Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Biggest Need: RB, S, CB or LB?

Cutting Tanard Jackson sure created more needs
Cutting Tanard Jackson sure created more needs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have certainly added talent this offseason, but they still have a lot of holes they need to fill before they can be a competitive football team again. On defense, and on offense these holes are obvious. The team has only two running backs on the roster in Legarrette Blount and Moss Madu - neither of whom has produced much on passing downs. At cornerback, the Bucs have some quality, but Aqib Talib's legal issues and Ronde Barber's leave the long-term prospects of this position in doubt.

At linebacker, the situation is dire. The Bucs have Quincy Black and Mason Foster penciled in as two starters, but neither player looked good last season. And then we haven't even talked about the currently completely unoccupied weakside linebacker position The Bucs must add linebackers.

The same can be said for the safety position. By cutting Tanard Jackson, the Bucs have no reliable starter at safety left. Cody Grimm looked good in 2010, but he didn't look like the same player in 2011 - before going on IR with a knee injury. Who knows how he'll look this season? And behind him, the Bucs have Larry Asante, Ahmad Black and Devin Holland, who have about 2 games of playing experience between them.

So, which position do you think represents the Bucs' biggest need?
