After signing Carr to a huge contract, I don't think in the long run Claiborne will be better than a Brockers/Konz tandum.
Brockers would be starting on this defense this season. He has played 6 games and has 2.5 sacks for the rams and is getting better.
DL and OL are more important than 2 stud CB's. You can win in this league without shut down CB's, you can't without a good DL and OL.
I am with you to some degree, but they felt Claiborne was going to be special and to there credit he's already very good. At the time I would have stayed put for Brockers or moved up a few spots to pick Cox, but I like Claiborne and the defense is infintely better with he and Carr at the corners.
