The Tampa Bay Buccaneers feel they've already had a strong draft.

Landing three-time All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis in exchange for the 13th overall pick of the first round not only addressed the team's biggest need, but offers general manager Mark Dominik and coach Greg Schiano some flexibility in the team's approach in later rounds.

The acquisition of Revis from the New York Jets won't necessarily preclude the Bucs from seeking more help for what figures to be a much improved secondary, however it does enhance the prospect of targeting a tight end, change-of-pace running back or maybe even a quarterback before pursuing additional reinforcements for the defense.
