Options for the Buccaneers on defense
Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia
Talk about best fits for the Buccaneers in the class. If there was a player for Bucs fans to watch at a position of need, Davis is the guy.
Even against the Clemson offensive line Davis lived in the backfield. There wasn’t a thing the interior offensive line for the Tigers could do to keep Davis from wreaking havoc, and this skill against such a good opponent should carry well to the NFL.
The Bucs may not want to move on from their defensive linemen just yet, but finding a player like Davis to lean on down the road would be very smart. And how can you pass up putting Vita Vea and Davis together on the inside to combine for nearly 700 pounds?
Ali Gaye, Edge, LSU
The Buccaneers just spent an early-round pick on an edge rusher with Joe Tryon-Shoyinka. Everyone would say this pick worked out perfectly so far, and continuing to focus on the defense in the next class would still work out.
With Jason Pierre-Paul getting up there in age, having another player like Gaye in the depth chart to keep offensive lines on their toes is a good use of draft capital without many other glaring needs.
