What’s up, Bucs Life fans? It’s Kyle Riddle author of Riddle’s Rundown, and here’s my 3 round mock draft.
1. Mekhi Becton: RT Louisville
With the departure of current RT Demar Dotson, the Bucs need some serious help along their O Line. Louisville’s Mekhi Becton would fit in perfectly along the right side of the Bucs offensive line for the foreseeable future if taken at 14 overall. At 6’9″ Becton is a dominant run blocker and being 369lbs doesn’t hurt either; but he is more than just a big body, he is incredibly light on his feet even playing LT for a season at Louisville. Becton has the run blocking that Ronald Jones so desperately needs and the pass blocking Jameis Winston has always wanted.
2. Marlon Davidson: Auburn 3-4 DE
The game is won in the trenches, and if ur looking for a DL that can not only stop the run but also wreak havoc in an opponent’s offensive backfield, then Davidson is ur man. Last year during his senior season, he had 29tackles, 19solo, 11.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, and 1 FR. At 6’3″ 278lbs, he can rotate and play anywhere on the defensive line, but he’s best at 3-4 DE with his pass-rushing skills. He also sets the edge extremely well against the run, which is important if Ndamukong Suh leaves via free agency.
3. Kyle Dugger out of small school Lenoir-Rhyne.
It’s no secret the Bucs safety play has been atrocious for years now, and teams have begun to exploit it. Jordan Whitehead and Mike Edwards played ok last year, but at times they also gave up several big plays.Dugger has been moving up the draft board once teams figured out that he’s a freak athlete, and he would fit in perfectly with the rest of the Bucs young DBs. Dugger is expected to run a sub 4.4 40 yard dash and pass the 40inch mark on his vertical jump. Don’t let the fact this kid went to a division two school because he can ball.
