2014 NFL Draft: Buccaneers select T Kevin Pamphile after trade up

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded back up into the fifth round of the 2014 NFL draft to pick Purdue tackle Kevin Pamphile

On day one and two the Bucs used their picks on receiver Mike Evanstight end Austin Seferian Jenkins and running back Charles Sims to become the Tampa Bay Dunkaneers. They then added guard Kadeem Edwards in the fifth round, and then traded back up a few picks later to add Purdue tackle Kevin Pamphile.

The Bucs gave up a 2015 fifth-round pick, possibly definitely the one they received from the Baltimore Ravens for Jeremy Zuttah, and this year's seventh-round pick to trade up with the Buffalo Bills to number 149. 

The Bucs worked out Pamphile before the draft, and the big tackle has the versatility to play both tackle and guard. The Bucs are desperate for help along the interior offensive line and need depth across the line, so these last two picks certainly fit that. 

When the draft ends we'll start seeing reports of undrafted free agents signing and being invited to try out at the Bucs' rookie mini-camp, and we'll have a tracker to cover all of that, too. It looks like the Bucs still have their sixth-round pick, which will be the 185th overall selection in the 2014 NFL draft.
