    Woah. Thanks for sharing that info. I was just reading that he completed his rehab stint and was hoping for the best. I'm surprised to hear that he was small and weak. When I met him during the Cardinals game, he was totally jacked. Hopefully he cuts back on the pancakes and gets back into shape. If not, he'll be cut and we'll be 7 million dollars richer.

    So I am involved in 2 mock drafts. The one on PSD is still going but the other one died out shortly after I picked.

    The first 18 picks in both drafts were different but affected the Buccaneers pick the same way.

    PSD Mock Draft
    1.Browns: Myles Garrett DE Texas A&M
    2.49ers: Marshon Lattimore CB Ohio State
    3.Bears: Jamal Adams SS LSU
    4.Jaguars: Soloman Thomas DE Stanford
    5.Titans: Jonathan Allen DE Alabama
    6.Jets: Malik Hooker FS Ohio State
    7.Chargers: Marlon Humphrey CB Alabama
    8.Panthers: Leonard Fournette RB LSU
    9.Bengals: Mike Williams WR Clemson
    10.Bills: Corey Davis WR Western Michigan
    11.Saints: Derek Barnett DE Tennessee
    12.Ravens from Browns from Eagles: John Ross WR Washingtom
    13.Cardinals: Reuben Foster ILB Alabama
    14.Eagles from Vikings: Dalvin Cook RB FSU
    15.Colts: Haason Reddick LB Temple
    16.Browns from Ravens: O.J. Howard TE Alabama
    17.Redskins: Malik McDowell DT Michigan State
    18.Titans: Gareon Conley CB Ohio State

    Other Mock Draft
    Cleveland (1-15) - Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
    San Francisco (2-14) - Jamal Adams, S, LSU
    Chicago (3-13) - Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
    Jacksonville (3-13) - OJ Howard, TE, Alabama
    Tennessee - from Los Angeles Rams (4-12) - Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama
    New York Jets (5-11) - Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
    Los Angeles Chargers (5-11) - Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
    Carolina (6-10) - Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
    Cincinnati (6-9-1) - Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
    Buffalo (7-9) - Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
    New Orleans (7-9) - Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee
    Cleveland - from Philadelphia (7-9) - Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
    Arizona (7-8-1) - John Ross, WR, Washington
    Philadelphia - from Minnesota (8-8) - Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
    Indianapolis (8-8) - Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
    Baltimore (8-8) - Haason Reddick, OLB, Temple
    Washington (8-7-1) - Malik McDowell, DL, Michigan State
    Tennessee (9-7) - Jalen "Teez" Tabor, CB, Florida

    As you can clearly see there are some names at positions that are in play who go in both Mocks.

    S: Hooker, Adams
    WR: Williams, Davis, Ross
    TE: Howard
    RB: Fournette, Cook

    One could call this a worst case scenario, just in terms of options. It is certainly less than ideal but there is still tons of talent available.

    I tried to trade down, but was unsuccessful, it would be smart for Tampa to in real life, if this situation occurs.

    There was 1 QB taken before 19 in one mock and 0 in the other. The more QBs that go early, the more talent gets pushed down the board.

    My board based on my own evaluation of the talent was this.
    1. Jalen "Teez" Tabor CB Florida, #1 CB in my opinion based on watching his entire college career.(Went at 18 in one Mock but available in the other)
    2. Quincy Wilson CB Florida, #3 CB behind Tabor, Lattimore.
    3. Christian McCaffery RB Stanford, #3 RB behind Fournette, Cook. I prefer him as a slot WR but he really wants to be a starting NFL RB.
    4. Jabrill Peppers S Michigan, not a fan myself but a lot of people are and he may be the most confident and charismatic player in the draft, something Licht loves.
    5. David Njoku TE Miami, widely considered the #2 TE, but not Top 20 player in my opinion, more in the 25-35 range to me.

    If I had to keep going I would add some of the OTs in the mix (Bolles or Ramczyk) maybe the best interior OL Forrest Lamp or something but I stopped at 5 because why bother.

    So I selected Tabor in one mock and Wilson in the other, right?

    Wrong, I personally would have if I was the GM but I tried to put myself in Jason Licht's shoes.

    I chose Christian McCaffery RB/WR/PR/KR Stanford in both Mocks Drafts.

    I did this for a couple reasons.

    1. "I would swing for the fences with McCaffrey or trade down. Tough spot. There seems to be a decent sized drop off after the top 15. He's not a RB1 but get him 10-12 touches a game and he'll make explosive plays. He's a high risk/high reward player at #19. Great pick IMO."

    This was the advice my buddy gave me and I don't think he's too far off. McCaffery is clearly a great athlete, with amazing production, very consistent, NFL bloodlines and clean as can be off the field.

    2. I don't think it is too big of a stretch to see Jason Licht and Dirk Koetter decide this way given the same available options. They could go CB and make the team better in both the short term and long term or they could believe adding a RB like McCaffery gives the offense another huge threat.

    3. I honestly want to see what else I can do with the rest of the Draft if the 1st round pick is a RB. Can I find a #1/#2 TE to pair with Brate? Can I get a C to compete with Hawley to start? Can I get a #4 WR who can develop into a #2? Can I upgrade at S? Can I find a starting Sam LB? Can I find a nickel CB and Grimes eventual replacement?

    How many can I get done and where does the draft leave me hanging? It's an interesting experiment at the least.

    few highlights to pull out of this.

    1. Looks like we are looking at RB's in the middle rounds (3-5)

    2. We are looking at the top 3 TE's in the draft.

    3. Where the hell are all of the Safety's?

    Obviously a trade down would be the best case in this scenario. Out of your list, I like Q. Wilson the best, and I would also have T. Charlton high on that list as well.

    This list is not all inclusive. I know we've worked out Budda Baker and Obi Melifonwu for example.

    It may be that the Front Office does not view Safety as a major need with Wilcox, Conte and Tandy. We have to wait and see.

    2017 Blowout Mock Draft
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    1. Christian McCaffery RB/WR/PR/KR Stanford
    2. Marcus Williams FS Utah
    3. Bucky Hodges TE Virginia Tech
    4. ArDarius Stewart WR Alabama
    4. Samaje Perine RB Oklahoma
    5. Devonte Fields OLB Louisville
    5. Corn Elder CB Miami
    6. Isaiah Ford WR Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Dobbs QB Tennessee
    7. Grover Stewart DT Albany State
    Traded #50 for #60, #133, #211
    Traded Doug Martin for #146

    If we ended up with something like this id be extremely happy:

    1) OJ Howard
    2) Melifonwu/Williams/Evans
    3) Hunt/Foreman

    4 to 7 - filling other pressing needs including:

    WR, OL, LB, CB

    So after taking Christian McCaffery at 19 as I explained before I had some options at 50.

    I was primarily interested in WR, TE or S, I was also keeping an eye out for a CB, LB or clear BPA.

    My best options at 50
    Zay Jones WR Eastern Carolina
    Cooper Kupp WR Eastern Washington
    Marcus Williams S Utah
    Evan Engram TE Ole Miss
    Tyus Bowser LB Houston
    Caleb Brantley DT Florida

    If I ranked them 1-6 without taking into account need or ability to address later in draft it would have been
    1. Brantley
    2. Jones
    3. Engram
    4. Williams
    5. Bowser
    6. Kupp

    With taking need and ability to address later into account it was
    1. Brantley
    2. Williams
    3. Engram
    4. Jones
    5. Bowser
    6. Kupp

    Basically Brantley was my BPA but didn't fit a major need. I feel Safety drops off a lot sooner and sharper than Wide Receiver or Tight End. I can get a suitable TE and WR in Rounds 3 and 4 but S would be tougher.

    I explored trade down possibilities as I did at 19 and this time found a suitable offer. The Dallas Cowboys at 60 wanted to move up for Carl Lawson, they offered their 4th round pick to move back 10 spots in Round 2. I got them to add a 6th to the deal.
    Bucs send 50
    Cowboys send 60, 133, 211

    This will give more flexibility in the middle rounds and I figured most of my 6 guys would still be there.

    Caleb Brantley and Evan Engram were selected between 51-59.

    I'm left with
    1. Williams
    2. Jones
    3. Bowser
    4. Kupp

    I debated back and forth on Jones and Williams. Zay is an awesome WR prospect but I know I can find quality there.

    I went with Marcus Williams FS Utah.

    He's got the range and ball skills to be a good starting FS, his weaknesses are clear but can be worked on and he won't be forced to start immediately.

    This sets me up with
    1. Christian McCaffery RB/WR/PR/KR Stanford
    2. Marcus Williams FS Utah
    3.
    4.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    6.
    7.
    I should be able to find quality players with my next 3-4 picks and then add some depth.

    I'm pretty sure Ivery had M. Williams 2nd round in every mock I've posted so far. I think that would be a great pickup for us. If we could trade out, add a 4th rounder, and still pick him up, that would be insane.

    I still would have went T. Charlton in the 1st though.

    These are the guys that I would love to get....not really in any order:

    Oj Howard TE
    Melifonwu S
    Budda Baker S (emulating his game after Ronde Barber)
    Chris Godwin WR
    Shaheen TE (66 280 lbs running a 4.8s 40 small school kid)
    Zay Jones WR
    Bowser LB
    Kareem Hunt RB
    Michael Roberts TE

    If some how we could land 2-3 of these guys I think they would fill in some key holes. Perhaps we could trade down and pick up some extra 2nd and 3rd rounders.

    They continuously update it and have those visits included. It was the best resource I could find on the matter, and an easy way to get an idea of who the Bucs are looking at.

    i really think JL is a person of habit. I think he will move down from pick #19 in the 1st if there is a trade partner and pick up a 3rd or 4th. He will us that pick and our 3rd round #84 or 4th round #125 to move up back in the second. This seems to be what he likes. First and second round picks are more likely to help the team sooner than later. If he would trade down in the first or second to pick up some picks i would be happy. Hell trade back in the 1st and second. this draft is deep and i think we are sitting in the perfect spot for teams in the bottom of the round that want to leap frog others for who they want.

    Updates Mock Draft results:
    1. Christian McCaffery RB/WR/PR/KR Stanford
    2. Marcus Williams FS Utah
    3. Bucky Hodges TE Virginia Tech
    4.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    6.
    7.

    Analysis: Major drop off at TE after Hodges. Njoku gets a lot of love, Hodges is taller, heavier, runs a faster 40, has a better vertical and broad jump. Hodges also had more receptions, yards and touchdownS in college. I'll take it at pick 84 in Round 3.
