Latest mock draft has Tampa selecting Cook at 19.


There have been numerous mock drafts coming out, over the last couple weeks, with several highly sought after players going to different teams and Tampa Bay has been no exception. Almost every mock draft has them looking at running backs, wide receivers, or offensive lineman.

The general consensus of all mock drafts is that Tampa needs help in the offensive. In the most recent mock draft from Chad Reuter, he has Tampa selecting Florida State running back, Dalvin Cook and Cook would be a nice pick up for the Buccaneers, who are seemingly lying in weeds right now. We don’t know what to expect from Martin when he returns and for now, Tampa seems to be playing that situation by ear.

The Florida State running back rushed for over 4,400 yards and scored 46 touchdowns, in three seasons. He is a very good collegiate running back, but like most who come out of college; Can you trust that he will continue to put up those kinds of numbers?


It is believed that Tampa will target an offensive lineman in the 2nd round, and one lineman’s name that’s being thrown out there, is Dan Feeney.  Feeney, an Indiana product, spent most of his time at the guard position; However, has played center, as well. Feeney could be a great find for Tampa, as they need lineman that are capable of playing other positions on the line. If the 6’4 302 lb lineman can fall into their laps, Tampa should pounce.


Alabama’s ArDarius Stewart is the receiver that Reuter believes Tampa will target in the late rounds. Although Stewart is not a big name WR, in this draft, nor produced flashy numbers in college, he would be a solid addition the receiver corp. He has good hands and is a solid route runner. At 6ft 1 204 lbs, his 16 yards per catch average and his 1,795 yards from scrimmage show me that he is reliable.

Most fans think that Tampa should look at a WR at the beginning of the draft, but if we can get a receiver like Stewart in the latter rounds, it could just play into Tampa’s favor. He could be valuable in the passing and maybe even in the kick return. He has been very productive with Alabama, that is run first mentality offense, so let’s see what he can do with Jameis throwing him the ball.
