The Tampa Bay Buccaneers believe they accomplished their major goals of upgrading the defensive line and a porous secondary through the draft after going 5-11 and missing the playoffs for the 10th consecutive season. The Buccaneers added more defensive pieces Saturday Julius Peppers Jersey , taking Pitt safety Jordan Whitehead in the fourth round and Wisconsin linebacker Jack Cichy during the sixth.
”Thirty-one teams passed up (taking me) so I’ve got a chip on my shoulder coming in already,” Whitehead said.
Cichy didn’t play in 2017 because of a knee injury that occurred in preseason camp.
”I feel great,” he said. ”I’m real close to 100 percent. I think by the time I get down there for minicamp and OTAs I’ll be 100 percent.”
Tampa Bay used its first-round pick Thursday to take Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea 12th overall. He will be plugged into a revamped defensive line anchored by six-time Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy and bolstered by last month’s trade for pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul and the signing of Beau Allen, Vinny Curry and Mitch Unrein in free agency.
Tampa Bay ranked last in the NFL with 23 sacks a year ago.
The Buccaneers used a pair of second-round selections Friday to take cornerbacks M.J. Stewart from North Carolina and Auburn’s Carlton Davis.
”We feel great,” Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht said. ”There’s more of a better vibe, not that it was ever bad, more high-fives and more positive energy with all the coaches and scouts this year than I can remember.”
Bucs coach Dirk Koetter knows that 6-foot-6, 304-pound guard Alex Cappa, taken in the third round from Division II Humboldt State Authentic John Tavares Jersey , will be facing a major step-up in competition. ”That’s a different level of football,” Koetter said. ”Right when his season was over, he goes down to Phoenix and works out at an O-line place with a bunch of NFL guys. He’s the right kind of guy but there’s definitely a transition.”
Tampa Bay has had previous drafting success with small-school offensive lineman, taking starting guard Ali Marpet from Division III Hobart College in the second round of the 2015 draft.
Former Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis is Whitehead’s cousin.
”He gave me a lot of advice going through this process,” Whitehead said. ”Stay humble, anything can happen throughout this weekend.”
Second-round selection Ronald Jones II from USC is an explosive runner who the Buccaneers feel is faster than generally known.
”He’s got track times, the ran guy 10.3-something 100-meters and multiple 10.5’s,” Koetter said. ”He runs hard. He’s going to bring something.”
The Buccaneers took Penn wide receiver Justin Watson in the fifth round. He will graduate after taking his last final Wednesday at Penn’s Wharton School.
”I didn’t have a lot of I-A offers, in fact the only two offers I had at the I-A level were Buffalo and Akron out of the MAC ,” Watson said. ”For me, Penn was just the best fit for both football and academics.”
Tampa Bay could look to add depth at safety and the offensive line before the start of training camp.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went the R-E-L-A-X route to diffuse concerns about the team a couple of years ago and the head coach of another NFC North team is going with a variation on that this year.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed on Thursday that left guard Nick Easton will be placed on injured reserve after having neck surgery this week. Easton’s loss will leave the team without a projected starter on the offensive line and injuries to center Pat Elflein and right guard Mike Remmers have some worried about what kind of shape the Vikings are in up front.
Zimmer showed no panic, however.
“We’re going to figure out a way to get it done, so: Calm. Tweet that,” Zimmer said, via (what else) a tweet from Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “That’s my new saying. We’re going to get a bunch of Mike Zimmer Foundation T-shirts that say, ‘Tweet that.'”
Tom Compton is up next at left guard and has 71 games of NFL experience with 15 career starts. The team has four preseason games and the rest of August to consider other options, including those that might become available via trade or release by other teams.
