    C average play, below average tackling, average coverage..About as average as they get. Not bad for a rookie. Better than Ball and some of the scrubs we had here before.

    It would be interesting if we had his PFF completions against stats, I believe that they must be close to the bottom for starters. It's got to be one of the hardest rookie positions in the game, but I thought that he had a rough year regardless.

    He didn't seem to have many mental lapses, which is admirable for a rookie, more concerning from my perspective though, was his lack of quickness. He was supposed to be a really gifted physical player, and I didn't see much evidence of that. I think that he played tentatively for the same reason an aging Newman did... he couldn't keep up with receivers.

    Yeah or completions against? I saw a stat earlier in the year that was really bad, but he improved somewhat after that.

    He's hit hard on short quick passes, but he had a pretty good season. B

    Him and Carr are completely different in man coverage. Too bad they couldn't play it

    cb has to be one of the hardest positions to play in the NFL. Give him another year or two before you grade him. I think he will be a pro bowler eventually.

    Agreed.

    Makes you wonder what the heck the front-office was thinking extending Sensabaugh last season and relying on unproven Barry Church as the starting safeties.

    IMHO, they way over-invested in the CB position and because of it basically fielded what may have been the worst set of starting and backup safeties in the NFL.

    Any surprise the pass defense ranking actually dropped form 2011 and was ranked as one of the worst in the NFL?

    He's going to how a nice career.
    I'm not really sure how to grade a rookie.
    As a "rookie"? B+ as a NFL CB? B-/C+

    I'm also not sure I would have made that trade in hindsite either. He may end up being the 3-4th best CB in that draft, so burning a mid 1st and second rounder is rich.
    But if he gives us 8-10 strong years, it was probably worth it.

    did not like the trade up for a AVERAGE CB

    we lost out on some good O linemen

    what we needed

    not band aids like Livings and Birdenow

    Teams hardly threw at him other than on short routes where its virtually impossible to attack the ball.

    If Dallas can ever get quality safety play and keep Lee and Carter healthy to patrol the middle QBs will have to challenge our corners and we will see how good they really are. Claiborne will flourish if that ever happens.

    We must have read different scouting reports.

    Everything I came across said this guy had amazing ball skills and was pretty much like a WR at DB.

    I agree, I wouldn't give him an A because of it but a "B". Like most said He's a rookie. The one thing I like about him is that he kept going FOR the ball. If he was trying to bring his man down or coming in for a gang takle he always went for the ball.

    Also Rob Ryans system take a lot of learn I think he shows how smart he is to pick it up and not have to many bad plays, all things said he can only get better.

    For a rookie? Outstanding. A for coverage, probably a C for tackling.

    Looks like he'll be something really special.
