Combine Dish: Offensive players who need to do well

Clausen has been hyped as a possible top-10 pick. Even though he is not throwing at the Combine, he needs a strong appearance to be drafted that high. Right off the bat, he can allay concerns that he is under 6-2, which would hurt his draft status. Then, Clausen will get to sit down with NFL teams and prove himself in interviews. Any team interested in drafting Clausen in the first round will most likely schedule a longer interview with him after the Combine, but these initial meetings will give teams insight into Clausen’s intelligence, communication skills and presence.
