I am more confident than ever that Jimmy Clausen will be our pick at #9. With Whitehurst going to Seattle, that eliminates them from taking JC with their pick. Washington will not take him at #4. So that leaves only the Browns as a realistic team that could take JC before us. With their recent moves and after hearing Holmgren's quotes lately, I don't think Claussen is even remotely on their radar. I think they'll either make a bold move up to try and get Bradford, or they'll draft a developmental QB with a second or third round pick.
Also, with Seattle solidifying their future QB, that greatly increases the chances that they select a LT with their pick. If Okung, Bulaga and Trent Williams are gone by pick 9 and JC is still on the board, I don't see how OBD passes on him. Unless they don't grade him as a possible franchise QB.
It just looks more and more like Clausen will be our selection, and I for one, couldn't be happier if that happens.
