The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in preparation for the upcoming NFL draft. A part of these preparations include pre-draft visits. As ESPN’s Jenna Laine reports, the Bucs have hosted three defensive lineman recently. Georgia’s DT Devonte Wyatt, Houston’s DE Logan Hall and now Oklahoma’s DT Perrion Winfrey.
In addition to Georgia’s Devonte Wyatt and Houston’s Logan Hall, the Bucs hosted Oklahoma defensive tackle and Senior Bowl MVP Perrion Winfrey on a top-30 visit, per source. The Bucs have a need here without Ndamukong Suh.

Any of these three would be great picks for the Buccaneers. Depth on the defensive line is crucial, especially considering Ndamukong Suh is still not back under contract.
Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia
HT: 6’3 WT: 315 lbs
Devonte Wyatt is a rare physical specimen for his size. He is explosive off of the ball and can overpower most typical offensive linemen. Wyatt posted great combine numbers in the 40 (4.77), three-cone (7.45), broad jump (9’3). Very effective on stunts and twists making him hard to control. The Buccaneers get an athletic freak with a high-motor with their first pick.
Logan Hall, DE, Houston
WT: 278 lbs
Logan Hall is a physical player with a ton of strength. He uses heavy hands with attitude coming off of the ball. Hall is more of an anchor, a double team eater. He definitely needs to work on his pass rush consistency, but is serviceable. Look for Hall to come off of the board in the late 1st to early 2nd round.
Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma
HT: 6’4 WT: 290 lbs
Oklahoma’s Perrion Winfrey has a game built around quickness off the line of scrimmage and athletic ability. He can be very disruptive as a pass rusher and with more refinement has potential to be great in this area. This comes at the expense of some power upfront, but after watching Matthew Stafford pick the Buccaneers defense apart with little pressure it might be a trade off worth considering.
