PewterReport.com features a dozen young Day 2 and Day 3 running backs that Tampa Bay could target in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Bucs want a big, physical running back to complement slashing running back Charles Sims, last year’s third-round pick. Several of these running backs were featured in last week’s SR’s Fab 5 column, but for more insight into the big backs the Bucs are scouting click here to view this photo gallery.
With Tampa Bay likely drafting Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston in the first round and either selecting an offensive tackle or a defensive end in the second round, the Bucs could spend a draft pick on a running back anywhere from the third round to the seventh round. Tampa Bay has already scheduled private workouts with South Carolina running back Mike Davis and Florida’s Matt Jones.
