The cornerback position is arguably the Buccaneers’ most glaring need. Even though general manager Jason Licht invested a pair of Day 2 picks at the spot a year ago.
Tampa Bay doesn’t have an answer at one of their outside cornerback spots. Second-round pick Carlton Davis faired well, but with Brent Grimes not in the picture, the Bucs will need to invest either a ton of money in free agency or one of their top Draft picks to address the situation.
The Bucs decided to invest in LSU’s Greedy Williams in this Mock Draft. Williams spent a pair of seasons as the starter for the Tigers. He picked off eight passes and defended 19.
Williams displayed true traits of a lockdown cornerback. He had a knack for forcing turnovers, and his impressive measurables will make it easier for him to handle the talented receivers in the NFC South.
It may be a risk for the Buccaneers to start a pair of young cornerbacks in 2019, but having short term answers hasn’t helped in recent years.
