you think so? i was thinking about this a lot the last few days, comparing him and peterson. both lsu guys, both top picks in the draft. i prefer peterson's athletcism and size. he has almost 35 lbs on him and 2 inches. claiborne has to get in the weight room this offseason. he looked frail to me in training camp and he played like it to. he was a reluctant tackler all season and an average jam corner. i gave him a C+ for these reasons and the lack of playing making abilities...another reason why i prefer peterson. i think peterson in his first season had a lower floor but a higher ceiling than claiborne who was very consistent all season. i just expected more picks. it's disappointing to see two guys drafted after him (jenkins and hayward) surpass him in that category.
