Buccaneers Draft Needs
DE, OLB, ILB, OG
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select: DE Adrian Clayborn
The Buccaneers continue to add to the defensive line in the early rounds as they took two defensive tackles in the first two rounds last year. Adrian Clayborn should help the defense get to the quarterback right away.
Draft Grade: B+
51. Defensive End Da’Quan Bowers
Great pick for the Buccaneers as Da’Quan Bowers would have been one of the top three picks in the draft if it were for knee injury concerns. This is a great pick for the Bucs as they drafted two defensive tackles in their first two picks last year and two defensive ends in their first two picks this year. Look out for the Bucs front line for years to come.
84. Outside Linebacker Mason Foster
The beat keeps rolling on for the Buccaneers as they continue to rebuild the defense. Good work.
104. Tight End Luke Stocker
151. Strong Safety Ahmad Black
187. Running Back Allen Bradford
222. Defensive Back Anthony Gaitor
238. Tight End Daniel Hardy
