What do the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need in the 2013 NFL Draft? Bucs team lost No. 13 overall pick

 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers already made a big splash with their first-round draft pick, trading it to the New York Jets in a package for cornerback Darrelle Revis.

With the biggest need on Tampa Bay's roster addressed, the team will be able to plug other holes during the draft, though they will have to do so without the No. 13 overall pick that was traded away.
 
Still, the 2013 draft is plenty deep for the Bucs to fill needs with their remaining picks.
 
Top Three Needs
 
  1. Tight end -The Buccaneers had the most productive offense in team history a year ago, but they need to find a way to become more consistent in 2013. One way to do so would be to find another weapon in the passing game, and the tight end position is in need of an upgrade.
  2. Defensive tackle - After losing Roy Miller in free agency, Tampa Bay could use some depth on the defensive line. Outside of Gerald McCoy, the team is lacking talent up front.
  3. Defensive end - Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers have been drafted early in recent years, giving the Buccaneers capable starters at both defensive end spots. However, the team could use some depth at the position, as they have few backups worthy of playing significant snaps.
 
Ideal first pick: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
