Like 2020, the Bucs' rope-a-doped their way to the playoffs. A team that in pre-season seemed capable of 17-0 that went through all kinds of turmoil, most troublesome being the depletion of the WR corps with the loss of Chris Godwin and the AB debacle. If it weren't for the presence of Mike Evans, the pass-catching unit would be indistinguishable from the table scraps that Belichick gave Tom Brady in New England.

Is this group strong enough to fend off the likes of the Cowboys, Rams and Packers? And will an early playoff exit result in Tom Brady calling it a career?

There's speculation that the Bucs will move along from Chris Godwin as they simply won't be able to afford him, particularly in light of Vita Vea's massive new deal. If that talk gains traction, we could be looking at WR here in RD1 of the 2022 Draft. Until that time, the secondary is fertile ground for Day1/Day2 draft picks given all the upcoming free agents - Davis, Sherman, Desir and Whitehead in March. Murphy-Bunting, Cockrell and Dean next off-season.

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.
