According to OverTheCap.com’s annual compensatory pick projections for the 2021 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be in line for one fifth round compensatory pick as a result of losing WR Breshad Perriman to the New York Jets in free agency. Perriman signed a one-year, $6.5 million contract with the Jets during the 2020 offseason.
I've released my final projection for the 2021 compensatory picks.
Due to all the changes that have happened in 2020, I do not expect to be as accurate on this projection as I have been in the past. Don't be surprised if I get a few of these wrong.https://t.co/rGEtwmCvfz
As Nick Korte explains in the article, he doesn’t expect to be as accurate as he’s been in the past with these projections, so we’ll see what the Bucs end up pulling in by the time comp picks are officially announced this offseason. The Bucs currently have a first, second, third, fourth, fifth and two seventh round picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.
