Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2024 NFL draft picks: Full list by round

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seven picks in the 2024 NFL draft, owning the No. 26 pick in the first round.

The Bucs are coming off of a 9-8 record, which was good enough to win the NFC South and get them into playoffs — where they fell in the divisional round to the Detroit Lions. They spent a lot of money this offseason, but it was to retain players rather than bring them in. Tampa will look to fill some of its holes in the draft, where it has four of the top 100 picks.

The draft will take place at Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza in Detroit from April 25 through April 27. Round 1 starts at 8 p.m. ET, while Rounds 2 and 3 will be April 26, starting at 7 p.m. ET. Rounds 4 through 7 begin at noon ET on April 27. The draft will broadcast on ESPN, ABC, ESPN+ and the ESPN App. There are 257 total picks in the draft.

Here’s the full list of the Bucs’ draft picks by round, along with a look at their top roster needs headed into the 2024 season.

Buccaneers’ 2024 draft picks

Note: An asterisk denotes a compensatory selection.

Top three needs: OLB, C, G. In a cap-saving move, the Bucs cut ties with Pro Bowl outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett and didn’t address that position in free agency. Yaya Diaby did lead the Bucs with 7.5 sacks his rookie season, and the team is excited about the growth of Markees Watts and Jose Ramirez, but the Bucs don’t have a game-wrecker at the position. Anthony Nelson is more of a rotational player and coach Todd Bowles feels Joe Tryon-Shoyinka is more of a “Joker” type player who can move around. So look for them to take an outside linebacker in the draft.

Tampa Bay also needs to get better at interior run blocking, with holes at both center and left guard. — Jenna Laine
