NFL Mock Draft 2012: Morris Claiborne Becoming Near Unanimous Choice For Buccaneers

The latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft is up over at Revenge of the Birds, SB Nation's Arizona Cardinals blog, and it doesn't have a ton of surprises. In fact, it starts off with something we've seen almost constantly, Morris Claiborne to the Buccaneers at No. 5.

Claiborne is a future lockdown corner and worthy of a top five pick.

The Jaguars make the lone surprise early in this Mock, reaching a bit for South Carolina WR Alshon Jeffery.

The Jaguars put weapons around Gabbert to help him grow into the NFL QB they hope he can be and hope to make their running game even more deadly.

Finally the Dolphins, who take Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin.

Martin slides in at RT and creates a tackle tandem with Long that makes Miami and ideal location for Flynn, Manning, or any other QB.
