Clausen just raised his stock

Paul KasprzakContributor IApril 17, 2010

The National Football League invited former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen to attend the upcoming Draft.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, Clausen has turned the offer down and the reason for it should make his stock rise.

Clausen was originally planning to go to New York with his family, but he never gave his answer to the NFL yet.

His plans changed after he learned his grandfather, whose wife passed recently, wouldn’t be able to attend.

So, instead Clausen will be in Palm Springs to be with his grandfather, who resides there, and the rest of his family.

In the end, it looks like ESPN’s Todd McShay was wrong about him lacking maturity and if he is there at ninth overall you can be sure the Buffalo Bills are taking him.
