Post Draft Thoughts:

“What makes Tampa’s draft so intriguing is that the players at positions that they drafted are coupled with veterans that they picked up in free agency, or already have on their team.  It was an elegant draft that mixed in potential stars at positions all over the field. O.J. Howard was perhaps the best all around receiver in the draft, even better than the three pure wide receivers that went before them.  They have a very good tight end already, and are going to be in 12 personnel a lot, causing many matchup problems for defenses. Add to that Chris Godwin, and you have three excellent receivers. Stevie Tu’Ikolovatu is an under the radar selection.  In the NFL he is a 2 gap defender that can eat up blockers. It will be interesting to see how the Bucs rotate him in at different down and distances.”

2018 NFL Draft

After a highly praised offseason including some high profile free agents and a draft that was lauded as one of the best, the Buccaneers have been struggling to pull it all together.

The first priority for the Bucs will be to establish a more effective running game. They will surely be looking at finding a true feature back early in the draft, however, the problem might be more accurately pointed at ineffective run blocking on the offensive line.

Tampa Bay plays in a division with some elite quarterbacks, and need all of the edge rush that they can get. They have talent on the defensive line, but for some reason the parts aren’t playing well together. Adding another edge rusher to the mix might be the key to getting the defensive line to operate on all cylinders.
