Jimmy Clausen strictly a backup in 2010?

There are murmurs that Panthers rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen is merely battling for the second string job behind starter Matt Moore. When Clausen was drafted in the second round, many expected that the Golden Domer would compete for the No. 1 job right away. After all, Clausen is an accurate passer who ran a pro style offense under Charlie Weis at Notre Dame. And, let’s be honest: the Panthers wouldn’t have drafted him if they were 100 percent confident in Matt Moore.

But ESPN’s Pat Yasinkas writes that Moore is looking sharp in training camp thus far, while Clausen is running with the third team. Moore posted impressive numbers in his five starts last season, going 4-1 and finishing the season with a passer rating of 98.5. But on film, it was apparent that the soon-to-be 26-year-old lacks ideal arm strength and first-class pocket presence. Once opponents become more familiar with Moore, they’ll exploit his shortcomings. (We’ve seen guys like this before…Derek Anderson and Tommy Maddox are the first two who come to mind.)

Clausen might be a distant backup right now, but make no mistake: he’ll be relevant at some point in 2010. Don’t expect him to stay behind fellow rookie Tony Pike (a sixth-rounder) on the depth chart.
