Bucs on pace for a top-10 draft pick



The season isn't over just yet, but we can start to look ahead to what the season's results will mean for Tampa Bay's draft position.

If the season ended today, the Bucs would hold the No. 6 overall choice in April's draft. There are three teams with 4-10 records -- the Bucs are joined by the Browns and Jaguars -- but the Bucs have played the toughest record of the three, meaning they receive a lower draft position.

If the Bucs end up with a top-10 pick, which seems almost certain even with two games remaining, it would be their fourth top-10 choice in a span of eight drafts.
