It doesn’t matter if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, there will still be other problem areas that need to be addressed. While the Buccaneers could pursue some players in free agency, the draft has been and will always be a great resource when it comes to finding some young, promising talent.
As every Bucs fan is well aware, the offensive line was brutal last season. They allowed the third-most sacks (52) in the league and the running game could rarely get it going. Things need to change.
Even though Demar Dotson, Evan Dietrich-Smith and Logan Mankins will most likely remain on the Buccaneers’ offensive line next season, the opportunity to supplant Patrick Omameh and Oniel Cousins on the right side is there.
In a perfect world, the Bucs trade for another first-round pick and select one of the top-tier offensive linemen, but let’s just allow reality to settle in. Tampa Bay will need to utilize the later rounds to address the matter. So, who should they target? Click through to find out.
