The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got a good haul of eight players during the 2019 NFL Draft, but given how the board fell, better value may have been out there.

Hindsight is always 20/20 and it may be a bit premature, but here is a re-draft of the 2019 NFL Draft for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While the Buccaneers may have come away with a decent haul, one graded as an over C+, there was some value left on the board during last weeks marathon.

During this post, this writer’s big board will be used as a point of reference of value on the board.

This big board can be found here.

The caveat to this re-draft is the Buccaneers selected the same positions as they did during the actual 2019 NFL Draft, but with an opinionated better value. Obviously it is way too early to tell whether or not the original picks will pan out, but there was value based off of pre-draft assessment to be had in Tampa Bay.

This re-draft has little to do with the quality of the player actually selected as much as it has to do with the value of the player selected. The Buccaneers left the draft with little improvement along the defensive front, the area of most need for them. As a result they now find themselves searching for answers on issues of depth if they choose to part ways from long-time defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

Here is a way too early re-draft for the Buccaneers for their 2019 haul.
