Tom Brady and the Buccaneers should keep making moves until they have the best offense in the NFL.

“How much help do Tom Brady and the Buccaneers need on offense?”

There is no end. Both parties would always be happy with more talent coming in each season, and the 2022 NFL Draft offers a perfect opportunity for the Bucs to continue building their offensive prowess for another run at a Super Bowl.

Tampa has several positions they are clearly keying in on in the draft, and it looks like running back could be a likely pick, perhaps even early in the draft.

If the Buccaneers do want to go after a quality option that is perfectly suited to succeed in the modern NFL, they may want to consider the running back from Georgia that they met with on April 12th; James Cook.

The Buccaneers and James Cook are a perfect match

The Bucs have already met with a number of running backs already this season, and Cook has the potential to be the best of the bunch in Tampa’s offense.

The Bucs currently have a space at the RB2 role after Ronald Jones departed in free agency. Cook has the talent to be the rusher that Jones was with a substantial improvement as a versatile pass-catcher.

Everyone knew that RoJo was a talented runner, but not being able to succeed as a receiver at the running back position is a major red flag in the modern NFL. Cook address both of these issues with the opportunity to elevate the overall quality of the running back room alongside Giovani Bernard and Ke’Shawn Vaughn as depth options.

In fact, Cook has the talent to eventually take over from Fournette due to his abilities as a receiver, and the Bucs can’t afford to ignore his talents when they have an offense with Tom Brady leading the group.

Cook would thrive in an offensive scheme that wants to dump the ball out to running backs when needed and to control the clock under a defensive-minded head coach in Todd Bowles.

Some people may not be fans of spending draft capital on running backs, but James Cook looks like the perfect fit for the Bucs if he falls to the right round.
