The Panthers didn't have a pick on day one, but they still had their pick of QBs Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy. The Panthers selected Jimmy Clausen out of Notre Dame with the 48th overall pick and have to feel lucky that he lasted so long. Clausen was projected as the #2 QB in the draft and most though he would be a top 10 draft pick.
Jimmy Clausen steps into a great situation in Carolina, with a top running game and a skilled receiver in Steve L Smith. Expect Clausen to battle Matt Moore for the starting gig in Carolina.
