Morris Claiborne, NFL Draft 2012: Top Cornerback Holds Serve At Combine

Morris Claiborne didn't do anything particularly eye-popping at the NFL Combine on Tuesday, but he also met expectations to hold off his competitors. Both Dre Kirkpatrick and Janoris Jenkins also put together solid workouts across the entire day, but neither of them were able to blow away the other nor Claiborne. Jenkins was able to beat Claiborne in the 40-yard dash, but Kirkpatrick was not.

The three players were basically inseparable across all of the combine drills, meaning that Claiborne's stock isn't going to change at all. With all measurables virtually equal to his nearest competitors, Claiborne should be the first corner selected in the 2012 NFL Draft. He's currently No. 4 overall on Mocking The Draft's board.
