Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1st round with the #20 pick.
A high effort guy with great agility and an excellent natural pass rusher, Clayborn fits in very well next to Tampa's two defensive tackles from last year's draft. He should start immediately for Tampa Bay and give them their first real pass rushing threat since the heyday of Simeon Rice.
