    If you traded Phillip Dorsett for Lockett all of the top 4 are my favorite guys. That’s pretty awesome. Dorsett is the real deal, and that’s coming from someone who thinks 6′ tall is a midget. Lol.

      Dorsett will not make it to the 3rd round he is a solid 2nd round pick but he is not worth the 2nd pick in the 2nd round.

    Good looking mock, I just don’t think we can wait that long to get an offensive lineman. I would take one in the second and third then worry about middle linebacker or slot reciever in the fourth.

    Like this but I don’t see Kendricks OR Lockett being there when we pull the trigger.

    I would be happy with this line up though I worry about how late in this mock we address the O-line,especially if we are drafting a franchise QB..Fingers crossed that Kendricks is still there at the top of two..
    My prediction for draft day is if Mariota falls to the Raiders time on the clock,they make a trade with the Eagles~Eagles nab Mariota and the raiders load up on picks…

    Really? No OL until round 4. Of course that will work. It worked last year right? If we are picking Winston first, we have to upgrade tackle and guard or he is going the way of David Carr. We have to protect our investment and a functional OL will protect him when throwing and protect him by improving the running game. So just give up taking a WR at all and certainly not a RB. Neither of these picks will amount to nothing without a functional OL.

    It wouldn’t surprise me to see two O-linemen come off the board in the second and third; especially if they trade Glennon for a third rounder. e

    I guess I’m with the rest of you, I believe we need O-Line help early. Don’t see some of these picks being available when we are on the clock. Looks like a wishful thinking Mock more then a reality mock.

    Good mock! Assuming we address OT via FA next month we won’t have to address that need in the 2nd or 3rd round and stay true to our board and a BPA approach. With Dotson moving over to LT and Pamphile returning as a the back up swing OT we have get a starting caliber RT in FA. Their are some good OG prospects that should be their in rounds 3-5 that can battle in TC w/ last years 5th Kadeem Edwards for the starting spot opposite Mankins.

    Dotson should stay where he is. He is serviceable at best and is not a spring chicken either. His replacement should have already been drafted imo. There is not one O-lineman on the roster that graded out very well. Both Penn and Zuttah had better grades,sadly enough.

    If Jameis is the pick then I would prefer the BUCs go after Cam Erving in the 2nd to help Jameis.

    According to PFT, several franchises have become candidates for significant spending in Free Agency. The franchises to watch are the Falcons, Buccaneers, Raiders, Jaguars, and Bills.

    With about 27mil in cap space after adjusting for the rookie draft pool, that number is likely to increase due to further cuts (Goldson/Koenen/Collins), restructures (Jackson), and trades (Glennon/Martin). The Bucs are likely to have cap space in excess of 40mil by March 10th.

    Do not be surprised if there is some odd trade of Michael Johnson back to the Bengals as they have recently made public their possible interest. Maybe we can make a package deal with Collins and Johnson.

    I like Scott’s draft, but before you can accurately forecast the draft, you really need to have some idea of what the Bucs do in FA. However, here is my best guess today assuming they’re going to get (1) O-Line, (1) D-Line (1) OLB, and (1) secondary.

    Macabee’s 2015 7 Round Mock Draft V3
    ROUND 1 – QB Jameis Winston/ FSU – 6-4, 230
    ROUND 2 – C/OT Cameron Erving/FSU – 6-5, 320
    ROUND 3 – ILB Stephone Anthony/Clemson – 6-3, 243, 4.56
    ROUND 3 – (Trade for Glennon) OG Trae Jackson/ FSU – 6-4, 330, 5.52
    ROUND 4 – FS Durrell Eskridge/Syracuse – 6-3, 208, 4.63
    ROUND 5 – RB Matt Jones/UF – 6-2, 231, 4.61
    ROUND 5 – CB Justin Cox/Miss St – 6-1, 191, 4.36
    ROUND 6 – (St. Louis)) DE Lynden Trail/Norfolk St. – 6-6, 262
    ROUND 7 – TE Jean Sifrin/UMass – 6-5, 245, 484

      Wow Mac, that is a pretty damn good draft. I think that would be perfect for us although some names I don’t know. The first 3 rounds you have are a ridiculously good fit. Putting two of Jameis’ teammates in front of him would be huge. I however think it’s a pipe dream to think Cam is going to be there in the second. I really think a team like New England will take him. They would do something like that.

        CG, I like size speed and fit for Lovie’s scheme. Youtube some of these guys and you will see what I mean. You’re probably right about Erving, but all of the top 10 OTs and the top 2 ILBs are not going in the first round.Most of the mocks have Lovie taking DE Odighizuwa in the 2nd. I say O-Line!

          True, I think a great steal in the third would be tre jackson. He’s been talking to the bucs a lot and he didn’t blow up the combine stats wise, so that should help him slip a bit. Even as a Noles fan this guys stats are pretty damn good. Gave up 1.5 sacks in three years and not called once for a holding. How about that, a Tampa lineman that might not hold somebody. I think we need to go lineman in the 2nd and third. Pick up an additional third for a glennon trade and fill another need such as ILB or slot receivers. We do have options.

      wow, now that’s a draft right there. One could only dream for that scenario…not sure if cox and trail will be available at those positions. I’m a FSU fan, but honestly would prefer the O line kid from TAMU, as he has better potential moving around the line and if recovered from injury can start at right tackle.

      I would love that draft, however, A. Cameron Erving isn’t falling to Rd 2 IMO (though I would be stoked if he did) and B. I severely doubt we are getting a 3rd for Glennon and the Sr Bowl MVP Tre Jackson falls to the 3rd. It would be amazing, it, however, would be severely unlikely.

        Looked at 20 mocks, found 3 with Pats taking Erving at 32. Newcomer DJ Humphries may push him into the 2nd round. Just keeping my fingers crossed!

      This mock makes dramatically more sense than PR’s. I would only quibble with the RB and TE picks, as we did that last year and have too many holes to fill. We can probably get Wright back from NE after they cut him and if unless we blew our RB pick last year we have enough to get by with this yr. Nice job

    Here are some players to look for: Frank Clark, DE, domestic violence; DGB, WR,domestic violence; A J Johnson, MLB, rape; Noah Spence, DT, possession of date rape drugs; Karlos Williams, RB, domestic violence; Ron Darby, CB, wingman and videographer for JW doing the deed. None convicted of a crime, four suspended and/or kicked off team, three applauded and continued to play for FSU. What a surprise. Perfect draft and even a team leader selected first. Go Bucs.

    Beside the fact that I obviously believe Mariota will be the 1st round pick I think this is a fairly good mock draft. I actually love the idea of getting Kendricks in the 2nd round. He would be great value at that spot at a position of great need. However, the more I think about his height and weight the more Tyler Lockett sounds like a high 4th round pick to me. I’m thinking he or a nickel CB is our 4th round pick and an OG is our 3rd round pick. I think there will be 1 if not 2 future Pro Bowl caliber OG’s left at the top of the 3rd round. That’s how deep the position is this year.

      I too love the idea of Kendricks, but I think we really need to go with offensive lineman in rounds two and three. We are not deep at all and what we have is terrible. Either QB we pick is going to take an ass whopping behind that line. Slot receiver or ILB in the 4th a nickle corner 5th. That’s not counting trades which would change everything.

    3 glaring needs for our Bucs: QB, OL, ILB, and that is how they should be addressed. You want to throw more fuel on a raging fan base fire, draft a QB and have another horrible OL (because FA worked great last year). Drafting OL in the 4th isn’t going to bring any mercy. After drafting QB &OL if the Bucs need to move up to get a good ILB do it.

    I would like to think Glennon can grow and develop some more and we should pick Leonard Williams; but, I digress . . .

    A thought that came to my mind last night is that Marcus Mariota could be a better redzone Qb than Jamies Winston. Winston is better in between the twenties with his big arm; Mariota is better in the redzone with his quick read decision making and scrambling ability. Winston can get the ball down field if the deep ball is even allowed by the D; Mariota can scramble around and get lots of first downs; Winston makes for quick strike(if there), Mariota makes for long, get the D tired drives, and every now and then, when the D decides to cheat too much, Mariota can hit the short to intermediate pass that can go for the long one as well. Sorry Winston fans . . . and I’m not even arguing about off the field issues . . . Mariota is the better Qb!

      found this, http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2327855-marcus-mariotas-achilles-heel-costs-ducks-national-title , Marcus Mariota’s Achilles heel is redzone!

      I hope Winston is the next Dan Marino; but, I see a Elway/Favre/Rothlesberger arm than a Namath/Marino/Jeff George arm; I know its nitpicking, but I’ve always noticed the difference.

    Rather grab a tackle in second as much as I love Kendricks we played Cousins at LT cause we have zero depth and Im not impressed with Pamphile either. Take Jake Fisher or Cameron Irving in second take Stephon Anthony in third, take a guard twice in fourth

    However you slice it we have more holes to fill than this draft will address for sure. I think we need O line second round. This draft also doesn’t really do anything to help pass rush. Better skip WR and RB as it all starts up front. Depressing we have some many holes still and have rotten luck with free agents for most part.

    I really don’t get your love affair with Lockett? With some of the top G’s that will possibly be there, why in the world would they take a small slot WR when they have Herron, Murphy, and possibly a FA WR they might bring in.

    well buc fans I have thought about this. What would really happen if Tampa did trade with Phila and Tampa receieves all of the first 6 picks. Boy Phila get Mariota at #1 but the computer said that Tampa could still get the FSU at 20. Plus Tampa would have 12 more picks and wow what a selection of talent would be available. Good players at each position. But if winston is gone get Hundley at #20 and keep Glen to teach Hundley. That would give the bucs a lot of options and they would be winners in 2015 and 2016.Go Bucs

    I’m O.K. with Kendricks unless Erving is there. I think the kid will be a pro bowl center, the fact he played with Winston would make it an added bonus.

    Scott Reynolds, I swear you are the biggest k-state homer, always pushing your k-state players every year. I love your articles and such but I would respect more of it if it were more well rounded. Oh the power of the media! I really think we need a starter in the o-line as well as a nickel back that is a better quick twitch athlete than diggs, who many sites were unimpressed with at the combine. for mlb imho i feel the kid from clemson has a higher ceiling in Lovie’s turnover driven system.

    I doubt Donovan Smith will make it the 4th round (especially not the pick we have which is St Louis)

    Wagenmann in the 5th? He would be lucky to be a 7th, probably an FA. If we want a DE here, Geneo Grissom, Anthony Chickillo or CJ Olaniyan.

    If we want Feliciano, we should trade down. He will still be there with our 7th round pick. I would rather have Aundrey Walker, Josue Matias, Max Gracia, or Jarvis Harrison.
