There’s an excellent chance the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stay away from the mayhem that is the trade market during the draft. However, nothing is impossible. So if Jason Licht and company choose to be active, the Buccaneers may treat their fans, and the NFL public at large, to some draft day fireworks.

Despite what media folk may try and tell you due to the offseason perception of the incoming quarterbacks, this is actually looking to be a very deep draft pool of future players. It’s especially true in the area the Bucs need most: the trenches.

It almost seems like foreign territory now, since a year ago at this time the Buccaneers were pretty much drafting for present depth and possible future starters. That’s what happens when you’re able to bring back all 22 starters and some change as defending Super Bowl champions.

Fast forward to now, and the Bucs have obvious needs due to key veteran departures. Of course, there’s an excellent chance that Licht chooses to stay put and let the players fall how they may, but that’s not nearly as fun during #MockSzn.

So without further ado, here is the latest full seven-round Tampa Bay Buccaneers mock draft if they choose to be active on the trade market during the draft and try and get the best players possible to fill their roster.
