NFL Draft Rumors: Buccaneers target T.J. Clemmings, Jake Fisher in second round

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will target an offensive tackle with their second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. That's what Peter Schrager and Rick Stroud both report, with Stroud adding that they'll specifically target T.J. Clemmings and Jake Fisher of Pittsburgh and Oregon, respectively. Stroud says the Bucs are "thrilled" both of them are on the board, which means they'll get to pick one of them with the second pick of the second round.

The Buccaneers have had two massive holes on the offensive all offseason -- and all of last offseason too, really. And whereas they tried-but-failed to address those last year, this season they haven't added a single lineman despite needing both a new starting tackle, and a new starting guard. Both Fisher and Clemmings could step right in at right tackle, with Fisher potentially playing left tackle and Clemmings potentially transitioning there with some development.

We'll see which one of these two players the Bucs prefer, but either one would provide an instant upgrade and will help keep Jameis Winston upright.
