The Tampa Bay Buccaneers depth chart got a lot deeper after they brought in a few names over the offseason. They will go from Jameis Winston to Tom Brady, but also bring in Rob Gronkowski to muck up the tight end position. OJ Howard and Cameron Brate are all expected to slide down to allow Gronkowski to be a primed player, however, Tampa should line up with two tight ends. The best receiving duo in the league in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but they did draft Justin Watson and Tyler Johnson over the last few seasons to give them some depth. They also added Ke'Shawn Vaughn who will compete with Ronald Jones for a starting role.

Will Peyton Barber Hold Onto Starting Job?

Ronald Jones struggled right out of the gates for his rookie season, and Peyton Barber ended up being a decent option when called upon. He had a hefty role in terms of snaps and touches, but Bruce Arians is already looking at this running back group for a battle. Arians has been giving praise for the second-year back out of USC, which is a boost of confidence after such a tough year. Both players are certainly going to get touches, but the roles of both are still unclear. Barber had 871 rushing yards and six touchdowns last season, but wasn't uber efficient either. Jones saw the field in just nine games, and had under 100 all-purpose yards. He is a second year back who was taken second round, so there isn't any expectations for him like there were last season.

What Can Winston Do With These Weapons?

It was an on and off year for Jameis Winston. He shared time with Ryan Fitzpatrick, and played just nine games. He completed 65% of his passes, averaged 7.9 yards per attempt. The problem was once again the decision making. He threw 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. These were less than stellar numbers for the former first rounder. With no competition this season, Winston will be under center with a similar receiving core. There is no Adam Humphries or DeSean Jackson. However, Chris Godwin is ready to step into a larger role. Mike Evans is also still a reliable target for Winston. OJ Howard is also ready to roll and flashed big potential last season. The offense around Winston has never been the problem. Bruce Arians is the right coach for getting guys going, and that can be the case for Winston.

Will This Defense Stop Anybody?

The Buccaneers gave up the second most points per game last season, and struggled against the run and pass. Overall this group needed to be addressed, but the depth chart is not kind for any sort of bounce back. They did draft Devin White high in the 2019 draft. That won't be enough just yet, and in fact most of their draft picks were on the defensive side. However they won't quite get meaningful snaps just yet. The secondary is a major question mark and there is a reason why you will see the Bucs in a lot of high scoring games. That is because the defense is so bad. This defense is a work in progress, and Todd Bowles shouldn't have high expectations for himself in year one with Tampa Bay.
