1 - DT - Logan Hall - Houston Started most of the games in his second NFL season but had less of an impact than his rookie campaign where he played every game coming off the bench. Had sacks in two of his first five games in the NFL but saw less playing time as the season wore on. Was the Bucs' top selection in the 2022 draft and the first selection of the second round. Ranked second in the AAC in sacks in his senior season and played in 46 games during his collegiate career. 2 - G - Luke Goedeke - Central Michigan Switched to right tackle in his second NFL season and started every game there in 2023. Had started the first seven games of his rookie season at left guard but struggled and did not get his spot back after missing four games with injury. Started the season finale at right tackle after injuries hit the regular line up. Was the Bucs' 2nd round pick having started all 24 games he was active for in college and was one of the highest-rated guards going into the draft. 3 - RB - Rachaad White - Arizona State Started every game in 2023 and was as good out of the backfield as a receiver as he was runner inside or outside the tackles ending just short of a 1,000-yard season. Moved into the starting role at mid-season in 2022 and had his first 100-yard rushing game in the win over Seattle. Averaged almost 100 yards per game in his final two seasons at Arizona State and was an excellent 3rd round selection. 4 - TE - Cade Otton - Washington Started every game in his second NFL season and is established as the No.1 TE on the roster. Had proven to be an excellent rookie receiving tight end and came up with several big plays including the game-winning touchdown against the Rams. One of two tight ends taken in the 2022 draft and much more of a receiving threat having amassed 91 receptions for 1,026 yards and nine scores in his college career. Was a first-team All-Pac 12 as a junior in 2020. 4 - P - Jake Camarda - Georgina Leads the Buccaneer punting records by a considerable amount after his first two NFL seasons and has three times tied the franchise record for the longest punt with a 74 yard effort. Has also handled kickoffs for his two seasons. Made a highlight reel play against Carolina in his rookie season when he recovered an errant snap and made a punt on the run down to the goal-line. Was the first punter selected in the 2022 draft and the second time the Bucs have used a 4th round pick on a punter. Played four seasons for Georgia and was part of the national title winning team in 2021. 5 - CB - Zyon McCollum - Sam Houston State Started over half the games in 2023 either replacing an injured starter or in nickel formations and made himself a key part of the defense in his second NFL season. Played in the final 13 games of his rookie season and made three starts in nickel formations. Was also a key part of the special teams coverage units. Started 52 games at Sam Houston State and was named third team All-American as a senior despite playing away from the big college spotlight. 6 - TE - Ko Kieft - Minnesota Remains the Bucs’ primary blocking tight end who caught only one pass in his second NFL season but it went for a touchdown against the Packers. Has also been a key member of the special teams’ coverage units since being drafted. Only had 12 receptions in his collegiate career but was always known more for his blocking abilities 7 - LB - Andre Anthony - LSU Did not make the roster out of training camp. Was coming off a season-ending injury and did not put up big numbers at LSU.
