Profile
Started every game he played for the Buccaneers until being traded to the St.Louis Rams in October 2014 when it was clear his style of safety play did not suit the Cover 2 defense that the Bucs began to operate in 2014. Hence having been the seventh overall pick of the 2012 draft, will have to be seen as a bust in terms of performance from such a high draft position. Had been the focal point of an Alabama defense in college that paced the country in scoring defense and total defense in 2011. Switched to the 23 jersey in 2013 to allow Darrelle Revis to keep his regular 24 number.
