7-Round 2014 NFL Mock Draft for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Bucs have certainly been busy in free agency so far, in the little over two weeks that the process started for the NFL in 2014.

That being said, I don't think the Bucs are done just yet in free agency under the new regime of general manager Jason Licht and head coach Lovie Smith.

The Bucs can also bring in a big haul in the 2014 NFL draft.

Currently, as the the Bucs ponder what to do in the 2014 NFL draft, the team only has five draft picks. They lost the fourth- and sixth-round picks due to trades.

I would expect the Bucs to trade back at some point to try and get back those picks in this draft. I believe I have found the perfect trading partner as well.

That would be the Green Bay Packers. The NFL announced on Monday that the Packers will receive two compensatory picks (third and fifth round) for the losses of wide receiver Greg Jennings and outside linebacker Erik Walden to free agency last year.

That being the case, the Bucs and Packers could make a trade in the third round of the 2014 draft, in which the teams would trade spots in the draft order of that round, plus the Bucs would receive a fourth-round pick and a sixth-round pick in return.

That would give the Bucs seven picks in this draft—a draft that NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock says is the deepest one he has seen in 10 years.
