Draft Grade: Superstar and the Question Marks
The easiest pick in this draft was Tampa Bay taking Devin White. Many teams can mess this up, but credit to them with not over or under thinking this one. Devin White can move in all directions, and will be the captain of this defense very quickly.
After the first round, the Bucs had two fairly substantial reaches at corner, and then a safety that is a solid prospect, but again, you could make the point there were a number of other better prospects available.
Suppose Tampa Bay has to get their kicker situation finally solved, but 5th round is just too rich for that. At least it wasn’t the second.
Beckner was a surprise to still be on the board, and could be the surprise pick of this draft class. He looked very good good against top competition.
