NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock was asked specifically about what he thinks the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will do with the seventh overall pick. Mayock threw out a couple of names, but in his mind they’re taking a playmaker for their passing game.
“I think Tampa Bay is in a pretty good place to get a really good football player,” said Mayock. “The tight end, Ebron, I think his interest starts right there in Tampa. He’s going to go somewhere between seven and 13. So with Ebron if you have a playmaker to help that offense, I think it would be awesome. They’re in a good place to sit and get a playmaker.”
Other draft prognosticators have Tampa Bay taking Mike Evans in the seven hole, which also makes sense. Knowing the success that Josh McCown had in Chicago’s offense last season with two big wideouts outside in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, one has to think that Bucs GM Jason Licht is at least thinking about trying to duplicate that in Tampa for McCown with Vincent Jackson and another big target. Of course Ebron could fit that role as well.
