This is the final Buccaneers 7-round mock draft we’re putting out this year. In this rendition the Bucs build up their trenches with four of their six picks. They also add a promising tight end and a safety to develop behind their veterans.
Round 1, Pick 27
Boye Mafe, EDGE, Minnesota
HT: 6’4 WT: 265 lbs
Boye Mafe is an explosive EDGE rusher using power and speed. His great burst and footwork allow him to work through traffic. Mafe’s combination of strength, burst and speed are to attractive for the Buccaneers to pass up here.
Round 2, Pick 60
Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma
HT: 6’4 WT: 290 lbs
Oklahoma’s Perrion Winfrey has a game built around quickness off the line of scrimmage and athletic ability. He can be very disruptive as a pass rusher and with more refinement has potential to be great in this area. This comes at the expense of some power upfront, but after watching Matthew Stafford pick the Buccaneers defense apart with little pressure it might be a trade off worth considering.
Round 3, Pick 91
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 4, Pick 133
Tycen Anderson, S, Toledo
HT: 6’2 WT: 209 lbs
Tycen Anderson was a three-year starter who lined up as a nickel and box add-on at Toledo. Anderson’s size, length, and speed show are a great foundation to build on. He’s a tenacious run supporter with good block-take-on and play strength near the line of scrimmage. Anderson is a long, rangy tackler who can close the gap against outside runners.
Round 7, Pick 248
Doug Kramer, C, Illinois
HT: 6’2 WT: 299 lbs
Doug Kramer is an experienced center with a strong grasp of the scheme and leverage. Kramer demonstrates competitive fortitude by fighting to keep blocks alive. His athleticism is above average, as he has the ability to pull. He can locate, drive, and finish opponents at the second level. In a pinch, his versatility should allow him to fill in at guard. Kramer is a project for the Buccaneers moving forward. His experience and ability to play multiple positions is a plus, he needs to work on technique and size.
Round 7, Pick 261
William Dunkle, G, San Diego St.
HT: 6’5 WT: 328 lbs
William Dunkle is a large, muscular physique who has limited upside. Dunkle has great hands with a solid pop off of the ball. His strength and size all but negates any bull-rush. Does need work on pass protection, especially footwork. Dunkle has a high upside, just needs some fine tuning by the Buccaneers coaching staff.
