Greg Schiano: Adrian Clayborn Can Be a Pro Bowl Player in 2013


Jul 1st, 2013 at 7:36 pm

 by Leo Howell




 
   Greg Schiano knows that he needs a better pass rush than the one he saw from his players in 2012. The inability to get after the passer was part of the reason for the dismal overall numbers against the pass that approached historically bad territory.
 
But the solution this offseason wasnt to pursue a pass rusher in free agency, nor was it to focus on this position through the draft. Instead, the Buccaneers chose to rely on the two high draft choices they selected in recent years to deliver on their potential. And the potential for one of those young linemen was put on display to a national audience on Monday evening.
 
Greg Schiano joined NFL Total Access live and told the assembled analysts that he felt Adrian Clayborn could mimic the 2012 season of Gerald McCoy by coming off of an injury and stepping into the starting role to deliver a Pro Bowl season. This is a good bit of pressure to put on Clayborn, so can he deliver despite these high expectations?
 
Clayborn has never been a flashy player. Hes not the fastest and hes not the strongest to ever play defensive end. But hes a smart player who has a great blend of power and speed, and with the threat of Gerald McCoy growing on the interior of the defensive line, Clayborn will get his chances in 2013.
 
Hes going to have to stay healthy, and hes going to have to take a step forward. But much like McCoy in 2012, Clayborn enters 2013 as a slight disappointment who has yet to deliver on his first round potential and promise. But Greg Schiano was willing to announce on national TV that he thought Clayborn, more than even his fellow promising defensive end DaQuan Bowers, was a potential Pro Bowl player and the answer to the Bucs pass rush needs.

I've been saying it for awhile now, but that guy is going to get some pineapple in his diet eventually.

He'll come back as good as his rookie season, or better imo (which wasn't exactly bad).

Position-wise, where he's situated is almost the best spot on the field to wreak havoc now, so I expect a good season from him.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

He can do it. He did it sounds a lot better though.

Love his motor and effort, but Clayborn has done very little to impress.
He was a complete non factor last year prior to his injury.

That's a little optimistic

I'm sure he will do well, but Bowers will be better IMO.

I think if Clayborn reaches his ceiling he can make 1-2 Pro Bows over the course of his career like Charles Grant or Kyle Vanden Bosch, but it's going to be hard with Jason Pierre-Paul basically the same age and both the guys in Carolina poised to take the next step, too.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

ill take an 8 sack rookie season.  and if the team defense is playing as well as it did most of the time he was out there last season, i really dont care about personal stats.  10 of the 11 qtrs clayborn played last season our defense was lights out.

And you know this from watching him for two games before his injury? So you're going to throw out the entire rookie season in lieu of 2, maybe it was 3 games, before he went on the IR?
