With the 143rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select OG Kadeem Edwards from Tennessee State University.

 

From NFL.com:

Won a state title as a Florida prep. Manned left guard all four years. As a true freshman in 2010, started 9 of 10 games played. Did not play against Austin Peay and did not start against North Carolina A&T. Started all 10 games played at LG in '11, missing just the season finale against Jacksonville State because of a left ankle sprain. Started all 11 games in '12. Started 12 of 13 games played in '13 -- did not play against Austin Peay and did not start against Eastern Illinois.

BOTTOM LINE: A soft-spoken, thickly built, long-armed FCS prospect, Edwards is a raw base blocker who must make significant strides with his technique, ratchet up his play-to-play intensity and learn to play with power.
