The linebacker position could also be a point of emphasis for this Buccaneers’ defense. While Devin White is currently securing the lead role, LaVonte David could soon be on his way out. This could make way for the team to add to the position. Oregon’s Noah Sewell could be an intriguing option with the 19th overall pick.

During three seasons at Oregon, Sewell stuffed the stat sheet. Over 33 career games, he recorded 218 total tackles, 105 solo tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, nine defended passes, and two interceptions.

This past season, Sewell took the field in 12 games. In his final season, he recorded 56 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, and one interception.

Sewell’s best season came in 2021. In his second season on the field, he appeared headed toward stardom. He recorded 114 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, and four sacks.

Sewell can be a high-volume tackler and can find the ball with ease. He is best used near the line of scrimmage but has also improved in coverage. With his speed, he can make his presence felt anywhere on the field.

Given time, Sewell could develop into an elite linebacker at the next level. Playing alongside a proven game-changer in White could be exactly what he needs to take his game to another level.
