On the eve of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing their draft board and could be looking to add a cornerback again this year.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in an interesting spot in their secondary. While they ranked near the bottom of the league in pass defense, the Buccaneers have a ton of young players at the cornerback position who have valuable assets attached to them.
In 2016, the Buccaneers used their first round selection of Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves, who to this point, has not lived up to the hype of a first round pick. However, head coach Bruce Arians has instilled a sense of confidence into him and he could have a breakout year in 2019.
Last year, general manager selected two cornerbacks in the second round of the draft with Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart. While Davis looks like a solid pick and more than likely has a starting spot locked down, Stewart is still looking for comfortability in the Tampa Bay defense and will be moving to safety this season.
Even though the Buccaneers have used first or second round picks on cornerbacks over the past three years, they find themselves in position to take another one in the 2019 NFL Draft, which starts tomorrow. Here is one prospect per day of the draft the Buccaneers could be targeting.
