Bucs use entire draft to bolster sagging offense

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, Fla. -

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have done what few considered possible under coach Lovie Smith - use the team's entire draft on improving a struggling offense.

The Bucs added Tennessee State guard Kadeem Edwards, Purdue tackle Kevin Panphile and Wyoming receiver Robert Herron on Saturday.

Tampa Bay drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans, Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and West Virginia running back Charles Sims in the first three rounds.

Smith replaced Greg Schiano as coach in January.

He had a long, successful run as coach of the Chicago Bears because his teams generally had a strong defense, however he's confident he has the Bucs headed in the right direction after acquiring six players with the potential to help them score more points.
