Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Like what are the Redskins expected to say, he shit the bed? It's all PR and spin at this point.

Truth is it's hard to detect personality defects in a candidate while he's interviewing for the job of his life, so all you really have to go on is what you see on the field and in the training room. What we know for sure is that Clausen isn't going around jacking cars, slapping down hoes in the club, and just being an overall menace to society. Everybody worth their salt has haters. I think the Skins, and any other NFL organization, can cut through the media BS and determine if he's truly NFL ready or not.

I don't think Bruce Allen wakes up, flips the tube to NFLN to see what Maycock has to say about the matter.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

NFL Scout on McShay on Clausen:
Quote:
"On draft day McShay will look like a fool because whether or not you like Clausen as a person he is very talented," the source said. "He has more training and game time in a pro system than any quarterback in the draft. His improvement from '08 to '09 was tremendous. If Notre Dame had a defense, Charlie Weis would still be there coaching. Offense was not the problem. I will agree that Clausen may have some A-hole in him but he is extremely talented. He has a strong arm and is very accurate. Plus he has played a lot in a pro system."
I posted this in another thread but it seemed like this part fit here.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

I'm starting to think that the real question is, "What burgundy and gold number will Clausen wear?"

I'm not saying I want this, I'm saying that this seems like the way things will shake out. That said, I would not mind this outcome.

I would describe the actual chances of Clausen playing here as highly unlikely. Obviously, you need to keep all channels of communication open regarding all prospects, but I think our Big Board is shaping up without Clausen or Eric Berry in the top five.

I wish I knew where they had Suh rated. Because without that, I can't possibly think that I have the draft strategy figured out.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

I think that the only way we get Clausen is if Bradford and Okung are off the board and if we don't have anyone to trade down with.

Someone said on Redskin Insider that Theisman has given the go ahead for Clausen to wear #7, but I haven't been able to confirm that. Don't doubt it though. I mean heck, Jurgenson gave Shane Matthews permission to wear #9, but at the same time warned him about what the fans might say. This time around though I'm pretty sure you'll see strong public support from Theisman on this "issue" assuming it's true.

I guess that would make some sense since they're both Notre Dame alum, and JT was a bit of an advisor to Clausen during his time at Notre Dame.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Is Clausen actually 6'3" or closer to 6'2"?

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

^^ I wonder if Theismann is lobbying for Clausen behind the scenes. Anyone know of a Theismann 2010 mock draft?

Kinda splitting hairs there 12th. But just FYI he's 6' 2-5/8" if it really matters.

He's listed at 6'3 but was measured at the combine at 6'2. So to answer your question he's 6'2.

Rule of thumb with draft prospects is to always go around a half inch lower then their listed height. Anyway I guess it's settled.

JR: Aside from Tim Tebow, the player I get asked more about than any other is Jimmy Clausen. I know youíve scouted him extensively.

Scout: Yeah I have. Iíve seen every snap he took and a lot of them more than a few times. The thing about him is that kid just loves football and itís his whole life. All these people talk about him being this or being that, and they sure as hell havenít ever spent time with him. Because that kid is all about making himself the best NFL quarterback, and heís got the physical ability to do it.

JR: But will he be successful?

Scout: I really think so. Look, heís got some warts. That kid was a world class prick when he got there, but he figured it out and grew up. You could really see it over the last year. They ran an NFL offense and (Clausen) made reads and drops that none of the other guys have even thought about. He just anticipates routes so well. Now would I like to see him gun it a little harder sometimes, yeah, sure. But for my money this kid is the surest bet in this draft (at QB).

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

That would explain the mixed reports on his character. Looks like McShay and Kiper are both right. It's just that McShay's reports are based in 2007.
