The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded away the No. 13 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft in order to pick up the league’s top cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets. While the Buccaneers currently sit without a first-round selection, there is the possibility that they could be looking to move back in to the first thirty two picks on draft day.
Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik addressed the possibility of trading back in to the first-round and said it is certainly a possibility — especially if a player they like is still on the draft board.
“You get a little antsy, but we’ve already gone through scenarios,” Dominik said, via the Tampa Bay Times.
“Who are the guys you’d consider going to get depending on how far they drop? Here’s what it takes. We’ve gone through a lot of [debates] that way. . . . We walk into this draft with seven picks still. . . I think it allows you the ammunition to be able to move around and be fluid if you want to.”
Tampa Bay’s first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft will be in the second-round with pick No. 43 overall.
If the team is salivating over an available question, packaging the No. 43 pick with an additional selection and jumping in to the late 20’s would certainly be an option. I would look at the Minnesota Vikings at the end of round one as a potential trade partner for the Buccaneers.
