Here’s JT Olson’s Draft Grade For Irving 

Bucky Irving – B-

This is admittedly not the mold that I expected the Bucs to target. I was looking for a bigger, more physical back to help pick up first downs on short yardage situations and punish defenses in the red zone. A true compliment to what they have in Rachaad White.

However, that isn’t to say that I don’t like Irving as a player. He catches the ball well and does an excellent job of avoiding initial tacklers. It’s honestly a very similar skillset to what White provides this offense.

I feel really good about the depth of the running back room after this pick. White, Irving and Chase Edmonds are all guys who can do similar things, so the offense never really has to change regardless of who is in there. I just wish there was a tougher, more physical element to the room than what they have.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected University of Oregon running back Bucky Irving with the 125th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Look for Irving to push for reps as RB2 during the offseason. His big play ability and quickness gives the Pewter Pirates another threat at the running back position.
