Buccaneers Go DE Adrian Clayborn with the 20th Overall Pick

The Bucs took a guy who was the team captain at Iowa, and they hope that Adrian Clayborn can be the guy that helps their defense reach the next level in 2011 and beyond.

Here’s our Scouting Report on Clayborn:

Strengths: Has good measurables for the position. A very good combination of power and athleticism; flashing the suddenness off the snap to get around the edge. Shows the functional strength to contain the edge in run support or create traffic in one-on-one matchups.

Can stack and shed on the ball carrier. Impressive foot quickness in the short areas and has good speed for a big man to chase down the line of scrimmage and pursue to the opposite side. Gives good effort and plays to the whistle. Clayborn has very good awareness and is controlled and focused on snaps; showing that he could quickly drop into coverage as he noticed a play developing towards him, disrupting the play.
