The Bucs already hold the 11th pick in the second round, but they gave up their 13th overall pick to acquire Revis from the New York Jets about a week before the draft. They're scheduled to pick No. 43 and No. 73 on Day 2.

It's unknown what direction Tampa will go with their Day 2 picks, but with needs at defensive end, they could be looking for one of the pass rushers that's falling. Tight end is another possibility--Mocking The Draft's Dan Kadar currently projects the Bucs to select Stanford's Zach Ertz with the 43rd overall pick.
