Pro Wells – TE, TCU

With the 259th overall selection, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Pro Wells, a tight end out of TCU, making him Mr. Irrelevant.

The Buccaneers have one pick in each round, with the seventh and final round being their only one with multiple picks. They will look at a Horned Frog to round out their draft.

When it comes to the Buccaneers crowded tight end room, there is of course  Gronk who did play in all 16 games in 2020 and scored two touchdowns in the Super Bowl, but his body is a shell of itself. Speaking of which, former first-round pick O.J. Howard can barely stay on the field. He rarely gets the chance to show off his incredible skill and athleticism to reach his ceiling. They also have their security blanket in ol’ reliable Cameron Brate, who recently restructured his contract to be more team-frindly.

With these lingering age and health issues, it wouldn’t be a stretch for the Buccaneers to grab a tight end for good measures. If the raw prospect makes the team and can play, then great. It’s more insurance for the tight ends. If not, it’s the very last pick in the draft so oh well.

With just a few hours to go until the actual draft, this will almost certainly be looked back at with chuckles. For now though, here is your final seven-round mock draft for the Buccaneers to wet the whistle until they are on the clock.
