2010 NFL Mock Draft: Let’s Be Realistic Prior To The Combine

If there is a slight chance they do not acquire a quarterback through trade or free agency and decide to take the risk of selecting a quarterback, they will most likely go with Clausen, since he better fits their team and we have no idea about the shoulder of Bradford.


2. Detroit Lions
