QB Clausen goes to Carolina at No. 48

Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen's fall down the draft board has stopped at No. 48, as the Carolina Panthers select him to compete for the starting job with Oregon State product Matt Moore.

So the Seahawks ultimately decided that it wasn't worth moving up to get Clausen.

In the understatement of the day, my boy Rob Rang, who had Clausen going to Seattle at No. 6 joked: "So I was a little off."

I think we can forgive Rang for missing a pick or two because he's dialed in most of the time.
