After acquiring cornerback Darrelle Revis, the Bucs may have solidified their cornerbacks as far as starters are concerned. But adding depth to the position in their secondary may still be needed. Or is it? No one knows what version of Darrelle Revis the Buccaneers are going to get. With that, if he re-injures his ACL or goes down for any other reason, the players on the current roster do not provide many options nor much experience. Leonard Johnson is probably the one with the most upside behind Revis and Eric Wright. Then there is Danny Gorrer, Anthony Gaitor, Myron Lewis, James Rogers, and Keith Tandy. From that list of backups, only Gorrer and Lewis carry the most experience with four years but very limited playing time. The depth doesn’t seem to be of a concern as before after the Revis signing. His skill set is far above the majority in the league — respectfully of course. It allows the Buccaneers to give him the freedom to cover the opposition’s top receiver with no concerns. But it still leaves the others on the roster to cover their assignments and that’s where the potential problem lies. General manager Mark Dominik stated their draft plans do not revolve around the return (or retirement) of Ronde Barber. What’s not to say that the team is perhaps hoping he returns to line up opposite of Darrelle Revis? What if the starting secondary week one is Barber, Revis, Goldson, and Barron? Not discrediting Eric Wright, but if Barber returns — to be a starter — then quarterbacks will have a tougher time choosing which side of the field to throw the ball to. Not to mention, depth at the position may become an after thought. Revis on the roster takes what was once a huge problem on the Buccaneers defense and turns it into just another position they can add depth to if they choose to. Certainly the Bucs can still draft a corner or two this week. However, the Bucs can now choose to go many different routes and still come out OK.
