A third-round draft pick out of LSU, Beckwith played in all 16 games as a rookie in 2017, starting nine of them, and finished the season with 73 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, one forced fumble and one sack.
But Beckwith would suffer an ankle injury in a car accident the following April before spending the entirety of the 2018 and 2019 seasons on the Bucs’ injured reserve/non-football injury list, never returning to the field for Tampa Bay.
