Scouting Report: Jimmy Clausen

October 10, 2009

Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame

Strengths: Can make time for himself moving in and out of the pocket well … Establishes rhythm very well … Strong arm with good zip … Decent accuracy … His best trait is the great deep ball that he puts up … Has a quick release … Leads his targets well … Has good decision making while under pressure … Has experience in the wildcat offense.

broncosbarWeaknesses: Doesn’t always put a great spiral on the ball … Needs work playing in the shotgun … Has been inconsistent throughout his career … Has a history of injuries … Has leadership questions floating around him.

broncosbarOverall: Jimmy Clausen, while only a Junior, has done enough this season to potentially be drafted within the first 10 picks of the 2010 draft. While he has all the physical tools and has worked a lot at his decision making, I would be wary of drafting him highly next year. My reasoning is that he would probably go to a very weak team and if we know anything, it is that when he has been surrounded by weak teams his play has been very poor.

4stars1st Round Pick
