With the news coming down that Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen will not throw or work out at the NFL combine, many are wondering how his NFL draft stock will be affected. The simple answer: not at all.

Clausen will have the opportunity to work out in front of scouts later in the draft process, and he still can participate in the medical and interview portions of the combine. Those parts are in many ways more meaningful than drills.
