The Washington Redskins hold the fourth overall pick in the NFL draft -- and it appears that former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen is on their radar.

The Redskins have scheduled Clausen to fly to Washington Friday night and spend Saturday visiting with team officials, including coach Mike Shanahan, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Redskins also will hold a private workout with Clausen in South Bend, Ind., on April 15, a workout that Shanahan is expected to attend, the source said.

Last week, Shanahan said he would not name a starting quarterback ahead of training camp.

Jason Campbell has been the starter since 2006, but Shanahan said he would monitor Campbell's progress throughout the team's offseason conditioning sessions and minicamp.

The Redskins already have scouted Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford and Florida's Tim Tebow. In addition, the team signed former Bears starter Rex Grossman on March 17.

Quarterbacks Colt Brennan and Richard Bartel also are on the Redskins' roster.

After meeting with Clausen on Saturday, the Redskins will turn their attention to offensive linemen next week.

They are scheduled to meet with Oklahoma State offensive tackle Russell Okung, whom many regard as a top-five pick, according to a league source. Okung already has visited the Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Redskins also are expected to bring in offensive linemen Trent Williams and Bryan Bulaga for visits next week.

Information from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter was used in this report.
