With their second round selection, here are five players the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could target with the 39th overall pick in the draft.
With the debate raging about who the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should take with the fifth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft between Devin White, Ed Oliver, and others, not much is talked about with who could be selected with the 39th pick in the draft. The Buccaneers have had several players in for pre-draft visits who would fit the bill with their second round selection, it is just a matter of how general manager Jason Licht has his draft board prioritized.
Over the past three drafts, Noah Spence, Roberto Aguayo, Justin Evans, Ronald Jones, Carlton Davis, and M.J. Stewart have been selected by Licht. Needless to say, he does not have a great track record when it comes to second round picks, as only one of the players mentioned have made much of an impact for the Bucs in Evans. Entering a crucial 2019 season, Licht must nail the picks within the first three rounds of this draft, at the bare minimum.
Expected to go heavy on the defensive side of the football, three players on this list appear in positions of need in Tampa Bay, such as cornerback, defensive line, and safety. Here are five players that the Buccaneers could target with their second round pick, the 39th overall pick in the draft.
