#6: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
While the "Honey Badger," Tyrann Mathieu, piled up the headlines at LSU, the best cornerback on the team was quietly dominant all season. Currently a top-five player on my Big Board, Claiborne is the top cornerback in the draft. He has good length at 6-foot-1 and is a physical player at more than 180 pounds. The Redskins will need help at corner headed into 2012, particularly in a division in which the Giants, Cowboys and Eagles have elite talent at wide receiver. While not quite the athlete, Claiborne is actually a better pure cover corner than Patrick Peterson, the No. 5 overall pick from last year.
Off the board in order was: Luck (IND), Blackmon (STL), Kalil (MIN), RG3 (CLE), T. Richardson (TB).
Kiper had Alshon Jeffery going to the 49ers with the 31st pick.
Do you agree with Kiper's pick if the Redskins had to pick at #6?
