Wouldn't mind this at all. We need a contingency plan. What has Alex done to keep us from drafting another QB? If Clausen is there at #13, I have no problem taking him. If we move up, I'd like to pick him as well...I'd love to keep both 1st rounders, though.
You can't argue taking a QB with people who support Alex Smith. You'll hear every excuse in the book about why he hasn't done anything to keep us from drafting another QB. They will also use other positions of need as excuses, as if a franchise QB is nothing important.
Clausen will be the real deal. People in here believe you don't need a franchise QB to win, so of course this scenario will be met with opposition. I will be at the draft party, and if this does go down, I can all but guarantee most people will be very happy even though when they come back to post here on the Zone, they will b*tch.
