2013 NFL Draft: Seven Round Buccaneers Mock Draft (With Trade)

As referenced in my previous mock draft, here is the seven round mock draft for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if they were to make a trade in the first round. The trade would be with the Green Bay Packers, moving down to the 26th selection, and picking up a second round pick and future considerations in the process. Here is how I think the draft could go if the Buccaneers move down in the first round:

Round 1: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Johnathan Hankins
Defensive Tackle, Ohio State

With Roy Miller gone, the Bucs pick up a replacement. Hankins would be a great space eater next to Gerald McCoy, and is versatile enough to move around when needed. He’s not an every down guy, but is a lot more dynamic than Roy Miller.

Round 2: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Johnthan Banks
Cornerback, Mississippi State

Banks has been sliding down draft boards, as players get hyped up and moved into the first round. That’s just fine with me, as I believe Banks is the 2nd best corner in this draft, and fits everything the Bucs want.

Round 2: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Phillip Thomas
Safety, Fresno State

I’ve talked about Thomas in the past, and I am excited about the idea of having him around. A very productive safety who finds the football.

Round 3: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tank Carradine
Defensive End, Florida State

Hopefully Da’Quan Bowers beats his gun charge. If he does, or doesn’t, the Bucs will likely add another defensive end this offseason anyways. Patrik Nohe told us that Tank is a top prospect who suffered an injury late in his college career that’s moving him down draft boards.

Round 4: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chase Thomas
Linebacker, Stanford

Thomas could compete to replace Quincy Black, or at least provide depth at linebacker. He’s a fit to be a strong side linebacker, and is one of the best prospects at the position in this draft.

Round 4: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jon Bostic
Linebacker, Florida

Bostic is a hard worker and smart player who could give Mason Foster a run for his money at middle linebacker.

Round 5: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brennan Williams
Offensive Tackle, North Carolina

Williams could compete for the right tackle job. He’s got NFL bloodlines and an NFL-sized body.

Round 6: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brandon McGee
Cornerback, Miami

Lots of potential in this guy, he just has to put it all together. At the very least he brings more depth at corner.

Round 7: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jasper Collins
Wide Receiver, Mount Union

An option at slot receiver, and an instant boost to special teams. He could be the next Cecil Shorts or Pierre Garcon.
