To say that the Buccaneers are in major need of a wide receiver would be crazy. What they do have a need for, though, is a talented slot receiver. Having someone to pair up with Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson who can help move the chains would be huge. Also, it would just be another weapon for whichever quarterback the Bucs decide to choose No. 1 overall. A few interesting options include players like Tyler Lockett, Ty Montgomery or Jamison Crowder.

The Buccaneers have plenty of running backs on their roster. The question is: are any of them going to step up and become the man? At the worst, the Bucs should bring in a running back from this very deep class to see if they can take over the job. Sure, Charles Sims, Doug Martin, Bobby Rainey and Mike James are all on the roster, but don't overlook the Bucs potentially bringing in a back to compete. Players to watch for may include Mike Davis, Javorius Allen or David Cobb.

Whomever the Bucs take at No. 1 is going to need some additional protection. Sure, the team has Evan Dietrich-Smith and Logan Mankins, but aside from that, an upgrade at one of the other three spots is very likely. Expect Tampa to target a guy like La'el Collins, D.J. Humphries or T.J. Clemmings, and they may do it as early as the second round. Why invest in a franchise quarterback if you don't have the best possible line to protect him?

The Tampa Bay Bucs have done well this offseason at bringing in depth at quite a few positions. One position they failed to truly upgrade was defensive end. The good news for the Bucs is that there are quite a few intriguing ends in this draft. Guys like Preston Smith, Eli Harold, Nate Orchard or even potentially Owa Odighizuwa would make for interesting fits in this defense. Don't expect Tampa to wait much later than the second or third round to upgrade at defensive end.

And the shocker of the entire list ... the No. 1 need is at the quarterback position. The team already parted ways with Josh McCown and now they're rumored to be shopping Mike Glennon again. It's all but official that the Buccaneers will be drafting a quarterback with the top pick and that it will either be Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota. Which will it be? Unless it's a major smokescreen, it's looking more and more like Winston is the quarterback of the future in Tampa Bay.
