With the 30th pick of the NFLUK 2019 Mock Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select:

Byron Murphy, Cornerback

Tampa needs all the help they can get in their secondary, and seeing Murphy in trade range I wanted to go for it.
From a measurable stand point he's nothing special, but his instincts and how well he reads and anticipates routes is how he wins. He's exceptional in this regard. He's sticky in coverage when playing man, and his natural reads make him terrifc in zone. The physicality he brings doesn't match his size, he's a thumper of a tackler. If anything for longevity, may want to tone his physicality back a tad.
He makes up for his average physicals, excels pass them, and I would feel comfortable with his versatility to work in any scheme he is put in.
