    2014 stats: Played in just one game before going on injured reserve, had one tackle

    Clayborn is the perfect example of a guy who has never really done much in the NFL, has battled injuries and still has some pedigree and potential to live up to.

    Clayborn (6-3, 280 pounds) was a standout at Iowa and was a first-round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Bucs in 2011, but in his four career seasons he's only played in 36 games, including that big, glaring "one" in 2014.

    He missed most of 2012 with a torn ACL and was placed and tore his bicep in the first game of the season in 2014. He'd be a great candidate for a one-year deal on the cheap to try to build up some value with his obvious talent.
