2016 BRB NFL Mock Draft: With the Ninth Pick, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select...

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling,

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

With the eighth pick of the 2016 BRB user mock draft, the Buccaneers– led by our very own bigfatdrunk again – add an offensive tackle to protect their young, talented, quarterback Jameis Winston.

There may not be a team as talent bereft as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Aside from QB, WR, and RB - too heavy of an emphasis on skill positions - you can look at every level of Tampa Bay's team and see problems.

Defensively, there are maybe three players you can point to and say they're above average: Gerald McCoy, Robert Ayers, and Lavonte David.  Otherwise, the talent is simply depressing, somehow far outplaying their 18th rank by DVOA.

Offensively, they have a shiny new QB to add to talented skill players Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans, and Doug Martin.  The team did add J.R. Sweezy to help on the offensive line...for some reason as he's pretty terrible.

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mock GM, I've got to learn from what I saw last year.  I'm not particularly enamored with any of the edge rushers at this spot as that would be a strong possibility.  So if I can't get to the QB, I'm going to keep Jameis Winston clean.  Thus, the the Bucs select Ronnie Stanley, OT, ND, to man Winston's blindside.
