In the world of NFL mock

Messagede laiyongcai92 le Sam Mai 18, 2019 8:20 am

In the world of NFL mock draft’s , seven-round versions are the ultimate glimpse into the potential future of the league’s 32 franchises.Luke Easterling of The Draft Wire recently published a full slate of selections, and since he took the time to construct it, we’ll take time to break it down.1st-Round: DL, Ed Oliver - Houston CougarsPhoto by Tim Warner/Getty ImagesThe rumblings about Gerald McCoy’s departure from Tampa Bay are getting louder and more direct. Following a series of sub-tweets and cryptic Instagram posts by McCoy, there are those pointing at sources inside the franchise indicating a split is imminent.It would be a little unorthodox to see a franchise spend their first-round draft pick on interior defensive linemen twice in consecutive years, but the potential for Oliver to be a disruptive presence up front helps to support the hype.I’m still not a fan of taking Oliver with a Top-5 selection, but a departure by McCoy certainly helps this idea gain traction if it happens.Notable Players Still Available After Pick: OT, Jonah Williams (Alabama); EDGE, Clelin Ferrell (Clemson); CB, Byron Murphy (Washington)2nd-Round: CB, Amani Oruwariye - Penn State Nittany LionsPhoto by Justin K. Aller/Getty ImagesAmani Oruwariye is widely considered the third-best cornerback in this year’s class behind Washington’s Byron Murphy and LSU’s Greedy Williams. His attendance at the Senior Bowl gave him a shot at sticking his nose into the Top-2 conversation, but alas, it didn’t happen.He struggled to stand-out against expectations and was limited in the game due to an injury. His knee shouldn’t keep him from the combine or pro day festivities, but missing out on his chance to shine under pro tutelage had to be frustrating.Still, it didn’t hurt his stock. It just didn’t help. Cornerback is an area of need for the Buccaneers, and Oruwariye its what fans have wanted and what we expect new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles to target in his perimeter defenders.The Penn State standout is 6’1 with solid size and should take well to an aggressive defensive scheme.Notable Players Still Available After Pick: LB, Mack Wilson (Alabama); DL, Charles Omenihu (Texas); OL, Chris Lindstrom (Boston College)3rd-Round: OT, Andre Dillard - Washington State CougarsPhoto by Loren Orr/Getty ImagesMany Bucs fans think the team should jump on an offensive tackle early on in the NFL Draft, but here in Easterling’s mock Jason Licht waits until the third-round to bolster the unit.After adding Alex Cappa to the interior of the offensive line in the third-round of the 2018 draft, adding a left tackle this year fits. There are a few questions on the line though, so the new coaching staff in Tampa Bay is going to have to figure out a way to make the best of the pieces they have, and one or two potential rookies being added to the mix.Notable Players Still Available After Pick: CB, Isaiah Johnson (Houston); S, Amani Hooker (Iowa); CB, Rock Ya-Sin (Temple)4th-Round: OL , Beau Benzschawel - Wisconsin BadgersPhoto by Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesPerhaps drafting back-to-back linemen will make the fans happy who were previously upset about the team passing on the group in the first two rounds. Perhaps not.Benzschawel plays a position of need as the team obviously needs help at the guard position opposite of Ali Marpet.However, nobody should expect a fourth-round selection to step in as a day one starter. Stranger things have happened, but I don’t see this Wisconsin Badger being the exception to the rule.Caleb Benenoch and Alex Cappa won’t be too threatened here, so we’ll have to see what happens in free-agency.Notable Players Still Available After Pick: TE, Foster Moreau (LSU); WR, Andy Isabella (UMass); QB, Tyree Jackson (Buffalo)5th-Round: RB, Miles Sanders - Penn State Nittany LionsPhoto by Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesDidn’t get as much work due to the presence of Saquon Barkley, but has talent of his own to add to an NFL roster.Sanders was a five-star recruit when he left for college, and if there’s a coaching staff that could help him get the most out of his natural ability it’s Bruce Arians’ collection in Tampa Bay.With Ronald Jones awaiting his chance to make his sophomore season much better than his first, Sanders will certainly look to take advantage of a wide-open running back race with the Bucs.Notable Players Still Available After Pick: WR, Parris Campbell (Ohio State); RB, Bryce Love (Stanford); WR, Penny Hart (Georgia State)7th-Round: LB, Darrius Harris - Middle Tennessee State Blue RaidersChristopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsHarris (not pictured) represents a draft pick spent on a position group with some debate about the need - or lack thereof - for the Buccaneers.Lavonte David tops the list of Bucs linebackers with Kwon Alexander a solid co-captain of the group and Kendell Beckwith pending his return from a season-costing ankle injury suffered in the 2018 off-season.With Beckwith already out, and Alexander suffering a torn ACL mid-season, the depth of the linebacker group was tested throughout the season.Adding a young prospect to develop who can also contribute immediately to special teams if needed, is a smart move.Waiting until the seventh-round or not to do so is all going to depend on whether or not the team can secure Alexander’s services for 2019 and beyond.Notable Players Still Available After Pick: OL, Nick Harris (Washington); QB, Trace McSorley (Penn State); WR, Terry Godwin (Georgia) Well, if you made it through that game, congratulations. You’ve had ten years shaved off your life from the stress that was induced. The Buccaneers were dominant in the first half, then fell apart in the fourth quarter leading to overtime where Chandler Catanzaro went from goat to hero after hitting a 59-yard field goal to give the Bucs a 26-23 win over the Cleveland Browns.It wasn’t pretty. There were some positives, some negatives, and a lot of frustrations. Let’s dive right in to the first victory Pick Six since week two.Six Topics Suitable For Conversation1.) Jameis Winston Was Pedestrian - Although he had plenty of splashy plays - especially with his legs - Winston was very average against Cleveland. He started off on fire then couldn’t find his groove again after throwing that first interception. He had no touchdown passes, but did run one in early on. And yes Chris Conte Jersey , he drove the Bucs down the field at the end of regulation when Catanzaro missed a 40 yard field goal that would’ve won it. However, he turned the ball over three times and it has to stop. I think Winston is the future of this team, but seven turnovers in ten quarters is inexcusable. The only turnover you can point to that really wasn’t his fault was the fumble where Donovan Smith was flat out beat. Cincinnati and Carolina are next up on the schedule and if Winston doesn’t take care of the ball, it’ll be a couple of long afternoons.2.) Time To Catanzar-GO - Yeah, I get it. He hit a 59-yard field goal to win the game. That doesn’t take away the fact that he missed an extra point and a 40-yard attempt in regulation, either of which would’ve won the game without the stress of overtime. There’s no excuse anymore. Two weeks in a row an early missed extra point had a dire effect on the game later on. Catanzaro has missed three extra points and two field goals on the season, yet is making $3.75-million guaranteed in the first year of his three year deal and the Bucs need to eat the dead money and get him out of the building. Yes, the kicking woes won’t end any time soon - Catanzaro or not - but just like Mike Smith, if you know it’s not working there’s no need to stick with it.3.) Tough Day For Kwon Alexander - Kwon was playing his best game of the season by far, but when he blitzed and had a shot at Mayfield on 4th-and-2, Kwon planted his leg and crumbled. He didn’t return to the game and the fear is a torn ACL. He’ll undergo an MRI on Monday, but it doesn’t look good. Once Kwon left the game, the Browns’ offense really opened up and started to click. Despite some disappointing games thus far, you can’t deny the talent Kwon brings to the defense. Losing him could prove catastrophic moving forward.4.) Hats Off To The Defense - Even though they gave up 14 points in the fourth quarter, allowing the Browns to tie the game, the defense was noticeably better this week than they’ve been over the previous three games. They were making third down stops, sacked Baker Mayfield five times, and kept Jarvis Landry in check all day. They were put in some tough situations thanks to the offense turning the ball over, but stepped up and made plays. Carlton Davis looked good coming back off the injury, Vita Vea was getting into the backfield, JPP and Carl Nassib were consistently getting pressure. If they can continue to play this way - and trend up - then they might just have something with Mark Duffner calling the shots.5.) DeSean Disconnect - It’s mind-boggling, really. DeSean Jackson continues to be a non-factor with Winston at quarterback. The deep ball just isn’t there and Adam Humphries seems to be the guy Winston looks to in the “under six foot tall” category. Winston completed passes to ten different receivers and DJax didn’t see a catch until the fourth quarter. It’s frustrating to see a weapon like DeSean go under utilized and I’m sure it’s even more frustrating for Winston and DJax that they just can’t seem to click. If they don’t figure it out soon, it’s hard to fathom the Bucs bringing Jackson back next season.6.) Is Howard Officially Usurping Brate? - Brate has been Winston’s guy for a while. However, is appears as though O.J. Howard has really taken over as the top tight end target for the Bucs, regardless of the guy under center. And forget the fumble. That wouldn’t cause Winston to stop looking Brate’s way. I think we’re officially witnessing the changing of the guard, so to speak, and Howard - as well as the Bucs’ offense - is going to reap the rewards.Six Numbers To Consider-3 - Bucs’ turnover differential vs Cleveland Shaquil Barrett Jersey , giving them -9 on the season1 - Rushing touchdowns by the Bucs’ running backs this season after Ronald Jones got his first career touchdown Sunday10 - Bucs players who caught a pass 2 - Sacks by former Brown and “Hard Knocks” star Carl Nassib against his former team52 - Pass attempts by Winston, tied for second most in a game in his career21.4 - Browns’ 3rd down percentage, by far the lowest for a Bucs opponent this seasonSix Top Performers6.) Chris Godwin - Five receptions for 59 yards. He just seems to get better by the week. Emerging star in the NFL5.) Jameis Winston - Not his most stellar day, but despite the turnovers he still put the Bucs in position to win at the end of the game, led the team in rushing, and finished with 420 total yards. Gotta clean up those mistakes, though.4.) Carlton Davis - Had a terrible pass interference call, but other than that performed well - especially coming off an injury. Had a few key pass break ups and played Jarvis Landry tough.3.) Lavonte David - A key forced fumble and swarming to the ball from all over the field. Showed exactly why he has that “C” on his chest.2.) Jason Pierre-Paul - Constant pressure, another sack (that gives him six on the season), and still the most consistent as well as the most dangerous player on the defensive line.1.) Carl Nassib - Two sacks against the team that cut him right before the season. Have yourself a day, big fella.Six Players To Keep An Eye On1.) Ronald Jones - The rookie got some solid work, finishing with 28 total yards and a touchdown. Barber appeared banged up in the second half and Monken may be getting more comfortable with an increased work load for RoJo.2.) Adarius Taylor - With Kwon Alexander potentially headed for IR with a knee injury, it’ll fall on Taylor to fill the void at middle linebacker. The Bucs also played Jack Cichy in Alexander’s absence, but Cichy also left with an injury. No word yet on the severity.3.) Carl Nassib - Depending on the severity of Vinny Curry’s injury and with his standout play on Sunday, Nassib is setting himself up for an increased snap count moving forward. He’s certainly becoming a force along the front four4.) M.J. Stewart - Stewart appears to be getting more comfortable in his role and had some great coverage throughout the game Sunday. In fact, all the corners played much better and were in press coverage much more than we’ve seen all season. Something to keep an eye on...5.) Vita Vea - Another guy seeming to get more comfortable in his role, especially after missing so much time with the strained calf. And much like Nassib, he may see a bump in playing time due to Gerald McCoy’s injury. It’s easy to see the flashes of why he was a first round pick, but there’s still some development and growing pains evident as he tries to put it all together.6.) Alex Cappa - A guy that has been a healthy scratch the past few weeks may see his chance sooner than later. Evan Smith and Caleb Benenoch are turnstiles on the right side and the rookie may be getting his shot to take over if things don’t drastically improve in a hurry - especially with the formidable Bengals defensive line on the horizon.Six Super Bowl Bets(As always, this is compiled before the Sunday night game has been completed)1.) Los Angeles Rams - The best team in the NFL, the best team in the city (sorry, Dodgers). The just seem unstoppable.2.) New England Patriots - It’s October and they’re getting hot3.) New Orleans Saints - Stumbled week one, have hit their stride and aren’t looking back4.) Kansas City Chiefs - They’re fun now, still waiting for them to get “Reid-ed”5.) Los Angeles Chargers - The “other” LA team has rattled off four in a row...17.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Man, how dangerous would this team be if they played a complete game on both sides of the ball?Six Final WordsBack To .500, On To Cincinnati
