Profile
Had an excellent rookie season and missed only one start at right corner when the Bucs opened their Week 2 game in a heavy 5-3 run defense formation. 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.
