The Bucs have selected Notre Dame offensive lineman Robert Hainsey with the 95th overall pick in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Entering the draft with no pressing needs after returning 22 starters from their Super Bowl-winning team, Tampa Bay opted to improve their depth along the defensive line with Washington edge Joe Tryon in the first and added a young, developmental quarterback in Kyle Trask in the second. In the third round the Bucs have opted to bolster their depth at offensive line with a versatile lineman in Hainsey.
Jon Ledyard wrote about Hainsey in Pewter Report’s Draft Preview + Bucs’ Best Bets for the guard position. Read his evaluation below.
“Hainsey was out of his depth at right tackle for Notre Dame last season,” Ledyard said. “He really did all he could to keep rushers at bay. Technically, Hainsey is more pro-ready than many players ahead of him on this list. He simply lacks the great physical gifts in length or power to compete with more tools-y players. In the NFL, almost everyone is toolsy, putting an onus on Hainsey to make a position switch, possibly even to center. He’s explosive, technical and competitive, all traits that could make him a fun fit in a zone heavy offense as a third or fourth round pick.”
