According to’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.

The Bucs currently have a first, second, third, fourth, fifth and two seventh round picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.
