Bucs agreed to terms with No. 126 overall pick DE William Gholston on a four-year contract.
Gholston is an imposing 6-foot-6, 281 pounds with 34-inch arms, but lacks high-end athleticism (4.96 40-yard dash, 1.73 ten-yard split). He's more adept at swallowing up blockers than exploding off the edge. Gholston will likely play limited snaps as a rotational end this season. Tue, May 14, 2013 04:08:00 PM

Bucs selected Michigan State DE William Gholston with the No. 126 overall pick.

Gholston (6-foot-6 1/4, 281) recorded 30 career tackles for loss and 10 sacks across 36 games for the Spartans, making 24 starts. Big Ten coaches voted him honorable mention all-conference last year. The cousin of former megabust Vernon Gholston, William is a pure five-technique, 3-4 end prospect who ran 4.96 at the Combine with a plodding 1.73 ten-yard split. He offers little natural edge-rushing ability, but possesses long arms (34") to control blockers. Gholston could line up at end on early downs before kicking inside on passing downs in Tampa Bay.
