The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to address several needs in this mock draft. The Bucs manage to add a potential starter on the defensive line, a punishing EDGE rusher, while adding depth to the running back position. The Buccaneers get an athletic freak with a high-motor with their first pick.
Round 1, Pick 27
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. The Buccaneers get an athletic freak with a high-motor with their first pick.
Round 2, Pick 60
Kingsley Enagbare, EDGE, So.Carolina
HT: 6’4 WT: 260 lbs
Kingsley Enagbare has good length and upper body strength. He has heavy hands with great knock-back power. Excellent tackler that does so in punishing fashion. Has potential to play five-technique, but needs to bulk up and work on his get-off. With Jason Pierre-Paul getting up there in age and still not re-signed, the Buccaneers get a punishing EDGE rusher in the second.
Round 3, Pick 91
Dameon Pierce, HB, Univ. of FL
HT: 5’10 WT: 215 lbs
Dameon Pierce is an explosive back that breaks tackles regularly. His great balance through contact and his quick twitch downfield makes for big play potential. This balance allows for running between the tackles, his burst gives him the option to bounce outside at any time. Pierce will undoubtedly push Giovani Bernard and Ke’Shawn Vaughn for playing time from day one.
The Buccaneers stayed in the SEC for this mock. All three players will have an immediate impact on the team from day one.
