BBV 2012 Community Mock Draft: Bucs Select ... Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Our fifth overall selection in the Big Blue View 2012 Community Mock Draft is being made for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a new member of the community, 'Carmine5520.' Playing the role of general manager for the Bucs, 'Carmine' has selected Morris Claiborne, cornerback. LSU.

No. 5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Although the Bucs had a dreadful 2011 season, they really don't appear to have many glaring needs, other than in the secondary. Talib is a parking ticket away from a suspension, Ronde Barber is nearly a senior citizen and Eric Wright is solid but unspectacular. When the best player on the board plays a position of need the pick is a no-brainer. Claiborne would be the selection here, even if Richardson hadn't been picked. -- Carmine 5520

A long-time BBV member 'pataroons,' is now on the clock for the St. Louis Rams.
