Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select Adrian Clayborn With 20th Overall Pick

With the 20th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn.

Raheem Morris continues to build upfront, a theme that can be seen with other young up and comers Detroit and St. Louis. While the Bucs took two defensive tackles last year, they still lacked a dominant end pass rusher. Clayborn is that kind of guy. The two-time 1st team All Big Ten defensive end has a motor and will get after the quarterback. I liked Clayborn because he had more than one pass rushing move, but, as is the case, injury concerns knocked him down.

If Clayborn stays healthy, the Bucs have a defensive line that is set for the next decade. If you can dominate the trenches then you'll win football games. Tampa Bay looks poised to win more football games over the next ten years. I imagine they'll look for a cornerback in round two.
