Buccaneers 7 Round Mock Draft by Kevin R. Albaum

1st Round-2nd Overall (via Detroit)- Nebraska DT- Ndamukong Suh
I see the Buccaneers moving up from the third pick to the Detroit Lion's selection 2nd overall. Here is why........ I believe that the Bucs are locked in Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh, and on the other hand the Lions can save money and still get their franchise left tackle or Gerald McCoy while picking up another draft pick. I expect the deal to be as follows:

Tampa Bay Receives:
2nd Overall Selection

Detroit Receives:
3rd Overall Selection
153rd Overall Selection (5th round via New England for TE Alex Smith)

2nd Round- 35th Overall - FSU CB - Patrick Robinson
Robinson is a great cover corner and yes even though the Bucs play some cover 2, they still play quite a bit of man. Robinson would be a great fit next to Aqib Talib for a long time to come.

2nd Round- 42nd Overall - Maryland OT - Bruce Campbell
The Buccaneers have to get an OT and early this year. Donald Penn and Jeremy Trueblood are both scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next season, and Penn is demanding a trade currently. Behind the two of them there is Undrafted free agents Demar Dotson, and James Lee. Also at Tackle, they have last year's 5th round pick Xavier Fulton. If Aaron Sears ever gets healthy then they will have the opportunity to move Jeremy Zuttah to a tackle spot.

3rd Round- 67th Overall - Miss DE - Greg Hardy
A former highly rated prospect that has fell off due to poor play as a senior. Buccaneers need a replacement for Jimmy Wilkerson who is a UFA and Stylez G. White is now on the wrong side of 30.

4th Round - 101st Overall - Citadel WR - Andre Roberts
A small school receiver with big upside, could be this year's version of a Johnny Knox.

6th Round - 172nd Overall - Florida State S - Myron Rolle
I believe due to a slow 40 time and a year in Oxford that Rolle will fall into the 5th or 6th round. The Bucs are looking for leaders on this young team and Rolle fits that mold.

7th Round - 210th Overall - LSU RB - Keiland Williams
A big running back with decent speed, will add some depth to the bucs backfield.

7th Round - 217th Overall (via Jax for QB Luke McCown) - Newberry WR - Kelton Tindal
Ran a 4.32 forty at his small school's pro day. Has been rumored to run a 4.20 at times. Even being a small school player with not much football experience(only 33 catches as a senior), somebody will draft him on speed alone.

7th Round - 232nd Overall (via Balt for DE Marques Douglas)- FAU QB - Rusty Smith
Legendary coach Howard Schnellenberger said two years ago that this guy would be a first round pick. Well due to a poor senior season and injury concerns, he may now not be drafted at all. However, he is a big quarterback with a high upside and worth a shot this late in the draft.

7th Round - 253rd Overall(Compensatory selection)- East Carolina P - Matt Dodge
With a selection this late in the draft, teams generally select guys they have rated as priority undrafted free agents just to guarantee their rights. The bucs only have Sam Paulescu under contract currently and they want to get him some competition.
