The Bucs are coming off a 7-9 record and are looking to upgrade and improve at several positions here are 3 players that could fill some spots through the 2020 draft.
OT: The Bucs have a spot at RT to fill with Demar Dotson’s future up in the air. They may even look for an LT to protect whoever the QB might be’s blindside. Georgia’s Anthony Thomas should be long gone by the time the Bucs pick, but a player like USC’s Austin Jackson is a player on the rise. At 6’6″ and 305lbs, Jackson is incredibly athletic and extremely agile. He is just a junior and is a bit raw, but he has the skills to be a prototypical LT in this league and the athleticism to keep up with the top tier pass rushers in the NFL.
Safety: After the first round, a name the Bucs should consider is S Kyle Dugger. Dugger is a junior out of division 2 Lenoir-Rhyne. He is a huge safety at 6’2″ 220lbs, and coaches say he’s got the speed to match. He may be from a division 2 school, but he has NFL talent. He can change direction quickly and does a tremendous job of coming downhill to make a play. The Bucs better take a long look at this kid, he’s definitely a sleeper.
Runningback: I know a lot of you are screaming, running back, so here’s a good one for you. If Jonathan Taylor was to fall to the second round, which he very well do so, maybe the Bucs should do everything in their power to make this happen. At 5’11” and 219lbs, he has the prototypical RB frame. He supposedly ran a 4.42 coming out of HS even though he does get tight in the hips as he approaches the line of scrimmage. Last season he ran for 2003 yards with a 6.3 yards per carry and 21 TDs to go with 26 catches for 252 yards and 5 TDs. This kid is the perfect complement for a player like Ronald Jones, who can’t do it all himself. I’d love to see Taylor in a Bucs uniform next season.
