The scouts all gave Claiborne high grades, and they mostly all agree that Claiborne is a more complete DB than Patrick Peterson was coming out of college. Peterson was a Pro Bowler in 2011, however it was as a kick and punt returner. Regardless of why he was in the Pro Bowl, he was a very solid Cornerback and Claiborne was a very solid selection for the Dallas Cowboys at a position that they needed to load up in so that they can defend the receiving weapons that the other NFC East teams are loading up with.
