It's hard to imagine Tampa Bay thought they'd get one of the "Big 4" QBs in this class, and an absolute shocker to do it while staying put. Still, the lure of Levis wasn't enough to get the Bucs to pull the trigger. This defense definitely needs to get younger, and Kancey brings an explosive (albeit small) player to the unit.



This defensive front has been built on two-gap power, and Todd Bowles may be finally shifting it to a scheme that covets more athleticism up front. Either way, this team's pass rush is getting better and this is a passing league. Grade: B+

Tampa Bay has trimmed quite a bit of fat on the offensive line this year, and this helps give that group of a surge of youth, athleticism and nastiness. I think he fits best at guard, but he maa get a shot at right tackle. I wondered about them considering Hendon Hooker to compete for the starting job, but it's hard to argue with this selection. Two players in the trenches tell you where this rebuild in Tampa Bay is headed. Grade A-

Another pick in the trenches for Tampa Bay, and Diaby is a good one. Like Kancey, Diaby is going to give a spark to this pass rush, and a much needed one after Shaq Barrett missed half the season with injuries last year. This team has clearly committed to improving in the trenches as the roster goes through a bit of an overhaul. In Diaby, they are getting an explosive player off the edge with the ability to develop into a future starter. Grade B

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.
