Round 1, Pick 7 (7th Overall) – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
The Buccaneers had to add a wide receiver after trading away Mike Williams, and they found a gem in Evans. He’s going to look amazing next to Vincent Jackson, and those two are going to terrorize opposing defenses for years to come.
Round 2, Pick 6 (38th Overall) – Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
With the need to add a tight end of high importance, Tampa Bay went out and found a huge target for quarterback Josh McCown to throw toward. Seferian-Jenkins has all the makeup to become a pass-catching tight end that can rival many of the other great receivers that just happen to line up next to an offensive tackle.
Seferian-Jenkins should be a fun red-zone target and a very effective way for Tampa Bay to move the chains with regularity.
Round 5, Pick 3 (143rd Overall) – Kadeem Edwards, OG, Tennessee St.
Coming from Tennessee State, Edwards is going to have to address the level-of-play questions. But he should soon overcome them.
He’s a moose of a player who plays with a great base. He’ll rotate in as a swing guard, with the opportunity (once he improves some mechanics) to earn some time with the regulars next season.
Round 5, Pick 9 (149th Overall) – Kevin Pamphile, OT, Purdue
Pamphile is almost exactly like sushi; very raw, but oh so good if done right. There is so much upside potential in this offensive tackle from Purdue, and if he learns and grows with the Bucs, he could develop into a starting-caliber tackle.
Reaching for raw players with upside is exactly what the fifth round is all about, and Pamphile is the epitome that.
Round 6, Pick 9 (185th Overall) – Robert Herron, WR, Wyoming
Maybe it’s because he’s only 5’9,” but Herron falling into the sixth round is amazing. He’s track-star fast and can take the top off a defense at will. He’s going to have to adjust to bigger, more physical defensive backs, but with defenses looking to stop Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, Herron could flourish.
