2014 NFL Draft - What's Next for the Bucs?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Buccaneers have made their first selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. What's next?

The Buccaneers may have addressed a need by selecting WR Mike Evans with the 7th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but that selection leaves the Buccaneers still with plenty of needs.

So what can we expect from the Buccaneers in Day Two (or maybe Day One if they trade back into the first round)?

The Bucs still need their quarterback of the future and even though they didn't make that pick with their first one, there's plenty of options in the second or third round including Jimmy Garropolo, Aaron Murray and perhaps even Teddy Bridgewater if he continues to slide. Tampa Bay could try to trade back into the first round for Derek Carr.

The Bucs still need interior line help and there's plenty of options for Tampa Bay in the remaining early rounds. Nevada guard Joe Bitonio, Ole Mills OT Billy Turner and Miss St behemoth Gabe Jackson.

The Bucs could certainly use some pass rushing depth on the defensive line. Dee Ford is an underrated DE from Auburn, DT Stephon Truitt has shown some flashes in a disappointing Junior year and DT Dominique Easley out of Florida - who would have first round value if not for a catastrophic knee injury early in his season with the Gators.

The Bucs could definitely use some depth at linebacker, defensive back and tight end.

Needless to say, there's still plenty of options for Bucs on Day two and three in the 2014 NFL Draft.
