The also traded up in the third, then gave up a future fourth-round pick to move into the fifth and gain an additional seventh - again, with the Jaguars. Finally, packaging two of those sevenths to move into the back of the sixth.
Here is how the Bucs’ draft class ended up;
Round Two: Logan Hall - DT, Houston; Luke Goedeke - OG, Central Michigan
Round Three: Rachaad Evans - RB, Arizona State
Round Four: Cade Otton - TE, Washington; Jake Camarda - P, Georgia
Round Five: Zyon McCollum - CB, Sam Houston
Round Six: Ko Kieft - TE, Minnesota
Round Seven: Andre Anthony - EDGE, LSU
