In 2010, Mel Kiper Said He Would Quit If Jimmy Clausen Wasn’t A Successful NFL QB

If Mel Kiper Jr. is a man of his word, this will be his last time covering the NFL draft at ESPN.

On the April 19th, 2010, the network’s lead draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. was trying to get a point across to Todd McShay about how highly he had Notre Dame star QB Jimmy Clausen. In fact, Kiper even wagered his job on it, declaring a promise to leave ESPN if Clausen didn’t eventually turn out to be a successful NFL quarterback within 8 years. That 8 years is just about up.

“If Jimmy Clausen is not a successful quarterback in the NFL, I’m done. That’s it. I’m out.”

McShay asked the following question: “What is your time frame, Mel? When do we make that assessment?”

Kiper answered “I want eight years.”

McShay countered, “It will only take three years, Mel. We can tell inside three years.”

Kiper replied, “I want eight.”

Clausen, the number four rated prospect on Kiper’s board, was selected at pick 48 by the Panthers, where he stuck around for only 3 seasons. He made his way to Chicago and is currently residing in Baltimore with the Ravens. (Yep, you just learned Jimmy Clausen plays for the Ravens.)

It may be worth noting none of those years were successful. It’s about that time Mel.

  9. According to my study, after a in foreclosure home is sold at a bidding, it is common for that borrower to be able to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the bank loan. There are many financial institutions who seek to have all expenses and liens repaid by the up coming buyer. On the other hand, depending on specified programs, rules, and state guidelines there may be several loans which are not easily sorted out through the switch of loans. Therefore, the obligation still lies on the debtor that has had his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this website.

  11. Thanks a lot for your post. I’d prefer to write my opinion that the tariff of car insurance varies from one insurance plan to another, since there are so many different issues which play a role in the overall cost. Such as, the make and model of the automobile will have a large bearing on the fee. A reliable older family automobile will have an inexpensive premium than a flashy sports vehicle.
