The Bucs' running back room is getting quite interesting. Obviously, the starter at the position is going to be Rachaad White, who can hopefully carry the load and become the go-to work horse this season. Behind White will be veteran Chase Edmonds, who can become the team's third down back and fill in for White in a pinch, in case of injury.

From there, things get blurry. Undrafted rookie running back Sean Tucker, out of Syracuse, has had some bright moments during training camp and the preseason. Had it not been for an injury, Tucker very well could have been a late Day 2 or early Day 3 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. He's proven he is now healthy and is doing more than just fighting for a roster spot. In my opinion, he's earned it.

From there, it's spotty at best. Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Patrick Laird and Ronnie Brown could take the fourth spot, if the team keeps four running backs. Laird might have an inside shot because of his experience as a third down back and an ability to catch the football, and we'll get to Vaughn a little later.

Brown, though, won't have much of a chance to make this team when it's all said and done. He's way too far behind on the depth chart and hasn't done much to "wow" in his opportunities.
