    After Winston God I hope the Draft doesn’t go this way.. Don’t like Clemmings at all after he had his lunch eaten at the Senior Bowl

      Well NJBuc-I agree. Nut I think Tampa is having a smoke screen. This is my reaqson Tampa has the no#1 pick. Tampa has 2nd pick in the 2nd Rd and #1 pick in the 3rd Rd. I think Tampa could do two ways. Forget a QB in Rd-1. Get the #1 Draft Defensive Linemen in the draft. Then trade back in the first Rd with Cleveland at 19 abd get Qb Brett Hundley.I’d say why not. Give Cleveland Tampa #34 pick and a 3rd Rd next year plus Tampa 2nd Pick in Rd-4(NE) and then go after the remainer needs of the Team #3rd Rd pick trade down for more picks. This way if Mike Glen can prepared Hundley for the future. Plus Tampa has the cornstone of Defensive Line for the future for bucs. Can you imagine what Leonard Williams Impact for Tampa Now and the future. Or Get M. Mariota in rd-1,In Rd-2 Offensive Linemen.In Rd-3 another Defensive Jewel. Forget Winston. Tampa come on have a little Gut and build a winner now without red flags on players that will baCKFIRE IN THE FUTURE.

        You would pass on Jameis Winston and take a D-lineman in round 1. Then trade back up to round 1 to draft Brett Hundley. I’m glad Todd Licht is still gm.

        Guys I think its a smoke screen from a different viewpoint. I think Winston does has issuses and he is trying to convence everyone else those problems are in the past. I believe now Mariota is the answer on the field . I have been looking at one of the magazines that shows the difference in QB’s plus a great amount of knowledge about this yr draft.Defense wins championship this is why I think certain positions are deep in the draft. After the QB in rd-1 one I would draft the best player available that are not deep in the draft first, and then go aFTER A CERTAIN POSITIONS THAT ARE DRAFT ON THR BOARD GO BUCS.We can get some good qualied picks in 2015

    Cmon Scott, safety in the 3rd and rb in the 4th? Nate Orchard will be there in the 3rd and best available Gaurd in the 4th. If we have to take a LB he should be a good one.
    I’m not saying your pick isn’t good, what I’m saying is draft a game changer. Perryman or Hendricks come to mind. I think we can just run with the RB we already have. Our safeties should be okay for a season. Just too many holes to fill with just so many picks. Pretty tough situation to be in when you need so many O Linemen. I’ll feel so much better if Dan Connley is signed.
    GO BUCS

      Couldn’t include every possibility in a mock, but there is a pass rushing DE in the Bucs future somewhere. They are going to go after DE George Johnson in FA or look for Za’Darius Smith/KTY, 6-4, 274, 4.73 in the 3rd round or both. I also think Doug Martin is traded either before or during the draft and not for Adrian Peterson as has been rumored. So there is another 4th or 5th round pick that is likely. If so, DE Lynden Trail becomes a possibility. Bottom line DE help is on the way!

      Sorry folks, my bad! In my haste to get a mauling LOT, I had to use my 2nd and 3rd we got for Glennon (pretty sure that happens)to trade back into the 1st. The Bucs like this guy and he’s worth it. Just not buying Dotson at LOT. So goodbye P.J. Williams. Would’ve been nice despite DUI. That’s why they’re called mocks, they’re not real! lol.

    No matter who our coach whenever we play Tandy he comes up with a pick. Problem is, none of our coaches keep him in the line up. See the same with Russell Sheppard, always produces when given a chance,but rarely gets chances. Like Mac’s draft much better. We need O linemen more then safties,LB’s, and RB’s.

    Keep in mind that I’m not trying to put together a mock draft that is going to get the most applause from Bucs fans. Based on my research, inside scoop and analysis I’m trying to predict the players Tampa Bay will draft in which rounds. Fans weren’t necessarily thrilled that Charles Sims was drafted in the third round last year over a guard, but it happened. I’m trying to be realistic with this mock draft – not appease the masses. I too want to see the Bucs draft a pass rusher higher and for them to draft a guard. It didn’t happen that way in this mock, though, and it might not happen with the Bucs on draft day. We’ll see.

      Aside from your 1st round pick of course I think this is a great mock draft and is far better than the last one you did. Every pick makes sense given what will probably be available and given that the actual draft always has some shockers in it. Great job SR! On a side note, I figured most people wouldn’t like this mock but I like the post made explaining what you’re trying to do here.

        Lol what is your problem with JW, a couple of months you were so sure that the Glazers would have nothing to do with JW not that, that is not the case you just talk trash about JW, are you going to root for another team if the Bucs do draft JW? Draft night sure will be fun, can’t wait for your reaction

          I’m actually more convinced now the Glazers won’t let the staff draft Winston than I was a few months ago. When reports came up that sources said they were okay with Winston I was just about to concede, then the combine came and Lovie and the Glazers were singing Winston’s praises from the mountaintops. At first I thought it was secret that had been uncovered, but to openly defend and endorse Winston reeks of a smokescreen. That brought me back to the level of convinced that I was at previously. I become more convinced after the deal with “The Kracken” fell through. I said that if we signed Hardy that would go a long, long way to me believing the Glazers would allow Winston to be a Buc. It didn’t happen so now I’m even more convinced they won’t draft Winston.

            The team didnt pass on Hardy bc of his character, it’s bc he was using us to run up the price in Dallas. Once we found out he had no intentions of coming here we bowed out of the bidding, so again all roads lead to Jameis my dear friend.

            Greg hardy fell through bc drew rosenbag was just using Tampa to drive up the price. Pinkstob, I respect that you want Mariota but I’m sorry, your not always right. What are you gonna say when Winston is tearing it up? Are you gonna retract all that I’ve said? I like Mariota too, but I can see that Winston is most likely the pick. Like it or not. I’ve always respected you, and continue to do so,but I think you have more hate for Winston here than a unbiased fair opinion of both. Would you not take big Ben on your team then? Or Brett favre? Both those guys had character issues. Hell big Ben was accused of sexual assault twice. My point is that he’s 20 yrs old and has plenty of time to get it. You could be right, and if Mariota the pick then he’s the pick,but I don’t think that will be the case.

    hopefully we will sign a competent guard before draft day (connolly/weisneski) that can battle with edwards and omameh for that RG spot, bring back george johnson to battle for a d end spot and go bpa in rounds 2-7…maybe best tackle in round 2, maybe best d end or top safety, but at least have the flexibility to not HAVE to draft for immediate need…and if we are going to trade glennon/martin, please do it before or during draft so that we can use those picks for 2015 roster, not 2016…

    I’ve got to trust Scott on the way he did his mock draft that he knows more than he is willing to put out there. I’m assuming we pick up another veteran OG, DE, back up QB,RB since Glennon and Martin will be gone. I think you shocked a lot of Posters Scott with you picks this time.

    I’m an Arizona State Fan and I think Randal is being projected higher on draft boards cause the safety class is weak, he wasn’t even the best safety on the team (Jordan Simone was) was good yes, but for the NFL? ah, I’m not so sure he gets burned for being out of position way to much for my liking and is a bit undersized, he is a good tackler though. As far as the rest of the mock draft I would rather have Jake Fisher at tackle than TJ Clemmings who is a bit of a project unlike Fisher who is a very good tackle with excellent feet for his size and for lineman its all about the feet and hand placement, TJ was horiible in senior bowl practices where Nate Orchard used him as a turnstyle beating him every single play, no thx pass on Clemmings

    It would be nice to see the Bucs sign Connelly to take some of the extreme need out of the OL before the draft. I’m still rooting for Denzel Perryman in round 2. Winston as the captain of the offense and Perryman as the captain of the D. He’s got that elusive Ray Lewis leadship quality without the nightclub shooting vibe. e

      You know e, your’re one of the reasons I like PR as a website so much. I don’t know if Perryman has the height or speed to cover TEs down field, but any guy that has “that Ray Lewis leadership quality without the nightclub shooting vibe” deserves a second look in my book. Lol.

        I don’t think that the Bucs are sold on Carter running the middle and Lansanah is not a long term starter IMO. I know everyone is looking the numbers on this one, but I’m looking at heart, leadership and intangibles. I’m a ‘Canes fan and I think this kid is going to be Pro Bowl material. Sure there are faster and taller guys, but I’ve never set my draft priorities that way… Ha, Gotta keep the vibe light, Mac… After all, Pink is going really be swinging the pick axe at everything Winston does if the Bucs do indeed draft him! e

          e- I like Perryman too he is a tackling machine but I think the Bucs feel differently than you do about the lb corps as they seem to love Lansanah and I like him too, Carter was signed to play Middle so Perryman is just not a need at this point esp with no o-line or DE, or return guy

      Perryman would be a good choice, if available.

      Per Ray Lewis, I still love that guy, even if he did have some legal issues. He knew how to win and helped the Ravens bring home some trophies. Winning brings a LOT of forgiveness.

      Ogbuehi will be taken in round 2. If he did not get injured at the end of last season, he would be a top 10 pick.

      He would be my pick with the Bucs 2nd round pick. Could even trade down a few spots and still get him. But PLEASE not Clemminings.

    After watching Winston vs Auburn championship game . . . I’m sticking with Glennon! That was total luck that he and Florida St won at all. Then, I have to consider his winning percentage . . . I have to wonder; we know about his ints last year and all his comebacks.

    Folks…why would we get rid of Glennon..that would be stupid! Number one, he’s the only experienced QB on the roster. Two, he has never had a fair start. Three, you always have to have a good backup and what else do we have? Lastly, Whether you pick a QB at number 1 or number 100, it’s not guaranteed they will translate the talent to the NFL…example: Jemarcus Russell/Ryan Leaf and the list goes on!!!!

      Glennon proved last year that he wasn’t any better than having McCown in. We need to trade him while we can still get a pick from somebody else.

      As far as a veteran QB to help out JW / MM, it would be better to just bring someone in who can help be a positive influence in the QB room. (I’m thinking that would exclude Michael Vick. 🙂 )

    I was kinda bummed we never took a look at Schaub when he was released from the Raiders as I figured he still had something to offer- plus would have made the Glennon trade a lil less painful if he is in fact moved on draft day.He ended up going to the Ravens and we seem to be serious about entering next year with Winston and ???…
    This might prove costly as we are going to need a decent BU QB and are looking to trade off the one we have…Does PR have any info or concerns on the matter or am I just being paranoid?

    Typical draft projection for the Bucs. I agree with Winston but nothing else makes sense. How long is it going to take for the Bucs to realize that games are won and lost up front on both sides of the ball. If they overlook the OL and DL again this year then they deserve what they get. PLEASE draft several OL and DL players. Last year they neglected the need for linemen and looked what happened 2-14. Enough already!!!!!!!!That is the need. I agree with a MLB but everything else should be Linemen. It is apparent that FA is not the way to go with this team. The front office proved that last year. Is there anyone that can really evaluate these college prospects. I am so tired of the Bucs sucking at drafting every year. New Coach New GM basically no FA signed not drafting needs equals “Oh no we suck again”.

    buclover1988

    That’s whyy I think we will trade up. We need quality lineman that can contribute immediately. Honestly I think Kadeem Edwards is a sleeper on our ol this year. I think they let him play. We have Dotson, dietrich Smith, then you add Edwards. We need starters, not developmental guys. So trading up back into the first round to grab a blue chip ol without of the question. We have enough amo to trade our 2nd and Martin for a late first rounder just to ensure we get one of the best ol in the draft.

    As usual, while most recognize that drafting the “best player” at each opportunity is the optimum way to build a team; we here in Bucland seem to always focus on perceived “need”. When I read comments like, “take the highest ranked guard” while a much better player at another position is starring Licht in the face, I just cringe. That my friends is, as we all know, a “reach”, and will be the source of a weak roster for years to come. It always strikes me as odd that all experts profess drafting the BPA, but then create a mock draft focused on needs. Here’s what I know, we don’t need a PK, TE or a DT and I don’t see any in this draft who are better than what we already have at those positions. But every other position is a need to some degree, so take the best player. As for trading Glennon. The sale price has to be right since I believe he would be an adequate back-up. Same with Martin unless the team feels his skills do not match what it wants at the RB position. I really like WR/RS Crowder who seems like a good candidate for slot receiver.

    Scudog, there are a lot of good ol in this draft to be had and trading up to get the best ones and waiting to draft need are two completely separate things. Rbs are a dime a dozen and ppl teams continue to trade for them so why not use that in our advantage. I’m fine with keeping glennon but I’ll take a ol that can step in right away over q Doug Martin who has shown signs of wearing down. He was Boise state’s work horse and shiano ran the hell out of him his rookie yr. I don’t see him here in 2-5 yrs so why not get something for him and replace him with a lineman that we can lean on for 10 yrs? I am for taking bpa but our ol needs a boost of talent.

    I agree with your perspective, but so hope that Lovie and Licht don’t go this route. If this happens to be our draft we might as well start looking at next yrs potential top 5 picks because we will be right back at the top of yet another draft. Some how I feel that you could throw darts at a big board and get better results then we’ve gotten the past few yrs. Lovie needs to stop trying to make this Chicago South and going to get his old players they weren’t any good before what’s going to change that? Warm weather? LOL. Surprised we haven’t sign Briggs and traded for Cutler yet. LOL. and why haven’t we filled any more of these glaring needs in FA? It’s pretty sad that you could form a team out of the remaining FA’s and they would be better then what we currently have. I don’t agree with trading Glennon, he is decent and should’ve played over MCCown last yr and we need a back up,when we get a rookie QB, but we should move Martin he is no where near the first round pick we wasted on him and Rainey out produces him and fits our system better. Don’t think there is a safety worth a draft pick we have far more pressing needs. We can grab a few S/CB/WR after the draft and not waste a pick on one.

    1st round take JW or MM whomever they feel better with on and off the field.
    2nd round take Preston Smith/Owamagbe Odighizuwa/ Nate Orchard get a DE or trade back to get more and fill those needs.
    3rd round get OL help DJ Humphries OT/Tre Jackson G/Ty Sambrailo OT/Cedric Ogbuehi OT/Laken Tomlinson G/Ereck Flowers OT
    4th round get More Line help either D or OL Anyone who hasn’t been pick from round 3. Or go and get Jake Ryan OLB that dudes a beast, next Clay Mathews but can cover. TJ Yeldon RB
    5th round either line help Joey Mbu is a solid DT, Rob Haverstien OT/ Josue Matias G/ Ellis McCarthy DT/ Austin Shepherd OT
    6th round Adam Shead G/ Quandre Diggs CB/ Shaquille Riddick DE/ Tony Washington OLB/ Kurtis Drummond S/ Ryan Russell DE
    7th round anyone who is still available from above or Bobby Hart G/ Tyrus Thompson OT/ Karlos Williams RB

    I think the Bucs will actually add at least one extra pick to this year’s draft class.

    If it were up to me, this is how I would love for our draft to play out. Some of these players may not be available, but for the most part they are at least in play at these spots or close enough to make a reasonably affordable trade up to grab.

    1) Jameis Winston, QB, FSU – Mariota may have the higher upside with his athleticism and I would not be upset if they took him, as long as they get a QB at 1, but I think JW has the higher floor and will make the biggest immediate in the near future and if he stays out of trouble could be a top 5 QB in the NFL at the peak of his career.

    2) Kyle Fisher, OT, Oregon – I would love for DJ Humphries to be here, but I think Fischer is the more realistic expectation. At this pick, I think he gives up the best chance at a starting LT, but could make for a really nice RT if we keep Dotson on the left side (which I am personally against). Overall, he is versatile and has great athleticism. Plus, if the bucs do wind up taking Mariota, then this pick makes even more sense.

    3) Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon – Believe it or not, I’m not an Oregon fan, it just seems they are offering the best values at the bucs needs and picks. Ekpre-Olomu would immediately provide a big upgrade over Leonard Johnson and probably even Sterling Moore. He has the ideal size physical play style to play nickel corner in the bucs system. Verner and Banks are solid on the outside, but it seemed like once or twice a game, Johnson or one of our other bum nickels were left in the dust on a go route for a touchdown, or were missing tackles and just playing awful. This pick would help alleviate this problem and he could potentially turn out to be a high quality outside starter as well in the next couple years. He’d be a likely first rounder if not for his injury, so I think you have to take him if he is still here.

    4) David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa – The only reason Johnson will be available here is because a deep RB class and mainly the fact that he went to a smaller school, otherwise he would be gone in the second round. He looked very good in the Senior bowl showing he can hold up against higher level competition, helping confirm what a great season he turned in suggested. He would provide a great power back to compliment our current RBs and most importantly, would give the Bucs a solid return man. A good bruiser and a reliable return man in the fourth round is a great value.

    5) Jamil Douglas, G, Arizona State – If Douglas is still here, I think he gives the bucs their best option at mid day 3 guard who could still come in and start as a rookie. If Ekpre-Olomu is gone in the third I would say to go for a guy like Jose Matias, but if not, Douglas is the next best spot to grab a guard. He is better against the pass than the run, but with some good coaching, he could be a reliable guard for years to come.

    5) Za’Darius Smith, DE, UK – Smith is a solid athlete and looked really good in the Shrine game. He would give the bucs a DE who can seal the edge and keep the run game in check, a huge area of weakness last year. With some development I think he could also be a very effective pass rusher given his measurables and the fact that UK is far better at developing NBA players than NFL. A steal in the fifth if he is still around.

    6) Max Garcia, C, Florida – He is a versatile player that played all along the line in college. He could provide a solid backup at center or guard, which the Bucs clearly lacked last year.

    7) Kyle Loomis, P, Portland State – In the 7th round, you are really looking at roster bubble and practice squad players, so why not take a stab at the top punter available and see if we can’t get a much cheaper (and possible more effective) option than Koenen who is not worth the money.

    I took another look at Jeremy Langford youtubes, and came to see something about him – his acceleration. In fact, a name kept popping up in comparision – Terrell Davis!

      Not to sure Langford will be there in the 4th round . . . I count about 12 pretty good hbs.

      I’d definitely be happy if we ended up with these picks. The only thing I might change is going for one of the top guards in the third, but Orchard is a beast.

      Matias goes in round 3 or 4. Smith goes in round 5.

    Is UCLA Kendricks at MLB in the 2nd round no longer a consideration. I think he as the Butkus winner is something the Bucs need at MLB. Then again he may not even be there at 34.
