Bucs Select KJ Britt With The 176th Pick In The NFL Draft


Per Pewter Report.com, the Bucs have decided to select LB KJ Britt with the 176th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Britt hails from the University of Auburn. He was the Tigers’ starting linebacker for two years before declaring for the NFL Draft in 2021.

Britt joins Joe Tryon, Kyle Trask, Robert Hainsey, and Jaelon Darden on the list of prospects the Bucs have decided to draft this year.

Below is Britt’s scouting report, per The Athletic’s Dane Brugler:

“A two-year starter at Auburn, Britt lined up at inside linebacker in former defensive coordinator Kevin Steele’s 4-2-5 base scheme. After a solid junior season, he reached double-digit tackles in each of the first two games as a senior before a thumb injury sidelined him. Known as a defensive alpha at Auburn, Britt is a physical thumper in the run game with the violent mentality that translates to any level of the game. While he has adequate range as a run defender, his body stiffness hurts his cover skills and ability to finish as a tackler in space. Overall, Britt’s athletic limitations will be tough to overcome in the NFL, especially in coverage, but he is a run-down banger with pro-level toughness that could help him stick as a reserve inside linebacker.”
