Notre Dame junior
Notre Dame faces USC in South Bend this weekend, which will be a tough test for Clausen. But his biggest challenge may come at the end of the season when Notre Dame travels to Pittsburgh on Nov. 14, then Stanford two weeks later. If Clausen has a kryptonite, it's playing on the road. Last season 11 of his 17 interceptions came during away games and as a freshman it was four of six picks. How Clausen performs in these games, which are likely to be meaningful for both opponents, will go a long way on how scouts ultimately grade him.
Here's the latest word from the scouting community on who's moving up and down draft boards through six weeks of college football.
