Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis knows Jimmy Clausen better than perhaps anyone involved in the NFL Draft. Weis recruited him from high school and coached him throughout his entire tenure with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
So it's no surprise then that NFL teams have been calling Weis to pick his brain about the potential first round pick.
"We know Charlie Weis loves Clausen and has been taking calls from NFL teams about him," Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post writes. "Weis is a fully behind Clausen the player and the person."
I wonder if Weis is using that to the Chiefs advantage. A good scenario for the Chiefs would be if Clausen were available when they came to pick. Perhaps Weis can convince some team that Clausen is such a can't-miss prospect that they need to trade up to get him.
All the way to the fifth spot.
