    About Adrian Clayborn: College football standout Adrian Clayborn turned many heads last winter when he decided to put off the National Football League for one more year to return for his senior season at the University of Iowa. The 6'4" 285-pound Clayborn was rated as one of the country's top defensive ends and he was a sure-fire first-round draft choice had he decided to come out early. Instead, he decided to forego the riches and return for his senior year in the middle of December. He then celebrated his announcement by going out and dominating the Orange Bowl as he earned Most Valuable Player honors in Iowa's victory over Georgia Tech. Clayborn's individual rankings are just as lofty as well. He is ranked as one of the top defensive ends in college football.- The St. Louis Democrat
