ADRIAN CLAYBORN, DE, BUCS
2011 stats : 7.5 sacks 42 total tackles 3FF & 1PD
Adrian had a very impressive rookie campaign for the young and rising Tampa Bay defense. Clayborn has a non-stop motor that’ll stop at nothing to get to the opposing QB. Entering his 2nd season with the continued development of McCoy and Bowers (if healthy will be a monster) the Bucs are in good shape up front as Clayborn will keep pushing.
Skies the limit for this man and opponents can’t double team him because of the presence of McCoy and Bowers, therefore, Clayborn can have his way with the guards. He had 7.5 sacks as a rookie, in 2012 I believe he’ll easily get 10 sacks and a handful of tackles. Clayborn isn’t on much draft sheets yet, but I’d jump on the wagon soon if you don’t draft one Jared Allen or JPP. Clayborn will be a solid DL2 for your IDP starters.
