Claiborne said he has also been invited by the NFL to be at the first day of the draft in New York City on April 26.

"It will be my first time going up there," he said. "I'll be going with my family and we're going to try and enjoy it. Coach Miles is going with me.

"I'm very excited. As a kid you dreasm about those things, going up to New York, being in the Green Room, bringing your family."
