Buccaneers sign two draft picks


The Buccaneers have begun their draft pick signings.

The club announced deals with Tennessee State offensive guard Kadeem Edwards (Round Five, No. 143 overall) and Wyoming wide receiver Robert Herron (Round Six, No. 185) on Friday.

Edwards (6-4, 313) started 42 games in four collegiate seasons. After the draft, Buccaneers G.M. Jason Licht indicated Edwards would be tried at both guard spots.

Herron (5-9, 193) will compete for work at slot receiver and as a returner. He caught 72 passes for 937 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013 for the Cowboys.

The Buccaneers have four unsigned picks, including wide receiver Mike Evans, their first-round selection.
