The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected eight new faces to join their roster during the 2022 NFL Draft, the first draft under new head coach Todd Bowles.

Bowles took over from long-time coach Bruce Arians during a busy offseason for Tampa Bay, thanks to Tom Brady, who announced his retirement before making a sensational U-turn and deciding to return to the team for 2022.

Here are the new players the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected during the 2022 draft:

Round 2 (33) DL Logan Hall, Houston

Round 2 (57) G Luke Goedeke, Central Michigan

Round 3 (91) RB Rachaad White, Arizona State

Round 4 (106) TE Cade Otton, Washington

Round 4 (133) P Jake Camarda, Georgia

Round 5 (157) CB Zyon McCollum, Sam Houston State

Round 6 (218) TE Ko Kieft, Minnesota

Round 7 (248) OLB Andre Anthony, LSU
