21. J.R. Reed, S, Georgia
Reed has the potential to grow into an every down Safety. I believe he will start his NFL career as more of a special-teamer, especially in the return game. With the way injuries have plagued the Safety position in Tampa Bay, I would not at all be surprised to see a Safety taken by them in this draft.
22. Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
Another option at Tackle in case the Buccaneers go a different route in round one. Wilson likely won’t make it past round two. He is pretty much set at the Right Tackle position, as he is not the most versatile lineman. However, at 6’6″, 350 pounds, Wilson is a very strong player who is solid in both pass-pro and run-blocking.
23. Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
Ruggs reminds me a lot of Tyreek Hill. An absolute burner of a runner with a 4.27 40 time. He will not make it out of the first round. If the Buccaneers truly go all out for weapons for Tom Brady, Ruggs might just be the pick at 14.
24. Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU
Thankfully, the Buccaneers re-signed DT Ndamukong Suh for the 2020 season. However, it is unclear if that may be Suh’s last season in Tampa. Blacklock is a potential long-term replacement that could also contribute as a rookie. I expect him to go anywhere from pick 30-50, so if he is sitting on the board at 45, he may be the pick for Tampa Bay.
25. Dante Olson, LB, Montana
Olson could be a diamond in the rough player. He didn’t go to the biggest college, but he was impressive in his four years as a special teamer, and two years as a starting linebacker. Last season, Olson led the nation with 179 tackles, 11 of them were for loss. The Buccaneers tend to use their late-round picks for depth and special teams help, and Olson could provide just that.
26. Tyler Biadasz, G/C, Wisconsin
A truly versatile interior offensive lineman who can move opponents in the run game. Tampa Bay could bring in Biadasz to compete with Alex Cappa for the right guard position, or even mold him into the eventual replacement for center Ryan Jensen. He could even be used as a 6th offensive lineman on short goal-to-go plays. It’s all about versatility along the offensive line.
27. Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois
It is rare to find a safety with the size (6’3″, 221 pounds) and speed of Chinn. His speed allows him to play very well in coverage, and his size translates to big-time hits and good tackling from the safety position. A definite second or third round option for Tampa Bay in this draft.
28. K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio State
If Scotty Miller isn’t the answer at WR3, maybe Hill is. Tampa Bay would have to spend a third or fourth-round pick on Hill, but what he would give them back is significant value out of the slot. He is quick and also useful in both the kickoff and punt return game. He caught 10 touchdown passes last season and is an all-around playmaker.
29. Raekwon Davis, DT, Alabama
This 6’7″ 306-pound beast would be so fun to watch play next to Vita Vea for years to come. He doesn’t get to the quarterback too often, but he stuffs the middle and any interior defensive lineman in this draft class. Davis’ draft stock has been up and down the entire offseason, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Buccaneers take a chance on him.
30. Anthony Gordon, QB, Washington State
Gordon is a gun-slinger that isn’t scared to make mistakes or make risky throws into tight windows… sound familiar? He threw for over 5500 yards last season with 48 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. If he can be mentored under Tom Brady for two seasons and get those turnovers down, Gordon will have a nice future in this league. He should still be there in round three or four.
