NFL Mock Draft 2011: Is Allen Bailey the Missing Piece for the Buccaneers?
Allen Bailey Becomes A Buccaneer
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be consistent on draft day. They are going to take who they feel will help the team make the playoffs in 2011.
The Buccaneers need two defensive ends, so drafting Adrian Clayborn in the first round of this mock only was step one.
By drafting Allen Bailey in the second round, the Buccaneers now have two elite pass rushers on their defense under the age of 25, both of whom should develop fairly quickly.
The Buccaneers do not need a quarterback, LeGarrette Blount still is a bit of a question mark but his rookie season was good, and the corners are okay for the moment.
Bailey brings speed to his side of the field, and the opposing quarterbacks now have to keep their eyes on both sides of the field to see where Clayborn and Bailey are going to be.
If both develop as projected, opponents are going to have a real hard time scheming to block both guys when the heavy blitz package is put in.
With these two guys, the Buccaneers may vault over the New Orleans Saints and challenge the Falcons directly for the division in 2011.
