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.
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.
