After Jameis Winston cleaned up his mistakes in week two, the Buccaneers may no longer need to use a high draft pick at quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Our weekly mock draft is back, and this time it comes after a Tampa Bay Buccaneers victory over the division rival Carolina Panthers on primetime Thursday Night Football. In last week’s edition, we had the Buccaneers taking Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm with the eighth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after a fourth quarter meltdown by Jameis Winston.

How a week can change the landscape of the potential draft as Winston went out to rebound by posting the second highest grade on the team according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required). He posted just one touchdown pass against the Panthers, but the field was wet and more importantly anyway, he did not turn the ball over for the Buccaneers.

The main issue with this Bucs’ team still remains along the offensive line as Winston was sacked three times. While one of the sacks that came at the hands of rookie Brian Burns of the Panthers, the regression of veteran right tackle Demar Dotson is real, and left tackle Donovan Smith continues to struggle.

Here is the week three edition of Mock Draft Monday for the Buccaneers, looking way ahead to the 2020 NFL Draft.
