With less than three weeks to go until the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are deep into pre-draft their pre-draft process.
Happy Friday! To celebrate getting through another week, enjoy the yet another mock draft. The first round of the 2019 NFL draft is officially less than three weeks away as we are 20 days from the first 32 players hearing their names selected. Who will the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select today?
On Monday, we presented the best case scenario for the Buccaneers with Quinnen Williams coming off of the board with the fifth pick in the draft, while Wednesday featured a trade back with Washington with Brian Burns being selected with the 15th pick in the draft while the Buccaneers gathered assets as well. Today will be a straight-forward mock draft, using a combination of rumors and the best player available approach.
The Buccaneers have not made any moves over the past few weeks after adding the likes of Deone Bucannon, Breshad Perriman, and Shaquil Barrett to their roster early in free agency. However, the rumors have gotten heavier regarding Gerald McCoy and his time in Tampa Bay, as it looks like his days in the pewter and red are numbered after it was reported by NFL insider Ben Allbright that the Buccaneers have been looking to trade their former first round pick to no avail.
Although many fans expect cornerback and offensive line to be addressed in the draft, it would not be shocking to see the team wait until day-three on both of those positions. Look for the Buccaneers to make a heavy investment on the defensive line early and then add some offensive talent late.
