Mock Draft Fever!!!

Since this is a blog/message board, I feel we have the ability to post whatever we want as long as it pertains to the Buccaneers.

That being said, I was on SBNation looking at the Panther's page and they found a pretty cool website. It's called FanSpeak.com. FanSpeak has built a mock draft simulator and you can pick draft picks for one team and the other 31 is based off needs and BPA. Now, it isn't a perfect system but it is fun to play with. They have three rankings form FanSpeak, WalterFootball, and Optimum Scouting. You can choose one of them to create your own 7 round draft. Some of the rankings are not up to date.

As being said, I used FanSpeak's rankings and got these picks.

R1 WR SAMMY WATKINS, CLEMSON
R2 G DAVID YANKEY, STANFORD
R3 DE TREVOR REILLY, UTAH
R5 QB AARON MURRAY, GEORGIA
R7 TE COLT LYERLA, OREGON

I picked up Watkins and Yankey for BPA and needs. Round 3 was just a throw up. I chose DE because we can never have enough. There were some OLB and depth on the line too. Round 5 was a choice between Murray and Fales. Round 7 was a personal pick. He got kicked off Oregon's football team last year or he would've been a 2nd rounder.

Using WalterFootball's rankings, I got these picks.

R1 DE JADEVEON CLOWNEY, SOUTH CAROLINA
R2 TE JACE AMARO, TEXAS TECH
R3 C TRAVIS SWANSON, ARKANSAS
R5 QB AARON MURRAY, GEORGIA
R7 WR CODY HOFFMAN, BYU

In the first round, Clowney dropped to us. The three QB's, Watkins, Mack, and Robinson were all picked before us. We pick up the next Simeon Rice. In the second round I went with Amaro because we still have a need at TE. The third round I went with Swanson because we could always push him or EDS to G. In the 5th, Smith was taken but Murray and McCarron were both there. And lastly, I went with Hoffman because we need to get him LAID!

Using Optimum Scouting's rankings, I got these picks.

R1 WR SAMMY WATKINS, CLEMSON
R2 QB DEREK CARR, FRESNO STATE
R3 C TRAVIS SWANSON, ARKANSAS
R5 TE COLT LYERLA, OREGON
R7 OLB PRINCE SHEMBO, NOTRE DAME

I picked up Watkins as he was BPA. Both guards were gone by round two so I took Carr. I had Swanson drop to me in round three. Lyerla was a personal pick. He has a lot of off the field issues but he could've been 2nd round talent if he played last year. I picked Shembo because he is a PRINCE!

Each time the simulator is run, the choices are different. You might have different choices as me. So give it a shot and comment your results and why you chose the people you did.
