Conventional wisdom has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking a defensive end with the No. 20 overall pick in the draft.

But there are signs the Bucs could be willing to go in a different direction. In recent days, there have been reports of Alabama running back Mark Ingram and UCLA outside linebacker Akeem Ayers visiting with the Buccaneers.

Or maybe those are just smokescreens and the Bucs are really hoping a defensive end like Ryan Kerrigan, Adrian Clayborn or Justin Houston is available at No. 20.

General manager Mark Dominik and coach Raheem Morris will make the call on draft night. But here’s your chance to voice your opinion on what the Buccaneers need most.
