Third on Parr’s list of needs for Tampa Bay was at the safety position; this time, he got it right as the Buccaneers have made a plethora of moves to address the position, and could continue to look for help in the back of their defense in the draft as well. This offseason, the Bucs have signed Bucannon, who can play box safety for them, as well as former Green Bay Packers’ starting strong safety Kentrell Brice.
In addition to these moves, the team has also brought in Clayton Geathers for a visit, even though he did not sign. These moves would indicate that their safety room is not a finished product. Either through free agency or the draft, another safety will be added to the roster in order to improve a bleeding secondary in Tampa Bay.
If the Buccaneers choose to draft a safety it will not be in the first round, but rather probably on the second day of the draft in the second or third round. Nasir Adderley from Delaware would be the ideal target if he slips to the 39th pick in the draft. Other names to keep an eye on include Juan Thornhill, Chauncey Garder-Johnson, and Johnathan Abrams.
Did Parr get need right?: YES
