J. Howard Jersey ,29commentsLuke Easterling weighs in with his post-combine four-round mock draftESTShareTweetShareShareDraft Wire Predicts Two Trades for Buccaneers on Day One of NFL DraftBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsIn Luke Easterling’s mock draft attempt following the conclusion of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans get to see a lot of action involving their favorite team as Jason Licht orchestrates not one, but two trades in the first round alone.First, with Kentucky’s Josh Allen and Alabama’s Quinnen Williams off the board, Tampa Bay trades back with the Denver Broncos to pick ten so John Elway can grab his quarterback of the future in Drew Lock from Missouri.Three potential Bucs targets go off the board between five and ten as Brian Burns lands with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Greedy Williams heads to the Detroit Lions and Jawaan Taylor goes to the Buffalo Bills to play tackle for the quarterback Josh Allen.So, at pick ten, the Bucs do what you would expect and trade back again! This time, Licht moves back to the fifteenth pick and swaps spots with the Washington Redskins who then select Kyler Murray from the Oakland A’s - oops - Oklahoma Sooners.LSU linebacker goes to the Cincinnati Bengals one pick later (boo) and Montez Sweat leaves to the Green Bay Packers at pick twelve.Yet another potential Bucs target is off the board at pick fourteen to the Atlanta Falcons, who take Houston’s Ed Oliver. So, Tampa Bay is back on the clock, and they trade again! Just kidding, finally the Bucs take a player, and they get Alabama Crimson Tide tackle (?) Jonah Williams.Whew! Talk about a busy day one. But in the end, the Buccaneers come away with Williams who I assume will be playing right tackle in this scenario as Easterling does in fact identify him as a tackle. Taking it one step further, it’s likely a pick such as this one would lead to the release of veteran Demar Dotson.Day two doesn’t go long before Easterling predicts another trade, as the Bucs swap their 39th pick for San Francisco’s 36th and take Florida’s Jachai Polite. The EDGE rusher hurt his draft stock in Indianapolis showing up ill-prepared and taking some missteps during his media sessions - and apparently in team meetings as well.It doesn’t doom him too badly though, or maybe Easterling thinks he’ll make up ground at his pro day, and Licht floats a second-rounder getting Todd Bowles some pass rushing help.With their second, second-round pick, Tampa Bay grabs Boston College interior lineman Chris Lindstrom and come back five picks later to take Penn State’s Amani Oruwariye (CB).Surprisingly, that was it for the second round, but of course there’s another round to go through on day two. Making no waste of the third, Licht takes Ohio State’s Parris Campbell and Arizona State’s Renell Wren, which makes me smile for reasons listeners of the Locked On Bucs Podcast probably know better than readers at Bucs Nation. With the 96th overall selection in the NFL Draft, and concluding their day two, the Bucs select running back, Benny Snell from Kentucky. The fourth round is much less exciting for fans of this franchise as the team finally grabs a linebacker to help our Lavonte David and Kwon Alexander (who signed prior to the draft) and Kendell Beckwith (who was cleared fully by medical staff!). A lot of action, many trades and even some picks nets the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:OT, Jonah Williams (Alabama)EDGE, Jachai Polite (Florida)OL, Chris Lindstrom (Boston College)CB, Amani Oruwariye (Penn State)WR, Parris Campbell (Ohio State)DL Justin Evans Jersey , Renell Wren (Arizona State)RB, Benny Snell (Kentucky)LB, Vosean Joseph (Florida)And this is just in four rounds! Double the picks equals double the fun, and there’s basically nothing Licht could do in rounds five, six and seven to make me not love this draft class. Here’s hoping Easterling is typing this having come back from the future. By the way, the Bucs specific predictions about players like Kwon Alexander and Kendell Beckwith are my own fun additions to this mock draft review. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fresh off of the bye week and are preparing to face their division rival Atlanta Falcons. There were rumblings from fans and members of the media that firing Defensive coordinator Mike Smith after the Chicago game might have been the team’s best decision moving forward. It’s hard to argue against that, as the Buccaneers are once again considered the worst defense in the NFL this season and possibly through four games, the worst in NFL history. Ultimately, Head coach Dirk Koetter made it clear that the problems with the defense are more than just Mike Smith, so he decided against firing him. Let’s be honest, no guy right now within the Buccaneers organization could come in and fix this defense overnight. It just wasn’t going to happen that way. The Falcons are off to a 1-4 start this season, but make no mistake, their offense is still extremely dangerous and will pick Tampa Bay apart on Sunday if adjustments aren’t made from the first four games, but more specifically Chicago. The bye week came at a perfect time for Tampa Bay. A lot of times, teams don’t enjoy the early bye week, but after the Chicago game, this team needed nothing more than a week off. Smith attested to that during his Wednesday press conference. After the performance in the first half against Chicago, it literally felt like we were watching a pop warner football team play defense. The Bears did whatever they wanted on nearly ever play to the tune of 5 Mitchell Trubisky touchdown passes in the first half. Mike Smith made it clear that it isn’t the end of the world. “The sky is not falling, I can assure you, it felt like it was crumbling on top of us when we walked off the field in Chicago,” Smith said. That’s an anomaly and as a defense we are committed together to right that ship and not play football like we played there.”The bye week came at a perfect time for Tampa Bay. A lot of times, teams don’t enjoy the early bye week, but after the Chicago game, this team needed nothing more than a week off. Smith attested to that during his Wednesday press conference. “Bye weeks are a time to set the pause button and when your able to set the pause button your able to look back and collaborate where your at,” Smith said. There really hasn’t been many bright sports through the first four games for this Buccaneers defense, but the one player who stands out every week and every snap has been Jason Pierre-Paul. Give credit where credits due, Jason Licht did a fabulous job getting one of the best defensive ends in football for just a third-round pick. “Jason is such a competitive guy. We want to have a rotation, but it’s hard to get him off the field because he wants to play every snap,” Smith said. “It’s just amazing and he’s great with the younger guys, he is a guy who likes to collaborate and talk about things and I think it’s going to help us in the long run.” Mike Smith needs to make adjustments to this defense and he needs to do it fast. It’s simply unrealistic and unfair to expect the offense to score 30+ every week so you can win football games. If the defense doesn’t drastically improve, not only will Smith be looking for a new job, but Dirk Koetter will also be on his way out the door. It’s on you guys. Make the necessary moves.
