The Bucs have already upgraded the skill positions this offseason to look like a much better team in 2020, and now in the NFL Draft the team went ahead and picked up an offensive linemen in Iowa tackle Tristan Wirfs.

Janna Laine of ESPN gave her take as to why the Bucs went this route with the 13th overall pick:

The Bucs have a soon-to-be 43-year-old quarterback in Tom Brady, and Wirfs will have a big role in protecting him.
