Should the Bucs plan to make a third run at the brass ring in 2022, it may be a little easier to keep all 22 starters around for yet another season. The official salary-cap number for the 2022 season will be $208.2M after dipping to $182.5M for 2021. We'll have to see how Father Time takes his toll on all the Bucs mercenaries this year: JPP, Ndamukong Suh, Gronk, AB, Leonard Fournette, and Steve McLendon are all pushing further into their 30s, not to mention Tom Brady's advance from the early to the mid-40s.

As far as the Bucs' homegrown young guns, only Carlton Davis' contract is up after the 2021 season. Davis' salary should bump to $6-7M from the current $1.1M based on his play.

So the Bucs' brigantine could conceivably sail for 2 more seasons with the same core group of players before the rudders fall off. Then the following contracts are up: Lavonte David, Devin White, Vita Vea, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Jamel Dean, and the Godfather himself Brady.

Regarding the 2022 draft, the Bucs will weigh important depth needs (OL, DL) with BPAs who may slip through the cracks.

BUCS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
