As college pro days continue to go on all over the country, the Bucs have made their presence known. According to a report from Tom Pelissero, the Bucs had defensive coordinator Todd Bowles at Kentucky’s pro day, presumably to see edge rusher Josh Allen.

Allen had an exceptional senior year at Kentucky notching 17 sacks, five forced fumbles, 21 tackles for a loss, and 56 tackles in 13 games. He also helped lead the Wildcats to a Citrus Bowl victory over Penn Sate.

Those numbers by Allen propelled him to become a top three prospect taken off the board in the draft. While that would normally be the case, team’s that are in need of quarterback tend to overpay to trade up and draft one as the draft gets closer.

With that a possibility given team’s interest in Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins, the Bucs could be in play for Allen at the five pick. The fact that Bowles – the team’s own defensive coordinator – was there in person, signifies the Bucs potential interest in the linebacker.

Allen made his way to the top of our most recent team 7-Round Mock Draft.

Hope Bowles also watched Snell, Jr.’s workout too while there. But glad Bowles is getting close lookout at Defense prospects too.

Josh Allen would look awesome in a Bucs uniform. That guy is going to make a difference in the NFL. I hope he falls to the Bucs and they select him.

Linebackers can be found in later rounds. Te’von Coney and Drue Tranquil from Notre Dame are smart, humble players that have great technique.

He would look good in Pewter and Red. But I think he will be gone unless the QB hysteria creates a situation where he slips down. If two QB’s go before our pick there will be one of the three elite Lineman and I think Bucs would be forced to take one of them.
