Todd McShay's 2012 Mock Draft: Morris Claiborne, or Luke Kuechly?

Todd McShay of ESPN has released two mock drafts over the past days. His outfit Scouts Inc. released a seven round mock draft yesterday, while McShay himself mocked the first round today. In his own mock draft, he has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers picking Morris Claiborne after Matt Kalil and Trent Richardson went off the board at number three and four respectively. In yesterday's mock draft, he had the Bucs picking Luke Kuechly with both Claiborne and Richardson off the board.

The other six rounds of that mock draft are a lot more interesting. The Bucs take running back David Wilson in the second round, cornerback Jayron Hosley in the third round, running back Tauren Poole in the fifth round, safety Winston Guy in the sixth round and linebacker Shawn Loiseau in the seventh. That group of players would address the Bucs' major needs, but it would still leave them with a lot of uncertainty at the safety position - perhaps the biggest weakness on the team.
