Let's say Jimmy Clausen stayed in school last year and came out in this draft..

I believe he would easily be the #1 QB in this draft.

Wiki.

In October 2009, Clausen was named midseason All-American by The Sporting News.[27] His finished the season with 3,722 yards passing, a 68.8% completion rate, 161.42 passer rating, 28 touchdowns, and four interceptions.[28]

We would be drooling over him to be picked 1st.

just saying.

Then who would we have picked with our #2 last year? Probably would have saved it for Edwards and not made the trade for this year's #1. So essentially, we are picking Clausen at #33 this year...

Apparently even a "high ranking " Panther FO type has him third best and you know we would rank him higher than anyone else. After seeing how he threw the ball and how low he delivered it, it would be hard to put him higher than 5th or 6th. Especially if he didn't participate in the combine like last year.

actually if you read that post / listen to the interview, it wasn't just the Panthers that felt that way, p55. It was other teams as well. (No idea how many others)

Again the best would be third but given that he had foot issues which we now know lingered all through the year and he were coming out now where would he go?

But put it another way, if you could have any quarterback coming out of college instead of Clausen in a straight up pick how many would you take? Newton? Gabbert? Locker? Ponder? Mallett? Honestly after seeing how poorly he played and how fundamentally flawed he is mechanically I would take any one of them instead of him.

He was rated high because he was supposedly NFL ready. Given we know that wasn't the case, his stock would have dropped significantly in my mind.

lol I would be such a broken man if we traded next year's 1st that I would be trying to convince myself that if he stayed in college we would have drafted him anyway, so it's actually better that we got him a year's head start.

Newton- 6' 6"

Mallett- 6' 6"

Locker - 6' 3"

Gabbert 6' 5"

Due to Clausen's side arm throw he plays more like he is 5' 11" than 6' 3". Locker's ball comes out much higher than Clausen's
