Morris Claiborne says he's worth it
The Cowboys were able to move up from No. 14 to No. 6 by flipping first-round picks with St. Louis and giving up their second round pick to take Claiborne.
“They sacrificed a lot to come down to get me, but I feel like I’m worth it,” Claiborne said on a conference call. “I know my talents. I know I what I’m able to do and I feel like I can come in right away and get with the team, learn the system and compete.”
Claiborne was considered the best defensive back prospect in the draft and the Cowboys made a bold move to get him. Claiborne said New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is the best in the NFL and that he can be in that conversation soon.
“I know what kind of guy they’re looking for,” Claiborne said. “They want me to come in and play right away and be a lock down guy, and I feel like in the right hands, which I am, I feel like I can come in right away and do that.”
