The Bucs have selected Auburn linebacker Britt with the 176th overall pick in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Britt will bring depth to a linebacker’s unit that already includes Lavonte David, Devin White and veteran backup Kevin Minter. Britt brings a ton of size and physicality to the position despite average at best athletic testing, posting a 4.75 40-yard dash, a 33-inch vertical jump and a 118-inch broad jump. But he also put up 24 reps on the bench press and had a really good showing at this year’s Senior Bowl.
Expect Britt to step in as an immediate impact player on special teams, somewhere that the Bucs were specifically looking to target on Day 3.
Here is what Pro Football Focus wrote about Britt in their 2021 NFL Draft Guide:
“Britt didn’t break into the Auburn starting lineup until his junior year in 2019. In his lone full season, he was one of the best run-defending linebackers in the country. Watching him come downhill to attack blockers and running backs is quite the sight. That said, watching Britt try to match up with more athletic backs or slots is the opposite. He’s just stiff at a position where that’s not really an option anymore.”
