The Buccaneers need to keep the ball rolling on Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

After a great first selection in Washington edge rusher Joe Tryon in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to the second and third rounds as ways to keep their team in position to compete over the coming years.

After the first pick went to address one of the few positions of need, the Bucs can essentially go any direction without making a mistake with both of these picks.

Sure, there are some players that would be better than others, but there really aren’t any wasted picks for the present. The only area that would become a concern for is down the road.

As it stands, here are the positions of need for the Buccaneers:

Interior offensive line 

Defensive line 

Wide receiver/Running back


Outside of these four spots, it will be extremely difficult for any players to make the roster that are not in these groups. Training camp will also be a heavy competition, but the Buccaneers would be best off if they target these positions to keep the roster in range of the Super Bowl again.

Given the names that are still on the board, there are plenty of players that the Bucs can target to serve in these roles.
