QB – Notre Dame Junior 6’3″ 223 lbs
Following the firing of Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis, quarterback Jimmy Clausen has announced that he will skip his senior season and enter the 2010 NFL Draft per ESPN.com. This is great news for draftniks as the senior class of quarterbacks has been anything but impressive this season. Both Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow played relatively poorly in their conference championship games, making way for Clausen to be the top rated quarterback in the draft at this point. Fans should expect Notre Dame wide receiver Golden Tate to also declare for the NFL Draft after his quarterback made this announcement.
