The Bucs know they have a need in the secondary. Whether it’s at safety or at cornerback, we certainly expect there to be some sort of secondary selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The team has already brought in the like of Florida State safety Derwin James and Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander, and now, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Iowa’s Josh Jackson will be next on the list.
Jackson was one of the most impressive cornerbacks in the country last season with eight interceptions. Jackson is a 6-foot, 195-pound cornerback who does his best work in off coverage. That fits Tampa Bay’s style very well. He’ll be a first round pick, but the Bucs could likely still trade down from No. 7 and select him elsewhere.
