Draftwatch: Jimmy Clausen to Declare

According to a Rotoworld report, Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen will enter the draft. This is the list of declared and senior QBs to this point (aka, those who will be in the draft come April);

  • Sam Bradford, Oklahoma
  • Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame
  • Colt McCoy, Texas
  • Tim Tebow, Florida
  • Tony Pike, Cincinatti
  • Daryll Clark, Penn State
University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker has yet to declare for the draft and won’t likely until the screws are put to him. He has the largest risk / reward potential at stake. He has been injury prone in he past and has not won many games, but his pure athleticism and strong arm make him a near lock to go in the first round. Bradford, Clausen and him are likely all top twelve picks. Still, an extra year of learning under Sarkisian and he could be a real, live, successful NFL quarterback, which in the long run means a lot more long-term earnings than the first contract… just ask David Carr.
