Cornerback

Morris Claiborne, Dallas Cowboys

"The Cowboys roped in free agent Brandon Carr to be a solid cover corner on one side, so Claiborne will have less pressure to immediately become a shutdown type. He can be more aggressive and gamble in going after the ball, and the resulting interceptions will be provide Dallas with much-needed game-changing plays in the secondary. He'll have the impact Cleveland's Joe Haden had as a rookie two years ago."
