The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to address several needs in this mock draft. The Bucs do just that by adding a starting corner, depth at tight end, linebacker and on the offensive and defensive lines
Round 1, Pick 27
Kaiir Elam, CB, Univ. of FL
HT: 6’2 WT: 196 lbs
Kaiir Elam has the desired length and strength required to play defensive back at this level. His size lows him to play physical at the line stuffing receivers regularly. Doesn’t tend to bite on double moves or fakes, great footwork and range. Has the ability and inclination to contest catches, which typically go in his favor. Elam would compete for a starting position from day one.
Round 2, Pick 60
Brian Asamoah, LB, Oklahoma
HT: 6’0 WT: 226 lbs
Brian Asamoah projects as a weakside inside linebacker. He is a sideline to sideline type backer who thrives in read and reacting. Plays well to the point of attack and in coverage. An excellent tackler who will immediately excel on special teams and push for extended playing time.
Round 3, Pick 91
Kellen Diesch, T, Arizona State
HT: 6’7 WT: 300 lbs
Kellen Diesch is very athletic for his size. His quickness and fluidity are top notch. Diesch is a two-year starter for ASU’s pro-style offense. Look for him to be a swing style tackle with an upside of being a starter.
Round 4, Pick 133
Grant Calcaterra, TE, SMU
HT: 6’5 WT: 247 lbs
Grant Calcaterra is an athletic tight end with great ball skills. He possesses a great football IQ. He does need to work on his blocking if he’s to succeed at this level. His ability to create mismatches is good if not great.
Round 7, Pick 248
Doug Kramer, OL, Illinois
HT: 6’2 WT: 305 lbs
Doug Kramer is an experienced lineman who can play guard or center with toughness. Kramer has a nasty streak that finishes his blocks. His ability to play all three interior positions is something the Buccaneers covet.
Round 7, Pick 261
Jordan Jackson, DL, Air Force
HT: 6’5 WT: 285 lbs
Jordan Jackson is a high-motor defensive lineman that can play defensive end and tackle. His quickness and active hands help him with interior rushing. Jackson is best at getting to the pocket and chasing the play down the line.
