Tampa Bay must have noticed the NFC South drafting receivers. With the third selection of the second round, the Bucs pick up their second cornerback of the night with the selection of Carlton Davis from Auburn.

Davis is another physical receiver, much like the earlier selection of M.J. Stewart. A raw talent, the Auburn product is not afraid of laying the wood. Oh yeah, and he plays with lots of attitude.

Below is Lance Zierlein’s draft overview for Davis:

Davis’ combination of height, weight, length and ball skills make him a nuisance that college wide receivers could do without on Saturdays. Davis has some struggles mirroring routes in space and is best as a full-time press corner who is able to use his length and strength to take wideouts out of their game. Davis plays with confidence and some edge and was able to show and prove against NFL-caliber talent over the last three years. In the right scheme, he could become a high-impact starter.
