To date, the Buccaneers have had a lot of prospects either in for visits or put through personal workouts, but none of the players linked to the Bucs have been offensive linemen. Well, until now.
According to reports, Pitt OT T.J. Clemmings has had private workouts with the Bucs, along with the Vikings, Cardinals, Browns, and Colts.
Clemmings is an interesting prospect. He has the talent and athleticism of a sure-fire top 10 offensive tackle, but he is as raw as an offensive tackle gets.
Clemmings is a converted basketball player who started his collegiate career at Pitt on the defensive side of the ball. In 2014, he transitioned to right tackle and played just one year along the offensive line.
Obviously, there are many teams intrigued by what Clemmings can become. I seriously doubt he makes it all the way to the Bucs pick at the top of the 2nd round. With teams like the Chiefs, Panthers, and Colts desperate for offensive line help in the 2nd half of the 1st round, a run on offensive tackles right before the Bucs' 2nd round pick is possible.
The good news for the Bucs is that there is a plethora of offensive tackles in this draft, which should produce one of these top tackles to be available to them in the 2nd round. Along with Clemmings, Andrus Peat, D.J. Humphries, Ereck Flowers, La'el Collins, Jake Fisher, and Donovan Smith could all find themselves in the late 1st/early 2nd round mix.
