Right Guard: Alex Cappa?
This is the one position that the Buccaneers could look to upgrade via the draft in 2019, but after using a pick in the top three rounds just a year ago to snag Cappa just a year ago, it seems unlikely that Licht would make that sort of heavy investment again.
Cappa gained steam at the Senior Bowl as a small school bruiser out of Humboldt State, and carried that momentum into a successful combine. This was a similar trajectory to the one that Marpet took to the NFL, and in the third round the Bucs were hoping to create similar success.
The second year guard has a chance to prove he was worthy of a third round selection this year as the right guard is his to lose. While Evan Smith is recovering from a hip injury, he looks to be on the downward swing of his career. The Bucs also signed a former Arians draft pick in Earl Watford, who provided depth for the Cleveland Browns in 2018.
While Watford and Smith will compete for the right guard job after Benenoch has been moved out of the role, Tampa Bay did not make a steep investment in Cappa without a reason. The job is his to lose, and do not expect the Bucs to use a heavy investment on the interior of their offensive line for the second straight year.
