1
743

In this Buccaneers mock draft the team trades out of the first round by sending their 27th overall pick to the Houston Texans for their 37th, 68th and 107th picks.

Round 2, Pick 37 via Trade
Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia
HT: 6’3 WT: 315 lbs

Devonte Wyatt is a rare physical specimen for his size. He is explosive off of the ball and can overpower most typical offensive linemen. Wyatt posted great combine numbers in the 40 (4.77), three-cone (7.45), broad jump (9’3). Very effective on stunts and twists making him hard to control.

Round 2, Pick 60
Ed Ingram, G, LSU
HT: 6’4 WT: 320 lbs

Ed Ingram has a solid base with plenty of strength to move defenders off their spot. Ingram’s hands are quick and powerful, especially his right jab. He has starting experience at both guard positions bringing versatility to the offensive line. Ingram would definitely push existing Buccaneers guards for a starting spot.

Round 3, Pick 68 via Trade
Trey McBride, TE, Colorado St.
HT: 6’3 WT: 249 lbs

At this time, Rob Gronkowski hasn’t decided if he wants to retire or play another season in the NFL. Even if he does return to the Buccaneers, tight end is a long term need and a position that takes a few years to truly acclimate to the NFL. Addressing this need in the draft now means McBride will be able to step in as a starter you can feel confident about in a year or two.

Round 3, Pick 91
Braxton Jones, OT, Southern Utah
HT: 6’7 WT: 310 lbs

Braxton Jones has the size and length that teams covet in an offensive tackle. Jones is an explosive blocker with solid fundamentals. He does have some things to work on including footwork, hand placement and speed getting to the second level.

Round 4, Pick 107 via Trade
Khalil Shakir, WR, Boise St.
HT: 6’0 WT: 190 lbs

Khalil Shakir is an absolute monster with the ball in his hands. Whether it be on a jet sweep, out of the running back position or after catching a pass, Shakir is a playmaker. He doesn’t shy away from contact, in fact he thrives on it. Think of a younger slightly smaller Deebo Samuel.

Round 4, Pick 132
Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska
HT: 6’0 WT: 197 lbs

Cam Taylor-Britt was a three-year starter and team captain for the Cornhuskers. He has starting experience at both cornerback and safety. Taylor-Britt has that extra gear to stay with speedy receivers. He excels at 50/50 balls using his strength to his advantage.

Round 7, Pick 246
Max Borghi, RB, Washington St.
HT: 5’10 WT: 205 lbs

Max Borghi will add to the depth and competition of this group. His ability as a pass catcher will be valued by Tom Brady and this Bucs offense. He can be a good third down back if Bernard happens to get injured again this year.

Round 7, Pick 261
Matt Araiza, P, San Diego State
HT: 6’2 WT: 200 lbs

How Araiza was still on the board in the 7th-round is a head scratcher. He is widely regarded as the best at his position in this draft. Araiza has a cannon of a leg and is accurate to boot. The Buccaneers haven’t had much success drafting kickers and punters, but Araiza looks to be the exception to this rule.

  1. Apparently, the urgency of defensive improvement has not occurred to the person who put this together.

    Why are we drafting 2 OL? We have very low need for O-line, despite what everyone seems to assume.

    Also, it’s extremely doubtful that Wyatt will be there at pick #37…

    I like the McBride pick, but he will probably go in round 2. I also like the Britt pick. I also think spending a 7th rounder on the punter is a good idea. We need to get better there.
