Former Notre Dame QB Clausen will throw to WR Floyd at pro day

When WR prospect Michael Floyd works out at the Notre Dame pro day, the football will be launched by a familiar arm — that of former Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen.

Floyd is expected to be one of the top receivers taken in the draft this April. He’s got a lot of upside. He’s big and fast, and he’s caught a lot of passes. He was suspended in 2011 after being charged with a DUI, but otherwise he’s what you want in a receiver: he’s big and tall and he’s got really good hands. He should be taken somewhere between No. 10 and No. 17 in the first round.

According to the South Bend Tribune, 16 of Floyd’s 37 touchdown passes were the result of a connection between Clausen and Floyd.

Clausen was selected by the Panthers in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He made 10 starts in the 2010 season, throwing for 1,558 yards and three touchdowns while having nine passes picked off. He did not attempt a pass in 2011.
