  • The Buccaneers, led by General Manager Jason Licht and Head Coach Bruce Arians, have eight selections in this year’s NFL Draft and hold the No. 32 overall pick. If Tampa Bay picks at No. 32, it will mark the second time drafting a player in that slot in team history (1982 - Booker Reese, Round 2, Pick 32). Tampa Bay also held the No. 32 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, but had previously traded the pick to acquire former head coach Jon Gruden.
  • 15 Buccaneers who started at least five games in 2020 and 23 players who were on the active roster or I.R. for Super Bowl LV were drafted by Jason Licht.
