YEAR IN REVIEW: Claiborne vs 1st Round CBs (2008-2010)

Before the season started, I compiled the numbers of all the 1st Round CBs drafted back to 2008 that played at least 700 snaps for their team as a rookie. I then averaged them out to find out what we should "expect" from Claiborne.

You can find that post HERE.

The list of these CBs who meets the aforementioned criteria includes: Joe Haden, Kareem Jackson, Vontae Davis, Devin McCourty, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Antoine Cason.


Here are their averaged results + his numbers.

THEM: 904 snaps allowing 84 targets, 51 receptions (61% comp), 5 TDs allowed, 4 INTs and 9 PDs.
HIM: 909 snaps allowing 69 targets, 48 receptions (69.6% comp), 4 TDs allowed, 1 INTs and 7 PDs.

He's nearly on par with their numbers. He allowed one fewer TD but also had 3 fewer INTs and 2 fewer PDs. I think, overall, for being a rookie... Claiborne had acceptable rookie season.

Next season, I'd like to see a bit more sound tackling from Claiborne, as well as him being more physical with the WRs on the line.
