It is NFL Draft season and the mock drafts from the NFL experts and pundits are being published nearly every day and making their picks for the Bucs. Every Monday until the 2019 NFL Draft in April, PewterReport.com 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 

PewterReport.com Scott Reynolds
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Kentucky OLB Josh Allen
“The selection of Allen gives the Buccaneers another top-notch edge rusher and some continuity at the all-important position of weakside linebacker in Bowles’ defense. While Tampa Bay could benefit from trading down a few spots and stockpiling picks while selecting a player like Sweat or White, Allen is an elite player with the production and work ethic that makes him a legitimate top 5 pick in this year’s NFL Draft. He’s simply too good to pass up for the Bucs, who get a premier pass rusher that can rack up sacks and force fumbles.” Scott Reynolds

Bucs’ Second Round Pick: Kansas State RT Dalton Risner
Bucs’ Third Round Pick: Memphis RB Darrell Henderson
Bucs’ Fourth Round Pick: Central Michigan CB Sean Bunting
Bucs’ Fifth Round Pick: UCF DT Trysten Hill
Bucs’ Sixth Round Pick: TCU ILB Ty Summers
Bucs’ Seventh Round Pick: Georgia DE Jonathan Ledbetter

CBSSports.com – Ryan Wilson
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Alabama DT Quinnen Williams
“Williams is a monster. He dominated just about every snap during the 2018 season and he came to the combine and dominated there too. He blazed a 4.83 40-yard dash, which only confirms what we already knew: His physical abilities are off the charts, and he’s not only a legit top-5 talent, he has an argument as the top-overall pick. Yes, the Buccaneers drafted Vita Vea a year ago but Gerald McCoy is 31 years old and will count roughly $13 million against the cap in each of the next three years.” Ryan Wilson

CBSSports.com – Chris Trapasso
Bucs’ First Round Pick: LSU LB Devin White
“With Kwon Alexander gone, the Buccaneers have to get more athletic in their linebacker group. With White, they get a supremely gifted athlete.” – Chris Trapasso

Bucs’ Second Round Pick: Florida S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson
“After the 2017 season there were questions about Gardner-Johnson’s tackling ability but he proved he’s more than capable in ’18, and his coverage ability makes him an attractive option for the Buccaneers.” Ryan Wilson

TheDraftNetwork.com Benjamin Solak
Bucs’ First Round Pick: LSU LB Devin White
“This is one of the early fits that we like the most; a pick that feels made regardless of the action before it. I still think the Bucs and Todd Bowles would love to take a swing at Josh Allen if he falls, but as it is, White is the easy prediction.

I won’t have a first-round grade on White — or any linebacker for that matter — due to some serious processing and body control concerns. But he does remind me of a young Kwon Alexander, and could enjoy a similar career arc — so the plug and replace role in Tampa makes sense.” Benjamin Solak

SBNation.com – Dan Kadar
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Alabama DT Quinnen Williams

“Although Williams doesn’t address Tampa Bay’s key offseason needs, his value as a prospect is too great to pass up at No. 5. With Vita Vea, last year’s first-round pick, Williams could be lined up inside and outside for the Buccaneers.” – Dan Kadar

Buccaneers.com – Carmen Vitali and Scott Smith
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat
“The Bucs lost Kwon Alexander in free agency (unfortunate, but not surprising) and also added Deone Bucannon (very good, but not terribly surprising, either). Where does that leave them in terms of filling out a linebacking corps that has some other question marks, like Jack Cichy’s knee and Kendell Beckwith’s ankle? I’d say in a pretty uncertain position. So this pick should be LSU’s Devin White, right? I wouldn’t hate it. But I still feel it’s imperative for the Buccaneers to make use of their good position in a draft that is top-heavy in potentially awesome edge rushers. In the long run, I think they can find linebackers more easily than a guy like Sweat, who I’ve secretly been itching to pick for the Bucs for a while now.” – Scott Smith

NewYorkPost.com – Steve Serby
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Kentucky OLB Josh Allen
“The elite pass rusher defensive coordinator Todd Bowles never had with the Jets.” Steve Serby

BleacherReport.com – Joe Tansey
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat

SI.com Kalyn Kahler
Bucs’ First Round Pick: Kentucky OLB Josh Allen
“The Buccaneers are badly in need of some defensive playmakers, especially in the pass rush. Allen improved more than any prospect during the 2018 college football season, and has the ability to step in and make an impact right away for new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. (But one thing to keep in mind: Despite Bruce Arians’s public support for Jameis Winston, one scout told me that if he had to pick a surprise team to take a quarterback in the first round, it would be Tampa Bay.)” Kalyn Kahler

  1. I would be floored if the Bucs draft Josh Allen. That would be a perfect combination of need, value, and BPA.

  2. They may go QB if anybody wants Winston. I don’t think they should, but they should do their homework. They could have some leverage on draft day depending how it plays out. they need to cover as many bases as possible as quick as possible. This team has to many holes, changing QB could help fill more holes if luck & prep. meet.

  3. I’m torn…if Allen or Williams are on the board should we take them? Or would we be better off trading down, getting a guy like White or Sweat and an additional 2nd or 3rd round pick? It’s almost a can’t lose situation we find ourselves in

  4. Poopes. I think if one of the big 3 (Bosa, Williams, allen) fall to us we have to take them. If it’s willians then we need to attempt to trade McCoy. Get a third for him. We don’t need 3 starting DTs in a 3-4 defense. If not I really like White. There are only a couple teams I think would trade with us. (Denver, Miami, redskins). Those are picks 10,13, and 16. I don’t see white falling that far. Sweat might fall to 10 but not past. So if you want sweat or white we would have to stay put at 5. There is always Devin bush we could grab around 13-15. Trading to 13-15 is Gonna cost a 2nd and a 3rd or 4th.

  7. I would be happy to take Ed Oliver at 5. I don’t really see us being able to trade down at all without losing too many can’t miss picks. I think Oliver would be a force to rotate and be mentored while McCoy is still on the roster. Then on to the future, Oliver and Vea would be our cornerstones. I really like D.White but at 5 its gotta be Oliver. Maybe the Bucs get crazy and trade back up to the Mid 1st round and try to grab D.Bush as he may be available to address the LB position, probably not worth it.
    However based on the prospects I have been looking at I think they could get a speed LBs like David Long WV, Gary Johnson Texas, Robert Okereke Stanford. Another guy I like to be converted to a LB at the next level is Sutton Smith NIU, he has ILB size, quickness, instincts and production. These guys could be available at the 3-5rds.
    Its gonna be fun.
