NFL Draft 2012: 5 Players Tampa Bay Buccaneers Must Have on Their Radar

As the 2012 NFL draft approaches, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have to be thinking about whom they are going to select with the fifth overall pick in the draft.

There is a lot of talent coming out of this draft class, and the Buccaneers have many holes that need to be filled. Tampa Bay could use some help both offensively and defensively, but more specifically in the secondary, offensive backfield and receiving corps. The Bucs could also use some young, talented linebackers and tight ends to join the team.

There will more than likely be more than a little shake up of the 2011 roster by Greg Schiano and the new Buccaneers coaching staff. They will want to draft some players that fit their schemes and fill the roles they need filled.

The draft will surely help Tampa Bay this year, and who they draft with the fifth pick should be a day one starter in 2012.

However, the Buccaneers will need to have a solid draft with great picks in every round in order to compete this year. There will be some hidden talent late in the draft, and it is up to the Buccaneers front office to make sure they dig up those late-round gems.

However, there are five guys that the Buccaneers absolutely have to consider taking with their picks in the first and second rounds of the draft.
