Tampa Bay traded up to select cornerback Zyon McCollum.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers kept the trades coming on Saturday, moving up to the fifth round to select a cornerback. Tampa Bay selected Zyon McCollum, a cornerback out of Sam Houston State University with the 157th pick overall.

The Bucs traded once again with the Jacksonville Jaguars and got a 2022 seventh round pick, giving up a 2023 fourth round pick.

The 6-2, 199-pound corner started all 12 games in 2021, posting 50 tackles, two for loss, three interceptions, five pass breakups and a blocked kick. McCollum's twin brother, Tristin played safety and is also in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Texas native has a great size and speed combination and ran a 4.33 40-yard run at the NFL Scouting Combine. McCollum will join the Bucs young cornerback core led by Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting.
