Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne is looking for some consistency in his game after an up and down training camp.
While we've seen flashes, he needs a level of consistency to be an NFL cornerback, and he knows it.
“I catch myself thinking a lot,” he told ESPNDallas.com. “I try not to think at all. I try just to go play. The coaching staff and Rob (Ryan), they’re doing a great job of eliminating some of the stuff, so I can not have to think and just go out and play.”
Claiborne missed the entire offseason of conditioning while recovering from wrist surgery, and also missed a week in due to a sprained MCL in his left knee, but that's no excuse. High hopes are this guy to perform and a lot is expected from the coaching staff as he learns the ropes.
“I know it’s a learning curve,” Claiborne said. “Certain mistakes that I make, some of the coaches expect me to make them, but I don’t expect me to make them. I just try to learn from them and fix it.”
