2012 NFL Draft Results: Buccaneers Finish Draft By Selecting TE Drake Dunsmore

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wrapped up the 2012 draft by adding another skill position player on the offensive side of the ball at the end of Round 7. Northwestern tight end Drake Dunsmore was selected by the Bucs No. 233 overall, and No. 26 in the 7th round. Dunsmore is a solid, if not spectacular, tight end prospect who lacked the athleticism to be a top flight prospect. He's a reliable and consistent pass-catcher and route-runner, however, and we've seen tight end prospects come from deep in the draft on several occasions in recent years. He's a smaller tight end who can be used in short-yarage situations and may challenge for a spot in the rotation.
