Draft Result

Drafted in the 2008 Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1st round with the #20 pick.
Buccs pass on Rashard Mendenhall and their choice of wide receiver options to take a raw corner. Talib has upside but also has character concerns. A Tampa 2 team taking a 1st round corner is a bit of a surprise.


Excellent all-around athlete with playmaking ability. Has the size team's crave at the position. A playmaker with return skills. Also played wide receiver at Kansas.


Raw coverage skills. More of a gambler than a technician. Has the build for press coverage but does he have the skills for it. Would have benefitted from another year in college.
