Last week I took a look at the players who are among the top projected value picks in the 2012 NFL draft.

Claiborne brings a lot of strengths to the cornerback skill table, but there are reasons to think he may not be a dominant player in coverage at the NFL level.

A seven-game review of his 2011 performance against the toughest passing offenses the Tigers faced showed Claiborne allowed 12 completions/defensive penalties in 25 targets for 188 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.
