Rick Stroud, Bucs beat writer @NFLStroud: One of the realities of a lack of continuity in the coaching staff is that whole draft classes can be lost. Players are drafted to fit particular schemes. They are evaluated differently as well. It’s clear that Bruce Arians is in charge of things now. He’s worked closely with Jason Licht before but the new staff put its handprint on this class. The Bucs selected three defensive backs last season. Now they have three more with an emphasis on speed and press coverage skills. Arians’ emphasis on the kicking game most likely prompted the Bucs to use a fifth round pick on one. With Cairo Santos already signed and the Bucs having punter Bradley Pinion to kick off, it appeared the PK job was set. But Arians has nothing to do with Roberto Aguayo. Still, no risk it no biscuit. The hell with the critics. Overall, the Bucs failure to adress the right side of the offensive line may be a mistake. And in a draft considered the deepest defensive line class in a decade, it’s shocking the Bucs waited until the later rounds to address that area. But no draft is perfect. Devin White will be a very good player and a key piece. Arians has the quarterback of his defense. He has Jameis Winston. He has versatile players. Time to play. RELATED STORY: Bucs picks, round by round Eduardo A. Encina, Bucs/pro sports enterprise writer, @EddieintheYard: The adoration of Devin White, the influx of defensive backs, the fifth-round selection of a kicker, they all point to the fact that the new coaching staff is getting to select their guys. Jason Licht might have been the one making the phone calls, but he’s already been down this road before, and it didn’t work. But he hasn’t taken this path with Bruce Arians and his empowered staff in his ear. Licht’s last quote Sunday was telling. He admitted the personnel discussions with Arians can get contentious, but that “with Bruce, even the arguments are fun….You can see why people just follow him.” RELATED STORY: Even the kicker was surprised Bucs took him in the fifth round Thomas Bassinger, sports data reporter, @tometrics: My takeaway from this draft: The Bucs coaching staff had lots of input, and general manager Jason Licht was a very good listener. Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles to Licht: I want tall, fast, physical, ball-hawking cornerbacks. Licht: Your wish is my command. Bruce Arians: I want a kicker. Licht: Um, well, you see, a few years ago … Arians: Jaaaason … Licht: Matt Gay it is! It made sense that the Bucs spent three Day 2 picks on defensive backs. If you saw the games against the Bears and Panthers last season, that shouldn’t have been a surprise. Tarik Cohen and Curtis Samuel are fast and all, but the Bucs missed tackles like those guys were invisible. The kicker pick, though, makes me question everything. Fifth-round picks often don’t pan out, but they’re not throw-away picks, especially for a team that lacks depth. Cornerback Amani Oruwariye (Lions), receiver Hunter Renfrow (Raiders), defensive tackle Kingsley Keke (Packers) and linebackers Mack Wilson (Browns) and Justin Hollins (Broncos) all came off the board soon afterward. They weren’t worth a look? RELATED STORY: The names have changed, but the doubt remains Ernest Hooper, columnist/assistant sports editor, @hoop4you: The Bucs’ overall draft approach seemed to place far too much weight on taking the best athlete available and not enough on filling needs. The right side of the offensive line should be a concern even though Bucs GM Jason Licht says Alex Cappa and Caleb Benenoch are improving. But they didn’t draft an offensive linemen this year. Tampa Bay had a chance to select Clemson WR Hunter Renfrow with its fifth-round pick, a natural replacement for free agent departure Adam Humphries. Or it could have selected a third-down running back. Or really, anyone who could fill a need.Instead, they selected a kicker. Both lines remain low on depth, and could have used an infusion of talent.
