Pre-draft starting lineup: Buccaneers

4/8/2013

With free agency slowing to a trickle, here’s how I see the projected starting lineup for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers heading into the NFL draft:

OFFENSE

WR Vincent Jackson

LT Donald Penn

LG Carl Nicks

C Jeremy Zuttah

G Davin Joseph

T Demar Dotson

TE Luke Stocker

WR Mike Williams

QB Josh Freeman

RB Doug Martin

FB Erik Lorig

DEFENSE

DE Adrian Clayborn

DT Derek Landri

DT Gerald McCoy

DE Da'Quan Bowers

OLB Lavonte David

MLB Mason Foster

OLB Adam Hayward

CB Eric Wright

CB Leonard Johnson

SS Mark Barron

FS Dashon Goldson

Notes: There’s a good chance the Bucs could bring a pass-catching tight end or re-sign Dallas Clark. By the time training camp rolls around, Hayward could have a challenger in place for the starting job. The situation at cornerback is very tentative. It’s unclear if Wright will remain with the team, and the Bucs could trade for Darrelle Revis.
