PewterReport.com unveils its second mock draft of 2014 and makes its projections for the Buccaneers' five draft picks. Why is Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins projected to go in the first round to Tampa Bay? Find out in this PewterReport.com article.
Before we get to the latest PewterReport.com mock draft for the Buccaneers, here are some thoughts on the teams selecting ahead of Tampa Bay in the 2014 NFL Draft.

• Houston will either take South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney or a quarterback.

• Assuming they keep they keep the second overall pick, St. Louis will either take Clowney or an offensive tackle.

• The Jaguars and Browns will likely take quarterbacks, and the Raiders, who pick fifth overall, will take one of the top three quarterbacks if there is one left over, or Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

• Atlanta will probably take a pass rusher like Buffalo’s Khalil Mack with the sixth overall pick as defensive end Kroy Biermann is coming off a torn Achilles tendon, and the Falcons’ lone pass rushing threat last year was defensive end Osi Umenyiora.

While it’s difficult to accurately forecast what the Buccaneers will do in the 2014 draft prior to free agency, here’s PewterReport.com’s latest projections for the Tampa Bay’s five picks.

ROUND 1 – Clemson WR Sammy Watkins (junior)
Previous selection: Fresno State QB Derek Carr

The Buccaneers seem willing to give second-year quarterback Mike Glennon the 2014 season to prove that he can be the team’s long-term answer at quarterback, so that takes away the need to draft Fresno State’s Derek Carr in the first round. Instead, the Buccaneers need to add a big-play wideout as the receiver position underwhelmed last year outside of Vincent Jackson, who caught a career-high 78 passes for 1,224 yards and eight touchdowns. Tampa Bay ranked dead last in yards after catch in 2013.

At 6-foot-1, 205, Watkins plays bigger than his size due to his long arms and big hands. He had a record-setting season as a junior in 2013, catching 101 passes for 1,464 yards (14.5 avg.) and 12 touchdowns, due to a Clemson and Orange Bowl-record 16 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns in a 40-35 victory over Ohio State. Watkins is a rare talent as he is a big receiver that possesses small receiver speed. Expected to run in the 4.4-range at the Combine, Watkins had touchdown catches of 91 and 96 yards in 2013 and had 12 offensive plays of 50 yards or more in his three years with the Tigers.

Watkins burst onto the scene as a freshman, catching 82 passes for 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns. His numbers fell in 2012 as injuries and an early season suspension for an offseason marijuana arrest that caused him to lose focus. But Watkins regained that focus in 2013 and has positioned himself as a top 10 pick and the top-rated receiver in the 2014 draft.

The Bucs need a complete receiver with leaping ability to be a viable red zone target and the deep speed to be a yards-after-catch threat. Watkins brings added value as a kick returner, as he returned 60 kickoffs for 1,376 yards (22.9 avg.) and one touchdown at Clemson. With Jackson turning 31 in January and some possible questions about Mike Williams’ work ethic and recent misdemeanor charges, Watkins would be an ideal fit in Jeff Tedford’s offense for the long haul and it would be hard for the Buccaneers to bypass him if he’s still available with the seventh overall pick.

Here’s a highlight video of Watkins’ big-play ability at Clemson.

ROUND 2 – Stanford DE Trent Murphy (senior)
Previous selection: Pittsburgh DT Aaron Donald

Donald’s stock has risen to the bottom of the first round due to a tremendous week in Mobile, Ala. at the Senior Bowl, so he’s out of play for Tampa Bay in the second round. There is also a chance the Buccaneers could sign Bears free agent Henry Melton in free agency to shore up the defensive tackle position, so head coach Lovie Smith can address the defensive end position in the draft and get an edge rusher that the defense desperately needs. With defensive ends Adrian Clayborn and Da’Quan Bowers entering a contract year, the Bucs need to find a pass-rushing defensive end for the future.

Murphy is one of the most prolific pass rushers over the past three seasons, notching 36 sacks, 11 pass breakups, three forced fumbles and also picking off two passes near the line of scrimmage and returning them for touchdowns. Playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, and also defensive end in a 4-3 defense, Murphy also recorded 160 tackles and 42.5 tackles for loss in his Cardinal career. Two of Murphy’s sacks came against Tedford’s Cal teams in 2011 and 2012.

The 6-foot-6, 261-pound Stanford defender lived in opposing backfields in 2013 with 23.5 tackles for loss and 15 sacks, which led the nation, in addition to 62 tackles. He also broke up six passes, recorded two forced fumbles and had a pick-six. That earned Murphy All-American and first-team All-Pac 12 accolades.

Murphy is a long, angular pass rusher with a mean streak and underrated athleticism. He has the intelligence and strength to properly set the edge on defense. Murphy has the high motor, work ethic and quick hands that new Bucs defensive line coach Joe Cullen craves, in addition to the skill set to develop into a Jared Allen-type player.

Here are some highlights of Murphy’s junior year and his senior year.

ROUND 3 – Traded to NY Jets for CB Darrelle Revis

ROUND 4 – Oregon State CB Rashaad Reynolds (junior)
Previous selection: North Carolina DE Kareem Martin

The Buccaneers need a playmaking nickel back to team with cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Johnthan Banks. The criteria include fluid hips to cover slot receivers, a nose for the football and good tackling ability to stop the run. The 5-foot-10, 191-pound Reynolds would be an ideal fit in Lovie Smith and Leslie Frazier’s Cover 2.

Reynolds has great ball skills, evidenced by six interceptions and four pass breakups in 2013, including a pick of Oregon’s Marcus Mariota. In his Beavers career, Reynolds amassed 170 tackles, 25 pass breakups, 10 interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Both of Reynolds’ fumble recoveries went for touchdowns and proved to be the difference against Boise State in Oregon State’s 38-23 win in the Hawaii Bowl. In a 52-24 win over bowl-bound Washington State last year, Reynolds dominated with six tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a pass breakup.

Cornerbacks in the Tampa 2 scheme have to be great tacklers and not afraid of contact. Reynolds has a strong, compact build and relishes big hits. He has the skills to press at the line of scrimmage and re-route receivers, as well as playing off in zone coverage. Reynolds could have upped his stock by staying for his senior year, but will instead be a mid-round steal for the Buccaneers if he lasts until the fourth round, which is possible because taller corners are the rage right now in the NFL.

Here is a highlight video of Reynolds from the 2012 season.

ROUND 5 – California DT DeAndre Coleman (senior)
Previous selection: Fresno State TE Marcel Jensen

The Buccaneers could use more depth at the defensive tackle position and more pass rush from the nose tackle spot. While Coleman won’t make any Tampa Bay fan forget Brad Culpepper or Booger McFarland, the 6-foot-5, 315-pound Coleman does provide a good interior push and is a more accomplished pass rusher than Akeem Spence, who had just 3.5 sacks in three years at Illinois and only one sack in 16 games as a rookie.

Coleman entered his senior season with 45 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, five sacks and two pass breakups, and posted 40 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and a safety, including one of UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley in 2013. Coleman played for Tedford at Cal for three years so the Buccaneers should be able to get some serious insight into his former player.

Coleman is viewed as a player with tremendous upside due to his size and physical ability, and perhaps Tedford’s presence in Tampa Bay can help coax more out of the athletic tackle. Coleman flashed his skill set at the Senior Bowl and likely upped his stock to that of a fifth-rounder.

Here is a highlight video of Coleman against Washington last year in which he had four tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack and a pass breakup.

ROUND 6 – Traded to Chicago for OT Gabe Carimi

ROUND 7 – California TE Richard Rodgers (junior)
Previous selection: Baylor WR Tevin Reese

The Buccaneers need another tight end to team with Tim Wright and Tom Crabtree, preferably one that is well rounded and has the ability to be a receiver and blocker. Tampa Bay has the chance to get a familiar face for Tedford in one of his former players, Rodgers, who left school after his junior season.

After recruiting him to Cal, Tedford said Rodgers could become the best tight end in the nation, but he never quite lived up to that potential after Tedford was fired after the 2012 season. Although he’s young, Rodgers has an NFL body at 6-foot-4, 255 pounds and could grow into a starter over time with coaching by position coach Jon Embree and Tedford.

Rodgers had 39 receptions for 608 yards and one touchdown in 2013 and finished his career with 59 receptions for 896 yards two touchdowns. He had three 100-yard games at Cal, including one against Stanford, and finished his career with six catches of 30 yards or more, including four receptions of 50 yards or more. Rodgers is developing his blocking skills and is already a very good cut blocker at the line of scrimmage. If he slips to the seventh round, Rodgers would be a steal for the Buccaneers.

Here is a highlight video of Rodgers against Stanford last year in which he had five catches for 125 yards.

    I like this list! It seems very plausible and would help our team a great deal.
  • avatar

    I guess we are going to try to suck again next year to get Jameis then.
  • avatar


    I would love this draft, we get our pass rusher that we desperatly need and another playmaker for Glennon. Maybe its wishful thinking, but I think this staff gives Freeman another shot to resurrect his career. They say we need an "athlete" and a "veteran". Freeman fits both discriptions and is only 25 years old. I believe in giving people 2nd chances, won't hurt to try right?
  • avatar


    If Watkins is on the board, we should trade down with Baltimore. They desperately need a WR and should be willing to pay well for it. We can take a premium OT, which should give Glennon a real shot to flourish next year.
  • avatar


    I'm still bummed the about the Bucs drafting last of the 4 - 12 teams (due to strength in schedule!). Seems like they would draw numbers among teams with the same record. Anyway, I'd be thrilled if our 1st round pick is any of the following: LT Greg Robinson of Auburn, WR Watkins of Clemson, or QB Bortles/Manziel if any of them are available when we pick.
  • avatar


    I think Tampa could get a qty wr in Rd-2 3-4 or 5 If Tampa would trade downexample the NYJets.Here is my senario Trade with NYJ give them #7 for #18, switch with jets in Rd-2 and get one of jets 2 3rd round pick. Then we can get that Def player we wanted, A cb in Rd-2 aq OT in Rd-3 a player in RD_4,5 &7.
  • avatar


    Don't you just love this time of year? Mocking is so much fun. You're right Buc4life79 about our lack of success in drafting wide receivers in the first round. Of course, we haven't fared much better in the later rounds either except Kevin House and a couple others. In trying to predict what the Bucs will do in May, we really are attempting to guess what they really think of Mike Glennon. In my view this Draft can be approached in two simple ways: 1.) Finish building an already talented Defense and rely on it to win games with Glennon leading a conservative game plan with the return of our corps of running backs and Barth to keep games close. 2.) Assume the Defense is adequate now and add some "juice" to the Offense. That surely might start at QB if the new GM and staff believe they can land one to be the "face of the franchise" and not simply another "just a guy" type. Me, I really like the moxie of Johnny Manziel but doubt he will be there at # 7. Carr may be a good fit but not with the 7th pick. Trade down and take him in the teens or later and gather more choices to add offensive weapons and big boys.
  • avatar


    Still no oline help?? I'm of the belief Sammy W will be gone when we pick. He's going to blaze at the Combine and probably have some other freaky athletic numbers... my hunch - and I'm cool with it - is we end up with that tackle from Auburn or Mathews. One of those two will almost certainly be available and worthy. Two things I'm confident of ... we'll address pass rush with a vet in FA, and we aren't drafting a QB in the first round.
  • avatar

    What we do in the draft won't become clear until after we see what Lovie and Licht do in FA. With the cuts (expect more to come) freeing up additional cap space I wouldn't put it past Lovie to go after Hardy in FA...Is it what I would want to see? NO...I would rather see us go after Jared Allen, Peanut Tillman and Alex Mack for nearly the same money it would cost to sign Hardy. They all have ties to the coaches and would already know the schemes and I think Allen and Tillman would take the defense over the top. With FA now finished...lol...I think drafting Sammy Watkins at 7 is a no brainer...exactly what Tedford is looking for when he said we needed "in space" types of talent. Here's where I am going to propose something that I haven't seen elsewhere...Trade up back into the first round depending on what happens and when and what we have to give up...Maybe our 2nd a 2nd from next year and whatever else it takes and drafting Jace Amaro or Seferian-Jenkins...I'm not completely sold on Glennon but until we get viable options on offense and make it a well rounded offense we won't ever know and if worst comes to worst and Glennon doesn't at least turn into a game manager we will have an offense that will entice some QB to want to play here!
  • avatar

    Watkins is a rare talent and would be hard to pass up but we need blue chip LT to replace the aging and fat Penn for the future. I would be happy with either a LT, Watkins or Mosely with that pick as far as Murphy in the second I love that selection I have seen him live against ASU and he is big and strong and is a sound tackler against the run. As far as the other picks I guess cause I don't know much about them.
  • avatar


    Why are we still talking about Bowers? He has had his chances,he has proven to be a bust and needs to be cut.Bucs have the worst pass rush in the NFL.Both our starters at DE,could be waived and it wouldn't matter.Clayborne is beyond average,John Cannon average at DE.Bucs should take Matthews or Robinson,and if Watkins is there at #7 you must take him.Move Foster to the strong side and find a MLB who can cover.Even with my joy of this new coaching staff,we still have many questions and holes on this roster.8-8 next season would be a miracle with our schedule and uncertainty with Glennon.
  • avatar


    Gabe Jackson is going to be a star IMO, this years Warford (lions) and I'd love to see him drafted in the second.
  • avatar


    I must admit I'd love to get Watkins in the first round, but if you look at the recent success of san fran and seattle the first drafts they had with their current coaches focused heavily on the offensive lines. There are some monster tackles and guards in this draft and it would be nice to build a dominant O-line. I don't get SR's fascination with murphy from Stanford, I didn't see any explosiveness and he reminds me of a 5 technique. Why not add the black mamba from Oregon? I agree with Horse -- we need to get some SEC players. I'm still holding out hope for Garrapolo in the second or manziel in the first, but I do love Watkins and Mathews... Boring Mock overall.
  • avatar


    We were 4-12 and that says we are pretty bad. We need potential stars not depth. I would be happy with this draft. It gets players at our three most needy positions. Not in the order of need, but there will not be a DE worth the 7th pick available. The only positions not addressed are OT and QB. I can only hope we sign someone in FA. Another need is a DT that can start for Spence (his marijuana charge may become a distraction for the young man and impact his play). Its less of a need than the other positions. Two good mocks guys. Thanks for the evaluations.
  • avatar


    Not too exciting,pretty grim IMO..I guess it's better we lower our expectations- Shiano boned us yet again- gave two players away to his man crush and our stupid team bought into his BS and won a few meaningless games anyway..we now are in position to get another wave of so so players..hope Smith has some luck with the FA market,not to exited if this is how the draft pans out..
  • avatar


    I also want to add that we should listen to the men who are putting this team together. Frazier has told us that Lovie needs a mike LB that can cover to run his defense. Lovie also said that Nicks is hard at work rehabbing at OBP. Does that mean that we can expect him back at 100%? If not we need a dependable LG from somewhere. Trading down a few spots for LB CJ Moseley might not be a bad idea or taking either OG Cyril Richardson or Gabe Jackson in the second would help too. I know those are needs, I just don't know where they come from - FA or the draft.
  • avatar

    NO NO...NOOOOO. Watkins at #7!?!? Another Clemson product!?!?! NO. Another 1st round wide reciever and another Clemson product!?!?! NO. He's not worth the 7th overall pick in the draft..just isn't, and he doesn't have the skill set or build of a Julio Jones, who also took 3 years as a pro to start paying back his top 10 investment...NO. Given the first 6 mock picks in this draft scenario, the ONLY decision that makes sense is trading back and accumulating more picks...Watkins at 7 WOULD BE a BUST for the Bucs...doesn't matter how utterly stupid mike williams has become....watkins at 7 would be a BUST.
  • avatar

    IF Sammy is there at 7 its had to pass him up but this team could use all the picks it can get for depth purposes. To me Watkins is the one player worth taking at 7 that could fall to the Bucs besides the top 3 QBs but they will most likely be gone by the 5th pick. So Watkins or trade down.
  • avatar


    To me, our #1 need is QB. I just don't see Glennon's upside as being high enough (at his best, he would be a top 20 QB? Maybe?). In an ideal world Bortles would fall to us. But that probably won't happen. I could live with Manziel-boom or bust- and I could maybe talk myself into Bridgewater maybe. After that, I think it's OL (2), DT, TE, DE, WR. So if not a QB in round 1, Clowney slipping would be awesome, but that is like a 1% chance, so if not him I would take Watkins or an OT. After that, go best player. It would be nice to fill a few needs in FA (Vick maybe?, Jared Allen, a 2/3 corner), but with the draft, we have to go best player, at least for 1st 2 rounds. I hope for Bortles, but we at least need to get a really good player at #7, and Watkins is probably the best one there.
  • avatar


    I really like the Watkins, Murphy picks. Murphy is a good DE who has had time to develope in college. He is also known for being mean on the field which is what our D-Line needs. I have been reading that Watkins has been unofficially clocked in the 4.25-4.30 range though. If he runs a fast 4.3 40 yd time he might not fall to the 7th pick.
  • avatar


    Well guys I thought Tampa could do better and recoup a 3rd pick. How about this Tampa make a trade with nyjets.They select Tampa no#7 pick and Tampa swaps 2nd round picks with Jets Plus Tampa pick jets 3rd rd pick. That's means @ no#18 Tampa selects DE/OLB Dee Ford(senior bowl standout. Then getting that DE/OLB at #18.Then with Jets 2nd pick they go after a TE/OT or best play available.Plus they get NYJ 3rd pick along with tampa 4 &5 round picks Tampa could get quality players-Go Bucs
  • avatar

    If Watkins isn't available I like the idea of trading down. With number 3 pick gone to Revis and multiple positions needed to fill we could use an additional second round... especially if we are uncertain of Glennon. If that was to happen we could still pick up Trent Murphy as well as Garappolo.
  • avatar

    I think we should just draft best available or look to trade down. This is a deep draft, but even the elite prospects have significant red flags (see: Clowney, motivation). Matthews or Robinson at the top of the draft would be fine with me to rehabilitate the O-Line. So would Watkins or even Mike Evans at WR. I like Anthony Barr and Khalil Mack, but I'm not sure how they project in a 4-3. I don't expect us to make huge deals in free agency (Greg Hardy, for example), but signing guys like Tillman, Hester, and/or Allen would fill some wholes and give us more flexibility in the draft.
  • avatar


    The Bucs already have a tackling slot corner in Marc Anthony from Cal. Tedford recruited and coached him. We also have Deveron Carr who has similar skills. My personal opinion is that Anthony Gaitor was in Schiano's doghouse, but is as good as any CB that we would draft for the slot. We have the coaching staff to develop our own players now. Don't forget about the Seattle model just yet! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiEe6FSKF84
  • avatar

    I like the players in this mock draft. However, shouldn't we address the offensive line as a high priority? Perhaps before a defensive tackle? Power running has been stressed this off season and injury's are natural among our line and a second season QB, an immobile one at that, should need some security. Just some thoughts.
  • avatar


    @buctebow- The coaching staff has gone on record saying they can salvage Bowers so what we think should happen is irrelevant. If Bowers stays on the roster, which by all accounts he will, then Bowers, Gholston, Clayborn and potentially Allen would be a solid rotation and as a result drafting a 5th DE would be a luxury(in the 2nd round) considering the other needs we have and the value available with our 2nd round pick.
  • avatar


    Claiborn is steady, but not really everything that we need. Gholston is still young, he may improve, I don't see that they can salvage Bowers, he doesnt seem to have the mindset to overcome adversity that is required and the NFL is all about overcoming adversity. Allen would be a nice pick up for 3rd down situations. I don't see how that group can get to 45 plus sacks and that is where they need to be to win as a defensive team.
  • avatar


    I certainly understand your point I just dont agree with writing off a very talented DE that's 23 years old especially considering the piss poor coaching he received with Schiano and Comp. There won't be a player available in the 2nd round more talented than Bowers so Im ok with our coaches earning their pay and getting him to perform as a rotational player.
  • avatar


    5 picks is what stands out to me, 5 lousy picks. I don't see Sammy Watkins being there when we pick, so choose somebody else. They better choose wisely, as the cream of the crop will be gone, with no sure fire winners at pick 7. Lovie better Licht it up! It looks like we are back to free agency to fill holes. I'm still mad at SchianOfer8 for screwing up this draft.
  • avatar


    Buctebow, I disagree with you on Watkins being there at pick 7. Unless the Rams grab him at 2, he will be there. Considering that 3 Qb's and Clowney will go in the top 5 picks and probably a LT also. I dont think the Falcons will pick him at 6 either. Unless one of the top 3 Qb's fall to the Raiders, they will probably go defense also (Barr or Mack). If he is gone then we need to draft LT or DE.
  • avatar


    I agree completely with all the posters calling for Garappolo in the second round if he is there. We need to sign Jared Allen for a one year contract while our DL Coach develops both Gholston and Bowers (both of which are better prospects than a 260 pound DE from Standford). Given the problems with Williams and the age of our No. 1 Receiver, and now learning that Watkins has "blazing speed"; instead of an opposite report I read, I see value in grabbing Watkins if he is still on the board at 7. I think Spence will improve in his second year, and I don't believe the DT you came up with can out muscle Spence. Spence does not have to get a bunch of sacks as long as it takes double teams to corral Spence, freeing up room for McCoy to harass the QB just like we did in the Sapp days. Spence was also good against the run and can shed blocks and has a big motor. As long as our two backups from last year are still in good shape, we don't need any more DTs. I liked how Landri played when he was in last year. Besides Gholston is strong enough to move inside in an emergency too. The rest of your Mock was very good Scott. If we land Grappolo in the 2d, he will quickly outshine Turtle Glennon in the preseason if given a fair competition, and should be our starting QB in our first game. It also is consistent with Lovie's wish to have athletes in every position and increase our speed in space this year.
  • avatar

    Im so torn between a starting left tackle and Mr.Watkins at WR I cant stand it. So im resigned to take whichever one is still available. Just hope both aren't their when we pick. This is were our GM and Coach make their money because this pick needs to be a Probowler.
  • avatar


    I can't believe bucs won't try for a starting qb ! Glennon isn't accurate on the long ball ,can't pass to his left on the run and isn't mobile. Why settle for the worst qb, even in our own division?
  • avatar


    Maybe they are trying to maintain the Bucs longstanding tradition of having a crappy QB.....or it could be a smokescreen to their true intentions.
  • avatar


    If this guy is the closest thing to Calvin Johnson out there, why wouldn't we do this? We need another impact receiver desperately.
  • avatar


    Watkins - wouldn't it be nice if he was still there at our pick?
  • avatar


    Sammy Watkins is just what this offense needs, a big physical WR with breakaway speed. If we go out and sign Jared Allen this offseason I would rather see us use our 2nd round pick on Garrapolo like 1bucfanjeff mentioned. He's better mobility wise in the pocket than Glennon and can make all the throws. Drafting Murphy would be a luxury considering we still have Bowers and Goldston as developmental DEs so adding another wouldnt be wise with so many other pressing needs IMO. Much better mock this time around but FA will help clear up our draft priorities.
  • avatar


    Are you crazy, a luxury? No Bowers is not a developmental player, he is a cut waiting to happen and a waste of a roster spot in training camp, time to move on. I would rather have an undrafted DE use his spot.
  • avatar


    About as good guess as anyone. At least in this mock draft you have a couple ACC players; still no SEC players. I hope in the real draft there will be some.
  • avatar

    What's with the fascination of the SEC guys...I'll agree there are some that can become stars in the NFL but for the most part the success of the SEC is because they have a bunch of good players that the coaches get the most out of. Great players come from every conference...I don't and never will look at prospects by where they played for the most part...Khalil Mack in your way of looking at things is irrelevant...Though I ain't sold on him either, at least in Lovie's scheme. Which WR would you rather have ...Watkins or Evans? which QB...Bortles or Manziel?..Which DE..Clowney or Ealy? What I'm trying to say is that if you look to draft or even lean towards one conference over the other you're going to let the better player get past you.
  • avatar


    FA will dictate our draft and give us a better idea of what will be, but I would like to see Garapolo in the 2nd. His accuracy and quick release are two very ideal traits for a QB in today's game. Throw in better than average mobility and seemingly strong football IQ and he could be a great value pick. I love the Watkins pick in round 1. LOVE it. He's been my favorite pick for a long time.
