Bucs' fifth-round draft picks under Dominik

2012, Pick No. 140

Najee Goode, LB

College: West Virginia

Years with Bucs: 1

Analysis: Goode saw action in just three games last season but did have some memorable moments during the preseason. With the starting trio at linebacker locked in at the start of the season and veterans Dakoda Watson and Adam Hayward ahead of him on the depth chart, Goode had few opportunities to prove his worth. Expect him to be more in the mix for 2013.

2011, Pick No. 151

Ahmad Black, S

College: Florida

Years with Bucs: 2

Analysis: An ankle injury early in his rookie season limited his development, and he started the regular season on the practice squad. But Black earned a spot on the roster for four games and finished well. He followed that with a strong second season, appearing in all 16 games, with one start. Black became a fixture in the secondary, playing in a three-safety rotation behind Ronde Barber, who sometimes played slot cornerback. Black finished with two interceptions and 36 tackles.

2009, Pick No. 155

Xavier Fulton, OT

College: Illinois

Years with Bucs: 1

Analysis: Fulton never appeared in a game for the Bucs. He was placed on injured reserve before his rookie season and failed to make the roster in his second season. Offensive tackle remains a thin position for the Bucs and might have to be addressed in this draft.

Note: 2010 pick was part of a trade for tight end Kellen Winslow.
