Best position for Buccaneers to target in round one of the 2022 NFL Draft

The Buccaneers could always use more help at wide receiver.

No one should expect the Buccaneers to solve their many offseason problems in the 2022 NFL Draft. This class could help solve some problems, but free agency should have a much larger say in how this team will look next season.

Given all of the depth that is leaving in free agency and to retirement on the offense, expect Tampa to still give some serious consideration to this side of the ball as they try to stem some of the bleeding with cheap rookie deals.

Whoever starts at quarterback next season will need some extra beef at several positions, and one of these positions that the Bucs should target in the first round is wide receiver.

Yes, the Buccaneers have a great duo in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin (assuming he does return), but that still ins’t enough to rely on for a quarterback like Blaine Gabbert or Kyle Trask.

Tampa needs a consistent WR3 for the first time since the Antonio Brown debacle, and it looks like the best bet for addressing that need is in the draft.

There is a mountain of receiver talent that should be available at the end of the first round, and a pick on one of these guys would likely go further than a first-round pick on an interior lineman or a running back.

The Bucs have already proven that they can find consistent IOL talent in the middle rounds.

Wide receiver still has plenty of depth in most classes, but investing a first in a receiver may pay off better than what happened with Jaelon Darden last season.

Tampa just doesn’t have the depth that it looked like they did. There are several players that looked like they could step up for the WR3 role with several games to prove themselves, yet here we are.

The Bucs need receiver help badly. Starting with the draft would go a long way to fixing this problem.
