1 - DT - Logan Hall - Houston
Played in every game as a rookie 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
Started the first seven games of the 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
Had an excellent rookie season moving into the starting role at mid-season and proving to be an elusive runner and excellent receiver out of the backfield too. 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
Proved to be an excellent rookie receiving tight end and came up with several big plays including the game-winning touchdown against the Rams. Missed one game following the death of his mother. 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
Had an outstanding rookie season and set a franchise record for gross punting average. Also handled kickoffs for the season. Also recorded six special teams tackles and made a highlight reel play against Carolina 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
Was inactive for the first four games through injury but then played in the remaining 13 games 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
Solid blocker who made the roster out of camp despite being a late round selection. Was used far more as a blocker than fellow-rookie Cade Otton but scored his first NFL TD in the game against Cleveland. 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.
The 2022 Buccaneer draft review
The Bucs picked alternatively 27th and 28th through the draft. They gained additional 4th and 6th round picks by swopping
selections 27 and 33 with Jacksonville. The 6th round pick was traded to Buffalo to move up in the 2nd round. They gained additional
5th and 7th round picks from Jacksonville in return for a 2023 4th round pick. A 6th round pick was traded to the Jets in the Steve
McLendon deal. They also traded two 7th round picks for an additional 6th round selection.
