2016 NFL Draft Rumors: Buccaneers could trade back for Noah Spence

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be looking to trade back to take Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence. Tony Pauline, working for Walter Football these days after doing work for Sports Illustrated and several other outlets, says that's one of their possible plans.

There's a chance a team trades back into the first round to grab Noah Spence tonight if he's still available as the first round closes out. I'm told the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rank the pass rusher highly and would covet him if he falls into the second round.

We here at Bucs Nation have been on the Noah Spence bandwagon for months, so this move would suit us just fine. Picking up some extra picks and grabbing the best pass rusher in the draft would be a terrific move -- though waiting until the second round would be a bit much. It doesn't seem likely Spence'll be there at that point.

Of course, finding a trade partner may be easier said than done. The most likely team to trade with the Bucs would be the Tennessee Titans at number fifteen, but they've mostly been linked to moves up just a bit earlier in the top ten.

Stay with us as we cover the draft tonight. It should be fun!
