The Washington Redskins will be checking out quarterback Jimmy “Loving, Caring” Clausen this weekend. According to Ed Thompson of Scout.com, the ‘Skins also plan to eyeball Colt McCoy.
The visit will occur Monday and Tuesday.
But here’s the best reason not to get worked up about pre-draft visits, by quarterbacks or any other players. Four years ago, when Redskins coach Mike Shanahan traded up to get quarterback Jay Cutler with the eleventh overall pick, Cutler did not make a pre-draft visit to Denver.
So what do the visits mean? At this point, not much of anything. Unless Shanahan holds true to his 2006 form, which would mean that he wants a quarterback who won’t be showing up at Redskins Park.
