The Buccaneers don’t need changes on the offensive line
Robert Hainsey, OL
Robert Hainsey was applauded as a third-round draft selection by the Buccaneers. Tampa needed some depth to build under an extremely talented starting five, and Hainsey has the skillset to replace Swiss army knife Joe Haeg in year one.
After a successful career at tackle with Notre Dame, Hainsey can play anywhere on the offensive line, especially in the interior.
The only issue with this is that the Bucs need to do everything in their power to keep their current IOL intact. Hainsey could be one of the best OL talents in years, but changing up anything now could be a recipe for disaster on an offensive line that dominated in 2020.
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” rings true on a team that experienced a massive transformation on the offensive line front seemingly overnight. Ryan Jensen, Ali Marpet, and Tristan Wirfs played at All-Pro levels last season, and even Donovan Smith and Alex Cappa were able to make huge improvements as well.
The Bucs could have to shell out a lot of money to keep some of these names on the roster, but no good can come from changing this unit while Tom Brady is the starting quarterback, meaning Hainsey could sit on the bench until who knows when.
