Morris Claiborne – Cornerback
The Cowboys were (and still are) expecting big things when they selected Morris Claiborne in the top ten of the 2012 NFL draft. Claiborne has not been the game changer the franchise was hoping for thus far.
Pessimists have called him a bust. Optimists have pointed to injuries as the main reason for Claiborne’s underwhelming play since being drafted. While he has appeared in twenty-five games over the past two seasons, he has suffered a myriad of nagging injuries in that time. A knee, hamstring, shoulder, concussion, and even finger have all kept Claiborne from playing at full health.
If he can stay healthy this season, it is conceivable that Claiborne can kick his early bust label and not only play at full strength, but hopefully give the Cowboys the type of production they have been hoping for as well.
