2012 NFL Draft: Morris Claiborne Will Be the Next Darrelle Revis

It's safe to say that former LSU Tigers cornerback Morris Claiborne is the next shut-down corner to play in the NFL, just not alongside the other shut-down corner in the NFL, Darrelle Revis.

In 2010, Claiborne was the understudy of current Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson. Since most QBs were scared to throw to Peterson's side of the field, Claiborne saw most of the action. Well, in 2011, it was Claiborne who led the LSU secondary, and QBs didn't want to throw at him, so instead they threw to Tyrann Mathieu.

Claiborne won the Jim Thorpe Award in 2011 for being the best cornerback in college football, and he surely deserved it. With 51 total tackles, six interceptions and a special teams beast as well, Claiborne did it all.

Not to anyone's shock, Claiborne has drawn comparisons to NFL star corner Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets because of his unteachable ability to completely take receivers out of the game.

In personally seeing Claiborne, I have come to the conclusion that he's going to make a team very happy on the first day of the NFL Draft.

Here is why Morris Claiborne is going to be the next Darrelle Revis, if not more.
