    For consolidation, I don’t think we need explanations at this point

    14 – Wills
    45 – Helaire
    Trade 76 & 117 for 62 – Winfield
    139 – Gibson
    161 – Morgan
    198 – Markus Bailey

    Just not enough picks to squeeze a DL in there but I’d wouldn’t kick my dog after a draft like this.

    How does anyone give this a thumbs down ??!!
    This would be my actual preference of our first 4 picks. I also like Gibson at 4.
    This would be an A+ draft!!
    The best OT, one of 3 best options at RB Dobbins /Akers) , and a guy I think is right there as the best Safety in draft. Then a weapon to move around in multitudes of ways to get in space.

    Swap out any of the tackles at 14, but to get CEH at 45, and package our 3 and 4 to get back into the late second to get Winfield would be stellar! And it’s realistic. The value chart lines up, and CEH should be there at 45, and Winfield very well could be there at 60-64. Of course it takes two to tango but I’d make sure I came to the party with my dancing shoes on.

    With the addition of Brady and resigning top defensive players the Buccaneers are set to draft BPA in the upcoming draft. Sitting nice at 14 one of the top 4 tackles could fall due to surging QBs and WRs.

    14th. Andrew Thomas Georgia: 6’5 320 mean run blocker setting up another 1st day pick D’Andre Swift for big runs. Agile big man with nfl ready pass blocking talent. Adding Thomas will bring plus run blocking to the offensive line early on at RT.

    45th. Isaiah Wilson Georgia: another massive linemen from the Bulldogs standing at 6’6 350 Wilson also paved the way for Swift. Big mover in the run game and a mean streak to finish plays.

    Perfect situation for Wilson with Joe Haeg serving as veteran leadership and Thomas starting at RT eventually replacing D.Smith allowing Wilson a good year of seasoning before sliding in at RT.

    76th. Clyde Edwards-Helaire LSU: With the usual run on offensive linemen late 1st early 2nd round Tampa had to grab Wilson early to solidify the unit up front.
    Clyde is a RB coming in 3rd down ready and set to spilt time with Jones on early downs. Showing elite vision along with above average one cut ability Clyde is the ideal fit for Tampa.

    This late in the draft safety is not really an option. Current starters Edwards and Whitehead are better than anyone available at this point. With that being said focus should be WR or Pass Rush and with two 4th round picks two positions can be filled.

    117th. Bradlee Anae Utah: 6’3 257 Anae is a pass rush specialist with limitation against the run. With 13 sacks to end the year there is a good chance he could be gone before this pick. Looking back Licht has shown a tendency to trade up using late round picks in the 3rd and 4th round.

    139th. Donovan Peoples-Jones Michigan: 6’2 208 big WR could be another Godwin type WR in the pros. He might drop due to inconsistent hands and lack of production at Michigan. Although he will suffer from drops early in his career that won’t stop him from starting his rookie year in the slot.

    161st. Kevin Davidson Princeton: 6’4 224 smart QB can study under Brady.

    194th. J.J Taylor Arizona: Small back with Vision and toughness.

    Not bad… but, I wouldn’t double dip on the line. How about:

    1) Cassion
    2) Wilson
    3) Antonio Gibson
    4) Anthony Gordon
    4) james Proche
    5) darryton Evans
    6) Tyler Clark

    I’d very good with that draft @kingtampa. Think I’d go a different route instead of Gordon but that’s just me.

    I’ve done my PGA trade up mock. So without giving up on that idea I’ll throw down my PGA trade down version and take credit for whichever one turns out to be better.

    The Bucs trade 14 and 194 (6th Rd) to Vegas for 19, 80 (3rd) and 179 (5th). Then trade back up in the 2nd with Cin pick 33 (2nd) and pick 107 (4th) for pick 45(2nd) and pick 80 (3rd).

    TRADE DOWN PGA MOCK
    1st round 19th overall (from Vegas) Josh Jones OT Hou
    Maybe a little early for Jones, but Licht likes to get his man.

    2nd Round 33rd overall (from Cin) Ross Blacklock IDL TCU
    Compared to McCoy

    3rd Round 76th overall Nick Harris C/G Wash
    Versatility to play G and C is important.

    4th Round 107 overall (from Cin) Zach Moss RB Utah
    Fun pick. 1st pick of Day 3 you get to sort through the sliders.

    4th Round 117 overall K’Von Wallace S Clemson
    4th Round 139 overall (comp) KJ Hill WR Ohio St.
    5th Round 159 overall (from Vegas) Logan Wilson LB Wyoming
    5th Round 161 overall Alex Highsmith LB Charlotte

    So we have solidified O-line, strengthened all levels of the defense and special teams, and still managed to find time to add a RB who can block and catch and WR to play the slot. Eventual replacements for Suh and Jensen. Most importantly protect the GOAT. How can you beat this?

    Figured I’d take a stab at this because what else is there to do these days. Jason Licht would be forgiven for everything if he had this haul.

    14 – Jedrick Wills -OT-Alabama

    45 – D’Andre Swift -RB – Georgia (or sub in CEH to be more realistic)

    76 – Julian Okwara -EDGE – Notre Dame (rotational pass rusher, replaces JPP eventually)

    117 – Lynn Bowden – WR – Kentucky (Gadget player Brady likes)

    139 – Geno Stone – S – Iowa (Underrated prospect I think Bowles would love)

    161 – Jake Luton – QB – Oregon State (His film is fun to watch)

    194 – James Lynch – IDL – Baylor (depth – very productive in college)

    I like this mock draft more than any of the others I have seen. ( I think Brady would be all in favor of this mock draft). It firmly addresses the most dire need of the Bucs early. The need for massive offensive linemen and a running back who is good at catching the ball out of the backfield. After the first 3 rounds, the Bucs just need to fill out the roster with depth.

    @KY – Edwards-Helaire won’t be there in the middle of the 3rd. Also, you only drafted one defensive player. I know its an offensive minded draft, but you are going to have to use a couple of those mid to late picks to help out the defensive depth, not to draft a longshot QB.



    @Live4Bucs
    , is Stone underrated? Does he have the athleticism the Bucs want? The Bucs aren’t going to forget about their need for athleticism on defense.

    From Crabbe on Draft Network: – Geno Stone projects as a ST contributor at the pro level with only modest upside utilized into a regular defensive backfield rotation. Stone’s lack of burst, length and dynamic range of motion in space project a unique set of barriers that will be difficult to overcome — despite his competitive toughness, dense frame and football intelligence. He’ll need a very specific set of circumstances to lock himself into a long-term role. That said, his toughness and tackling can help on kick coverages.

    @roy He always seems to be around the ball and making plays so i don’t know if it’s instincts or IQ that make up for the lack of athleticism but Crabbs breakdown doesn’t scare me away from him I think he could do well in Bowles system.

    I actually saw Havok post this breakdown of him from PFF in another thread after I posted this mock:

    @Roy if Clyde isn’t there I wouldn’t mind BPA and going defense but the last couple years have been defense heavy. Just doubt they add anymore DBs to an already young room. Double dipping with the two Georgia kids will have immediate and future impact.

    I agree that offense will be the priority but they did a lot of interviews of lower tier linebackers at the combine. I think they are going to use the latter part of the draft to get some fast and athletic depth/special teams guys such as linebackers or perhaps even a CB. Thats just my guess.

    Posters are focusing on plugging the holes in the starting lineup, and rightfully so. But what they are forgetting about is that the depth at just about every position is lacking. And a year from now they are expanding rosters and going to 17 games. These later rounds are going to provide some young guys who can bring energy and athleticism.

    Guys like that should be available after the draft. Resigning Ryan Smith making him the 4th corner is good veteran depth right where he should be. I always thought the team had good depth who happen to get forced into starting roles guys like Ryan Smith.

    The double dip Georgia guys, CEH, Anae DPJ is the best but probably not realistic.
    My question is as someone else asked WHAT do we do if the 4 are gone? I’m 10000% trade back. You have to have a partner to do so.
    I had one rule ( never ever draft a TE in rd 1,2) now I’ve added anytime sitting outside the UNANIMOUS can’t miss guys. If it stops at 12-15, you trade back and get as many 2’s n 3’s as possible. The grades on the rest of the 1-2 are all debatable.
    Now if nobody wants to move up with us, who’s the pick? Everyone on here is assuming we can trade back or Thomas is available. Except one, who said we reach on Jones. You guys agree? Is it over reach on Jones or do we take BPA?
    I get that reasoning. However I’ll only curse the worst GM in the NFL that much more for putting us in that situation.
    There’s no guarantee he supplants Haeg. What if he struggles in preseason and Haeg is our RT? We passed on Ruggs? Kinlaw? When we could have grabbed Wilson in rd 2?
    Still loaded up Brady with the best trio in NFL plus a RB in rd 3?
