The second pick of Round 2, the Bucs grab a cornerback in M.J. Stewart.

The Bucs needed to address their secondary and they did. Not a popular pick among fans already, but he is very physical.

Below is Lance Zierlein’s overview on Stewart:

Stewart is well-built and very physical in both his coverage and his run support. He’s athletic enough to handle man coverage duties from a variety of techniques whether playing outside or inside and he has the instincts, ball skills and toughness to transition to safety if need be. Stewart can be deployed in a variety of positions in the secondary which should lend itself to early playing time for him with a starter’s role in his future.

We Have A Trade

The Bucs traded their 56th pick with New England shortly after selecting Stewart. They now have the 63rd in the second round. Also pick up the 117th selection.
