The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a top-five overall pick in the NFL draft nine times in their 37-year history.

While most names, such as Lee Roy Selmon (No. 1), Bo Jackson (No. 1), Vinny Testaverde (No. 1), Paul Gruber (No. 4) and Cadillac Williams (No. 5) ring familiar, very few of those high picks ever fully panned out.

All told, the Bucs have chosen 34 players in the first round in team history, most recently safety Mark Barron (No. 7) and running back Doug Martin (No. 31) in 2012.

Yet, despite their numerous first-round choices, history has shown us that they have had much better luck drafting players from the second round on. Because for every Gaines Adams (No. 4) and Broderick Thomas (No. 6) that they've missed on, there have been equally as many mid-round gems.

To that point, here are the best non-first round picks in Buccaneers team history.
