3. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (LSU)

Ronald Jones II has plenty of potential to become a primetime running back in 2020, but that won’t stop Tampa Bay from addressing the position.

With Peyton Barber likely out, the Bucs will be in need of a running back and though it makes sense to wait until later, there may be a couple of exceptions: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is one of them.

Edwards-Helaire fits the mold for what Tampa Bay wants to do offensively and is the best receiving threat out of the backfield in this draft. He would be a perfect back-up for Jones II and would provide plenty of explosiveness that the Buccaneers are greatly in need of.
