The first round of the NFL Draft is happening tonight, but we can look forward to the second round as well. That will be conducted tomorrow, starting at 7 PM ET. The Bucs have the fourth pick of the second round, or the 36th overall pick. Let's go through three of CBS' two-round mock drafts to see who they have the Bucs taking.

Pat Kirwan:

Lamar Miller, RB, Miami (Fla.): Coaches keep telling me Miller is the second-best running back. There are concerns about his shoulders but he has big-play potential.

This pick makes perfect sense, although I'd prefer Doug Martin for the Bucs' (likely) power-based running game, and Martin's superior pass-blocking skills. Still, Miller is a dynamic back who is very raw and could bring a different dimension to the Bucs' offense.

Dane Brugler:

Doug Martin, RB, Boise State: If the Bucs miss out on Trent Richardson in the first round, they could very easily have their choice of the No. 2 back here.

And here's the running back I'd rather have: a powerful, all-around back who is an experienced pass blocker and receiver.

Rob Rang:

Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska: Fair or not, David has often been compared to Bucs' great Derrick Brooks. He might get a chance to fill his old spot.

Lavonte David has been linked with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since last year, and for good reason: he's an explosive weakside linebacker with excellent coverage skills. He's a little undersized, but he's fast and his instincts compensate for his lack of size. He'd be a weakside linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and could step right into a starting spot.
