NO. 4 MORRIS CLAIBORNE

LSU defensive back

Why he's No. 4: Speedy cover corner who should emerge for LSU after Patrick Peterson declared early for the NFL draft. Claiborne had five interceptions last season and 11 passes defensed. Claiborne also could see time returning kickoffs again this season.

Key number: 101, number of return yards for Claiborne during his five interceptions last season.

Fun fact: Clocked 10.76 seconds to win the Louisiana Class 4A state title in the 100 meters as a high school senior.
