The Bucs picked from 9th, 8th, 11th and 10th through the draft. They traded their 3rd round pick and a 4th round pick to Kansas City for the additional 2nd round pick. They moved down two spots in the first round with Chicago. The additional 6th round pick came from Washington in the Dashon Goldson trade and saw them lose their 7th round pick in the process.


1 - CB - Vernon Hargreaves - Florida
Tampa Bay moves back a couple of slots, and take a guy they would have selected at No. 9 and get a couple picks in the process. Hargreaves has the best corner feet I've seen in the draft in the past two or three years. The only knock is that he has poor eye discipline.

2 - DE - Noah Spence - Eastern Kentucky
He's not a lengthy defensive end pass rusher, but has Von Miller-type size. He brings it every day in the weight room and brings it every day on the practice field..

2 - K - Roberto Aguayo - Florida State
Comes from Florida State, so the natural comparison is Sebastian Janikowski, who was a first-round pick in 2000. Janikowski is pure power, but Aguayo has more power than you think.

4 - CB - Ryan Smith - North Carolina Central
One of Tampa's biggest needs was cornerback and they've addressed it again with one of the "sleepers" in this draft. Smith is a quicker than fast cover corner with flashy ball skills. With some of their current CBs nearing contract years, Smith has long-term starting potential.

5 - T - Caleb Benenoch - UCLA
Addressing your offensive line is never a bad idea after selecting your franchise QB with the first overall pick. Benenoch has experience at both guard and tackle and should provide immediate depth at both. He projects as a fringe starter down the line.

6 - LB - Devante Bond - Oklahoma
Bond lined up outside in the Sooners 34 but he's got the speed and quickness to be a downhill disruptor behind an even or odd front. He'll need to impress on special teams in camp to ensure a roster spot.

6 - FB - Dan Vitale - Northwestern
Vitale is an H-back candidate because of his receiving ability. He's skilled enough to push Javorskie Lane for a roster spot if the Bucs only want one fullback on their roster.
