NFL Market Share Production

morris-claiborne

Metric Recommendation: Morris Claiborne has length and that’s about it. Was an average producer at LSU in both solo tackles and pass deflections. And other than a decent rookie season, he’s either been injured or not productive. In addition to athleticism that caps his upside. I’d suggest you either buy as a cheap complimentary cornerback, or realize you can do better.

There is virtually no chance at this stage of the game for Claiborne to be anything other than an average starter. And that’s not how you build championship teams.
