Bucs sixth-round pick Keith Tandy saw more practice time at safety as Tampa's offseason workouts progressed.
The Buccaneers are viewing Tandy as a versatile defensive back who will likely also play extensively on special teams. "He's played nickel, dime, safety and corner," explained coach Greg Schiano. "He's played all four, and done it with some efficiency. Certainly not perfect, but some efficiency." Wed, Jun 27, 2012 04:24:00 PM

Buccaneers signed sixth-round DB Keith Tandy to a four-year contract.

Tandy isn't particularly big or fast, but he can make plays on the football (13 interceptions in three college seasons) and is willing to mix it up physically. After giving Greg Schiano fits in the Big East, the Bucs had to have him. Tandy is expected to move from corner to safety in the not-distant future.

The Buccaneers believe that sixth-round CB Keith Tandy's best position in the future might be safety.

Tandy will open rookie minicamps as a cornerback, but he could eventually push FS Cody Grimm and/or earn the Bucs' third safety role as soon as training camp. Tampa Bay is starved for depth at both defensive back positions, so Tandy's versatility will come in handy. At 5'10/200, Tandy ran 4.51 at his Pro Day.

Buccaneers selected West Virginia CB Keith Tandy with the No. 174 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A former quarterback recruit coming out of high school, Tandy converted to cornerback as a sophomore and started the next 40 games. His best trait is his physicality, consistently staying with receiver on downfield routes or driving the line to play the run. Tandy has some experience at safety in some alignments and his competitiveness should translate into special teams production.
