The Buccaneers will have all the starters from their Super Bowl roster returning and hitting the field for them in 2021. So it’s no surprise their first depth of the new season heading into their first preseason game this Saturday against the Bengals contains no surprises.
The depth chart is shown below.
First-round rookie Joe Tryon will undoubtedly get a shot on the field as the defense likes to rotate guys in. Same goes for fifth-rounder K.J. Britt. Rookie offensive lineman Robert Hainsey will also get some important playing time at center as he has been working at the position throughout camp.
Rookie wide receiver Jaelon Darden has caught the eye of many throughout camp as he has even gotten some work in with the starters. His speed will be utilized and on display as a return specialist, but is listed behind wide receiver Jaydon Mickens. He, along with Travis Jonsen, will be competing for positioning along the receiving depth chart with Tyler Johnson and many others.
