Let's take another look at a few multiple-rounds mock drafts. The first time I did this can be found here: March 18th. I use three sources: Pewter Report, Walter from Walterfootball.com, and Charlie Campbell, also from Walterfootball.com.
These mock drafts were posted before the Bucs traded away their second fifth-round pick for George Johnson.
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers|
|April 15th, 2015 Mock Drafts from PR, Walter, and Charlie|
|Rd||Pewter Report||Walter Football||Charlie Campbell|
|1||QB Jameis Winston||QB Jameis Winston||QB Jameis Winston|
|2||OT TJ Clemmings||OT Jake Fisher||OT TJ Clemmings|
|3||FS Damarious Randall||G Arie Kouandijo||DE Nate Orchard|
|4||RB Jeremy Langford||DE Anthony Chickillo||G Jarvis Harrison|
|5||WR Jamison Crowder||WR Darren Waller||ILB Ramik Wilson|
|MLB Ben Heeney||CB JaCorey Shepherd||C Andy Gallik|
|6||DE Ryan Delaire|
|7||CB Bobby McCain|
After reviewing all three entries, there seems to be a disconnect between Pewter Report and the Bucs' needs for offensive line help as Pewter Report only addresses offensive tackle, whereas the Walter guys addressed both the OT and G positions. I like Charlie's mock draft the best. He has the Bucs drafting C Andy Gallik out of Boston College, who Tony Pauline noted drew some interest from the Bucs.
In Buc It's "What History Tells Us About the NFL Draft" conclusion, here is how Tampa should draft:
Round 1: QB
Round 2: OT
Round 3: Defensive Line
Round 4: LB, TE, or RB
Round 5: DL, DB, G, or C
Round 6: OL, DB, or WR
Round 7: OL, DB, or WR
Oddly enough, Charlie Campbell closely follows this formula for this week's mock draft.
Which of these mock drafts do you most agree with? What would your five or seven round mock draft look like, without trades?
