Mel Kiper has another mock draft out, which is always fun. Say what you want about the man: he has plenty of connections, and he does do the work -- even though he isn't one of the better draft analysts out there. With Star Lotulelei's heart checking out, he has him falling to the Bucs -- and the Buccaneers would be crazy not to pick up one of the most talented defensive tackles in the NFL.
This isn't the top need for the Bucs, but now that Lotulelei has been cleared medically, he becomes a steal at this spot on the board. Cornerback is a need, but the drop off from Milliner to the best available option is enough where the Bucs miss out on some board value if they take one here. You simply can't have enough depth on the defensive line, and Lotulelei is one of those rare defensive tackles with the potential to become dominant.
Pair him with Gerald McCoy and you have a ridiculously destructive interior defensive line. But the second-round pick in this mock draft is more intriguing: Jamar Taylor out of Boise State.
Cornerback is the biggest need for the Bucs, and Taylor can help early.
Jamar Taylor's an intriguing prospect. He's a little undersized, but he's physical, strong in run support and above all adept in man coverage. He'd fit the Buccaneers like a glove, and it seems that he's getting more and more internet hype as the days go by. Usually that's a sign that teams have started communicating their interest in prospects through sources -- although part of it is always misdirection.
In any case, Taylor can probably step in and play early on. He's a good fit for the scheme, and a quality player -- so the pick makes sense. Kiper making sense? Yes, it's entirely possible!
