Local L.S.U. prospect Morris Claiborne will head to the Dallas Cowboys


In a move that will make any diehard New Orleans Saints fan sick, L.S.U. cornerback Morris Claiborne was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the sixth pick of the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Claiborne was a dominant cornerback at L.S.U. and had eleven interceptions in the past two seasons.  He will bring a much needed presence to the Cowboys secondary.

The Cowboys other first round pick cornerback, Mike Jenkins, had begun on a downward spiral.  The Saints and Cowboys will face each other this season at Dallas.
