      My Official Bucs 7 Round Mock reflects my thought that the Bucs can get four valuable pieces on Day 2 by trading out of Round 1.

      ***Trade***: Bucs trade 1st #32 and 4th #137 to Dallas for 2nd Round #44 and 3rd Round #75.

      Rd 2 #44 Creed Humphrey C OK. Leadership and intelligence are qualities the Bucs want in their first pick of the draft. From PFN: …. is a wide-bodied interior blocker that has a wealth of experience along the interior. With 37 career starts (36 straight), he’s been a three-year starter that’s been a key cog of one of the most explosive offenses in the country. As a left-handed center, he’s one of the few in the country. While being a limited athlete, he has the smarts of knowing how to use his frame, strength, and football IQ to his advantage.
      Alternate: Dillon Radunz could play G or T and would be more worth the risk if he falls to 44, but not 32 IMO. A 1st rounder should be battle tested with the big boys.

      Rd 2 #64 Carlos Basham Edge, Wake Forest. We need solid future starters, not boom or bust players. Basham may not be a future JPP, but he’ll be a solid starter which PR describes as and that’s all you can ask for in Round 2.

      Alternate: Joe Tryon. PR likes him at 32, he could be a good pick at 44 in my trade down scenario if he slides that far. But if the Bucs are patient, they’ll get good value here at 64 with this deep Edge group.

      Rd 3 #75 Dyami Brown Wide Receiver, NC. The Bucs need to prepare for the possibility of Godwin heading to greener pastures (the kind of green with pictures of Presidents). From PFN: Brown is a terrific athlete and vertical route-runner that excels at getting deep where his burst to the football and ball skills led to big plays down the field. Because he’s such a good vertical receiver, it opens up a world of possibilities for him to snap off routes and get open in the intermediate areas of the field. Brown is an elite competitor who battles as a ball carrier, gives great effort as a blocker, and is fearless working the middle of the field. Sound like any other WR you know of (but about $20 mil cheaper)?

      Alternate: Amon Ra St. Brown could be had a tick later because he’s a bit slower.

      Rd 3 #95 Hamsah Nasirildeen, Safety FSU. Pitts is coming to the NFC South. Get ready, Bucs. If Atlanta drafts Kyle Pitts, the Bucs need to defend against him. How about a 6’4” safety? From PFN: Nasirildeen’s blend of size, physicality, athleticism, and downhill trigger jump off the screen when watching the Seminoles defense. A versatile defender, Nasilideen forecasts best as a positionless sub-package defender in the NFL. He can serve the role of tight end neutralizer…

      Alternate: Tyree Gillespie another safety who held his own against Pitts.

      Rd 5 #176 Kene Nwangu RB/ST, Iowa State. Don’t try to get cute with this speedy big play guy/returner. He won’t last until late Round 6 so you have to reach a little. It will be tough for late round guys to make this team, but we have a spot for a returner.

      Rd 6 #217 Monty Rice, LB GA. Not trying to swing for the fences in the 6th, just a bunt single here. Rice is an undersized career backup ILB and special teamer.

      Rd 7 #251 Zach Davidson TE/P, Central Missouri. PFF: He has good long speed and an outstanding catch radius. He also has second positional value as a punter. Practice Squad.

      Rd 7 #259 Rachad Wildgoose Jr. CB, Wis. Not a well known commodity, but I like that he went to Wisconsin where they got Cichy in the 6th.

      Not bad at all.

      I like the idea of trading down and picking up a WR and DB. I feel like the Bucs need to come away from this draft with a WR and DB for special teams and depth. The return specialist is the icing on the cake along with the LB specialist.

      Build the trenches!

      I think we can wait a round or two and get Anthony Schwartz from Auburn who has sub 4.3 speed…we upgrade our PR/KR ability and we add another speed demon to the rotation in case we lose not only CG but Scooter
      I also am a lot higher on Meinerz in the second and Jason loves his D2 talent

      I like Meinertz, but he’s getting so much publicity now that I think he may be too overrated by the fans anyway. You still have to factor in that he was from a small school and has a lot to learn compared to Creed who has been in the trenches for a major college team.

        Fortunately, all of our starting positions are taken and Meinertz can be brought along slowly or essentially red-shirt this year to prepare for next year because Jensen’s contract ends after this season.

        One trait I do like about Meinertz is that he used to wrestle, which means he’s developed great core strength and bend. I like players who have other talents that are able to stack them together. I remember Quenton Nelson being involved in martial arts, which brought a lot of discipline and great attention to detail.

        I really don’t care about school levels, but more about their talent and athleticism. Cappa (D-II) is nowhere near as talented as Marpet (D-III) and the difference between them is stark as Marpet was an above average starter in his rookie season and Cappa took three years to become average, where he had to red-shirt his first year despite the position being open.

        Creed is a safe pick, but it’s possible that Meinertz could be better. This could be like last year where OT Wills had the technique down in college, but Wirfs was the better athlete that needed some coaching up.

        I may be wrong by I believe Creed also has a wrestling background. I’d love to take either Dickerson or Creed and the best EDGE available. After that it’s all quality depth that can turn to starters in a couple years

      Go get Creed and then draft defensive line and safety. Even a linebacker.

      Hockey, I’m not against the small school picks, but that’s a little early for that IMO. Marpet was the 61st pick, so that’s about as high as I’d go with the small school poick.

      I didn’t use the word “stop”. I said “defend”. There’s no reason not to beef up the ability to guard a player who Look at how the Bucs have been destroyed by guys like Julio Jones and Michael Thomas or Christian McCaffrey have done to the Bucs in the past when we weren’t ready for them.

      Pitts projects to be a weapon of that caliber, and he’s probably going to be in our division for the next decade. From NFL Network “His ability as a pass-catching tight end could force defenses in his division to alter the way they construct their roster….” Well, why wait for him to steamroll us a couple times. The millisecond Atlanta picks Pitts that should be the cue for the Bucs to beef up their ability to cover him.

      Sweet. If that’s how were defining it, Sabby Piscitelli “defended” a shit load of guys in his day too, then.

      Not sure what your point is, Biggs.

      Not bad, but you gotta get Tyson Campbell in there if you are trading down.

      The very clear and simple point is Hamsah Nasirildeen won’t be able to “defend” Kyle Pitts very well. To be fair, most defenders will have problems. But drafting a R3 safety for that purpose probably won’t turn out very well.

      What would you suggest, Biggs? It won’t be up to one guy to go mano a mano with Pitts, but nevertheless it would be better to plan ahead. What would you have the Bucs do?

      As for the Antonio Brown signing, I may have to revise my Round 3. I was under the assumption that they were waiting for the draft before they make any decision on Brown, but now I’m not sure they will be drafting a WR on day 2.

      I feel justified in altering my mock draft after AB was signed. I do not believe the Bucs will use a high draft pick on a WR with AB on board.

      So I’ll substitute Tommy Tremble TE, ND for Dayami Brown in the 3rd Round. The Bucs may not have room for another WR, but they do have room for another TE. With the uncertainty surrounding that position in 2022 and beyond, the Bucs will not be shy about picking up a TE on Day 2.

      i still dont agree with the idea of a high round tight end over positions like defensive line. We have 3 solid guys in which this pick wont see the field.

      I like you have interior oline and edge in first 2 rounds but with Suh and Gholston being free agents next year and aging; and with Vita’s injury last year; need to build up depth here.

      I have been thinking trading up would be best in order to get a quality player who can contribute somewhat next year, but I love this trading down scenario. This was a well thought out mock draft.
