Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022

– There are a few decent picks and some good prospects, but did the Buccaneers find the guys who can take them back over the top and to another Super Bowl? Not really. They needed help for the interior of both lines, and they didn’t get anything.

– Along with Tom Brady and the great offense, how did they win a few years ago? The pass rush was incredible. The D was able to own Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl and did a great job along the way, and that’s what Logan Hall is for. He’ll be a part of the rotation, but …

– There were a slew of luxury picks, but not enough sure-thing playmakers. There wasn’t much for the secondary, and there weren’t any wide receivers with two tight ends thrown into the mix. It’s a draft for the depth more than for the starting 22 – and that was part of the thought process.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Needs, Pre-Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022

The Buccaneers are in a decent overall draft situation. They’re still going for the right now with Tom Brady back for another year, and not having a ton of late draft picks – just two 7th rounders – after the 4th round is just fine. They have four of the top 133 picks. They can find players who can produce this year.

– They got OG Shaq Mason through free agency, and they came up with a slew of okay options for the front, but they need to get younger and stronger on the offensive line. The defensive front could use some boosting, another wide receiver would be nice, and more help in the secondary would be nice.

So who’ll be there in the first round for Tampa Bay? Just how much do the Buccaneers want to work on the offensive line? Michigan S Daxton Hill would be a nice addition to the secondary, and finding a good wide receiver like Penn State’s Jahan Dotson or possibly Treylon Burks from Arkansas could fly, but Boston College OG Zion Johnson would be a right-fit right-time pick.
