Pewter Report’s Scott Reynolds

No. 27 – Buccaneeers – Penn State OLB Arnold Ebiketie
Ebiketie is an especially arduous employee, who performs the run and cross equally nicely. Though he’s nearer in measurement to Bucs outdoors linebacker Shaq Barrett, he has the lengthy wingspan of a 6-foot-5 edge rusher. He’s a bodily cross rusher with loads of velocity and juice to get to the quarterback. Ebiketie is on the Senior Bowl attempting to enhance his draft standing as a fringe first-to-second-round choose.

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Penn State WR Jahan Dotson
Dotson has excellent palms and route-running abilities. The Bucs may lose Chris Godwin in free company, and Dotson may slide proper in to switch his fellow Penn State wideout. He doesn’t have the identical measurement/energy as Godwin, however provides extra over-the-top velocity.

NFL Community’s Bucky Brooks

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Florida CB Kaiir Elam
The Bucs want an athletic nook with A+ cowl abilities on the island. Elam holds up nicely in one-on-one matchups and matches Tampa’s model as an aggressive man-to-man defender.

Professional Soccer Focus’ Sam Monson

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Penn State WR Jahan Dotson
The Buccaneers can be with out Antonio Brown subsequent season and may have a battle on their hand to retain Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski, leaving the ranks unexpectedly naked at receiver. Mike Evans remains to be an elite participant on the surface, however Dotson brings some shiftiness and a probable position within the slot on the subsequent degree. Dotson solely lined up inside on round 25% of his snaps in faculty, however his ability set is ideal for that inside alignment.

CBS Sports activities’ Ryan Wilson

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Ohio State WR Chris Olave
Chris Godwin, who was on the franchise tag, tore his ACL final month, and whereas the Bucs can nonetheless franchise him, Mike Evans, Scotty Miller, Tyler Johnson and Jaelon Darden are the opposite wideouts presently on the roster. Now in a post-Tom Brady world, whoever finally ends up underneath middle in 2022 may use one other weapon. And Olave, top-of-the-line route runners in faculty soccer final season, is precisely that.

CBS Sports activities’ Josh Edwards

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Georgia DT Devonte Wyatt
Tampa Bay has a ton of potential free brokers, and nobody is aware of what will occur with Rob Gronkowski and/or Tom Brady. The Buccaneers are probably the most risky scenario to foretell this offseason as a result of they might go in quite a lot of instructions. On this state of affairs, they take Wyatt to switch Ndamukong Suh and retain the inside defensive position as a energy of this staff.

Alabama WR Jameson Williams and Cincinnati CB Coby Bryant

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Alabama WR Jameson Williams
Free company would possibly go away the Bucs with extra fast wants elsewhere, however even when Chris Godwin is retained (as anticipated), don’t be shocked if they aim a receiver right here. Williams is rehabbing from a torn ACL, however as soon as he’s again to full energy, he may show to be an enormous steal in an explosive offense.

No. 60 – Buccaneers – Georgia DT Devonte Wyatt
No. 91 – Buccaneers – Michigan State RB Kenneth Walker III

Professional Soccer Community – Ian Cummings

No. 27 – Buccaneers – LSU CB Derek Stingley, Jr.
Like Williams, Derek Stingley Jr. may slide down the board a bit on account of his harm historical past. His well being has been a priority not too long ago. However when wholesome, Stingley is a bona fide top-10 expertise within the 2022 NFL Draft.

He’s an elite athlete with torrid closing velocity, and the quick toes and seamless hip fluidity to match receivers off the road. Like his counterpart Sales space, Stingley’s a high-level playmaker on the catch level. The worth for the Buccaneers is just too good to cross up on this 2022 NFL Mock Draft.

No. 60 – Buccaneers – Texas A&M RB Isaiah Spiller
The Buccaneers may try to carry a working again or two again in free company, however they need to have some good worth alternatives late in Spherical 2. Together with his elusiveness, inventive instincts, and bodily edge, Isaiah Spiller may go off on this offense.

No. 91 – Buccaneers – LSU G Ed Ingram
No. 130 – Buccaneers – Texas A&M DL Michael Clemons
No. 169 – Buccaneers – Iowa State TE Charlie Kolar
No. 247 – Buccaneers – Iowa State DT Eyioma Uwazurike

Professional Soccer Community’s Dalton Miller

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Ole Miss QB Matt Corral
Matt Corral is an much more tough projection than Willis. Bodily, there isn’t a QB within the class I really feel higher about. He has the precise form of elusiveness and athleticism to make him a weapon together with his legs. He’s additionally naturally correct with a giant arm.

There’s only one drawback. I’m unsure what he appears to be like like in a pro-style offense. Faculty soccer coaches are paid to win video games, not develop skills for the NFL. Lane Kiffin took that to coronary heart as a result of there was hardly ever a professional learn requested of Corral. The offense was suffering from RPOs. Placing him in Spherical 1 of any 2022 NFL Mock Draft is a raffle.

However, I actually get pleasure from eager about Corral’s potential in Bruce Arians’ system. I believe an intermediate sport is his greatest match given his arm expertise. The Buccaneers will most likely must be affected person and produce him alongside slowly, however he could also be compelled right into a beginning position after Tom Brady’s retirement.

No. 60 – South Carolina EDGE Kingsley Enagbare
No. 91 – North Carolina State RB Zonovan Knight

Walter Soccer’s Charlie Campbell

Florida CB Kaiir Elam

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Florida CB Kaiir Elam
The Bucs want cornerback assist, and it is going to be an excellent larger challenge if Carlton Davis isn’t re-signed. In 2021, Elam recorded 29 tackles, 5 passes damaged up and an interception. He performed nicely in 2020, recording 39 tackles, two interceptions and 11 passes damaged up. The 6-foot-1, 187-pounder was improbable as a freshman, flashing critical ball abilities regardless that he had a part-time position. Elam has good top and size with quickness. He may stand to fill out his body, however contemplating he’s solely a real junior, he has the time to do it. Together with his ability set and upside, he may explode.

No. 60 – Buccaneers – Cincinnati WR Alec Pierce
The Bucs have some younger expertise at receiver, but when the staff lose Chris Godwin in free company, it could make sense to take one other playmaker within the 2022 NFL Draft. Pierce had his greatest season in 2021, racking up 52 catches for 884 yards and eight touchdowns. Large receivers with the senior’s ability set of being massive, quick, and productive don’t final lengthy within the NFL drafts, and Pierce has particular capability for the following degree. After a quick first-step, Pierce has a second gear to speed up down the sphere and stretch defenses excessive. Pierce exhibits good method as a receiver as nicely and makes use of his measurement to win. Together with his measurement/velocity mismatch capability, he could possibly be a late first-round or second-round steal within the 2022 NFL Draft. Some staff sources examine him to Jordy Nelson popping out of Kansas State.

No. 91 – Buccaneers – Missouri RB Tyler Badie
Tampa Bay has its group of veteran backs coming into free company and will use extra long-term expertise. Badie (5-8, 198) is a troublesome runner who has energy and quickness in a compact construct. On high of working nicely, he displayed wonderful receiving capability for the third straight season. His capability to contribute on third downs may make him a strong No. 2 rotational again within the NFL, and he would possibly become an even bigger position. In 2021, Badie averaged six yards per carry for 1,604 yards and 14 touchdowns. He additionally made 54 receptions for 330 yards and 4 touchdowns. Badie had excellent receiving manufacturing in 2020 (28-333-2) and 2019 (32-356-5).

Walter Soccer’s Walter Chrepinsky

No. 27 – Buccaneers – Georgia DE/DT Travon Walker
Ndamukong Suh received’t be round for much longer, so the Buccaneers may go after a defensive position with this choose. Travon Walker received off to a sizzling begin through the 2021 season. Walker has nice measurement and athleticism.

No. 60 – Buccaneers – TCU CB Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson
Cornerback is the one weak group on Tampa Bay’s roster. Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is simply 5-9, however he has nice protection abilities as a quick and athletic prospect.
