  • Morris Claiborne's Bio

    • email print

  • 2012: Started 15 games. … Totaled 55 tackles, with 1 interception, 8 passes defensed, 1 forced fumbled and 2 fumble recoveries. … Had career-high 10 tackles (9 solo) and caused a fumble in 34-31 Week 16 loss to New Orleans. … Recorded first career pick in 19-14 Week 7 victory over Carolina Panthers.
    COLLEGE: Claiborne started the last 26 games he played at LSU, tallying 95 tackles, 11 interceptions with one returned for a touchdown while averaging 25.38 yards-per-kickoff return, returning 24 for 609 yards with a touchdown. … His knack for intercepting passes should come as no surprise as Claiborne was recruited to play wide receiver, but moved to defensive back prior to his freshman season due to the recommendation of former teammate Patrick Peterson, who was taken by Arizona just one spot higher than Claiborne in the 2011 NFL Draft. … Through his three collegiate seasons, Claiborne put his athletic talents on display. He has the innate ability of jumping routes and is capable of making quick reads and reacting to the ball. He excels in man coverage, and his quick hands and reaction time allow him to play the ball in the air.
    HIGH SCHOOL: Starred at quarterback, defensive back and wide receiver at Fair Park High School in Shreveport. … Accounted for more than 2,000 all-purpose yards and 30 touchdowns as a senior quarterback. … Three-time all-district selection also lettered in basketball, baseball and track. … Captured the Class 4A state title in the 100-meters with a 10.76 time as a senior.
