The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their answers for free-agency. Here’s a look at our first 7-round mock draft for the Bucs following these signings.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were able to make several key moves during the free-agency period this spring.

Here’s a look at some of free-agency the highlights for the Buccaneers:

As we head into draft season, here’s a look at my first 7-round Mock Draft for the Buccaneers following these moves in free-agency, using The Draft Network’s draft simulator.

Scouting Report. Andrew Thomas. 14. 48. Pick Analysis. OT. Georgia. player

In the first-round, we’ve got the Buccaneers coming away with their biggest desire: A top-four offensive tackle.

Thomas is a guy who has the ability to come in and make an impact right away and would be a really nice pick-up at that No. 14 spot, considering the demand for offensive tackles near the top of this draft.

player. 48. Scouting Report. Ohio State. Pick Analysis. RB. J.K. Dobbins. 45

J.K. Dobbins‘ elite explosiveness and absolute play-making ability make him hard to pass up in the second-round. Dobbins is the perfect fit for this system as he can catch the ball out of the backfield and can be an excellent pass-blocker. He’s the most explosive running back in this draft and would be a great piece to add for that Buccaneer offense.

California. Ashtyn Davis. player. 48. S. Pick Analysis. 76. Scouting Report

Perhaps going safety here is questionable, considering that Tampa Bay brought back Andrew Adams. The Bucs trust the youth at the position already and there may be bigger needs elsewhere, but the promise and upside of Ashtyn Davis– as well as the fact that Tampa still has questions in the back-end- make him hard to pass up here in the third round.

48. player. WR. South Carolina. Bryan Edwards. 117. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

With the Buccaneers passing on bringing back Breshad Perriman, they’ll definitely need to address the WR position in the draft. Bryan Edwards is a big body with plenty of athleticism. He’d be a nice, big target for Tom Brady who could mesh nicely with that current WR core.

Missouri. 139. 48. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. IDL. Jordan Elliott. player

Even with Ndamukong Suh back in the fold, the Bucs need to add depth on the defensive line. A talent like Jordan Elliott in the fourth-round would be an absolute steal and a perfect piece to learn under Suh over the next year.

Scouting Report. EDGE. 161. 48. Pick Analysis. LSU. Michael Divinity Jr.. player

Just like the previous pick, the Buccaneers want that front-seven to be the deepest and most talented group in the NFC South. Well, if you add two pieces like Elliott and Michael Divinity Jr. to the fold, you certainly have plenty of depth and young talent moving forward.

James Morgan. 194. player. Scouting Report. QB. Florida International. 48. Pick Analysis

Tampa Bay will be looking at the quarterback class during this draft and James Morgan is probably the hottest name in terms of depth in the draft. He’s perfect in terms of measurables and has played in air-raid style offenses throughout his career.

Next. Is Jacob Eason the future for the Buccaneers?. dark

Morgan has plenty of talent and might be a nice late-round addition to learn under Tom Brady and potentially develop into much more at some point later in his career.
