The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be watching with anticipation as the 2020 NFL scouting combine takes place over the next week.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have several important decisions to make during the 2020 NFL Draft and that all begins with extra scouting opportunities at the NFL Scouting Combine.
The scouting combine will begin Sunday, February 23 and run through Monday, March 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Prospects will run through drills, meet with teams and show their potential as they try to ‘up their stock’ heading into the draft.
Here’s a look at 15 prospects the Buccaneers will be watching intently over the course of the next week.
15. DT Derrick Brown (Auburn)
The chances that Auburn’s Derrick Brown is still available at pick No. 14 are slim, but the talented defensive tackle prospect will still be worth the look.
If the top portion of the draft is heavy on quarterbacks and offensive linemen, we could see a situation where Brown falls farther than expected and ends up becoming one of the best draftable commodities when the Buccaneers are on the clock.
He’s got great size, potential and strength. It will be interesting to see how he performs in some of those drills with other defensive linemen in this class.
