Just for fun: Bucs' projected lineup as of today



The Bucs' many moves this offseason have had a major impact on the team's starting lineup. Here's a quick effort at our best guesses of what that lineup looks like after the first two days of the NFL Draft.

Before I continue, a couple of points: I am not taking into consideration Aqib Talib's legal situation because we're only basing this on current situations. Also, though Ronde Barber is listed over Eric Wright, those two are likely to compete for the job and both are expected to play significantly under any scenario.
