2021 Draft Picks: All Tampa Bay Buccaneers picks from the NFL Draft

It’s very rare to see the Super Bowl champs managing to bring all of their key starters back for the next season, so this could be a fascinating season for the Bucs.

They will need to play with the target on their back so they should face a tough challenge in every game, but it also allows them to build for the future with this draft.

It’s always a risky game to pick a successor for Tom Brady because nobody every really knows when he’s going to stop, but they managed to take a solid QB prospect while also adding some depth in key areas too:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers picks from the 2021 NFL Draft:

132Joe TryonEDGE
264Kyle TraskQB
395Robert HainseyOT
4129Jaelon DardenWR
5176K.J. BrittLB
7251Chris WilcoxCB
7259Grant StuardLB

The selection of Kyle Trask is the most interesting one here as it’s very possible that he’s going to be tasked with replacing the best of all time.

That would be daunting for a lot of rookies, but he’s also landed in a place where he’s going to learn from the best, there’s a great roster in place and a coach who clearly believes in him too.

The main task from this Draft class was finding rookies who will eventually start to push for a starting role in the team.

They won’t manage to convince their best players to take team-friendly deals to stick around forever and Chris Godwin is playing on the franchise tag, so the selection of Jaelon Darden looks like an interesting one to watch.

They’ve also added some added pass rush in the first round which is always welcome, and they do need to be considered as strong candidates to retain their crown next season.

Tom has a deep passion for soccer and has worked as a coach and a first-team scout alongside covering everything from the Champions League to Croatian non-league stories. He also loves the NFL and sees nothing wrong with staying up til 5am on a regular basis to watch it in the UK
