The East-West Shrine Game and the Reese’s Senior Bowl have concluded. The NFL Scouting Combine is over and  the 40 times and medical reports have been collected. Now Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht, director of player personnel John Spytek, director of college scouting Mike Biehl, head coach Dirk Koetter and the team’s scouts and assistant coaches are attending pro days and hosting private workouts, and will soon begin hosting NFL Draft prospects at One Buccaneer Place and stacking their draft board.

The Bucs have spent the fall and winter scouting prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft where Tampa Bay has the 7th overall pick due to a 5-11 finish to the regular season. The focus needs to be on bolstering the Bucs’ defense, especially in the secondary, in addition to improving Koetter’s running game on offense.

The Bucs have moved on ineffective running back Doug Martin and won’t re-sign free agent running back Charles Sims, who is too one-dimensional and doesn’t make enough plays. The team believes in Peyton Barber, but needs another running back or two with some explosive running ability.

The offensive line is a concern for many Bucs fans, but offensive tackles Donovan Smith and Demar Dotson are in the top half of the league at their respective positions, and Dotson had one of his best seasons before getting injured in late November. The real issue was in the interior where the guard play was sub-par. That has been aided with the signing of center Ryan Jensen, which moves Ali Marpet back to guard, as PewterReport.com forecasted back in January.

The return of J.R. Sweezy from a back injury was supposed to help Tampa Bay’s struggling ground game and prompted the move of Marpet from right guard to center. Marpet was a better guard in 2016 than he was center in 2017, but now it will be Jensen snapping the ball to Jameis Winston. Marpet may move to left guard to replace Kevin Pamphile, who signed with Tennessee. Evan Smith was re-signed for depth at both center and guard. The  addition of Jensen, who starred in Baltimore, should greatly help the Bucs’ running game.

Tampa Bay’s defense definitely needed help along the defensive line as the team finished dead last in sacks with 22. Noah Spence is coming off his second shoulder surgery in 12 months but can’t be counted on to make the kind of necessary impact the team needs to effectively rush the passer. If he gets five to eight sacks upon his return that should be seen as a bonus.

So Licht addressed defensive end and defensive tackle in free agency with the signing of nose tackle Beau Allen and defensive end Vinny Curry from the Super Bowl champion Eagles squad and versatile defensive lineman Mitch Unrein. The Bucs moved on from defensive tackle Chris Baker and defensive end Robert Ayers as PewterReport.com forecasted back in January. Baker had half a sack despite getting paid $6 million as a free agent signing last year and failing to beat out Clinton McDonald, who will be a free agent in March. The oft-injured Ayers had two sacks last year after posting 6.5 the year before.

But the biggest defensive line news came when Licht traded a third-round pick and swapped fourth-round picks with the New York Giants for defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to help Tampa Bay’s pass rush. Pierre-Paul, who played one year at nearby USF, had 15.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over the past two years.

The Bucs re-signed cornerback Brent Grimes, who turns 35 this year, and reserve safety Keith Tandy this offseason, but still need to address the secondary in the 2018 NFL Draft. Tampa Bay had the league’s worst pass defense in 2017 as neither second-year cornerback Ryan Smith nor Vernon Hargreaves III, who was the team’s first-round pick in 2016, played well. Tampa Bay could also use a strong safety to develop next to free safety Justin Evans, last year’s second-round pick, and compete with Chris Conte.

PewterReport.com offers up its fourth edition of the Bucs’ round-by-round draft projection in 2018, focusing mostly on adding players for Tampa Bay’s defense and players to bolster the team’s running game.

Round 1: Florida State SS Derwin James – 6-3, 215 – 4.47– Junior

Previous pick: Washington DT Vita Vea
Assuming that Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson, North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley are off the board by the time that Tampa Bay is off the clock, the Bucs stay in-state and draft James to bolster their secondary if the team can’t – or chooses not to – trade down to acquire more picks.

Tampa Bay’s defense needed to be overhauled this offseason after ranking last in 2017 in pass defense and in sacks. Bucs general manager Jason Licht revamped the defensive line, cutting Chris Baker and defensive end Robert Ayers, Jr. and finding upgrades in a trade for defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, and signing free agent defensive end Vinny Curry, defensive tackle Beau Allen and versatile defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.

But outside of re-signing starting cornerback Brent Grimes and reserve safety Keith Tandy, improving the secondary was largely ignored in free agency and will need to be addressed in the draft. That’s where James comes in.

The Bucs love James’ athletic traits, length, tackling prowess and leadership ability. He’s the top-rated safety on Tampa Bay’s draft board ahead of Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick, and could very well be the highest-ranked defensive back ahead of Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, who also might garner consideration with the seventh overall pick.

Tampa Bay is looking for a premier strong safety to pair with free safety Justin Evans. Licht has put a lot of resources into trying to make improvements at safety, which shows how important the position is to him. He spent a second-round pick on Evans last year, signed J.J. Wilcox and then upgraded to T.J. Ward, who was paid $3.875 million last year.

James has drawn comparisons to Kansas City’s Eric Berry – although James is bigger – and Seattle Kam Chancellor – although he’s faster and more athletic. The buzz in the NFL scouting community is that James is a Day 1 starter and has the makings of a Pro Bowl safety, and he can affect the defense in many ways.

The Haines City, Fla. native had a sensational freshman season, recording 91 tackles and 9.5 tackles for loss and was a menace to opposing teams’ running games. James is an angry tackler, who shows no fear making hard hits at or near the line of scrimmage. He also showed he could be an effective blitzer, registering 4.5 sacks with two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

James succumbed to a season-ending knee injury during the second game of his sophomore season, logging just 11 tackles and one interception. He bounced back last year and notched 84 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and showed more range in pass coverage, defending 11 passes and having a career-high two interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown.

James’ Florida State Career Defensive Stats
2017: 84 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 11 PBUs, 2 INTs, 1 TD
2016: 11 tackles, 1 INT
2015: 91 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sack, 4 PBUs, 2 FF, 2 FR

One of James’ best qualities his competitiveness and leadership. Jacksonville Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey played with James one year at Florida State and handed off the leadership baton to him when he left after the 2015 season.

“Leadership comes in a lot of different ways,” Ramsey said. “No matter how he does it, he can affect other players around him. He can affect the whole team. He is going to come in, work hard, do his job and lead by example. Guys will follow him just by of just the strength of what he is doing.”

The Bucs have quality leaders on defense with their trio of Pro Bowlers in the front seven – defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and linebackers Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David. What the defense lacks is a leader in the secondary, and that’s the role James can assume.

Tampa Bay plays in the pass-happy NFC South division against Pro Bowl quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton, and needs an every down defender to slow down the aerial assault and make plays. Whether it is breaking up passes, picking off passes or blitzing the quarterback, James is used to being used in many different ways as Florida State’s STAR defender, which is a hybrid linebacker-safety role.

“Derwin is special,” Ramsey told ESPN. “He has a true position as a safety and a lot of NFL teams will look at him as ‘OK, he’s the best safety.’ But not only that, he’s the best whatever you line him up at. That’s not always the case with guys. Yeah, you can line guys up and they can get the job done at those positions, but when you’re truly the best at it … it’s clear that he is the best safety in the country. It’s clear when he’s moving for a blitz package, he is the best at doing that, so really he’s totally different than Jabrill Peppers. So versatile on the defensive end and can change the game.”

Former Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher sees a bright future for James in the NFL and praised his football I.Q.

“He has the physical tools to do it, but he has the intelligence, too,” Fisher told ESPN. “People don’t realize, you have to be able to understand what’s going on around you. Not, let’s line up at the position, but to actually play the position. He understands that. I talk to him a lot about letting your athletic ability be the last thing you rely on.”

James replaces Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea, who was atop the last two PewterReport.com 2018 Bucs’ 7-Round Mock Drafts, but the Bucs haven’t ruled out Vea. Yet the more pressing need in Tampa Bay is at safety, and if James and Vea are about equal on the Bucs’ draft board as I believe they are, the Florida State defensive back will become a Buccaneer.

1- Derwin James S FSU. YES!
2- Nick Chubb. Acceptable but I’d prefer Jaire Alexander CB UL. He’s my #1 CB.
We need a good corner to replace Grimes.
3- Gone.
I’m not feeling any of the picks beyond this point.
4-Dante Pettis WR Washington
5- Royce Freeman RB Oregon
6- DJ Reed CB KSU
7- Kevin Ford RB TAMU

This is a really nice draft!! Taking Chubb in the 2nd may be a reach, but, like you said, he may not last until the third!! Closing out with 2 CBs and the WR are smart depth moves!! This draft has a different feel now that Licht has addressed the most pressing needs!!

The following would be nice:

2nd – Sony Michel…if not available, try to trade down to get an extra pick and draft RB Chubb later in the second round.

Will not get worked up over a mock draft but again not a fan at all. I usually agree with you guys but this year not so much. Chubb is a reach with our 2nd rd pick and we will be leaving better players on the board by making that move. I like Derwin but I would not draft him before Chubb Nelson Barkley or Ward I think all 4 are better talents at more pressing/premium needs. If for some miracle their all gone ( I give it 100% chance that at least 2 will be available when we pick)… Read more »

I’m thinking we need an earlier CB. Not sure who fits the bill but waiting until the 6th round seems crazy when we don’t have a starter alongside Grimes although I do like the depth with doubling up. VH3 might be tried out again on the outside but he will probably be relegated to the slot.

I’d try hard to trade down and get 2 for 1. That way we recoup that 3rd rd loss. And I’d still take another DE with one of our top 2 picks. You can never have enough good pass rushers. I’m not crazy about safeties and CB’s taken high when you got more pressing needs. There is great value for the Defensive secondary in the later rounds. Solidify your trenches!!

No doubt McCoy, Kwon and David are all great players, but believe the jury’s still out on their leadership abilities. Understand that because they’re the foundation of the D, it’s easy to assume they’re quality leaders. But are they? Multiple players, including McCoy himself, have spoken on how there has been a definite lack of holding players accountable for their actions, missed assignments, etc. While that is an indictment on the coaching staff, it also points to a lack of leadership in the locker room as well. Hopefully some of the new blood can assist in getting this rectified. Rate… Read more »

Like the double-dip at RB and think Chubb and Hines would compliment each other well. Would prefer another FA CB was added instead of relying on a 5th or 6th round rookie CB to produce. Assuming the staff has more confidence than me, but if Grimes goes down we’re probably looking at VH3 and Smith as our starters with Elliot at nickel. Scary thought imo. Hoping Smith at least adjusts his concepts to take better advantage of what his DB’s do well.

I’m no judge of personel as I have said many times. I usually just listen to the so called experts who get 50 percent of thier picks right like the GMs. The draft is a crap shoot or how else would guys like Cameron Brate, Richard Shermen and even the great Tom Brady fall so far in the draft or not even get drafted at all. The reason is that no scouts, or GMs can measure the intangibles like heart and desire. The Bucs drafted a great guard No. 1 one year and then it turned out he had the… Read more »

The 2007 draft was a strange one with truly unforeseeable results for the Bucs. I can’t fault the GM, Bruce Allen or the Head Coach, Jon Gruden for what happened. We drafted DE Gaines Adams with the fourth pick of the 1st round. We drafted LG Aaron Sears with the third pick of the 2nd round. They both looked like wonderful picks after their first years in the NFL. Adams was considered a “bust” by fans and media. He was traded to Chicago later and eventually cut. He died of a heart condition at the age of 26. Sears left… Read more »

Round 1 pick 22 from Buffalo – Guard – Wynn or Hernandez; Round 2 pick 38 from Tampa – Running Back – Chubb will be perfect with Barber; Round 2 pick 53 from Buffalo – Safety – Reid, Harrison, Edmonds?

Yes Derwin James is a big physical specimen but he is absolutely no playmaker with only two interceptions all of 2017 and only 11 passes defended and was hurt all but two games in 2016 so there is a clear durability issue with him and there is no way we should waste a 7th pick on James. If the big 3 aren’t available at 7, trade down with Buffalo. Grab G Hernandez at 12 and Penny with the other first pick. Yes our coaching is no good at developing a top CB, but you already have a veteran playmaker, Tandy,… Read more »

Well he blew his knee out that year and hasn’t missed a game outside of that so not sure exactly what durability “issues” you’re talking about. As for ball skills, those stats are good for a safety. If you’re going strictly on college ball skills, I guess Jalen Ramsey wouldn’t have gotten drafted at all.

I would feel bad about missing Vea but James is a decent pick. Drafting 2 RB’s in a row is a disaster – especially those 2. You should be trading down in the 1st and 2nd if you are drafting those players. Otherwise this is terrible. Jones in the 5th is great but a pipe dream. He is a straight up gangster and going much earlier than that. Jones in the 4th and Justin Jackson in the 5th with Michel NOT Chubb in the 2nd and it isnt nearly so terrible.

Rd 1 – If B Chubb and Nelson are gone, I’d be ok with James, Ward, or trading back Rd 2 – Chubb seems like a bit of a reach here, Michel or Guice should be our target. If they’re gone we can trade back to make up for the 3rd we traded away. After the first 2 rounds it’s a BPA draft imo. I don’t think doubling up on RB is a good idea when our secondary needs so much help though. Waiting till the 5th seems too late to address the position to me. We’ve set ourselves up… Read more »

It all comes down to how many Q.B.’s are drafted ahead of us. If four go, one of the big three falls to us, and fills a need. If only three are taken, it’s a given Barkley, Chubb, Nelson are gone. It’s easy to say trade down if that happens, but someone has to be willing to want our spot. We do need to draft two R.B.’s, say what you want about fantasy football not being real, but if you don’t have a good stable of backs you’re screwed. We’d be gambling on two late round D.B.’s, they might have… Read more »

Denver, QB 6. Indy, Chubb, Barkley or Nelson 7. TB 8. Chicago, [Trubisky] 9. San Francisco [Garoppolo] 10. Oakland, [Carr] 11. Miami, [Tannehill] 12.

P.S. Looks like we will have to choose between the best available CB, RB or G in the second round because we no longer have a pick in the third. Let’s hope that Licht is able to find more help in the remaining time before the draft among possible released players, free agents and/or trades.

I would change the first pick to Denzel Ward, CB Ohio State. Ward is a game changer with speed to burn, great instincts and ball skills. We need someone with this speed in our secondary and as much as we need a strong safety type, a CB is just as big a need and has a bigger impact on the game. It is also a position of need as Hargreaves is not working out and even if he does we need 3 CB’s. Also, as mentioned on this site, Grimes’ career is coming to a close and we don’t know… Read more »

BUCS MOCK DRAFT Draft Strategy *This mock draft assumes that both DE Bradley Chubb and OG Quenton Nelson are off the board. If not either will be taken at #7 in RD1. *This mock also assumes that a veteran CB will be signed in late free agency, DRC, Bashaud Breeland, etc. *The Bucs at #7 (1500 pts} trade down with the Bills at #12 (1200 pts). Bucs get Bills #12 (1200 pts) and Bills 2nd #53 (370 pts). 70 point differential is cost of doing business. With the loss of our 3rd round pick, we pick up an additional 2nd.… Read more »

Mac, best mock draft I have seen so far this season. As someone recently wrote you can never have to many pass rushers. The Bucs have two (JPP and Curry). Spence cannot be counted on to be there, if he is great, if not the Bucs need another pass rusher. Like both of your 6th round picks.

I’m not a big fan of D. James as he left too many plays on the field last year as a leader on a defense that underperformed last year. I was disappointed in him more for giving up plays in the passing game but he didn’t wow me with his run defense either. To me Fitzpatrick was a little better and that’s who I expect the Bucs to pick if they stay at #7, which I don’t think they will. I think they’ll trade down to the #12 spot for both of the Bills first round picks. Then they can… Read more »

I, like everyone else, was smitten with Michel during the Bowl Championship Series. However, upon further review some questions were raised. Like last year, I looked up the fumble rate of the draft eligible RBs. They were rated as Elite (150 or bettor); Above Average (125-149); Average (100-124); Below Average (76-99); and Red Flag (75 and lower). Michel was rated Red Flag with a score of 54.6, next to last. N. Chubb, 98.6; D. Guice 100.6; R. Penny 105.8;R. Freeman 114; J. Kelly 123.3;J. Adams 174; K. Johnson 1191.3; S. Barkley 193.3; R. Jones 207.7; and D. Williams 359. The… Read more »

Scott, as far as mocks go this is a good discussion piece. The Bucs still need pass rushers and a left guard. RB, DT, CB and SS are also needs. James is an above average SS. He won the combine, but his numbers in uniform don’t match his combine numbers. He would be a mid-to late first rounder for me, not a top ten, his game performance doesn’t support a top ten. With other needs I would not double up on RB that early in the draft. Finally, another 5’10” cornerback. Einstein said to do the same thing over and… Read more »
