Jimmy Clausen, the most prolific passer in Notre Dame history, is still on board heading into the second round of the NFL draft which starts at 6 p.m. Friday.
Might the Oakland Raiders come away with a steal at No. 39 and land themselves a potential franchise quarterback (at a reduced rate!) to go along with the top-notch linebacker Rolando McClain from Alabama that they drafted No. 8?
Let's look at the draft order for Round 2, assuming there are no trades:
34. Vikings (from Lions)
37. Eagles (from Redskins)
And now let's look at the quarterbacks already on these teams' rosters:
33. Rams - Sam Bradford, A.J. Feely
34. Vikings (from Lions) - Brett Favre, Tarvaris Jackson
35. Buccaneers - Josh Freeman
36. Chiefs - Matt Cassel, Brodie Croyle
37. Eagles (from Redskins) - Kevin Kolb, Michael Vick
38. Browns - Jake Delhomme
39. Raiders - JaMarcus Russell, Bruce Gradkowski
The Rams just drafted Bradford, the Vikings have Favre (maybe) but won't draft over Jackson at this point. The Bucs just invested in Freeman last year. The Chiefs could possibly make a play as insurance for a shaky Cassel, but doubtful. The Eagles dealt Donovan McNabb because they think Kolb is their guy. The Browns signed Delhomme in the offseason, but he's not that good, so new GM Mike Holmgren may consider taking Clausen.
If not, he'll fall into Al Davis' lap at No. 39. Of course, Davis has been known to go rogue in his draft picks. He might just announce "Bob Glauber" as his draft pick.
