Mock Draft Monday: Claiborne or...Jonathan Martin?

 Feb 13, 2012 12:02 PM EST in NFL Draft




Charlie Neibergall - AP
Iowa offensive lineman Riley Reiff (77) celebrates with teammates after their 24-16 win over No. 13 Michigan in an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011, in Iowa City, Iowa.




While just two weeks ago the Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft day debate seemed to be focused on Trent Richardson and Morris Claiborne, I'm seeing a new trend in mock drafts: offensive tackles. Iowa offensive tackle Riley Reiff has been repeatedly mocked to the Bucs, and I've also seen Stanford OT Jonathan Martin pop by a couple of times.

Ryan Van Bibber's latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft doesn't feature an offensive tackle for the Bucs, as he continues to go with the sensible pick of cornerback Morris Claiborne. But a six-round mock draft posted at Mocking the Draft does give the Bucs an offensive tackle, and it surely isn't the only mock draft to do so.

The problem with selecting a tackle that high in the draft for the Bucs is two-fold: they don't need a left tackle as Donald Penn is perfectly fine in that position, and selecting a right tackle with the fifth overall pick is generally a poor use of your assets. The Bucs could still select a tackle with their first pick with the intention of moving him to left tackle once Donald Penn's contract runs out, but that's really the only scenario I see to justify such a selection.

If Claiborne is gone, trade down with Jacksonville for the #7 and #71 and draft Riley Rieff @ #7

I would be happy with that.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

We need TWO corners and ONE offensive tackle. So do we take the #1 rated corner in the draft or the #3 rated tackle? Law of averages prevail, Claiborne if he is there at #5 is the choice. We will pick up one of the free agent corners prior to the 2012 draft. If Talib should some how get out of his gun charge our secondary could become scary good. I still hold out hope for Demar Dotson to take over for Trueblood in 2012 or 2013. There are a few good right tackles available in FA if the coaches feel that Trueblood is not the answer going forward. Sign one or draft one in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Claiborne. Pick up Nicks and Gaither or McNeil in FA.

Giving special treatment to players who are "perfectly fine" is how you don't win a playoff game for a decade.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

That has been the approach. 

The Bucs should take whatever player they think is the best player available and that will have the longest impact on the franchise, as opposed to what we need this year

I want to see as many new starters on that O-line as we can pull off.

Claiborne.

Touchdown/touchback/shotdownfieldbucs....I want the same..but also want to see as many new starters on that Defense as possible. Defense es mucho mas patetico.


Hell, brees might not be as accurate as manziel.

Sorry, I don't speak Spanish. How about 11 new starters altogether? Would that be nice? Muy bueno?

We don't NEED a RT.

We have other positions filled which are much more important. Examples: LG, CB (2), LB-at least 1, S, RB and backup QB.

To me those are NEEDS!
