The Buccaneers were able to reel in Tom Brady in free agency. Who are some 2020 NFL Draft prospects they could look to upgrade the talent around him?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers created quite the wave throughout the NFL landscape last month when they were able to sign the great Tom Brady in free agency. He was one of the more talked about names in free agency and arguably the best quarterback available. The signing will obviously impact Tampa Bay’s plans in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.
Luckily for the Bucs, there aren’t many glaring holes on the roster that need to be addressed early in the draft. That said, improving the offensive line in front of Brady is the clear and obvious priority number one for the rest of the offseason. Outside of that, however, the only other needs are possible upgrades in talent and added depth.
The positions that the Bucs could look to upgrade through the draft is slot receiver, running back, and defensive line. They could use added depth at nearly every position, but offensive line, defensive line, and the secondary are the main position groups that would benefit the most from added depth. With Tom Brady entering his age 43 season, it would also be wise for Tampa Bay to think about taking a developmental quarterback in the middle of the draft as well.
Guys like Tom Brady don’t become available in free agency all that often. There is no doubt that Tampa Bay will be very aggressive in upgrading the talent around Brady in an effort to win now. Here are some ideal prospects in the 2020 Draft the Bucs could look to target:
