The Bucs addressed the cornerback position heavily last offseason, trading for Darrelle Revis and signing him to a lucrative contract, as well as spending their second-round pick on Johnthan Banks. Revis made the Pro Bowl yet again in 2013, and while Banks had his share of rookie moments, he appears capable of locking down the other corner spot for the next few years.
But, as everyone knows, it takes more than two to tango at cornerback in the NFL anymore. Especially in the NFC South, where the Bucs face three offenses that excel in the passing game, it's vital that they add a nickel corner who can be an upgrade over Leonard Johnson.
After starting 27 games at safety for the Seminoles, Joyner moved to corner in 2013, where he played plenty of snaps from the slot. Though he's a bit undersized at 5'8", 190 pounds, Joyner is a physical defender who packs a punch both in coverage and in run support. Joyner is also a skilled blitzer off the edge, tallying 5.5 sacks last season. It's hard not to watch Joyner on tape and see the similarities to another No. 20 who used to roam the defensive backfield in Tampa.
