Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

It's amazing how stories develop off a few mock drafts. I'm not buying the Clausen hype.

They don't look at the team's needs to veer from that story. They probably still think we're a team that buys old players for too much money too.

I don't know why our team has so many stereotypes in the media...they don't even look at our team, they just have about 3 or 4 lines that they recycle and rotate for our team's headlines.

LOl, agreed, He is just not a top ten pick. It would be a severe reach at #4...Colt in the second round would be a better value and I think he will be there. Im hoping either Bradford or Okung at this point.

you hit the nail on the head. i couldnt agree with this analysis more. if Bradford isnt there at 4, take Okung.

Even if Okung is not a fit for the system or blocking scheme Shanahan is trying to implement?

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Okung with his athleticism shouldn't have a problem zone blocking in the NFL.

Umm....my thinking has evolved about who is deemed to be a good value at which slot and who's not. Bottom line is you don't know until you know. I mean, Clausen at #1 might make sense for some teams. You know? If you like him, then you like him. I think whether he goes at #1 or #10 is completely overstated and irrelevant when the team is on the clock. If a GM believes that this guy can help you win, and this is your only shot to take him, then it doesn't 'mount to a hill of beans whether he drafts him at #1 or a #10 pick. It makes for good draft day discussion and fodder, but the game is ultimately won on the field. And I don't think there's a ton of space in terms of talent and potential between, say, the top ten picks in the NFL Draft. For all we know, C.J. Spiller could be the #1 pick for a team that places that kind of value on him.

That said, I'm starting to lean towards Clausen over Bradford. Here's why; Clausen has proved, undeniably, that he's the toughest QB in this draft. I watched this guy limp (with that bum toe/foot injury) through at least three games and managed somehow to keep an average Notre Dame team competitive. Also, Bradford's shoulder injury scares the hell out of me. Those things never really heal and the hits he's about to take in the NFL will further take its toll over time. That's just my opinion, of course, but I'm interested to see how he responds to the speed of the game at this level.

I like how you think

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

I would prefer to stay away from Clausen altogether. We already have a QB on our roster with good physical tools but questionable leadership skills/intangibles. Why go down that road again?

Carrying a team with average, at best, talent on his back with an injured foot for half the season sure doesn't seem to me like questionable leadership skills/intangibles.

I don't think it's Clausen's intangibles that anyone questions. He's definitely displayed leadership qualities over and over again.
