Penn State Football quarterback – Sean Clifford
Relax. No need to yell at me through your screen, just hear me out.
If Sean Clifford plays a full season like he did in 2019, or like he did prior to his injury in Iowa City last season, a team is likely to take a chance on him in the late rounds of the draft.
Quarterback is such a premium position, that a team will value Clifford for his experience, and see if he can provide depth to their quarterback room.
Don’t forget, Christian Hackenberg was a second-round selection in the 2016 draft. If a team took a chance on him as a day two pick, I strongly believe that a team could take a chance on Clifford in the seventh round.
Even though it might sound a little repetitive at this point, there is certainly the chance that Clifford plays much better in year two under Mike Yurcich. He’s had a different offensive coordinator each year as a starter so far, and actually committed to Penn State when John Donovan was still the offensive coordinator, as he pointed out on the Breneman Shows Up Podcast.
Perhaps some continuity with the offensive system will really be beneficial to Clifford, and he can put together his best season yet, which would likely put him in position to be a sixth or seventh round draft choice.
