I was in my car listening to this on Sirius. They were shocked (me too.) Adam Schein said this was an owner's pick, because the coach and the GM needed someone that could help now. He even said he felt sorry for them. Later they said that they found out that the Panthers started trying to move up to 33 to get Clausen, He was the guy all along.

I really really love this pick. Finally we have some real talent and competition at QB.

Most people before the draft wanted Gilyard at 48. It looks now like we have a good shot at getting him or another good WR in the 3rd, which would make this pick look even smarter.

When the college season ended and Clausen entered the NFL draft everyone wanted him but knew hands down we didn't have a chance for him. Now through the luck of the Draft Gods he fell in our lap. We didn't have to trade up for him, trade next years picks or any of our running backs. He fell to us.

Yes we needed a WR and DT but how can you pass on a possible FRANCHISE QB. in the second round.

I am happy with it.

I'm fine with the pick because we didn't trade up for him. We could still land Gilyard or Damian williams in the third.

I'm not unhappy with the pick... plus we got what looks like a decent WR in the 3rd...

Wow. I thought this was a huge steal. Not as much as the ESPN guys who basically pegged us for the Superbowl this year.

But a wonderful situation I think. I'm surprised at the doubters.

You guys should thank Todd McShay for single handedly jaw jacking Clausen out of the first round. I think he's a no-brainer with the 48th pick.

I know that last night, Clausen probably wanted to punch McShay for costing him major $$$, but I think he knows how lucky he is to have landed with Carolina. Great city, fantastic part of the country, Stable franchise, great running game and offensive line. I'm sure he's fired up that he doesn't have to go commit career suicide in Cleveland, Buffalo or Oakland.

For carolina, its like picking up a Lexus for the price of a Camry.

For Clausen, its like finally having a real chance to win something.

I nearly shat a chicken when I found out we got Claussen in the second rd. it is a real win-win, franchise caliber QB doesn't have the pressure of being thrown to the wolves off the bat, and didn't have to give up anything for him, finally a bone thrown our way

Very happy with Clausen being our pick and him falling to us. You have a potential franchise qb in the 2nd round without having to give up anything for him. Having 2 young potential franchise qbs is never a problem with the running game we have going. Whether he wins the job or Moore they are both in good situations with our o-line and running game as long as they don't turn it over a lot. We're set up well for a Roethlisberger, Sanchez, fit into a strong team situation. Clausen falling to us is already set up to be more successful than McCoy or Bradford just because of who will be around him.

I feel very conflicted with this pick. Clausen has always been the top QB for me in this draft. He has all the tools to succeed in the NFL. The only problem I have with him, or should I say the only QUESTION I have with him is his maturity and leadership skills. Though his interviews have been quite impressive of late.

This is a young team that's only getting younger. We need some new leaders to add some cohesiveness to the locker room. Moore has proven that we should at least give him a chance to start. Heck, I've heard that we cut Jake because we didn't want guys like Smitty and Gross to choose between Jake or Moore. This really doesn't help.

I feel very, very conflicted indeed.

I think his leadership questions were answered his last year in school. I mean sure the 6-6 record isnt the greatest. But, that team would have been 2-10 without him. ND fan here, so Panthers became a new fav team to me. But, every game minus 2 (nevada, washington st) came down to literally the last drive or play of the game. The kid plays his butt off.

You want to see the kids hearts, and leadership....the week before was when he had his injury, and hadnt played a snap since the 1st quarter. comes back with 3mins to go in the 4th. I know its youtube video, but this is what you got. a kid who never quits and makes big time throws. the 3rd and 14...nfl ready, and those who say he doesnt have zip or accuracy..please.
