The final pick that the Buccaneers have in this draft (the team is also due to receive a fourth-round compensatory pick) is used on Yasir Durant.
Durant would provide some depth for the interior of the offensive line that the Buccaneers do need. The trio of Ali Marpet, Ryan Jensen, and Alex Cappa was able to play at an extremely high level in 2019 except for when Cappa was injured.
To remedy this, bringing in Yasir Durant would give the Bucs some depth at a position that they desperately need. Durant is likely not superstar, but he has the potential to provide some consistency if any major injuries were to occur.
It also certainly helps Durant’s draft stock that he is likely able to play multiple different positions across the offensive line making him a more than capable backup, which is often all that a team can hope for when using a sixth-round pick.
As a whole, this mock draft is all about making the most of a bad situation. The Bucs would certainly be in a hole with a younger quarterback and regardless of what anyone says, Philip Rivers is not an upgrade over Jameis Winston at this point in their careers.
Players like Adam Trautman and A.J. Dillon would be great picks in any other mock draft in the rounds they were taken so expect to see their names mentioned much more in the future.
In the end, this draft was able to address the three biggest areas of need as the situation entailed, but the validity of this mock will become much clearer as the Buccaneers announce their decision for the future of Jameis Winston.
