Initial Post-Draft Depth Chart for the Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went on the offensive during the 2014 NFL draft.

As just the third team in NFL history to use all of their four-plus draft picks on offense, per the Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman, head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht went all in on offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford's offense.

The Bucs selected former Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans with the seventh overall pick, giving the Bucs passing game a second big man catching balls down the field.

In fact, the Bucs spent several of their picks on mismatch opportunities, including former Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and former West Virginia running back Charles Sims.

The offense blitz illustrated Smith and Licht's dissatisfaction with the talent on the offensive side of the ball. The Bucs still have more work to do, particularly regarding depth on the offensive line and at wide receiver.

Though they passed over defensive players in the draft, Smith and Licht are not necessarily content with the defense's depth chart either. While major moves are unlikely at this point, there will be some epic battles for roster spots, particularly at linebacker and cornerback.

The season is still several months away, but with the draft out of the way, there is now a much clearer sense of what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look like during the 2014 season.

Here is the initial post-draft depth chart for the 2014 Buccaneers.
