Every Monday until the 2019 NFL Draft in April, will scour the Internet to find the list of players that are projected to Tampa Bay and put out the list with the links.

NEW MOCKS THIS WEEK – Trevor Sikkema
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Florida OT Jawaan Taylor
“The Bucs could pick any of Jonah Williams, Jawaan Taylor or Cody Ford here and I think it would be worth it, but the reason I went with Taylor is how good he is in pass protection.” – Trevor Sikkema – Will Brinson
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Alabama LT Jonah Williams
“The Bucs are all in on Jameis Winston and while they still need defensive help, they could also use some protection for Winston if they don’t manage to bring back Donovan Smith.” – Will Brinson – Chad Reuter
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Alabama RB Josh Jacobs
“I expect the Bucs to move down from this spot, eventually picking Bruce Arians’ new David Johnson.” – Chad Reuter
Bucs’ Second Round Pick – Clemson LB Tre Lamar
Bucs’ Third Round Pick – Alabama State T Tytus Howard – Matt Miller
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Houston DT Ed Oliver
“There has been recent talk from scouts that Oliver doesn’t have the ideal size to play as an interior pass-rusher, but his quickness and elite athleticism make him a mismatch against guards and centers. He’s also shown the flexibility to bump outside and play defensive end.” – Matt Miller – Vinny Iyer
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Florida OT Jawaan Taylor
“Taylor (6-5, 334) offers great agility, smarts and techinique to handle the most athletic edge rushers well. He has been rising up boards as scouts have seen that he’s not just relegated to right tackle.” – Vinnie Iyer

ProFootballFocus – Mike Renner
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Clemson Edge Clelin Ferrell
“The offseason prescription for the Bucs calls for defense, defense and more defense. Any position will do. Ferrell has the size and traits teams covet on the edge in the top 10.” – Mike Renner

Bucs’ First Round Pick: LSU ILB Devin White
Bucs’ Second Round Pick (From Jacksonville): Boston College DE Zach Allen
Bucs’ Second Round Pick: Boston College G Chris Lindstrom

Just as long as we move down in the first and get an OT I am not picky as to which one we get as long as they can stop sacks and pressures and Taylor meets that requirement. He was a RT at FL and that is why my best choice would be Mississippi’s LT at 6’5” 325 lbs. who is long and athletic and an excellent pass blocker too. Love the other PR picks for 2d round on down. We need Lindstrom and a pass rusher and Saunders too. PR also needs to look at Iman Marshall CB 6’1”… Read more »

OTs always rise as the draft nears and mock drafts reflect this upward trend.

I would not be shocked to see the Bucs selecting an OT in the first three rounds even if D. Smith is tagged/resigned.

As a Gator fan it’s hard for me to see a OT from the Gators being good enough to be an NFL starter, much less a top 5 pick.

Taylor has plenty of atlehtic ability, but I’m concerned with selecting a slightly above average college RT with a top 5 pick.

I’ve gone back and watched more tape on Taylor so I could focus on him. He not as dominating as I’d thought he’d be considering his first round grade. Good in pass pro and ok as a run blocker.
