Reader’s Mock Draft – Tampa Bay Buccaneers are On the Clock


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are next up in our Reader’s Mock draft as we push forward creating our very own Mock Draft with only weeks left before the real deal.  The Bucs were one of the big player’s in last season’s free agency when they added a few big name players like Vincent Jackson and Carl Nicks.  They haven’t been nearly that active this offseason and it looks like they’ll try to improve on last season’s 7-9 team through the draft. 

The Bucs had a disappointing season in 2012 and look to bounce back.  They seemed to have built up a pretty solid offense, so I’m thinking they might be leaning on defense in the draft.  A cornerback or defensive end could be high on their priority list. Then again, could they reach on a tight end or add another weapon at wide receiver?
