RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Talib is coming off a season in which he had 34 tackles (31 solo), two interceptions (both returned for touchdowns), and 11 passes defensed in 13 games played. It was a bit of down year for the CB, as he flashed more playmaking ability in previous years. That being said he will still start at CB in 2012 for the Bucs and he may able to return to a higher-tackle, higher-interception player.
Talib has the talent to be a Pro-Bowl corner, but his constant off the field problems could cost him his career someday. For now, Talib should be back in 2011 starting at cornerback opposite Rhonde Barber. He may miss some games due to suspension in 2011, due to being charged with assault with a deadly weapon over the summer. As long as Talib is on the field he will surely get his share of interceptions, fumble recoveries, and tackles as he is a physical ball-hawk that is worthy of a pickup in IDP leagues that require a corner.
Talib had a solid first season as a starting corner in 2009 as he had 64 tackles and tied for the team lead with five interceptions in 15 games played. As long as he can keep out of trouble he has the talent to be one of the better corners in the league.
Talib will take over for the departed Phillip Buchanon as the starting cornerback opposite Rhonde Barber. Talib clearly has the talent to be a starting cornerback in the NFL but he needs to stay out of trouble off the field, which has been a problem for him.
First-round draft pick in 2008; will compete for starting left cornerback role, could also return kicks.
