2. The Bucs did not address the running back room

There was a time prior to last year's trade deadline where we saw some whispers about the Bucs being a great spot for Derrick Henry, but nothing of merit happened as the deadline passed. Now, Rachaad White had a phenomenal year, all things considered.

The interior offensive line couldn't block to save their lives, with White mostly running into walls on dive or draw plays. But, in space, White was fantastic. He's become a huge threat in the passing game and on sweep-type plays.

The Bucs need someone who can smash between tackles though, and they didn't go out and get anybody. They didn't get Henry. They didn't even land A.J. Dillon. If this team runs into the season with their current depth chart intact, they're going to be in trouble in games where they'll have to run the football.

There are going to be games where the Bucs' passing game is stymied. Being able to run it effectively and physically is a necessity in today's NFL, even though it's a passing league. And, the Bucs haven't addressed that type of runner just yet.
