The 2013 NFL draft has come and gone, and though the Bucs added six players in the process, there is always room to add a player if he can potentially improve the team.

That is where undrafted free agents come in.

As for the Bucs, they don't have many needs in terms of starting positions to fill, but they certainly have some depth concerns that can be addressed in the coming days.

Since the list of undrafted free agents will shrink seemingly by the minute, the Bucs would be wise to give the following players a once-over:

 

OLB Chase Thomas, Stanford

What Thomas (6'3", 244 lbs.) lacks in speed and agility, he makes up for with incredible instinct and tenacity, particularly when rushing the passer. At the very least, he would be a special teams stud; at best, a serviceable rotation player.

 

WR Marcus Davis, Virginia Tech

Davis (6'3", 233 lbs.) is incredibly raw, but he has natural athletic ability oozing out of his body. He had an impressive 39.5" vertical at the combine and ran a respectable 4.56 40-yard dash (per NFL.com), not too bad for a former quarterback who is still learning the position.

 

OT Emmett Cleary, Boston College

Cleary (6'7", 316 lbs.) is a tall, lean tackle who has struggled against stronger pass-rushers, but with a little work on technique and quality time in the weight room, he would be a solid pick-up strictly for depth purposes.

 

DT Anthony McCloud, Florida St.

Still needing a little bit of depth on the line, particularly at tackle, signing McCloud (6'2", 305 lbs.) would give Bucs defensive line coach Randy Melvin a project to work with and mold. McCloud has above-average strength, but lacks any burst at the point of contact.
