As the Sam Bradford pro day hype begins to subside (which I realize is a debatable statement), we can all turn our attention to the next best quarterback on the board: Jimmy Clausen.
Tweeting machine Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Notre Dame signal-caller is scheduled to have private workouts with the Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars in South Bend following his pro day on April 9.
The Redskins currently hold the fourth overall pick in April’s draft, while the Jaguars are scheduled to select from the ten spot.
But that’s not all. In addition to workouts with the ‘Skins and Jags, Clausen will meet with personnel from the Buffalo Bills (ninth pick), St. Louis Rams (first pick) and Cleveland Browns (seventh pick) sometime after his pro day.
That’s five teams showing interest and five teams that are currently selecting in the top ten.
So maybe the question isn’t how far Clausen could fall, but how high will he go?
