Round 4, Pick 125: Mohamed Kamara, EDGE/Colorado State

It's hard to understate how far good defensive line depth can go in the NFL. We've seen countless teams reach the Super Bowl with deep trenches, including the Buccaneers just a few years ago.

Finding some pass rush help is something the Bucs still haven't addressed in free agency, and it could swing things back to defense when it comes to how the team spends its mid-to-late-round picks. Tampa Bay added some offensive line depth in free agency, which might also factor into deciding to go defense here, but so too could Mohamed Kamara being on the board.

Kamara is a bull rush machine, exploding out of a low, loaded stance that helps make up for some questions about his size. He seems to be undersized a bit, but that could mean he serves as a swing rusher for Todd Bowles. The Bucs need to find ways to address edge rush depth but also need to account for the loss of Devin White.

This could create a situation where Kamara is a Joe Tryon-Shoyinka type, serving as depth behind Calijah Kancey while also swinging out to spend some time at linebacker as well. Not only would he provide depth in the trenches but could be useful all over, which is never a bad thing when thinking about ways to fill gaps all over the defense.
