The Buccaneers find a starter and some depth
Every player in a class can’t be a starter, but the Buccaneers should look for at least three to four guys that can compete for a starting role in year one. Missing short doesn’t hurt as much when you shoot for the stars.
Tyrese Robinson, IOL, Oklahoma
If the Buccaneers move on from the expensive Alex Cappa, spending a draft pick on a guy like Robinson would be an excellent way to create some competition for Aaron Stinnie. This would at least give the Bucs some hope that they don’t have to start from scratch at a key point of protection for the new QB.
Thomas Booker, IDL, Stanford
Ndamukong Suh is still playing some of the best football of his career, so the Bucs don’t need to force him out yet with a top selection, but a depth pick on a guy like Booker that fits the system well is a perfect place to start.
Darrell Baker Jr., CB, Georgia Southern
The Buccaneers need depth at corner. It may have been nice to target the position earlier, but finding offensive starters outweighed a depth CB, so looking in the later rounds is where we will have to settle.
