Profile
2nd round pick from 2013 who has become a solid and dependable starter at cornerback in his first two NFL seasons. Started 14 games in his second season missing only one through a run formation and was inactive through injury for the Baltimore game. Led the Bucs in interceptions and had a touchdown return in the win over Washington. Had an excellent rookie season and ranked 2nd on the team in interceptions and proved adept in pass coverage in spite of being tested more than most corners simply from playing opposite Darrelle Revis. Was regarded as one of the top cornerbacks in the 2013 draft and the Bucs' top selection having traded away their 1st round pick. Started 45 games in four seasons at Mississippi State and had 16 interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns. Was the winner of the 2012 Jim Thorpe Award for the best college defensive back.
