The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold a valuable asset with the fifth pick in the NFL Draft and could possibly trade out. Who should they target if a trade happens?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers find themselves in a wonderful position heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, a draft where there are a number of quarterback needy teams and not enough quality prospects to go around. This makes the number five overall pick a very valuable asset to teams looking to trade into the top five in order to nail down their quarterback of the future.
If the Buccaneers decide to trade back, not needing a quarterback in this year’s draft, they could get a haul of other draft assets that could include two future first rounders and more. With this being a very realistic possibility, it is important to identify potential targets slotted anywhere from 10-20 in the upcoming draft in case the team does, in fact, make a draft day deal.
Teams that could be looking to move up include the Cincinnati Bengals, Washington, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos, and Miami Dolphins. With that being said, the Bucs could pick anywhere from 10-27 in the case that they do trade back. With team needs along the offensive line, their secondary, and a few pieces along their front-seven, there are plenty of quality prospects to consider later in the first round of the draft.
