Morris Claiborne/CB/LSU:   Sudden and smooth in transition. Quick feet and turns his hips fluidly. Exceptional ball skills and closing speed.

Nothing flawed about LSU's joy

ATLANTA LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne reminded me very much of a 2-year-old Saturday. This is a compliment, I promise. He flashed all of the best parts of that age, none of the bad ones.
