Last night the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took a step in the right direction when they sent a 4th rounder to swap picks with the San Francisco 49ers to take Tristan Wirfs at the 13th pick. Wirfs is guaranteed to start and fill the “void” left when the Bucs parted ways with Demar Dotson and hopefully put to rest the rumors of shopping OJ Howard.
While the Bucs seemed to answer the offensive line question, they can now focus on filling the depth chart. While many are hoping the team addresses the need for a playmaking safety in rounds 2 or 3. The Bucs could look possibly move up in the 2nd if players such as Xavior McKinney, Antoine Winfield Jr, and Grant Delpit are still on the board.
The Bucs could also continue to focus on upgrading offense as their are plenty of running backs to choose from. If Tampa Bay does decide to go that route, look for them to go after D’Andre Swift, J.K. Dobbins, or Jonathan Taylor if they are available.
Also, as I mentioned in the Draft Preview, the Bucs could also look to bring in a quarterback to learn under Tom Brady, as Jake Fromm, Jacob Eason, and Jalen Hurts are still available as potential 2nd round options.
Tune in tonight at 7pm to ESPN or ABC for televised NFL Draft coverage or Bucs Life for local coverage. #GoBucs
