Buccaneers select a pass rusher, take Buffalo's Steven Means in the 5th round of the NFL draft

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected Buffalo pass rusher Steven Means in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

The pick continued a trend in which the Bucs have used five of their first six picks to upgrade a weak secondary and bolster the defensive line.

The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Means was a defensive end in college, but may get an opportunity to make Tampa Bay's roster as a linebacker. He had 18 1-2 sacks career sacks at Buffalo, fourth in school history.
