Add complimentary back

Rachaad White had a nice sophomore season in the NFL, rushing for 990 yards and six touchdowns while tallying 549 yards and three scores as a pass-catcher. The problem for Tampa is that there wasn't much depth behind White.

Chase Edmonds appeared in 13 games and had 257 scrimmage yards and zero touchdowns. The Bucs need to ensure they get someone more productive behind White this offseason so that this run game can really cook (well, they also need to fix the o-line to help in that department, but we already touched on that).

We've seen in the draft that good running backs can be had in the later rounds (Isiah Pacheco was a seventh-rounder) so the Bucs don't even need to use a high pick to land a complimentary option. Improving the run game is a must this offseason and while the o-line should shoulder some of the blame for why that part of the offense was more miss than hit, adding more weapons can't hurt.
