Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7-Round Mock Draft

News, NFL

The Bucs are looking to reinvent themselves after losing Tom Brady to retirement and experiencing an early exit in the playoffs in 2022. They need help on the offensive line, defensive line, quarterback, tight end, and safety. This Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7-round mock draft will hit on all of their needs, as well as a few picks that fall into the “best player available” category.

The Bucs have picks 19, 50, 82, 153, 175, 179, 181, 196, and 252. With nine picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, they are in a good position to add multiple players who could make an early impact.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7-Round Mock Draft

Round 1 (No. 19 overall)

Pick: Brian Branch, S, Alabama

Brian Branch is listed as a safety but likely plays slot corner at the NFL level. The Bucs need help in that aspect and Branch only missed four total tackles in his career out of 174 total attempts.

Round 2 (No. 50 overall)

Pick: Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse

The Bucs’ offensive line needs a lot of help at every spot outside of Tristan Wirfs at left tackle. Bergeron is a three-year starter out of Syracuse, who is 6’5, 318 pounds. He also has the ability to play both left and right tackle.

Round 3 (No. 86 overall)

Pick: Dorian Thompson-Robinson, UCLA, QB

This pick would shock the NFL Draft community, but Dorian Thompson-Robinson is a skilled athlete that can be the perfect developmental quarterback. Thompson-Robinson ran a 4.56 40-yard dash and tested well in the broad jump. Baker Mayfield was signed to be the starter but has had marginal success since entering the NFL.

Round 5 (No. 153 overall)

Pick: Juice Scruggs, Penn State, C

The Bucs are currently slated to start Ryan Jensen at Center who really struggled last year in limited snaps. They can’t cut him after signing him to a 3-year, $39M contract in 2022, but they could in 2023 with no cap hit. At 6’3, and 301 pounds, Scruggs is a bit undersized but could slide into a variety of spots for the Bucs.

Round 5 (No. 175 overall)

Pick: Jonah Tavai, San Diego State, DL

Vita Vea and Logan Hall are slated to start at DT this year. Hall was a second-round pick last season but really struggled as a rookie, ranking 120th out of 127 defensive linemen. Tavai racked up 12 sacks last year and 10 the season prior at San Diego State. He is a bit smaller at 6’0, 290, but can give opposing teams problems when rushing the passer.

Round 6 (No. 179 overall)

Pick: Jaxson Kirkland, OG, Washington

At 6’7, and 321 pounds, Kirkland has the body of a starting NFL guard. He also didn’t allow a single sack in 2022 in 491 pass block snaps.

Round 6 (No. 181 overall)

Pick: Josh Whyle, Tight End, Cincinnati

The Bucs need talent at the tight end position, and Whyle could be a great fit. He was routinely mocked outside the top 200 during the season but has cracked the top 200 in most mocks at this point. At 6’6, 248 pounds, and a 4.69-second 40-yard dash, he is in a good spot to be a high-upside player at the position heading into the draft.

Round 6 (No. 196)

Pick: Brodric Martin, DL, Western Kentucky

Martin is a run-stuffing nose tackle that could create a massive interior for the Bucs. He is 6’5, 337 pounds and forced 19 pressures in his final year with the Hilltoppers.

Round 7 (No. 252)

Pick: Quindell Johnson, S, Memphis

After picking a defensive back in the first round, the Bucs follow it up with another with their final pick. He was a three-year starter at Memphis and had four interceptions as a senior. He also forced six incompletions.
