2012 NFL Draft Results: Keith Tandy Drafted In Round 6 By Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers apparently enjoyed scouting in Morgantown this year, as Greg Schiano's new club selected it's second straight West Virginia Mountaineer in the 6th Round on Saturday afternoon. Just one round after choosing Najee Goode, the Bucs drafted Keith Tandy with the fourth pick of Round 6, and No. 174 overall.

Tandy will likely be a rotational player in the Tampa secondary, which will use his combination of size and speed to backup their veteran defensive backfield. He's the 20th cornerback taken in the 2012 Draft, and it's certainly an incredible achievement for the Senior from Kentucky, who started 27 games for the Mountaineers. It's nice to see two key cogs of WVU defense which delivered a BCS win, land two players on the same team in Tampa.
