The Bucs have quietly been one of the best drafting teams over the last decade. Their roster doesn't have a glaring need, they historically have done well with trading down. General manager Jason Licht has plenty of equity with the organization after winning a playoff game a year after losing Tom Brady.

This slot could be useful for the Chiefs if they are looking to make a play for a defender they love who is falling. While tackle and receiver are obvious needs, there might not be a huge difference in that market 6 picks later. However, the Lions, Cardinals, and Ravens all about to pick could start a defensive run.

Trade Targets: Kool-Aid McKinstry, Jer'Zhan Newton, Darius Robinson and Copper DeJean
