Cornerback prospect Morris Claiborne told the New Orleans Times-Picayune on Thursday that he is going to have surgery on his left wrist Friday.

Claiborne is thought to be one of the best defensive backs available in the 2012 NFL Draft (NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock rates Claiborne as the top cornerback in this year's draft). He told the newspaper that he tore a ligament in the wrist during a game against Alabama in November, and played the rest of the 2011 season with the injury.

He also told the newspaper that he received an invitation from the NFL to take part in the league's presentation of the draft in New York on April 26.

Claiborne disclosed his plans to have surgery after LSU had its pro day on Thursday. According to the newspaper, Claiborne ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds.

If he fell to 11 it would be a no-brainer. No way it happens, though

We don't need no stinking Claiborne! We have Routt!
