Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections

View Comments

Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

Round 1 (No. 32 overall) - Joe Tryon, LB, Washington: With their entire team coming back virtually intact, the Super Bowl champions had the luxury of doing just about anything here. But with the focus apparently on the short run and a repeat bid in 2021, GM Jason Licht boosts an already formidable pass rush that buried Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes in the playoffs. Draft tracker

Round 2 (64) - Kyle Trask, QB, Florida: He led FBS with 43 TD passes in 2020. Trask is huge at 6-5 and 236 pounds, but doesn't necessarily possess the huge arm Bruce Arians generally favors. Lightly recruited out of high school, Trask could find something in common with 2000 sixth-rounder Tom Brady as the Bucs bring in a potential successor once TB12 decides he's had enough ... which is at least age 45 according to the five-time Super Bowl MVP. Draft tracker 

Round 3 (95) - Robert Hainsey, OT, Notre Dame: At this point, he adds depth to a championship offensive line that appears set for the 2021 season. A right tackle for the Irish, Hainsey will probably have to add guard play to his resume. Draft tracker 

Round 4 (129, from Seahawks) - Jaelon Darden, WR, North Texas

Round 5 (176) - K.J. Britt, LB, Auburn

Round 7 (251, from Steelers) - Chris Wilcox, CB, BYU

Round 7 (259) - Grant Stuard, LB, Houston
