NFL first 11 picks mock draft with the Kirk Cousins factor
By Brian Miller
7: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Selection – Joshua Jackson – CB – Iowa
The Buccaneers have a quarterback, they have wide-receivers and they have running backs. What they don’t have is players who can block. Quenton Nelson very well could be the pick here but the Buc’s need secondary help as well and seven is a little high for a guard. Even a guard of Nelson’s talent level.
Tampa Bay could also be a trade partner for QB needy teams who want to jump up to get one of the remaining signal callers. There is really only one remaining and that is Baker Mayfield but is Mayfield a player that a team like the Cardinals or the Bills would jump into the top 10 for? Probably not at the moment.
Jackson is a starter from day one and not much separates him from Fitzpatrick. Tampa needs to find a solution in their division which is becoming very pass happy and while they need offensive line help, they really need a secondary that can shift a game.
