The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beefed up an already dominant defensive front Saturday, selecting Nebraska defensive lineman Khalil Davis in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

A powerful, versatile defender who lined up all over the defensive line for the Cornhuskers, Davis is a rare athlete for his size, something he put on full display with an impressive performance at this year's NFL Scouting Combine.

He joins the NFL's top-ranked rushing defense as a valuable depth piece, replacing veteran Beau Allen, who left in free agency.

Tampa Bay still has a pair of late picks in the seventh round, but this has already looking like a strong class for general manager Jason Licht and his crew.
