WATCH: Bucs 3rd-round pick Tykee Smith speaks to the media

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added another dynamic playmaker to their secondary Friday, spending the No. 89 overall pick in the third round of the 2024 NFL draft on Georgia defensive back Tykee Smith.

A versatile defender who can line up in the slot or at safety, Smith was a big-play machine for the Bulldogs, creating tons of splash plays in coverage, against the run, and as a pass rusher on the blitz.

Watch the video above to see what Smith had to say to the media after he was selected by the Bucs.
