Not particularly big or fast, played on great defenses in college, may have some issues with learning and retention. Too early to call him a bust though.

the knock on some of these 'Bama players has sometimes been that when they reach Bama and play there for 3-4 years they have already peaked and hit their ceiling. There isn't much room to grow in the NFL and get better.

That and they actually test for PEDs in the NFL.

Here's the article from SB Nation, http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2013/10/1/4790610/morris-claiborne-struggles-dallas-cowboys

I thought the topic was quite relevant since he was such a hot topic only one year ago. CB prospects are already being talked about for next year as well. Some, not all, were even disappointed we didn't trade our second like the cowboys did (ie Luke and Amini for Morris). WOW

FWIW he scored a 4 on the Wonderlic and blew it off because it "had nothing to do with football". Dude is lazy.

Honestly, out of the dominating teams Bama has produced since Saban got there, who is currently the best player in the NFL from there? 

 

Julio Jones?

Hightower?

I'll show you mine if you treat me to Golden Coral.

 

How about if you keep your clothes on and we all chip in for a free buffet.

Right. LSU and BAMA players. Usually the strongest of the SEC. 

 

I've adjusted the OP. Peterson from LSU and Jones from Bama? two best in the league despite the numerous players put into the NFL and loaded teams they have annually?
