After signing Tom Brady and trading for Rob Gronkowski in 2020, along with a variety of other impact moves in free agency, they upgraded their offensive line by drafting Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs to come in and be their starting right tackle.
Here, they get a right guard to go next to him in Wyatt Davis who would give the Bucs two of the biggest, quickest linemen on the right side of the line in the league.
Obviously, the window with Brady is small and protecting him is paramount. Davis is a great short and long-term investment at this juncture of the draft.
The Bucs could have used some defensive line reinforcements even before they re-signed veteran Ndamukong Suh. Suh is getting older, and even as he maintains effectiveness, a long-term replacement will be needed up front.
Tufele is scheme versatile and an excellent interior pass rusher who would be a great value this late in round two.
