Tampa Bay trades with Buffalo to get back into the fifth round and select OT Kevin Pamphile (OT, Purdue) with the 149th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

 

From NFL.com:

STRENGTHS: Very good foot quickness to shadow and mirror defenders in pass protection. Outstanding 10-yard split (1.77 seconds) and 40 time (4.94) at his pro-day workout. Functional positional blocker in the run game to seal and wall off. Good base strength and balance -- is seldom on the ground.

WEAKNESSES: Developing eyes and blocking instincts. Soft puncher -- is still learning how to use his hands and sustain. Raw technician -- does not coordinate his hands and feet in unison and is susceptible to inside counters and quick movement. Marginal finisher -- does not run his feet and gives up too early on blocks. Could use more glass in his diet.

DRAFT PROJECTION: Round 7-Priority free agent

BOTTOM LINE: Raw prep hoopster who only played one year of high school football and entered the program as a defensive tackle. College left tackle with intriguing foot quickness and length to be groomed in a zone-blocking scheme. Developmental project.

TRADE DETAILS:
The Bucs traded this year's seventh round pick (221) and 2015's fifth round selection - the pick they received from Baltimore in exchange for Jeremy Zuttah.
