PFT: QB Jimmy Clausen to visit with Bills

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills are taking a seriously long look at the quarterbacks coming into the league this year as part of the 2010 draft class. Apparently, head coach Chan Gailey's conversation with Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen at this past February's scouting combine wasn't enough due diligence on Buffalo's part.

Per ProFootballTalk.com, Clausen will make a pre-draft visit with the Bills. He'll also visit with Cleveland and St. Louis, who hold the top overall pick.

Clausen is a junior entrant coming off of a great season in his final college campaign. Playing most of the season through a right foot injury, Clausen completed 68% of his passes for 3,722 yards with 28 touchdowns, just four interceptions and a passer rating of 161.43. Though many scouts question his intangibles and rate Oklahoma's Sam Bradford as the best quarterback in the draft, Clausen is fairly universally accepted as a first round talent.

Buffalo has scheduled pre-draft visits with Florida's Tim Tebow and Texas' Colt McCoy, as well.
