TAMPA — Kentucky defensive back Mike Edwards is a play-maker. Pure and simple. That’s why the Bucs drafted him in the third round Friday night.Sure, it appears Tampa Bay is loading up on defensive backs. They took three on Friday. This is on the heels of the Bucs taking three defensive backs in the 2018 NFL draft.But Bucs general manager Jason Licht says he wasn’t happy with the play in the secondary a year ago. Vernon Hargreaves played in only one game before a season-ending shoulder injury. Rookie defensive backs Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart had no interceptions.Todd Bowles is instituting a new 3-4 scheme and relies on press man to man coverage. He likes versatility. Edwards has played all three positions in the secondary for Kentucky."That’s what I did at Kentucky. I did a lot of things,'' Edwards said. "I played safety, nickel corner. I did a lot of things on the back end so I feel like I can help out the Bucs as soon as possible in any way possible. I feel like where ever they need me I can do. I can play blitz, cover, play deep middle. Anything. So I feel like I can fit into their scheme really well.''Edwards was a two-time captain at Kentucky. He has good speed and can create turnovers.“It’s important because I feel like I’m a ball guy,'' Edwards said. "I love the ball. I love to get to the ball and taking away the ball. That’s what I harp on. Getting turnovers. If it’s fumbles or interceptions, whatever it may be. I’m a play-maker so I can help the team out next year as far as taking the ball away. Getting fumbles. Getting interceptions. Whatever it may be but I feel like I’m a play-maker on the back end.''Edwards could compete for the second starting safety spot with Justin Evans or he could play nickel.
