The 2013 NFL season is over. Time to plan for 2014.
Like so many other teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers spent the past month preparing for the offseason and the 2014 NFL draft.
With new head coach Lovie Smith taking over and the hiring of general manager Jason Licht, a new team philosophy is coming to Tampa.
The Bucs have questions at a number of positions. It is unclear whether quarterback Mike Glennon possesses the skills necessary to compete at the NFL level. The Bucs have yet to find an answer to their floundering pass rush.
While Smith and Licht are sure to explore the free-agent market with approximatley $17 million in cap space, the path to long-term success in the NFL starts with the draft.
Unfortunately, the Bucs' options are very limited. They have only five picks on account of trading their third-round pick for cornerback Darrelle Revis and their sixth-round pick for tackle Gabe Carimi.
This mock draft was assembled based on player scouting, team needs and likely player availability. Each pick will include scouting profiles and profile videos where available.
