Jimmy Clausen, QB - Notre Dame
Pick made by TouchdownColts:
Suh seemed like the logical pick, but I think there is enough quality DL later in the draft. Plus the signing of [Fred] Robbins made me decide to go with a franchise QB. I like Clausen over [Sam] Bradford because Clausen played a pro style in college, hence probably more ready to go out the gate, but with the signing of AJ Feeley there is a little cushion for learning. I do think the Rams go with a QB and Jimmy just seems to be more ready than Bradford. Strong arm, and can make all the necessary pro throws.
How much impact will Clausen have in 2010?
Little to no impact to begin season as Feeley will probably start, however Feeley will struggle and midway through the Rams will begin playing Clausen. Clausen will probably play in 8 games and be 4-4.
If Clausen is taken #1 overall, he'd be the first player from ND to be picked #1 overall since 1972, when the legendary DE Walt Patulski was taken #1 by the Bills.
