East Rutherford, NJ — The NFL Draft is getting closer, with the first round kicking off at the end of the month on April 27th. Now that the NFL Combine and Penn State’s Pro Day are over, former Nittany Lions are making the rounds for individual meetings with prospective new homes. Although snubbed early on in the draft process, former Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford has caught the attention of several NFL front offices. After meeting with the Baltimore Ravens earlier this week, Clifford met with a new NFL team on Thursday — the New York Giants.
Former Penn State QB snubbed at NFL Combine
Sean Clifford, who finished his Penn State career with 10,661 passing yards, 86 touchdowns, and 31 interceptions, was not among the seven former Nittany Lions invited to the NFL Combine. At Penn State’s Pro Day in March, Clifford expressed his frustration with being overlooked for the Combine and his appreciation for finally having the chance to perform in front of NFL coaches and scouts inside Holuba Hall.
“I feel like I was snubbed with the Combine for sure,” Clifford said. “The body of work that I’ve had with these teams here; when I didn’t see my name as a Combine guy, I felt disrespected for sure. But, hey, it’s just more fuel to the fire.
“Being able to come out here, show the scouts what I got, and being able to really just put on a show, it’s been a lot of fun, and a good way to cap off a great career at Penn State. So I’m really thankful.”
Sean Clifford meets with New York Giants
Apparently, Sean Clifford has done enough in recent weeks to capture the attention of several NFL teams. Recently, Clifford met virtually with Denver Broncos quarterback coach Davis Webb. Earlier this week, Clifford posted a picture to his Instagram story indicating that he was visiting with the Baltimore Ravens.

While it’s unclear the level of interest that the Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens, or New York Giants have in him, it’s a promising sign that Clifford has caught the attention of several NFL teams. It wouldn’t be surprising if Clifford met with several more NFL teams in the final three weeks before the NFL Draft.
