Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Buccaneers:

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (3/9)

19. Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

With this selection, the Buccaneers can flip Tristan Wirfs to left tackle and stay very good at the right tackle spot with the strong and advanced Wright.

ESPN - Todd McShay (3/7)

19. Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

The Bucs could lose Jamel Dean, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Mike Edwards, Keanu Neal and Logan Ryan from their secondary, and they managed just 10 interceptions last season, tied for 24th. Porter might not have the takeaway production just yet after only one pick in college, but he makes plays on the ball, breaking up 11 passes in 2022. I love his instincts and the way he uses his 34-inch length and 6-3 frame to reroute receivers.

NFL.com - Lance Zierlein (3/7)

19. Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

Tampa Bay could very well lose Jamel Dean to free agency. Porter Jr. is a long-limbed press corner who can fit into the Buccaneers' scheme as an early starter.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (3/7)

19. Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Former first-round pick Joe Tryon-Shoyinka remains a work in progress and Shaquil Barrett is coming off an Achilles injury, making pass rusher a realistic possibility with this pick.

Murphy didn't get a chance to show off his impressive traits at the combine, but there aren't many prospects at his position that offer his size, length and athleticism.

USA Today - Nate Davis (3/7)

19. Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland

The Brady-less, capped-out Bucs seem headed for an overhaul. But with DBs Jamel Dean, Mike Edwards, Logan Ryan and Sean Murphy-Bunting all headed for the open market, a talented corner like Banks seems like a logical choice. Measuring 6 feet, 197 pounds, Banks capped his combine with a 4.35 40, 42-inch vertical and a broad jump measuring 11 feet, 4 inches.

The 33rd Team (3/7)

19. Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

Never a full-time starter at Iowa, Lukas Van Ness has the size (6-foot-5, 272 pounds), speed and length to help this defense defend the run as well as get to the passer.

Bleacher Report (3/7)

19. Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

Tom Brady finally calling it quits created quite the ripple effect for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the team's Super Bowl window now slammed shut, difficult decisions had to be made.

General manager Jason Licht is already planning to move on from running back Leonard Fournette, tight end Cameron Brate and offensive tackle Donovan Smith. Of the three, Smith will be the most difficult to replace simply because he plays a premium position, with 124 career starts after being a second-round pick in the 2015 draft class.

Oklahoma's Anton Harrison is a significant athletic upgrade, though.

"Harrison checked all of the expected athletic and measurement boxes at the combine while being one of the youngest prospects in the entire draft," Thorn said of the 21-year-old blocker. "The first-team All-Big 12 performer will have a learning curve in pass protection after playing in an RPO-heavy scheme against a lot of odd fronts in the Big 12 Conference.

"But Harrison has the necessary quickness, length and flashes of skill to play at a solid level early in his career as he gains comfort and confidence playing on an island. Harrison will also add power and a tone-setting demeanor to replace what Donovan Smith brought to the team while adding better movement skills as a lead blocker in space."

Touchdown Wire - Doug Farrar (3/6)

19. Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Not that a list of household chores will make Tom Brady unretire again, but no matter what happens with the Buccaneers' quarterback situation (and it ain't Kyle Trask, folks), let's avoid reaching for a lower-round quarterback at this slot and instead give the Bucs a dynamic slot and outside target in the person of Smith-Njigba. Injuries cost Smith-Njigba most of his 2022 season, but even a cursory look at his 2021 tape shows a receiver with the ability to do just about anything. He'd be a remarkable addition to a receiver group who may have to make up for a lot of helium balls if things stay status quo.

Los Angeles Times - Sam Farmer (3/4)

19. Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech

The Buccaneers could use a running back, but they can find one later. More pressing is their need to ramp up the pass rush.
