In this Buccaneers mock draft the team stayed in the south. In doing so the Bucs add three potential starters at positions that desperately need depth.
Round 1, Pick 27
Andrew Booth, CB, Clemson
HT: 6’0 WT: 200 lbs
Andrew Booth is a combination press/zone corner that plays fast with a competitive nature. Booth has the balance and strength to play press effectively when needed and the range and instincts to play zone. He has excellent ball-tracking ability and the strength to win 50/50 balls. His instinct as a ball-hawker and his willingness in run support will be what catches the Buccaneers eye.
Round 2, Pick 60
Dylan Parham, G, Memphis
HT: 6’3 WT: 285 lbs
Dylan Parham plays the position with great technique and discipline. Parham has a great burst and push-back off of the ball. He can play both guard positions without an issue which is attractive to the Buccaneers. His size might concern some, but he’s proven he can get the job done. Look for Parham to be in the mix for the Bucs open guard position, at the least a quality backup for both guard positions.
Round 3, Pick 91
James Cook, RB, Georgia
HT: 5’11 WT: 190 lbs
James Cook has the speed to get outside and make plays on the second level. Cook is a threat to take it the distance whenever he has the ball in his hands. He’s a great route runner with great hands out of the backfield. Cook is a defensive coordinators nightmare creating matchup advantages every time he runs a route. Look for Cook to compete immediately for playing time with the Buccaneers.
