In this 3rd edition of our 3-round mock draft the Buccaneers again are able to address 3 pressing needs.
This particular mock draft started with the Arizona Cardinals selecting QB Kyler Murray 1st overall. The San Francisco 49ers then took OLB Josh Allen with the 2nd pick followed by the New York Jets selecting DE Nick Bosa 3rd and the Oakland Raiders taking DT Quinnen Williams with the 4th pick.
The Buccaneers are on the clock.

Montez Sweat’s film speaks for itself. This player appears to have all the tools, checks all the boxes. His speed off the corner, and tenacious style of play will greatly help the Buccaneers defense. Sweat has all the markings of being a fixture amongst Tampa Bay’s front 7 for years to come.
2nd round (39th Overall)
David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
HT:6’7 WT: 315 lbs
– First-team All-Big Ten (media)

David Edwards is the quintessential Wisconsin lineman. Edward’s size and strength are unquestioned. His knowledge of the game and technique are solid. Edwards needs a little work on his pass sets. Nothing a little coaching up can’t fix.
3rd round (70th Overall)
Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
HT: 5’11 WT: 190 lbs
– APEX Predator Defensive Player of the Game (Buffalo, UCF)
– The STANDARD Player of the Game (Villanova, ECU, Cincinnati, USF)

Rock Ya-Sin was ranked the 4th best CB in this years draft. So for him to fall to the 3rd round like this is good value. Ya-Sin’s strength is press coverage. Rock posted 62 tackles and 7 INT’s in his college career.
