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

New, comments

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.
