With less than a month to go until the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are keeping busy, hosting an additional three prospects.
After reporting yesterday that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were set to host linebackers Devin White and Devin Bush, three more prospects have been scheduled to visit as part of the pre-draft top-30 visits according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Meeting with the Buccaneers this week include Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat and safety Johnathan Abram, as well as Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford.
With now six of the Buccaneers’ 30 visits reported on after Maryland safety Darnell Savage has been hosted in addition to the two linebackers and this group, general manager Jason Licht and company are doing their due diligence on top prospects with just a few weeks to go until the 2019 NFL Draft. Ford and Sweat are looking like first round locks, while Abram could be a candidate for the Buccaneers to be keeping tabs on with their second round pick.
These three players would also indicate that the Buccaneers are still extremely motivated to trade out of the top five of the draft, as none of the listed prospects, besides maybe Sweat, are worthy of a top five selection. Ford has been mocked to fall anywhere between 13-28, while Abram has yet to crack the first round.
Get to know the three players set to come to Tampa Bay in order for the team to get to know them better.
