When WR prospect Michael Floyd works out at the Notre Dame pro day, the football will be launched by a familiar arm — that of former Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen.
Floyd is expected to be one of the top receivers taken in the draft this April. He’s got a lot of upside. He’s big and fast, and he’s caught a lot of passes. He was suspended in 2011 after being charged with a DUI, but otherwise he’s what you want in a receiver: he’s big and tall and he’s got really good hands. He should be taken somewhere between No. 10 and No. 17 in the first round.
According to the South Bend Tribune, 16 of Floyd’s 37 touchdown passes were the result of a connection between Clausen and Floyd.
Clausen was selected by the Panthers in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He made 10 starts in the 2010 season, throwing for 1,558 yards and three touchdowns while having nine passes picked off. He did not attempt a pass in 2011.

Now lets just hope a scout forgets Clausen is already in the NFL and drafts him in the 5th round...

For Floyds sake, I hope there isn't any pass rush or all the throws will be twenty yards out of bounds, or at his feet.

Is this Clausen's contribution to the team? Make Floyd look so bad he lasts till the 40th pick?

I don't see anything wrong with this.

This is actually smart on Clausen's part.

It is a way to showcase his "talents" before the season.

plenty of scouts about to see what floyd can do

clausen's going to try and ride his coat tails and hopefully catch someone's eye who might see some value in him still

Wonder if the Panthers have quietly given Clausen permission to seek a trade?
