The Bucs’ starting offensive line from last year will stay the same, minus Logan Mankins, who will be replaced with the newly signed J.R. Sweezy. Evan Smith had time last year in the starting lineup due to Ali Marpet’s injury, and he will be a solid backup at both the guard and center position. Kevin Pamphile, the swiss army knife, will have a spot on the roster due to his versatility across the entire offensive line.
The three rookies in Caleb Benenoch, Leonard Wester, and Dominique Robertson could stick on the roster for depth and grooming for next year. Gosder Cherilus did what he was signed to do last year, but with Dotson being announced the starter, it is expected that his time in Tampa has come to an end. Dotson is entering a contract year with the Bucs, which could mean that the either highly priced undrafted rookie Wester or Benenoch could be his replacement.
