Clayborn Passes Stylez

November 27th, 2011

The Bucs set out to upgrade their pass rush in the offseason, and while it’s been clear that Adrian Clayborn is better than Stylez White of 2010, now it’s official on paper.

Stylez led the Bucs with 4.5 sacks last season (scary); now Clayborn has five on the season after a big third-quarter takedown of Matt Hasselbeck, with help from a collapsing pocket courtesy of Albert Haynesworth.

Clayborn’s relentless motor continues to be obvious to even the most novice football fan. He’s a welcome bright spot during this heinous losing streak.

Joe would be surprised if Clayborn doesn’t finish with at least a few more sacks before season’s end.

    Just wait until he really learns how to play the position. Nothing but upside!

    this dude is gets pressure all the time and when he doesnt he is usually double teamed, and when he gets a tackle he hits HAAAAARRRRDDD. I remember an article in ESPN magazine about players of the 2011 draft, and clayborn was voted the hardest hitter, he is def proving that and a bright spot on this defense. also i like bowers out there today hope he earns the starting spot eventually with bennett coming in off the bench at de and dt

    Been saying this on Twitterverse, but wanted to echo it here – this young man is the real deal. Hustle, Hustle, Hustle coupled with talent. As Macabes says ‘upside’! Go Bucs!
