Why the heck is everybody making it seem like the DE in the first round is FULLY responsible for the vaunted pass rush this season? I do believe we're going to have a healthy Gerald McCoy and Brian Price so the new DE won't have too much focus on him trying to be the "guy" right now. Its a unit thing, I'll be happy as long as get good value from a DE.
Why would you hate the pick? Clayborn > ANY DE on the Bucs current roster. In my twitter lang can you say #WINNING?
Because in round 1 I'm not drafting a guy to just be part of the team. I'm drafting a guy to be a playmaker so if just want a guy to sponge off McCoy I can wait until later. If you like Clayborn I'm sure you want the "part of the team" aspect of things because that's what he's gonna be.

It's the arm. The Erbs Palsy. Mike Mayock was just talking about it on NFL Network and saying how he believes Clayborn will slide out of the first round. He has to play at RE because of the arm. Lacking the versatility to move around on the line and do different things severely limits his value to most teams. It comes down to the question "Is he the pass rusher you want on the right side for the next decade?" If there is any hesitation to answering yes, then he is probably not the guy you want to take in the first round...cause if he doesn't get the production you want at RE, you can't just move him to LE like you would any other DE. That's a lot of unnecessary risk in the first round.
