The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already had their first encounters with the rookies they've picked, and they are working on getting them under contract. The most recent signing is of sixth round pick and former West Virginia cornerback Keith Tandy.

For a little perspective on what kind of prospect Tandy could be for the Buccaneers, we turn to our West Virginia blog the Smoking Musket.
Things didn't go well early, and Keith had to earn his way back by proving himself on the field. Obviously, he took full advantage of his opportunity. While at West Virginia he had 13 interceptions and 24 pass breakups. Most of them coming in his last two years. He has a nose for the football and he gets in positions to make plays. He's not afraid to take on ball carriers as evidenced by his 188 tackles.
