The NFL Combine is here! If the Buccaneers really do want to make the most of Kyle Trask in 2022, they need to keep a close eye on these players.

The NFL offseason is flying by. The Combine is here, free agency is around the corner, and it already feels like the football world is getting back into the swing of things after the season ended less than a month ago. While teams like the Buccaneers probably wish they had more time to plan, now is the time for action.

Tampa should have one plan above all else for the rest of this week: finding weapons to keep their offense firing on all cylinders. This begins with making sure that their starting quarterback has all of the necessary options.

For the sake of logical argument, the quarterback competition should come down to Kyle Trask and Blaine Gabbert. Why the team would rather start a career backup over a second-round pick from a year ago is beyond us, so let’s pretend that Trask starts.

Who are the weapons that would bring out the most of the young Florida quarterback? These are four of our favorites, but there are plenty of offensive weapons to keep an eye on.

Wide receiver options for the Buccaneers

It doesn’t matter if Chris Godwin returns or not; the Bucs need another receiver to rely on. The depth failed to impress at any point of last season, and letting it ride with the current group isn’t going to cut it.

The Buccaneers have a ton of areas of need, but taking another receiver early is still not out of the question.

Jameson Williams 

Williams is coming off a major injury, but he still makes a case as one of the best receivers in this class. It seems unlikely that he slips all the way to the Bucs, but he would be a stellar addition to the starting trio with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

Fans shouldn’t expect Antonio Brown in year one, but Williams has all of the tools to be a burner vertically and succeed in any of the areas asked of him.

Jahan Dotson 

The Bucs already have one great receiver from Penn State in Godwin. Why stop there? Dotson is only 21 and should be available when the Bucs are on the clock and would give Tampa another option that can do anything comfortably.

Running back options for the Buccaneers

The running back room may be under more pressure than the receivers. Any quarterback that comes to Tampa will need more run support than Tom Brady received, so it is likely that the Bucs could target as many as two backs in this class.

Isaiah Spiller 

A great running back with hands for a quarterback that doesn’t have a deep ball like Brady? Sign us up. Spiller’s ability to do it all would give Trask a perfect safety net for the inevitable check-downs that will come at a higher rate in 2021 than they did in 2022.

Dameon Pierce 

Any early favorite to be one of the best value picks in the class, Pierce has history with Trask and can be a great do-everything back to pair with guys that are already on the roster or with a guy like Spiller.
