With the 2020 NFL Draft just days away it is time for PewterReport.com’s fifth and final 2020 Bucs’ 7-Round Mock Draft, presented by Edmonson Electric • AC • Security.

The Bucs are coming off a 7-9 season and entering the second year with Arians, offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles at the helm. Tampa Bay moved on from former first-round pick Jameis Winston and landed the NFL’s top offseason acquisition in six-time Super Bowl quarterback Tom Brady at the start of free agency. The Bucs also re-signed outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, in addition to using the franchise tag on outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett, the league’s leading sacker.

The Bucs lost No. 3 wide receiver Breshad Perriman in free agency, and addressing the position is now among the team’s more pressing needs. Let’s examine exactly what Tampa Bay’s needs are heading into the draft.

BUCS’ 2020 NFL DRAFT NEEDS

1. OFFENSIVE LINE – Tampa Bay signed Joe Haeg, and he might replace the 34-year old Demar Dotson at right tackle, but the Bucs need a better, younger option at the position, in addition to another guard to challenge Alex Cappa. Tampa Bay’s offensive line isn’t bad, but it isn’t great, either – especially at run blocking. The Bucs also have little quality depth at offensive tackle or inside at guard. Look for Tampa Bay to select two or three offensive linemen in this year’s draft.

2. RUNNING BACK – The Bucs let Peyton Barber sign with Washington in free agency, and Tampa Bay will need another running back to complement and challenge Ronald Jones II. The team could use a pass-catching running back that could also challenge Dare Ogunbowale for the role of third-down back. Tampa Bay had the 24th-ranked rushing attack in 2019, averaging just 95.1 yards per game. The Bucs will select one or two running backs in this year’s draft.

3. WIDE RECEIVER – The Bucs got a glimpse at what life is like with Chris Godwin and Mike Evans injured and out of the lineup in the final two weeks of the season. Scotty Miller and Justin Watson may be better suited as No. 4 receivers, so the Bucs need to add competition here to find a solid No. 3. They’ll take advantage of this deep wide receiver draft and add one later this month.

4. DEFENSIVE TACKLE – Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Suh returned on one-year deals, but the team needs to replace backup nose tackle Beau Allen, in addition to adding some more young talent. Tampa Bay needs a younger heir-apparent to Suh, and better depth at the defensive tackle spot to pair with Vita Vea, a rising star at nose tackle, if the run defense is to continue its’ dominant play.

5. SAFETY – Justin Evans may or may not return to form in 2020 following surgery on both of his feet/ankles last year, and Mike Edwards didn’t show enough as a rookie to be penciled in as a starter. Tampa Bay re-signed Andrew Adams, but the Bucs need a real play-maker at the free safety spot and there isn’t one on the current roster unless Evans comes back healthy and ready to go after missing 2019. Tampa Bay had just two interceptions from the safety position last year, but the Bucs like their current group – if Evans can make a comeback.

Bucs QB Tom Brady

The Bucs enter the 2020 NFL Draft with seven draft selections due to trading wide receiver DeSean Jackson and its seventh-round pick to Philadelphia in exchange for the Eagles’ sixth-rounder last year, but gained a fourth-round compensatory pick for losing middle linebacker Kwon Alexander to San Francisco in free agency last year.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the league still plans on having the the three-day NFL Draft, beginning with the first round on Thursday, April 23. The Bucs plan on finding some more weapons and protection for Brady, so expect an offensive-oriented draft for Tampa Bay.

ROUND 1: Houston OT Josh Jones
6-5, 311 – Senior

PREVIOUS PICK: Georgia OT Andrew Thomas
This marks the fourth time PewterReport.com has had Jones in its 2020 Bucs’ 7-Round Mock Draft. Jones first appeared as a second-rounder in the initial mock draft in January before moving to the first-round following the Senior Bowl. In the third mock draft, PewterReport.com had Tampa Bay selecting Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor at No. 14 and then trading back up into the first round to select Jones.

We wouldn’t be surprised if that ultimately happens, but in our final mock draft, we have Jones going to Tampa Bay at No. 14.

Why?

Houston OT Josh Jones

Because there is a good chance that the top four offensive tackles – Alabama’s Jedrick Wills, Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs, Louisville’s Mekhi Becton and Georgia’s Andrew Thomas – will be gone by the time Tampa Bay is on the clock. The Bucs have done plenty of research on Jones, who allowed just 18 pressures on 1,282 passing plays in his four years as a starter at Houston, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

Jones received a 93.2 grade from PFF, which was the highest grade ever given to a tackle that was not in a Power 5 conference. His run blocking improved dramatically during his senior year, as he was given a grade of 62.8 in 2018 and then a run-blocking grade of 92.7 in 2019.

Jones will compete with Joe Haeg for the right to start at right tackle during his rookie season, and then has the ability to perhaps slide over to left tackle if the team wants to part ways with Donovan Smith after his contract expires following the 2021 season – or perhaps even after the 2020 season when Smith no longer has any remaining guaranteed money.

Jones has great size at 6-foot-5, 311 pounds and athleticism. He has plenty of experience as a four-year starter at left tackle and has the ideal footwork and wingspan to move to the right side and be successful there. Jones’ quick feet and athleticism stems from playing basketball while growing up, and that not only benefits him in his kick slide, but also gives him the ability to pull on run blocking assignments.

Jones was dominant at the Senior Bowl and was the highest-graded offensive tackle during the week of practice, winning the award for the top North squad offensive lineman for the practice week.

“Where he’s at right now, I’d expect Josh Jones to be a first-rounder,” said Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy on Twitter.

“I just get the job done,” Jones said at the Senior Bowl. “This year I let up four pressures – and a half a sack. I’m dominant at it. I take pride in it. If I give up a pressure, if I’m even close to (surrendering) a sack, I’m kicking myself in the butt. It’s just pride – I feel like every O-lineman has that pride.”

Tampa Bay running game coordinator Harold Goodwin and offensive line coach Joe Gilbert met with Jones at the Senior Bowl, and the Bucs’ brass met with Jones at the NFL Scouting Combine for a formal interview. In the last couple of weeks the coaches and scouts also had a pre-draft teleconference meeting with Jones.

Tampa Bay believes that there aren’t just four elite offensive tackles in this draft class. There are five – and Jones is one of them. If Thomas or Becton doesn’t slide to No. 14, the Bucs will select Jones and be very happy with their decision.

Watch Smith, who wears No. 74, in this highlight video against Oklahoma.

Here is a montage of some of Jones’ highlight clips throughout his senior season.

You’re right. He’s not. At all. Just because he caught 76 balls, doesn’t mean he’s a good receiver. He’s mediocre at best. No better than RJ. His explosiveness and vision as a receiver are below average.

Right, but there have been NO rumors, like from actual sources (as far as I know), about the Bucs possibly trading for Fournette… Just people speculating based on availability of players and the Bucs obvious need for a RB. Those circumstantial factors plus Bucs fan speculations does not equal rumor. It’s hot air until someone with connections to NFL sources connects those dots.

This is not completely crazy idea because both are at the end of their rookie contracts. I also assume neither will be re-signed by their current clubs. For the Bucs this would be a 1 year rental because they will not pay Fournette what he will want.

I don’t think the bucs would resign him to a long term deal but instead just tag him while we still have Brady. Fournette, Rojo, and possibly a rookie as our 3 running backs doesn’t sound too bad to me.

14 is too high for Josh Jones, have to trade down for him.

I’d rather draft QB James Morgan in round 4. IMO Stanley is a career back up at NFL level. Morgan is a better developmental prospect with potential to be a starter. IMO perfect to have him learn from Brady for a few years.

Waiting until round 6 for the 3rd WR, is waiting too late.

C+ on this mock.

Agreed on Jones 100%. The rest of the mock is cool, three LSU players – we have had a ton of success from that school. But if we take Jones at 14 I’m going to break something. And I won’t trust Arians anymore as he has said drafting for need gets you fired, you take best player available. Jones is farrr from the best player on the board at 14. That will be a need pick all the way.

Here’s the thing: if the top 4 OT are gone, the Bucs kind of have to take Jones there. Lucas Niang has health issues, and there’s not a starting caliber OT past that.

The rest of the mock is money, though I’m not sure about another slight speedster WR in the 7th. I’m going B+ here.

Obvious reach at 14. Not one person anywhere has Jones as a top 14 player. That would be a horrible selection. That’s just too early for Jones. If we got him via a trade back, I’d be ok with that. But based on most recent mock drafts, it’s not a reach for CEH. Most have him late 2nd early 3rd. But If we could trade down, get Jones, and pick up and extra 3rd, we might be able to squeeze off CEH in the 3rd. But without an earlier 3rd it’s risky to wait and hope he’s there

I’d much rather have Thomas or Becton, but not sure we can trade down a lot and still get Jones. Miami could be looking OT at #18. Trading down 2 or 3 spot might net us another 4th… and that’s assuming Miami doesn’t try to jump us if we trade down. He’s not the sexy pick (I kind of hesitate to call any pick a sexy pick though when we’re talking about 300# dudes), but waiting to round 2 for an OT to protect Brady could be a disaster. Also think CEH will be gone well before we pick in… Read more »

I do because it’s true. Nobody considers Jones a top 14 pick. Only reason he’s being considered there is because some think there’s a huge drop off from Jones and Jackson to the 7th best tackle. So supply in demand is driving his draft stock. Small school and that’s about it? Small school is a part of it. As is his consistency. His pass blocking is average at best, his pass blocking technique and foot work are below average. He’s a raw talent that needs a ton of work on technique and footwork. If he started day 1 protecting Brady,… Read more »

How many times you gonna ask the same question? Yes, nobody considers him a top 14 player. Out of 200+ mock drafts, dozens of top 100 or top 200 player rankings, and countless analysts or experts(who are former scouts, GM’s, or players), nobody has him as being ranked as a top 14 player. And NFL teams rely on every source for player evaluation. You are incredibly naive if you think NFL teams don’t use mock drafts, player rankings, and player evaluations as a tool to see how others view the prospects

Love Akers, but he’s not the pass catcher CEH is. Not all that close either. CEH is easily the best pass catching back in this class. My view is, if we have to take CEH in round 2, I’d rather wait a round and get Akers to tandem with RJ, then pick up C.Thompson in FA as our pass catching back. But if we can land CEH in round 3, then I’d just do that, and not pick up a FA. I don’t want to spend a 2nd round pick on either or

This is a very, ‘meh’ draft to me. Don’t really care for the first two picks unless the first pick is because we traded back a few spots. If Kinlaw is there he would be a much better fit for that slot. I’d take Swift, Dobbins, Taylor over CEH with Ackers a toss up between the two. The third on I’m ok with. We shall see, but this is a c+ mock for me. Although I’m just a couch fan so for what that’s worth lol.

This mock draft is the one SR prides himself on, year in and year out. Many of these players have appeared on the previous mocks.

Wirfs is beat across his face and to the outside by good DEs on passing downs. He’s always off balance. He is a big time projection.

Love has a big arm, but is turnover prone. Ring any bells?

Akers trips over his own feet, a lot. He doesn’t play as fast as his 40. He is tackled by the first person to make contact almost always. His big runs were through gaping holes. If there wasn’t a massive hole, he couldn’t create on his own.

Sorry man, but I whole heartedly disagree on Wirfs. Every year there’s a few combine all stars that see their 2nd round or late 1st round stock soar them into the top 10. Wirfs is that guy. His tape is nowhere near as clean as Thomas. It’s amazing how every year, mock drafts and GM’s like the freak athlete over the consistent clean tape guys. Thomas is the way to go. Hard pass on Wirfs. Especially since we’d have to trade to to get him, because most have him going in the 4-9 range

Nobody said Akers is an automatic hit. None of my analysis has ever hinted at that. My only analysis is that Taylor is completely overrated based on speed times and catching drills in shorts. And that Akers is underrated, and that basing his future NFL prospect solely on what he did in college is completely foolish, seeing as he had the worst line and worst offense around him of any RB in the draft. Hence why he’s projected to go anywhere from round 2-4. If he was drafted solely on college stats, he’d be a 6th or 7th rounder. But… Read more »

Problem is too many teams need OT help. If the “Top 4” really are gone by 14, there’s no way Jones makes it very much further. Miami trades away Tunsil and will be looking to replace him with their 2nd first round pick. You’ve seen the analysis on anyone past Jones and it isn’t very promising. If Jones plays as well in the NFL as he did in the AAC he will be worth the 14th pick. Question is, will he?

Agree- not what I hoped at the start of the process but we can’t afford to trade down and miss out on a tackle with MIA lurking.

With speculation that some teams may value 2021 picks more highly (due to not being able to visit w/prospects), wonder if we could get an extra pick this year by giving up a 2021. Nothing crazy like a RD1, but I feel we need all these positions and still haven’t addressed S at all or DL early enough

I know everyone expects offense in the first 3 rounds, but what if the Bucs went defense?

It’s been pointed out by many that Tom needs protection and pass catching running backs. The other reason Tom was so successful in NE was Belichick’s great defenses every year.

If the Bucs took defense in the first round who would it be?
S Xavier McKinney? DT Kinlaw? DE/OLB Gross-Matos? LB Kenneth Murray? CB Henderson?

If the top 4 tackles are gone and the top DTs are also gone, one or more of the top WRs will be there. That will put the Bucs in prime trade down territory. Broncos, Dolphins, Eagles, Patriots, Raiders, Vikings, Titans all looking for receiver help. There are also teams looking to trade up for a corner (Vikings, Cowboys, Falcons). The Bucs could drop back a few spots and still get Jones. This would be ideal.

I don’t care for this mock. The Bucs need to take one of the top four, because everybody in the scouting and player evaluation business this year believe there is a huge dropoff after the top 4. We are investing way too much in a starting quarterback to “settle” for OT, especially when our starter on the left side is iffy to begin with. Also, it is a mistake to wait until the fifth round to take a QB. We need someone who grades out at a second or third round talent to be the backup to the GOAT. Those… Read more »

Agree with your take on the top 4 tackles and needing to get one at 14 rather than settle for the 5th best. But don’t really agree with a QB early. I think all those QB’s stink and don’t think we should take any QB before round 5, unless it Hurts is there still in the 4th. This draft class sucks for QB’s. I’m not a fan of any of them. Even the top ones. There’s gonna be an awful lot of busts that come out of this class at QB

Getting a quarterback in the second or third round who either grows into a starter or becomes an effective career backup is NOT a bust. Taking a quarterback in the first round who is expected to start quickly and who flames out IS a bust. Look around at all the QBs who people like you said were certain busts who were not “first tier talent” that not only turned out to be effective starters, but who became Hall of Fame talents.

Nope – there is a reason that the consensus amongst virtually all NFL draft watchers that there is indeed a “top 4” group of OTs, and not a “top 8”. Nobody talks about the “top 8 OTs” in the draft this year.

Scott, I wouldn’t be surprised in Jones outplayed one or two of the four horsemen down the road. I like the pick and Jone/Helaire would be a very good one-two. While I would like to see Shaquille Quarterman a later round, I am advocating for one guy (as a Hurricane fan) and that’s WR Jeff Thomas. The Canes’ offense has been horrible over the last few years with really bad QBs, but was a true playmaker when he had the ball. He would be pushing that #3 WR spot for the Bucs if he was drafted in the 5-7 round… Read more »

Agree for the most part. CEH is tricky. Because he could be there in round 2 but be gone by round 3. Same with Akers. So we may have to reach a little for one of the RB’s. I’d love to be able to be Dobbins, Akers, or CEH in round 3. But something tells me they may all be gone by our 3rd

In order to get a RB in the 3rd, it may take a round 1 trade down where we get a very early 3rd. It’s gonna be really tough to get the guys we want where we want this year. May take some trades to make it happen. Staying Pat might now work this year.

Plus people do not look at are team when they just love Taylor or Dobbins over CEH.

I suppose ya gotta pick somebody next week and no two mockers are going to match 7 for 7. I like the 2nd O-Lineman but 2 RB’s and 2WR’s is a bit imaginative. The only picks anybody has a chance of hitting on is the first 3 and that is rare. It may sound strange but every highlight film shows a winner. The good thing about mock drafts is they tease ones imagination beforehand and usually demonstrate ones ability to quickly forget 4 months and many hours of indepth wishful thinking. Reality is usually a bitch.

Not my favorite mock, Scott. Jones at #14 seems high and CEH wouldn’t be my pick in RD2. I’d also go DL in RD3 as there are good interior OG that can be had later on the draft. RD4 is also pretty high for Gibson. Lastly, a QB pick is a waste in this draft when there are good S options out there and seems to be shaping up as a need. I do like Lawrence in RD4.

Totally agree on QB. I really don’t see it with any of these QB’s. I think they all stink with the exception of maybe Hurts, Love, and Burrow. I’m not drafting a QB in the middle rounds just to draft one. If you don’t see a QB as our QB for the future, don’t waste draft capital on em. There are no QB’s after the 1st round that have a chance to be our QB of the future, outside maybe Hurts. Even him I’m iffy on

Completely agree. With Griff and Gabbert on the roster, makes no sense. I’m still not convinced we need Both of them.

This is the best mock for the Bucs I’ve seen anywhere, and is likely what I would do if I was GM and the players selected were available in their respective rounds.

I see other commenters saying Jones and CEH are “reaches”. I think this is nonsense. These two will likely be impact players from Day 1. Josh Jones likely wouldn’t make it past 18. He is a day 1 starter at right tackle, he dominated in college and at the Senior Bowl. CEH is special.

I wouldn’t mind this draft if it came to it, but I think we get a safety somewhere in the 2-3rd round.

Do we take a chance on him with a suspect drug test, with him knowing he was going to get tested and still failing the test?

The main reason to get weapons like Gibson and Proche, these are the types of players Brady likes. People forget Gibson was the best RB at the Senior Bowl.

I would like to give you idea the power of trading back in round 2. If the Bucs trade back to say pick 60ish, that means they would also pick up a late 3rd (90ish).

Can’t see taking the 5th rated OT with the 14th overall selection. I guess it would depend on who is left on the board. I understand the need to protect Brady but getting a guy that probably doesn’t start right away isn’t worthy of this high of a selection.
