The NFL is always watching.
So when Jimmy Clausen sat down with Jon Gruden for his Sportscenter QB camp special, there were plenty of eyeballs still evaluating the Notre Dame quarterback.
“There are these nagging concerns about what kind of kid is he and the other night people around the league were talking about this,” NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said this morning on the Dan Patrick Show. “He threw his wide receiver under the bus. And quarterbacking 101 is you take responsibility. Everything is your fault.”
Mayock said that caused some to wonder, “People look at that go ‘wow’. Is that what we’re getting?”
Mayock thinks the Gruden interview could hurt Clausen, which was the point Florio made a few days back. No one can figure out where Clausen land, with a few big names thinking a slide to No. 30 is possible.
Maybe my bold prediction from our draft preview will turn out right after all.
