With new head coach Lovie Smith at the helm, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to get back to the top of the NFC South now that the failed Greg Schiano experiment is over. Coming into the NFL Draft, with Smith being a defensive-oriented coach, many thought the team might select one of the great defensive players early on with their top 10 pick.
Well, that didn’t happen as the 6-5 Mike Evans, wide receiver out of Texas A&M, was too good to pass up inserting into the offense which now includes new quarterback Josh McCown.
The offensive trend continued into the second and third rounds with the selections of a tight end and running back respectively.
Here’s a look at the complete list of the Bucs’ draft picks in 2014.
|Rd 1 – #7(7)||Mike Evans (WR) Texas A&M|
|Rd 2 – #6(38)||Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE) Washington|
|Rd 3 – #5(69)||Charles Sims (RB) W Virginia|
|Rd 5 – #3(143)||Kadeem Edwards (OG) Tenn St|
|Rd 5 – #9(149)||Kevin Pamphile (OT) Purdue|
|Rd 6 – #9(185)||Robert Herron (WR) Wyoming|
