Buccaneers' draft needs
Cornerback - The Buccaneers have two quality starters at cornerback in Darrelle Revis and Eric Wright but they lack a good third cornerback, an essential position in today's NFL. The Bucs may trade up into the first round for a cornerback, and have been reported to be very interested in D.J. Hayden.
Tight end - The Bucs lack a quality starting tight end, as neither Luke Stocker nor Tom Crabtree has proven reliable in that role in the past. The Bucs are reportedly interested in Tyler Eifert, although they would have to give up a lot of picks to trade up far enough to select him.
Defensive line - The Bucs are content with their starters at all positions, but they lack depth across the board and could upgrade the nose tackle position. A pass-rush specialist as an edge rusher or a disruptive defensive tackle would be strong possibilities.
Offensive tackle - The Buccaneers could upgrade their right tackle spot, but they really need a quality backup. If either Donald Penn or Demar Dotson goes down with an injury they have no one capable of stepping in for them.
