Bucs rookie defensive deal with Logan Corridor is a giant man. He’s downright large, actually, standing at 6-foot-6. Not too long ago, he stated he’s as much as 290 kilos. That dimension – combined together with his pace and athleticism – made him the right participant for Tampa Bay. That’s why he was drafted with the No. 33 general decide within the 2022 Draft.
Due to his body, Corridor drew loads of comparisons to longtime Buc Will Gholston main as much as the draft. Now, the 2 are teammates, working alongside one another in Todd Bowles’ protection. They’re each prototypical defensive ends in Bowles’ 3-4 scheme, and the truth that Gholston has been there and accomplished that may solely assist the rookie.
To not point out, the Buccaneer defensive entrance is filled with dimension. Following final week’s mini-camp, Corridor stated he can study so much from guys within the room which might be as massive as he’s.
“I’ve numerous appreciation coming into this scheme and simply this program having guys which might be like me. I don’t actually see guys like me,” Corridor stated. “Having the ability to watch them and study from them, and type of see how they transfer and what they do to win, see what they’re having success with. I can study so much – not even when they’re speaking however every time they’re taking part in, I can watch and study from them as a result of we’re related in dimension.”
Tampa Bay’s defensive position is likely to be the most important within the NFL. The Bucs even have Vita Vea (6-foot-4, 347 kilos) and Akiem Hicks (6-foot-5, 324 kilos) of their beginning rotation. There’s loads of size, energy and athleticism between Corridor, Gholston, Vea and Hicks. There’s little doubt that such a mix can show extraordinarily fruitful for the Bucs in 2022 and past.
As Corridor continues to study from his teammates – in addition to Corridor of Famer and Bucs Ring of Honor member Warren Sapp – he’ll come to grasp how he can use his dimension and pace to beat NFL offensive linemen. Perhaps that lofty purpose of six sacks as a rookie will find yourself inside his attain.
