Claiborne has been shifted over to the left cornerback slot during OTAs and has looked healthier than he has since his rookie season, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. "Just being able to go out and stay sticky on the receivers because I had time to actually work on it [is the biggest change]," Claiborne said Thursday. "I haven't had any nagging injury, and I actually had time to actually work at the line of scrimmage and work on getting stronger. And that helps a lot."

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Claiborne continues to be plagued by injuries, and he played in only four games last season before tearing his Achilles tendon. He's made good progress in his recovery, but in the offseason the Cowboys declined his fifth-year option and drafted Byron Jones, so 2015 represents Claiborne's very last chance in Dallas to live up to his billing as the sixth overall pick in 2012.

2014

Claiborne battled injuries again in his second season, playing only 10 games and losing his starting spot to Orlando Scandrick. He's still just two years removed from being the sixth overall pick though, and the Cowboys aren't ready to give up on him yet. Don't look for big IDP numbers, but if he can stay healthy he should help solidify the Dallas secondary.

2013

Claiborne had an up-and-down rookie season, recording 55 tackles and one interception, but the sixth overall pick in 2012 showed plenty of potential and looks poised to take a big step forward. He may not put up IDP-worthy numbers, but he'll be a key part of the Cowboys' team defense.

2012

The Cowboys traded up in the first round to nab Claiborne, the player they thought was the one difference-maker available at cornerback in this year's draft. He'll start opposite free agent Brandon Carr in Dallas' revamped secondary and has both the ball-hawking skills and willingness to get physical that make him a potential IDP star if he adapts to the NFL quickly.
