Report: Clausen won't fall past 49ers at 13

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 16, 2010 12:46 PM ET
Mock drafts are all over the map on where Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen will end up, but one report out today suggests that any mock draft having Clausen going lower than 13th overall is mistaken.

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News reports, citing an NFL source, that there's little doubt the 49ers would select Clausen at 13.

The 49ers have indicated that they're sold on Alex Smith as their starter, David Carr as their backup and Nate Davis as the young quarterback they'd like to develop, but those plans would apparently get a shakeup if they can get Clausen.

San Francisco's acting G.M., Trent Baalke, said today that Smith was the 49ers' quarterback. But he also wouldn't rule out drafting a quarterback at 13, and the only quarterback who would make sense there is Clausen.

Great News for the Broncos if we would want to move out of 11 to allow a team to jump up and grab Clausen before the niners select. Not sure if anyone else likes him enough to trade up, but I thought it was worth posting..thoughts?

I can see the board melt down now if McD takes Clausen at 11. However, you're right, if a team really wants Clausen and they are willing to trade up to 11, yah, that's some good stuff right there...

Not if the dolphins trade down. Is there someone they really want at 12?

Earl Thomas, Pierre Paul, Derrick Morgan would all be top targets of the Phins if they are still on the board.
