  1. Man I don’t know why they over drafted Clifford n liked him so much, nothing special or that stands out about dude at all. If I wanted a tier 2QB only two I think have a shot at becoming starters is DTR out of UCLA n Houston’s Clayton Tune.

  2. Let’s give the kid a chance. Remember 2nd rounder Brian Brohm was over drafted and beaten out by Matt Flynn was a 7th rounder who set a Packers TD record that Rodgers tied.

  3. I’m really hoping for good things from DuBose. It’s a great situation for him and I think he’s going to take advantage. Pretty much all first and second-year players in that WR room. Guys have an almost unequalled opportunity to make their names.

  4. At his age and experience it almost seems like Clifford is coming in as a seasoned journeyman out of the gate!
