2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Adrian Clayborn

Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa (6'4" 285 lbs.)

Positives: He's very quick and explosive around the edge. Uses his hands well and can get off blocks very well. Has a good bull rush and can collapse the pocket. He's solid against the run and can make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Relentless pursuer with a knack for making big plays and big hits.

Negatives: He needs to improve his first step. Has a tendacy to get off the ball late and can be knocked back by stronger offensive linemen. Needs to be more aware, he sometimes overruns plays. Charatcer concerns could hurt his stock. Plead guilty to disorderly conduct in March 2010 after being charged with assault causing bodily injury in 2009.
