2012 NFL Draft Results: Buccaneers Trade Up, Select Lavonte David In Round 2 With No. 58 Pick

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Lavonte David with the No. 58 pick after trading up ten spots from the top of the 3rd round into the end of the 2nd round. David is a 6'1, 220 pound linebacker out of Nebraska. He was one of the top senior linebackers in the country last year and one of the best in his class for the 2012 Draft. He is super fast but a little undersized at the outside linebacker position.

While the Buccaneers received Houston's 2nd round pick at No. 58 and their 7th round pick at No. 233, they shipped out their 3rd rounder ten spots later at No. 68 along with their 4th round pick, the No. 126 pick.

It was the Buccaneers first selection of the evening, after being active on the trade market in the 1st Round and then moving back in the 2nd round. They're scheduled to be done for the night but at the rate they're trading, they could still make noise in Round 3.
