The Buccaneers have two seventh-round picks, and while this round is usually a tossup for most teams, Tampa Bay can always look at adding some depth where it matters.
Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
The Buccaneers don’t need a corner in the draft to take reps away from one of the starters, but the Bucs do need more depth at the position. Tampa Bay struggled with injuries in the secondary at various parts of the season, and a proven man corner brings a heavy price in the early rounds.
Assuming the Buccaneers want to take a chance late, which they should, Robert Rochell is a Todd Bowles corner if one ever existed. While Rochell’s competition wasn’t great in college, his ability in press coverage indicates a perfect fit with a Bowles scheme in Tampa.
Tamorrion Terry, WR, FSU
Another receiver in the seventh round makes sense. Even if Terry only makes the practice squad, the Bucs will be happy to have more talent to fall on in the event of an injury.
A strange 2020 season tanked Terry’s stock, and the Buccaneers should try to get a jump on a highly-coveted UDFA by using a nearly worthless seventh-round pick on a player that could help out Tom Brady.
