Look , Alabama running back Josh Jacobs is a heck of a player. He could very well be the No. 1 running back in the 2019 NFL Draft. But at the same time, what are we doing here?and with the No. 5 overall pick, he has the Buccaneers selecting Jacobs. Here’s what Jeremiah had to say about the pick:If this is a projection aimed to bait people into overreacting, then MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. No but seriously, this is silly, right? Tampa Bay does have a need at running back, sure, but I wouldn’t classify it as a need that needs to be filled with a top-five pick in the draft. For one, the Bucs already have a solid back in Peyton Barber. Even if you’re not thrilled with the idea of entering the 2019 season with Barber as the No. 1 guy, both the free agency and draft classes for running backs are plenty deep this year. Not only that , but I’m not sure the team is wanting to completely give up on Ronald Jones II just yet. By spending the No. 5 pick on a running back, you’re pretty clearly done with Jones. Signing a veteran to complement Barber and compete with/push Jones would seem to make more sense.Even with all of that aside, the idea of the Bucs spending their top-five pick on someone that isn’t an offensive tackle, defensive end or cornerback just doesn’t feel right. Those needs are much bigger than the one at running back, even with some potential additions in free agency. A number of different guys have been mocked to the Bucs at No. 5 pick so far this month. Here’s where Jeremiah had some of those guys landing:OT Jawaan Taylor— No. 9 (Buffalo Bills)LB Devin White— No. 10 (Denver Broncos)CB Greedy Williams— No. 16 (Carolina Panthers)OL Jonah Williams— No. 18 (Minnesota Vikings)*CB Deandre Baker— No. 23 (Houston Texans)*While Jeremiah has Williams as “a solid offensive tackle prospect,” he thinks he has “All-Pro potential at guard.” The Bucs could undoubtedly use him at either position, considering the state of that unit.Jacobs will surely be a great addition for someone this spring, and if Tampa Bay was one running back away from competing for a Super Bowl, this mock would make a little more sense. But that’s just not where the Bucs are right now. Draft season is in full swing these days, with new mocks being released or updated nearly every day. It’s always an exciting time, though it tends to drag once the draft finally gets closer. The fun part Youth Jameis Winston Jersey , of course, is that it seems like every mock has a different selection in the early stages of the offseason.That brings us to Walter Football’s mock, which was updated Thursday. With the No. 5 overall pick, that mock has the Buccaneers selecting offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor out of the University of Florida. Here’s the explanation:Disregarding the dig at Vita Vea, this pick seems realistic for Tampa Bay, as it would address a big-time area of need. Some mocks have the Bucs going with Alabama tackle Jonah Williams at No. 5, but Taylor is someone to keep an eye on. His blend of size and mobility is surely intriguing for a team that has struggled to field a competent offensive line for a number of years now.Exactly where the former Gator would play seems to be debatable. Walter Football mentions him as an upgrade at left tackle, which would mean the end of Donovan Smith’s time in Tampa (unless he moves to the right side, though that seems unlikely). Luke Easterling of The Draft Wire says Taylor could be an instant starter at right tackle, but could transition to left tackle if he needs to. The guys over at The Draft Network seem split on the issue. Joe Marino thinks Taylor is “extremely comfortable” on the right side and wouldn’t “mess with it,” though he goes on to say the big man could play left tackle and “would probably be fine at guard.” Kyle Crabbs notes Taylor’s positional diversity , but Jon Ledyard says he might project better as a guard because he “doesn’t have the explosiveness or range to stop pure speed.”To me, the fact that there are differing opinions on where Taylor would fill in just serves as a testament to his versatility. The Bucs could use a guy like that, especially considering the only guys that appear to be locked into their spots on the line right now are Ryan Jensen (center) and Ali Marpet (left guard). Though I haven’t extensively looked at Taylor, I’d say he could be a strong option for Tampa Bay.On a different note, I’d say the possibility of trading down is something that can definitely be talked about, especially with how this mock played out. Considering the first four teams picked non-quarterbacks, the Bucs might be sitting in a spot to move down and grab some extra picks if a quarterback-needy team wants to jump up in front of the Giants (who have the No. 6 pick). General manager Jason Licht has shown a tendency to make that exact move, so it’s definitely something to look out for.I know it’s only the first weekend in February, but what are you feeling right now, Bucs fans? Are you taking Jonah Williams or Jawaan Taylor? Someone else? Trading down? Sound off and let us know which way you’d go if you were Licht.
