With the 60th overall pick, the Buccaneers select Kingsley Enagbare – EDGE (South Carolina)

It’s no secret that the Buccaneers love them athletic specimens. This is evident by both past real drafts, and hypothetical future mock drafts. It’s also true they love building from the inside out, focusing on the interior, as they should. After all, games are won and lost in the trenches.

With this being the case, pass rushers are always needed, especially with the NFL developing more and more into a pass-happy league with each passing year. You should have at least three, and with Jason Pierre-Paul likely not returning, the Bucs currently have last year’s first-round pick Joe Tryon-Shoyinka and Shaq Barrett penciled in as the two starters, which is perfectly fine.

Guard may be the biggest need, but defensive tackle is right up there, with the future of Ndamukong Suh still up in the air. Add all this up and Kingsley Enagbare is the perfect pick for the Bucs in the second round.

Enagbare is a natural pass rusher, and a good one, that possesses the strength that should pay off in dividends. Should he put on more weight, as scouts are expecting him to, he’ll be more of a swiss army knife-type. Enagbare can serve as a rotational pass-rusher while doubling as more of a natural defensive tackle. These are two roles the Bucs need, and Enagbare could fill them both with great aplomb. Two for the price of one, done and done.
