The Bucs are staying busy as the draft approaches, conducting Top 30 visits with multiple prospects. On Monday, they brought in Auburn corner Roger McCreary. Today, it appears that Nebraska cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt is on site. Taylor-Britt posted a photo of the AdventHealth indoor facility on his Instagram story.

With Taylor-Britt, the Bucs continue to buck the trend of taller cornerbacks they are accustomed to drafting. Most of the corners on the roster are 6-0 or taller, the lone exception being Dee Delaney. Though Taylor-Britt doesn’t have the traditional height Tampa Bay looks for, he possesses good length with his 31 1/2-inch arms and 76-inch wingspan.

The Nebraska alum is a perfect fit for the Bucs defense as well, excelling in zone coverage. Projecting more as a perimeter corner in the NFL, he has the intangibles to also play in the slot. But where Taylor-Britt really shines is in the run game. He’s a ferocious tackler that can shed blocks and come downhill. And the senior has the speed to stick with quicker receivers, running a 4.36 40 at the Combine.

Taylor-Britt was all over the field during his collegiate career. His senior year he totaled 51 tackles, 11 pass deflections a sack and an interception. Over his four years at Nebraska he racked up 140 tackles, 10 tackles-for-loss, 22 pass deflections, five interceptions, four forced fumbles and 2.5 sacks. Taylor-Britt was a team captain last season and made the All-Big Ten second team at corner. Also, Taylor-Britt was a quarterback in high school, throwing for over 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns his senior year.

While the Bucs continue to look at all options in the draft, corner could be a position to watch. Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are free agents next season and the team was decimated with injuries last year. Having quality depth in the corner room is critical for 2022. It also doesn’t hurt that Taylor-Britt played at GM Jason Licht’s alma mater.

Never heard of him, honestly. Sounds like he could be a solid pick for us. What round is he projected to go in?..

Britt sounds great. Our biggest problem last year was missed tackles. It was infuriating watching guys get 9 yards, 15 yards on 3-4 missed tackles. I don’t care about the height if he’s long and has ups and can shed blocks and is a tackling machine!
we will hopefully be keeping Dean with Davis but we definitely need a 3rd to replace SMB and depth.

I’m not one to call a player a bust after one season, but I’ll be shocked if Darden isn’t a huge bust. I actually defended RoJo for years. Darden is a terrible returner/WR and a fumble waiting to happen for sure. I hope Bucs draft a Safety and a CB. This secondary has been crap for so long. Everyone says DT is bigger need for Bucs but for this year when we are trying to win it all not planning down the road I don’t agree. Especially if Suh is back.
