How Many Draft Picks Did the Buccaneers Have Entering the 2023 NFL Draft?
Not shy about making draft-pick trades, the Buccaneers still have all their Day 1 and Day 2 selections.
Currently, the only round in which the Bucs do not have a pick is the fourth. In last year’s draft, they traded it away to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for pick Nos. 157 and 235 in the 2022 NFL Draft. They used the 157th selection on cornerback Zyon McCollum and wound up trading pick No. 235.
The reason Tampa Bay has nine total selections instead of seven is were awarded two compensatory picks. The Bucs received one for losing S Jordan Whitehead and the other for losing TE O.J. Howard during free agency. Compensatory picks are tacked on at the end of each round.

As a result of previous trades, the Bucs also have extra picks in the sixth and seventh rounds. Last year, they sent linebacker Grant Stuard and a seventh-rounder to the Indianapolis Colts for a sixth-round choice. And way back in 2020, Tampa Bay sent a 2022 sixth-round pick to the New York Jets for nose tackle Steve McLendon and a 2023 seventh-rounder.
The Bucs have enjoyed three years of success following signing Tom Brady. With Brady retired, they have the remnants of a win-now roster without the quarterback.
While the Bucs are outwardly committed to Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask, it’s hard to imagine they actually believe either is the answer at quarterback. Look for the Bucs to use their abundance of picks to plan for the future and set this team up to begin seriously competing again in 2024 or 2025.
