The Bucs decided against exercising Adrian Clayborn's fifth-year option in his rookie contract, so this is a contract year for the often disappointing defensive end. Clayborn does not ideally fit Lovie Smith's version of the 4-3, but the team lacks quality depth at the position, so he will likely see plenty of playing time. A solid DL3 option. (May 13)

Buccaneers | Competition for Adrian Clayborn (Tue Jul 15, 11:58 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Adrian Clayborn will need a solid showing in camp to hold on to his starting job, according to Pat Yasinskas of DE William Gholston, DE Da'Quan Bowers and DE Steven Means are other candidates for the job.

Our View: Gholston and Bowers could make things interesting, but Clayborn has more upside even though he's been a disappointment during his career. He's not a great fit for Lovie Smith's defense, but the Bucs really don't have much of a choice.
