Prospect of The Week: Morris Claiborne

Two clear cut favorites in the draft are Luck & Griffin, but what about the other hundreds of players that have the potential to be a standout on any NFL team? There are many positions that make up a great football team besides the quarterbacks. So who is the next standout on the other side of the ball? For instance, LSU CB, Morris Claiborne.

Morris Claiborne


Height: 5’11

Weight: 188lbs

College: LSU

40 Time: 4.50

Claiborne deciding to forgo his senior year at LSU showed great potential during the combine and is lived in many mock drafts as a first round pick. His strengths consist of his long arms and body that would frighten any receiver. He has the ability to play in man on man coverage and zone which is something any team would be happy to have. Claiborne is an all-around athlete who is explosive and fast, with the only downside being he can sometimes get lazy with his technique that can be a problem for a team in the long stretch. Besides that, Claiborne has a lot of potential and could land on a team with a great need for defensive pass coverage like the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders and the Minnesota Vikings.
