Summary: Jimmy Clausen is a franchise quarterback. He has carried the spotlight since he was a teenager and has surpassed the hype. He has an outstanding skill set with the elite intangibles you see in the great quarterbacks. Clausen isn't fazed by tense situations and has great leadership when the game is on the line. He puts in the hours to be a great quarterback and you see it on tape. Clausen will likely be the first quarterback drafted and is a projected top-five draft pick.
Player Comparison: Kurt Warner. Warner and Clausen both exhibit the same three-quarter release, they get the ball out quickly, and are extremely decisive/intelligent quarterbacks. Clausen has a stronger arm.
@Drunk Ass Jerry To your points.... M. Hyatt is excellent but lacks the size many feel needed for OT and see him as a OG in the NFL... Safety is still a need for the Bucs ... RB it seems like C. Sims is always hurt... D. Martin has been up and down... I like J. McNichols alot but see him as their 3rd down back of the future.. I did grab a CB in RD4 for them... and 2018`s edge rushing talent isn`t deep into the later rounds..I see them using F/A for edge help more than the 2018 draft.
Seems like a month ago that i was 8-2 in two days of MLB play, actually it was 4 days ago. Another crap result yesterday and I'm getting a little cheesed about it. If I had not used hedging techniques I would be bleeding coin by now, but since I am, it's just a stinger. For today: In an ongoing par from yesterday I'm sticking the Under 8.5 -115 in the Braves/Dodger game in the second tier spot. Start up pars with Astros: -118, Boston -123, and AZ +1.5 RL -160, all with two open. GL and hopefully the Red tide will fade.
