The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished 2018 with a 5-11 record. Can we expect another season of mediocrity from them or will they draft well enough to make a statement in the NFC South?\nLet\u2019s see how they drafted\nPlayers Drafted\n\n\n\nPlayers\nPick\nPosition\nSchool\n\n\nDevin White\n5\nLB\nLSU\n\n\nSean Bunting\n39\nDB\nCentral Michigan\n\n\nJamel Dean\n94\nCB\nAuburn\n\n\nMike Edwards\n99\nS\nKentucky\n\n\nAnthony Nelson\n107\nLB\nIowa\n\n\nMatt Gay\n145\nK\nUtah\n\n\nScott Miller\n208\nWR\nBowling Green\n\n\nTerry Beckner Jr.\n215\nDT\nMissouri\n\n\n\nNotable UDFA\n\n\n\nPlayer\nPosition\nSchool\n\n\nDaMarkus Lodge\nWR\nOle Miss\n\n\nZack\u00a0 Bailey\nOL\nSouth Carolina\n\n\nNick Fitzgerald\nQB\nMississippi State\n\n\nJalen Allison\nWR\nNorth Dakota State\n\n\n\nTEAM 2019 Outlook\nOffense\nThe Bucs scored on average 24.8 points per game last season, threw for 320 yards per game but only rushed for 92. You would be forgiven for thinking a team with these stats needed to add talent. You only won five games in 2018.\n\nWe had to wait until pick 208 before the Bucs added some depth to the offensive side of the ball. Bowling Green WR Scotty Miller will get his chance to impress during OTAs and minicamp before the season starts.\nDefense\nMost of the Buccaneers' picks in the Draft came on the defensive side of the ball. The 5th overall pick, LSU's LB Devin White was a given. He was the best player on the board and filled a need for the Buccs. White is a leader of men and will command the backfield for years to come. Expect him to be defensive captain eventually. He has continued to improve year-on-year in College and will leave as a Junior with a very high NFL ceiling.\u00a0 In 2018 he had 123 total tackles with three sacks and three forced fumbles. He is an explosive LB who stalks the box and knows how to bring a man to the ground. He drops his hips well and is always ready for what comes towards him. He has short-area quickness, is an imposing figure and is a violent tackler. Not much gets passed him.\n\nWith pick 39, the Buccaneers selected Central Michigan CB Sean Bunting. He needs some work and will benefit from sitting behind guys like Vernon Hargreaves and Carlton Davis. \u00a0Bunting has quick reaction speed and late flash ability to get his hands between the ball and the opponent. Long speed and acceleration are his best assets. He is strong and has tough hands. His hips flow nicely when making transitions.\n\nIt\u2019s a similar situation with Kentucky Safety Mike Edwards. He won\u2019t break any records in 2019 but is a constant threat to current Safety Justin Evans. Edwards made 317 tackles, 31 for loss in his four seasons at Kentucky. Not much gets passed this kid. Expect him to be the starter soon enough.\n\nIowa DE Anthony Nelson (107) may get a chance to impress sooner than we expected with the neck injury to current DE Jason Pierre-Paul. A car accident earlier this month caused a severe neck injury to JPP. Nelson produced 23 sacks across three seasons in Iowa and is hungry for more. Don\u2019t expect him to sit comfortably on the bench. He wants to play and the Buccs need to unleash this demon.\nGrade: B-\nAll-in-all, the Buccaneers drafted OK, but not good enough for a team at 5-11 in 2018. We need to see a lot from QB Jameis Winston this season or the Bucs may be looking for a new QB in 2020.
