I just watched a vid at nfl.com. It was said that Claiborne is one of six elite athletes in this draft, and therefore he will not fall past the Rams. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-draft/09000d5d827cd18c/Where-will-Claiborne-go?module=HP11_content_stream

To answer the question. Its hard to say he's better than Revis and DRC. Also, Prince, not Prine.

At this point, don't even know if he's better than Peterson.

If he as good as advertised, he won't be there at 9.

Trump them how? He hasn't played a down.

  • I think Claiborne is as impressive as those guys were when they were in college but we'd have to see Claiborne play in the NFL before we can really compare them.

I think he is as good a prospect as Joe Haden was.. I remember Joe Haden ran a poor 40 time at the combine, then redeemed himself at his proday.. identical to Claiborne. They are both elite in coverage. I don't remember Revis as a prospect.. did not pay attention to that position because CB wasn't a need back then.

Style wise, I'd like to compare him to Joe Haden out of those players. Both great play makers and have great ball skills.

Personally I think he is a better corner than Patrick Peterson.

And speaking of Haden, Janoris always seemed like the better corner at UF when they played together.

Claiborn and Kirkpatrick are basically Peterson and Amukamara of last year. With the exception there are 2 or 3 more good CBs in this draft. Honesty I would be happy with either and both will be impact players in the right situations.

I'd rate him in the middle of that pack of players, most scouts have him rated lower the PP7 from last draft.

His style is comparable to Haden as he's a coverage guy, but his skillset and athletic ability move him into the middle of that pack.

Not too sure about that. I believe Claiborne and Janoris are the top two CBs (Jenkins could have been the top CB taken if it wasn't for his past).

To each his own. Like I said there are some really good CBs in this draft. I just think Kirkpatrick is above him with his size and his tackling ability.

Think I would have to say Claiborne resembles DRC the most. As for Kirkpatrick, he's always been one of my favorite prospects mostly because of how much he reminds me of Chris Gamble. I'd love fore Chris to be able to mentor Dre.
