Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Meet Tanard Jackson



South_florida_syracusePosition: DB.

Height: 6-0.

Weight: 200.

College: Syracuse.

Highlights: Started his last 34 games for the Orangemen. Ranked sixth on the team in tackles in 2006 with 62, and forced two fumbles. Was named a second-team All-Big East selection last season.

The verdict: Jackson will likely move to safety with the Bucs, who began exploring that possibility at the Senior Bowl in January. He will have to make the transition after playing solely cornerback at Syracuse, but he seems to have the skills necessary.
