Tampa Bay Buccaneers
10 Most Commonly Picked Players
Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M , RS Soph  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 1222 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Since Mike WIlliams went to Buffalo, The Bucs have virtually no one to play opposite of Vincent Jackson, so Evans would definitely be a wise choice.

Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo , RS Sr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 650 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Mack isn't a perfect scheme fit for the Buccaneers, but the reality is that they need a top pass rusher who can play multiple positions in a 4-3. Mack has the versatility to play nearly any position in the front seven outside of defensive tackle. His pass rushing ability would nicely complement Gerald McCoy, and would most importantly fill the Bucs gaping need at LE. It's kind of a shame, Mack really belongs at 3-4 OLB or an aggressive 4-3 OLB. Don't rule him out standing up even for the Bucs.

Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M , RS Soph  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 550 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Bucs don't have many needs, so they can afford to select Manziel to groom behind Josh McCown.

Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M , Sr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 516 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
If he falls this far, it's a no brainer. Lovie Smith isn't accustomed to having great offensive lineman. This pick ups up some holes for Doug Martin and protects Mike Glennon. The Bucs won't have to worry about this position for a while. You can also look forward to hearing the words "Mike is our quarterback" over and over and over wait for it. ................ and over again for the entire 2014 Season.

Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA , Sr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 436 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Bucs need to get more pressure on the QB if they're going to get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2007. They also need to look into trading up (if they can) to keep the rival Falcons from acquiring a talented pass rusher like Jadeveon Clowney. Even if they can't, Anthony Barr would be a nice consolation prize. Barr is one of the top pass rushing prospects in this draft. Some NFL scouts even think he's better than Clowney, meaning that he'll be a Top-10 pick. Barr would be a nice fit into Lovie Smith's Tampa 2 Defense, which often blitzes its OLBs. With Mason Foster at MLB and both Lavonte David and Barr on the outside, Tampa's LB corps has a chance at being extremely fearsome.

Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson , Jr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 413 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Not the most pressing need, but he is the most explosive player in the draft. To put him alongside Vincent Jackson wouldn't be a bad idea.

Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn , RS Soph  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 365 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Doug Martin needs someone to open holes for him and this man can do it. Watching Auburn run the ball was a joy this year. Look for him to excel at the combine, but probably fall once. Lineman get body conscious when not wearing their pads.

Blake Bortles, QB, UCF , RS Jr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 247 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Bucs are trying to trade down here, I don't doubt it. I'm not sure they can though unless Manziel falls here and Jerry is seriously interested. Lovie wants his QB, and one with upside that he can groom behind McCown without a major push to have him start immediately.

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan , RS Sr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 166 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Bucs need an OT, and the Michigan product impressed at the combine. This pick assumes they don't address the position in free agency. Based on their salary cap problems I don't think they will be able to.

Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh , Sr  -  Going to the Buccaneers on 165 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
It's very tempting to put M. Evans here in light of the M. Williams trade, but there are just so many great WR's that will be available after the 1st round and great 3-technique DT's only come around every 3 or 4 years. Is A. Robinson or K. Benjamin, who will be there in the top of the 2nd round really that much worse than M. Evans? The Bucs have G. McCoy and signed MacDonald to play NT, but MacDonald only had 1 year of production and there is no depth behind these guys. They plan to rotate their D-linemen and Donald is the perfect fit for their scheme. After his showing at the Senior Bowl, Combine and his production at Pitt, A. Donald has proven he is worthy of being selected this high to play NT or the 3-technique behind McCoy. Donald is undersized at 288 lb, but he is as strong as a 330 lb guy with the speed and leverage of a 270 lb guy. He moved like a LB through his drills at the combine! He'll help bring fear back to the hearts of QB's who face the Bucs D-line.
