Buccaneers go defense in 2nd round, draft S Justin Evans

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Texas A&M safety Justin Evans in the second round of the NFL draft, addressing a need for help in an overhauled secondary.

Evans was the 20th pick Friday night, No. 50 overall as general manager Jason Licht and second-year coach Dirk Koetter continue to try to surround Jameis Winston with pieces the young quarterback needs to be successful.

Alabama tight end O.J. Howard was the club's first-round selection. The hope is Evans will contribute right away in a defense that Licht began rebuilding two years ago, when the Bucs landed middle linebacker Kwon Alexander in the fourth round.
