Edwards or Clausen: Who has better chance?

I know why Clausen haters hate Pickles, but I am of the mind that he wasn't put in the best situation to succeed and, thus, should get another opportunity to actually prove that he can be an NFL QB. As for Edwards, it seems to me that it is kind of premature to be calling him a bust and convicting the FO for making a seemingly dumb move (particularly in retrospect), because he really hasn't been on the field for any appreciable amount of time. In other words, we don't know what he can do.
I know people seem to forget (and it may seem like a joke), but Clausen has been groomed since childhood to be a pro QB and made great strides his sophomore year at Notre Dame, and Edwards is extremely athletic, and had an outstanding collegiate career (albeit Division I), including helping to take down Michigan. It may be optimistic in light of the past season, but I still have a wait and see attitude on both. I am just wondering what the Huddle thinks about who has the better opportunity to be a success in the pros. Put the hate on the back burner for a moment, and consider the answer.

Edwards was a college QB. It will be interesting to see him compete for the punt returner job.

Jimmy has very pedestrian talent at this level and was more of a product of grooming/overachieving to get here.
