Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2014 NFL Draft Fact or Fiction
Michael Conroy

One month left before this year's NFL draft and every NFL team is doing their darndest to keep their intentions hidden from each other, the media and the common NFL fan.

However, some plans simply cannot be hidden, especially when a team goes through as many changes as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have this offseason.

Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith reshaped the team roster just weeks after taking the reins. As free agency winds down, the Bucs remaining needs become evident.

The Mike Williams trade left a big hole at wide receiver, a position already in need of additional depth.

Though the Bucs acquired quarterback Josh McCown and anointed him this season's starter, Smith left the door open for the Bucs to shop for quarterbacks during the draft.

As a defensive-minded coach, Smith will likely add rookies that fit his defensive philosophy. The Bucs may seek additional pass-rushers and linebackers who fit Smith's zone schemes.

Predicting what an NFL team will do on draft day is like shooting in the dark with a shotgun. Here are five facts and fictions that may help guide the aim of Bucs fans trying to make sense of this year's NFL draft.
