In Round 4, the Bucs see some value they cannot pass up, so they move up a few picks and make a deal with the New York Giants.

After moving up 11 slots, the Bucs take a running back with one of the highest ceilings in all of this draft class.

. . Braelon Allen. Braelon Allen. 4. player. Braelon Allen. . 493. RB

Wisconsin's Braelon Allen is a tank. He is built like a truck, standing 6-foot-2, 245 pounds. However, when you watch him run, he runs a whole lot faster than a dude that size should be able to run. He straight-up hauls the football. When he gets out in open space, and he hits second gear, good luck stopping him.

Allen's size and strength make it incredibly tough on defenders trying to tackle him. He is able to work his way through piles, as well as easily stiff-arm his way to the next level. In a class without a first-round talent at the position, Allen could take advantage of flying a bit under the radar as a mid-round prospect that could climb to Day 2 throughout the draft process.

Adding Allen tot he back field and giving the team a one-two punch with two very different backs in he and Rachaad White could add a totally different dimension to the offense.
