Bucs receive compensatory seventh-round pick



The Bucs will now have 11 draft picks this year, including four seventh-rounders.

The team received a seventh-round compensatory pick (53rd overall) for losing players, such as defensive tackle Jovan Haye and cornerback Phillip Buchanon, to free agency.

"It's nice to have one more guy you can go out and pick that you don't have to try and (sign him) as a free agent,'' Bucs GM Mark Dominik said.
