Hey Guys, was reading PFT articles and stumbled across a copy of Mayocks opinion on Clausens pro day.
"The most interesting opinion of the day from Mayock was about where Clausen will land in the draft. He sees Clausen as a "top ten talent" that won't get past San Francisco at pick No. 17. "
I found that quite disappointing. I have respect for Mayock as I think the guy really does his work on his prospects and I value his opinion. It has come in quite handy with my dynasty fantasy football leagues since we keep our roster and build our fantasy teams through rookie drafts like a real nfl team does. Its alot of fun.
But ive digressed. Mayock essentially insinuates that the 49ers should take hiim at 17. In the end, I would love to have dreams of a Notre Dame Alumni wearing a 49ers jersey throwing for massive touchdowns and winning championships, but in all reality.... if the 49ers draft Clausen its going to do one of two things. It will either motivate him and really bring out his abilities so he can be what every 49er fan was hoping for when he was taken #1 overall. OR he totally bombs by midseason and we throw Carr/Clausen in. Either way is bad because if smith does well we have a highly priced backup sitting on the bench doing nothing.
