuels, who recently retired because of a neck injury.

Okung's probably the safest pick at No. 4 overall -- and I think it would be the wisest selection. But Mike Shanahan knows more than anyone the importance of the quarterback position, and it's hard to tell if he's sold on Jason Campbell. He's reportedly watched hours of film on Jimmy Clausen, so I'm sure he's formed a pretty strong opinion of the former Notre Dame quarterback. We keep reading that Clausen's alleged cockiness put off some teams at the combine, but I haven't heard that complaint from anyone in the Redskins organization.

ESPN draft gurus Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are split on Clausen. Kiper has the Redskins selecting Clausen at No. 4, but McShay's never been sold on him. The big thing Clausen has going for him is that he's played in Charlie Weis' pro-style offense and he's comfortable taking snaps from center. Players such as Bradford, Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy are having to make some major adjustments in terms of their drops, but Clausen's been doing it for years.

Redskins general manager Bruce Allen and Shanahan haven't made any knee-jerk moves in trying to change the culture of the organization. If you look at what Bill Parcells and the Dolphins did when they first got to South Florida, they took the best left tackle in the draft in Jake Long. He'll likely start at that position for the next eight or nine seasons. They eventually selected Chad Henne, but the Dolphins didn't rush the process. It was Chad Pennington who led the team to the playoffs in '08.

Taking Clausen in the first round might be the most exciting move the Redskins could make, but acquiring a cornerstone of the offensive line will provide a better foundation. You guys on board with Okung at No. 4 or do you want Clausen? Use the "comments" section to answer The Big Question.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Clausen is overrated, look how good Brady Quinn has turned out under the coaching of Charlie Weis. Move up to take Bradford, maybe Campbell, McIntosh, this year's first, and next year's second could get that done with the Rams, trade down with the Seahawks or Browns who might want Clausen, or stay at four and take Okung. If we stay at four and take the OL then pick McCoy in round two or move up slightly to ensure his services.

The think about Quinn though was that Quinn never took chances and had spotty accuracy to boot. However he had great intangibles and 37 TD passes to go with it. Quinn though has a reputation for spending more time in the weight room then the film room. Not a problem with Clausen.

Another thing that seperates Clausen from Quinn despite his clear advantage in accuracy is the fact that Clausen has taken plenty of chances downfield and thrown only 4 ints in the process. Basically Clausen's numbers aren't inflated to much by passes under 10 yards and thats part of the reason I like him.

That's obvious.

Crap, what I meant to say is that right now he has a reputation for spending hours on end watching film. Still Jimmy has done a decent job bulkin gup since his freshmen year.

Also for the sake of keeping this thread alive heres the most relevant part of the article:

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Clausen is the franchise QB that we need!! Quinn also played for the shitty Browns where Tom Brady wouldn't even be successful. Quinn will do very well in Denver. I say if we don't take Clausen at #4, we trade a way the pick for more picks. I really want to be wearing a Clausen Skins jersey this season!!!

He apparently seems to think he's going to Seattle...though I'm not sure why. Wishful thinking maybe?

Clausen to Seattle wouldnt shock me. i've seen a couple of mocks that shows that happening. If Seattle doesnt take him, i could see him dropping quite a bit a la Aaron Rogers.

Smoot every time you change your user title I have to google or think about what prompted you to change it. I think you need to be required to put the explanation of why you changed it in your signature!

Don't have a list in front of me. John Skelton for sure. And I think they're bringing him in for a private visit. Plan on a private visit with Jahvid Best as well. Um, we've also met with Hardesty, Gerhart, Ben Tate, Colt McCoy, Selvish Capers, Zane Beadles, Ed Wang, and Koa Misi
