RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Adrian Clayborn.

2015

Clayborn is expected to start opposite Kroy Biermann at defensive end in his first year with the Falcons. Clayborn only played one game last season after suffering a biceps injury, but he had a solid 2013 campaign where he tallied 64 tackles and 5.5 sacks. Biermann put up similar numbers for the Falcons last season, so if Clayborn can stay healthy, he should have upwards of 50-70 tackles and similar sack numbers.

2014

With the free-agent signing of veteran RDE Michael Johnson from Cincinnati, Clayborn is expected to shift to the left side after being the starter at RDE the previous three seasons. Clayborn just hasn't quite produced at the level expected of a 1st round pick defensive end in his career so far. To that end the Bucs decided not to pick up the $6.969 million, fifth-year option on Clayborn's rookie contract this offseason. The Bucs' want to see more than 64 tackles (43 solo) and 5.5 sacks in 2014 before committing beyond next season.

2013

Clayborn starts at defensive end for the Buccaneers in their 4-3 defensive scheme.

2012

Clayborn was going to see a high snap count in Tampa Bay either way, but the news of a likely season-ending Achilles' tendon tear for 2011 second-round pick Da'Quan Bowers means Clayborn will see even more of the field in 2012. The Iowa product and 2011 first-round pick was far from dominant but still promising as a rookie, finishing with 42 tackles (29 solo), 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He should benefit both from his own improvement and the availability of defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (biceps), who missed 10 games last year.

2011

The 20th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Clayborn is expected to plug into a starting role for Tampa Bay immediately this season. With Gerald McCoy, Brian Price and Roy Miller on the interior, Clayborn should get favorable matchups on the outside. The former Iowa star had a down year in 2010, but he has the explosiveness and the motor to be a great fit for the Tampa defense. As a rookie he comes with risk, of course, but his upside is tremendous.
