Harris runs with energy however could make guys miss regardless of a 230-pound body. Add in his capability to catch the ball and his Tuscaloosa pedigree, and Harris will probably be NFL-ready the day he arrives in Tampa Bay. With 1,466 yards on the bottom plus one other 425 as a receiver and 30 whole touchdowns in 2020, Harris is a no brainer if he’s nonetheless on the board and makes the Bucs offense much more harmful.” – Mark Prepare dinner

Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Miami OLB Jaelan Phillips Bucs’ Third Spherical Decide (From Cowboys): North Carolina RB Michael Carter Bucs’ Third Spherical Decide: Wisconsin-Whitewater C-G Quinn Meinerz Bucs’ Fourth Spherical Decide (From Cowboys): East Carolina OT D’Ante Smith Bucs’ Fourth Spherical Decide : USC DT Marlon Tuipolotu Bucs’ Fifth Spherical Decide: West Virginia DT Darius Stills Bucs’ Seventh Spherical Decide: BYU WR Dax Milne Bucs’ Seventh Spherical Decide: Florida State OLB Janarius Robinson “One of the best cross rusher within the 2021 draft shouldn’t nonetheless be on the board when the Bucs decide within the first spherical, proper? Properly, previous off-the-field questions with Phillips from his time at UCLA, in addition to a stint away from the sport and a historical past of concussions may scare groups off. However for my cash, Phillips’ expertise is definitely worth the threat, particularly given how he appears to have matured at Miami and the dedication it has taken him to get again in soccer form after a 12 months off. Phillips has all of the instruments and traits to turn into a future star, and he’s heading to the right locker room to assist get him there.”

Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Alabama DT Christian Barmore Bucs’ Second Spherical Decide: Miami Edge Quincy Roche Bucs’ Third Spherical Decide: North Carolina RB Michael Carter Bucs’ Fourth Spherical Decide: Purdue ILB Derrick Barnes Bucs’ Fifth Spherical Decide: Grambling State G-C David Moore Bucs’ Sixth Spherical Decide: Baylor OLB William Bradley-King Bucs’ Seventh Spherical Decide: South Alabama ILB Riley Cole Bucs’ Seventh Spherical Decide: Florida WR Trevon Grimes
“An enormous man and eats up double workforce blockers regularly, Barmore is a strong defensive lineman that may win with the bull rush but additionally has fast fingers to make the preliminary push. He’ll must develop some extra cross dashing strikes, however with Tampa Bay’s teaching employees, he’s in a great place. What’s nice is that Barmore performed his finest soccer within the large moments, dominating within the school soccer playoff and championship video games. He’s the eventual successor to Suh, and he’ll have an ideal mentor coming into the league.” – Matt Matera

Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Alabama RB Najee Harris Bucs’ Second Spherical Decide: Oklahoma OLB Ronnie Perkins Bucs’ Third Spherical Decide: Texas A&M Bobby Brown III Bucs’ Fourth Spherical Decide: East Carolina OT D’Ante Smith Bucs’ Fifth Spherical Decide: TCU ILB Garrett Wallow Bucs’ Seventh Spherical Decide: Houston WR Marquez Stevenson Bucs’ Seventh Spherical Decide: Indiana S “Many individuals anticipated the Bucs to draft a working again excessive in final 12 months’s draft, with Jonathan Taylor on their radar. However Tampa Bay in the end landed offensive sort out Tristan Wirfs within the first spherical and security Antoine Winfield Jr. within the second spherical – each instantly changing into full-time starters. This 12 months, the Bucs have far much less wants on the roster and can forego buying and selling out of the primary to land Harris, who leaves Alabama as some of the full backs within the draft. He’s able to working between the tackles, outdoors of the tackles and is a pure pass-catcher out of the backfield. Harris’ manufacturing matches his expertise as he racked up 1,466 dashing yards and an insane 30 whole touchdowns over 13 video games in 2020. And the most effective factor for Harris is that he received’t have an excessive amount of on his plate as he enters the NFL. Ronald Jones II continues to be a succesful starter, who can deal with a majority of the workload on early downs. James White is a seasoned third-down again who can deal with many of the passing downs, permitting Harris to slowly and comfortably ease his method into extra snaps because the season wears on. A game-changing again is a necessity the Bucs have had for some time now, they usually lastly fill that want with Harris.” – Taylor Jenkins
Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Miami Edge Jaelan Phillips Bucs’ Second Spherical Decide: Clemson WR Amari Rodgers Bucs’ Third Spherical Decide: Stanford QB Davis Mills “With Jason Pierre-Paul growing old, the Bucs will probably be searching for a lift alongside the defensive position. Phillips struggled with sturdiness throughout his time at Miami(and UCLA) however gives the mix of size, get-off velocity and adaptability to warrant a big gamble by the defending champs.” – Rob Rang
Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Alabama DT Christian Barmore Bucs’ Second Spherical Decide: North Carolina LB Chazz Surratt Bucs’ Third Spherical Decide: Memphis RB Kenneth Gainwell “Ndamukong Suh, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Steve McLendon will all be free brokers. Most analysts thought-about Barmore a possible first-rounder on upside alone. He gave everybody a glimpse of that top ceiling by dominating Notre Dame and Ohio State — two of the most effective offensive strains within the nation — within the School Soccer Playoffs. He would create a dominant duo for the champs within the center with Vita Vea.” – Eddie Brown
Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Alabama DT Christian Barmore “The Tremendous Bowl champs have a number of high-priced free brokers able to hit the market. A kind of is Ndamukong Suh. Who’s to say which of Tampa’s free brokers truly return? But, including the most effective defensive sort out within the draft in Christian Barmore into the equation to conclude the primary spherical is tough to cross up.” – Matt Williamson
Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Clemson RB Travis Etienne “The Bucs have some issues to type out in free company, together with what to do with Playoff Lenny Fournette. A defensive sort out or an edge rusher is smart right here, however Travis Etienne is coming off back-to-back robust seasons, a lights-out professional day, has elite contact stability and is a pass-catching risk popping out of the backfield.” – Ryan Wilson
Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: RB Travis Etienne “Whether or not Etienne, Najee Harris or each get the nod, it’s exhausting to think about a working again class this proficient being shut out of Spherical 1. This decide would observe swimsuit from 2020, when the defending champion Chiefs took Clyde Edwards-Helaire to shut out the primary.
“Greg Auman calls working again one of many Bucs’ top-three points proper now, as Leonard Fournette heads to free company and Ronald Jones nears a contract 12 months. Etienne, a 215-pounder who nonetheless has breakaway velocity, would flip that place right into a power once more.” – Chris Burke
Bucs’ First Spherical Decide: Alabama DT Christian Barmore Barmore lacks consistency on tape, however his high-level flashes are elite. If there’s a workforce that I belief to maximise Barmore’s potential and assist him discover consistency, it’s Tampa Bay, who has a necessity on the defensive position. Barmore can play a number of positions up entrance and his mix of athleticism and adaptability permits him to make dynamic performs behind the road of scrimmage.
