Bucs signed fifth-round DE Steven Means to a four-year contract.
Means didn't generate much pre-draft notice, but the Bucs believe the Buffalo alum offers a lot of upside as a situational pass rusher. He recorded 19.5 sacks and 30.5 career tackles for loss in college. End is a weakness on Tampa's defense, so there's reason to believe Means has a chance to play as a rookie.

Bucs coach Greg Schiano says No. 147 overall pick Steven Means will play defensive end.

Means played defensive end in college at Buffalo, but many thought he would play strong-side linebacker in the pros due to his 6-foot-4, 250-pound frame. "We're very excited about him being a developing pass rusher," said GM Mark Dominik. "We think he has tremendous traits."

Bucs selected Buffalo LB Steven Means with the No. 147 overall in the draft.

Means played some defensive end in college and will likely play strong side linebacker in the NFL. Other than Lavonte David, the Bucs have some issues at the linebacker position, but we wouldn't expect Means to contribute early. He recorded 30.5 career tackles for loss, including 19.5 sacks.
