Draft 2017

Pick No.107

Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 43 (107)

Pick Analysis: The Louisiana native was the second Beckwith to earn all-conference honors as a linebacker with the Tigers, with cousin Darry winning second team honors twice during his career (2005-2008). His brother, Wendell, also plays in-state as a defensive end for Tulane. The top-100 national recruit was rewarded with playing time as a true freshman despite the team's depth at the position (11 tackles, including a strip-sack against Florida). Beckwith started seven games as a sophomore, taking over the middle linebacker spot (77 stops, 7.5 for loss, two sacks). He kept that job throughout 2015, ranking second on the team with 84 tackles (10 for loss, 3.5 sacks). Scouts really took notice with his play as a senior, though, as he picked up first-team All-SEC notice. He was leading the team with 91 tackles, six for loss, before tearing his left ACL against Florida.
