The entire 2023 draft class has now officially signed their rookie deals.

The Tampa Bay Bucs today signed second-round pick Cody Mauch, the No. 48 overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft. Tampa Bay has now signed all eight members of its draft class.

Mauch (6-5, 302) spent six years at North Dakota State University (2017-22), appearing in 62 games, including every game from 2019-2022. During Mauch’s time with the program, the Bison boasted a .907 winning percentage, with four FCS national championships and four Missouri Valley Football conference titles. Mauch was named Associated Press first-team All-America in 2022, second-team All-America in 2021 and was recognized three times as an All-Missouri Valley Conference performer (2020-22). In addition, Mauch was named the 2022 Phil Steele FCS Offensive Lineman of the Year after starting all 15 games at left tackle for a team that ranked fourth nationally in rushing yards per game (265.7). He is a native of Hankinson, North Dakota, and wears No. 69 for Tampa Bay.

Mauch’s signing puts the 2023 draft class under contract as rookies reported Monday for the start of training camp.
