The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are open to trading back in the draft, now less than two weeks away, and here they execute a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals.
We are under two weeks to go until the 2019 NFL Draft, and as the date approaches, every stone must be turned over. It is a real possibility the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could trade down out of the fifth pick in the draft with a team very much in need of a quarterback. In this mock draft, the Buccaneers make a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals who trade up to grab Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
Here are the details of the deal:
The Buccaneers are deeply in need of help along the defensive side of the football, and it would not be a shock to see them utilize their picks in the first four rounds on that side of the football. With seven draft picks before the trade, they now have nine this year to find talent while also adding another first rounder in next year’s draft.
While Devin White is more than likely going to be off of the board at the 11th pick in the draft, the Buccaneers will have the ability to find quality defensive talent in a deep class on that side of the football. Look for the Buccaneers to use their day-three picks to address the offensive side of the ball that, for the most part, looks pretty set in stone.
