The Bucs now have 12 picks in this year’s draft. They just added a seventh-round pick by trading quarterback Byron Leftwich to Pittsburgh, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Give general manager Mark Dominik extra points for being able to get anything for Leftwich, who lost his starting job early last season and appeared to have almost no trade value since the rest of the league knew he wasn't in Tampa Bay's plans. But Pittsburgh, facing the possibility of discipline for Ben Roethlisberger, was desperate for depth and Leftwich is a guy who previously played for the Steelers.
