Day #3 for the Buccaneers
The Buccaneer offensive line is as good as it has even been, but they need to remain proactive. Ryan Jensen, Ali Marpet, and Donovan Smith have massive outstanding contracts, and Wirfs isn’t far behind. Green would serve as a great insurance policy for the interior of the line in the event of an injury or a departure for any reason.
Typically, seeing the same position targeted in a mock draft is laughable, but this was another scenario that was too good to pass up. Toney is much like his college counterpart in Oweh except slightly less athletic and way more raw.
Toney is another player that would come in based on projections and potential, but is anyone sold on Anthony Nelson enough to turn away an OLB4 that could transition to three down the road? The front office needs to make the moves to keep every position improving, and Nelson hasn’t done enough to inspire complete confidence in his game up until this point.
It is also worth noting that a fifth-round pick on this team will already have a difficult time making the final roster anyway, so Toney helps even if he just comes in to push Nelson and learn on the practice squad.
The Buccaneers are usually good for at least one wide receiver per draft class, and Austin Watkins is the type of player that could challenge Justin Watson for the fifth spot in the depth chart after a great career at UAB.
Rochell is a confident, press-man corner that could thrive in a defense coached by Todd Bowles. The Buccaneers could lose some of their depth corners during the coming months, and Rochell fits the bill as a replacement with some sneaky upside with the right coaching.
Ryan Griffin has likely played his last snaps with the Bucs based on his most recent contract, and Buechele works as a cheaper option to wear the hat on the sideline on game days.
