Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2013 Mock Draft: Updated Full 7-Round Prediction

Now that the Buccaneers have had nearly a week to make free agency decisions, it sounds about the right time to update their draft board to better reflect their needs.

The signing period began five days ago and so far the Bucs have added Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson, tight end Tom Crabtree, receiver Kevin Ogletree and linebacker Jonathan Casillas to the mix.

Conversely, they've lost defensive end Michael Bennett, defensive tackle Roy Miller and offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood to Seattle, Jacksonville and Washington, respectively.

The losses of Bennett and Miller, as well as the addition of Goldson, have had a direct impact on the probable course of action come draft weekend.

Couple that with a recent claim by Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report that suggests the Bucs will not use the 13th overall pick in next month's draft on a cornerback because, according to Reynolds, only Alabama CB Dee Milliner carries a first-round grade in the eyes of the team's staff.

So, where exactly does that leave the Bucs?

If the claim by Reynolds holds true, conventional wisdom suggests the Bucs would invest No. 13 on the defensive line or on a top-tier linebacker, both of which are positions of need despite their recent signing of Casillas.

At the very least it means an already anxious fanbase will be on pins and needles come Thursday, April 25.

To that point, here is an updated seven-round mock draft that reflects their offseason actions thus far.
