Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Quincy Black profile




Position: Linebacker

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 240 pounds

College: New Mexico

Highlights/Stats: Led the Lobos in tackles his senior season with 114, 57 solo, and registered three interceptions. Considered an excellent pass defender with good closing speed. Is better suited for outside where he can take advantage of his running ability and avoid heavy contact.

The Verdict: Fills a need for depth at linebacker after the release of Shelton Quarles, but considering this draft is not loaded with LB talent, might have been available to the Bucs on the second day of the draft. Gives the Bucs three defensive players in their four first-day picks.
