2011 NFL Mock Draft: Tampa Bay Adds Pass Rusher Adrian Clayborn
2011 NFL Mock Draft Sees Young Bucs Add Potential Impact Pass Rusher Adrian Clayborn
Tampa Bay's rebuilding project went quicker than anyone expected with them winning 10 games last year. Josh Freeman looks like a star at quarterback. They have playmakers on offense like LeGarrette Blounte, Mike Williams and Kellen Winslow.

The one area that was a disappointment last year, and needs an upgrade heading into 2011, was the defensive line. Gerald McCoy had a weak (and injury-plagued) rookie campaign, which didn't help matters.
Adrian Clayborn has the potential to be a dynamic pass rusher off the edge. He will need time to adapt to an NFL system and shouldn't play right away. If Raheem Morris can work his magic with Clayborn, this Tampa Bay team will be scary good in 2011 and for many years after that.
