Our good buddies at PFT pointed out the new cover of ESPN the Magazine, and Jimmy Clausen — and his avatar — grace the front and back cover.
ESPN’s NFL Draft preview edition features the former Notre Dame quarterback on both the front and back cover of its upcoming issue. Clausen, the real quarterback, is featured on the front, while his Avatar — a blue faced member of the Navi tribe — is featured on the back, a clever cross-promotional piece for a network known to brand just about anything possible.
It’s an interesting choice for the cover, especially with ESPN’s favorite draft analyst Todd McShay not exactly painting complimentary pictures of Clausen as a top-flight prospect.
For a look at Jimmy as a blue man, check it out here.
