Bucs had a great draft; here's the kicker
John Clayton loves the moves Tampa Bay GM Jason Licht pulled off during the draft, including moving up to select Roberto Aguayo. The Bucs fielded one of Clayton's favorite classes from the 2016 draft. Clayton: Top draft classes
Draft hurt Glennon's market
No trade worth making for Mike Glennon ever came across Tampa Bay GM Jason Licht's desk, and Glennon remains on the roster for at least one more year. Why was Glennon's market impacted by the draft more than the other tradable quarterbacks? NFL trade market
The Buccaneers released place-kicker Connor Barth on Monday, two days after they used a second-round pick to draft Roberto Aguayo.
ESPN Insider's NFL draft experts recap the 2016 draft for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, including Mel Kiper's draft grades, Todd McShay's favorite pick and more.
Bucs took some chances
Mel Kiper Jr. likes Tampa Bay's selections of both Vernon Hargreaves III and Noah Spence, but only gave the Bucs' draft a "B-." Why the middling grade? Note, it has nothing to do with drafting a kicker. NFL draft grades (Insider)
Bucs' best pick: Vernon Hargreaves III
The cornerback from Florida has outstanding instincts and ball skills. Hargreaves will help a Tampa Bay secondary that ranked among the worst in the league in several categories. Todd McShay (Insider)
Kickers with Mexican heritage have done well in the NFL before -- can Aguayo be next with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took some risks with early picks, but landed potential significant upgrades for their pass rush and kicking game.
After an offseason of speculation that he would be traded during the draft, Mike Glennon can concentrate on being Jameis Winston's backup in Tampa.

Highlights: Dan Vitale
Tampa Bay opted for a fullback in Round 6, taking the former Northwestern "superback" at No. 197 overall. Check out some of Vitale's best highlights.

Highlights: Caleb Benenoch
The Buccaneers grabbed the former UCLA O-lineman at No. 148 overall. Check out some of Benenoch's best highlights.
