Round 6, Pick 220: Isaiah Davis, RB/South Dakota State

Last year Tampa Bay drafted two players with the No. 19 pick. On paper, Calijah Kancey was the selection, but on film the Bucs saw a ton of things they liked about one of his teammates and ended up drafting SirVocea Dennis on Day 3.

It's a pick that has already started to pan out, as the Bucs linebacker depth was tested last year which gave Dennis a chance to start settling in. A similar thing could happen again this year, as Tampa Bay might be looking at film of South Dakota State guard Mason McCormick but see another thing they like in the running back he's blocking for.

Isaiah Davis isn't one of the top backs being talked about, but PFF has some pretty elite grades on him which should pique some interest. Last year Davis finished with a 96.8 rushing grade and lit defenses up for over 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns. He averaged nearly seven yards per attempt, which dwarfs what the Bucs were able to do and is both an endorsement of McCormick's blocking and what Davis brought out of the backfield.

Rachaad White is the clear RB1, while Chase Edmonds seems prime to have a bigger impact than he did last year. Todd Bowles has said he wants to add another running back, and Davis could be exactly what the team needs as an RB3.

Round 7, Pick 246: Jordan Magee, LB/Temple

Losing Devin White this offseason creates the need for the Bucs to find some way to fill out linebacker depth before the season rolls around. It doesn't seem like free agency will be the route Tampa Bay takes, but it doesn't need to overspend on a linebacker either. Edgerrin Cooper is a very intriguing option near the top of the draft, but Jordan Magee could be someone worth taking flier on at the other end of the board.

He had one of the best years of his career last season, finishing with 54 tackles and a PFF coverage grade of 79.8. Where he could fill the gap left by White's departure is his pass rush talent, where he graded out 90.7 and could add some rotational edge rush depth.

Magee is also a Temple guy, which could give him an inside track to getting into Todd Bowles' defense and can't be discounted this late in the draft.
