With the 261st overall pick, the Buccaneers select Isaiah Graham-Mobley  – LB (Boston College)

Another Eagle of Boston College? Seems unlikely, but not impossible. With their second pick in the seventh and final round and their sixth and final draft pick, the Buccaneers take a swing at a potential diamond in the rough.

Isaiah Graham-Mobley is more likely than not to be available in the seventh-round pick for the Bucs. That being the case, he could be a potential steal. He is the nephew of former All-Pro and two-time Super Bowl champion John Mobley with the Denver Broncos and suffices to say, the genes got passed down.

Graham-Mobley would obviously be a long-shot starter, especially with his history of injuries in college, but the Bucs love linebackers who welcome the chance to be a menace on special teams, like Grant Stuard for example. Graham-Mobley would welcome that chance. What sets Graham-Mobley apart from other prospects is his character, as he’s a hugely popular locker room presence and the consummate professional,  even in college, becoming absolutely acclaimed for his leadership.

Despite the injuries, Graham-Mobley does have starting experience, as well as special teams, and would fit right into the culture the Buccaneers have built. Graham-Mobley also impressed at his pro day, benching for 24 reps ad flashing a 3.6″ vert with a 10.2 broad jump and 4.40 short shuttle that has his tock up. He is absolutely worth the flyer.

While we or anybody else don’t know what the new Jason Licht-Todd Bowles administration will bring, as is the case with literally any team, before the draft, that doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to read some tea leaves before the show begins. Besides, it could be fun to come back to this slideshow and point out everything that was wrong.
