Daniel Jeremiah (February 8): RB Alvin Kamara, Tennessee
Charley Casserly (February 11): DE Charles Harris, Missouri
Lance Zierlein (January 29): DT Malik McDowell, Michigan State
Bucky Brooks (January 26): DE Derek Barnett, Tennessee

CBS Sports
Rob Rang (February 13): CB Sidney Jones, Washington
Dane Brugler (February 13): WR John Ross, Washington

ESPN: Mel Kiper (January 19)
DE Taco Charlton, Michigan
“Charlton plays with good leverage for his height (6-5) and has active hands and an incredible wingspan. I'm curious what he'll measure at the combine. He can play on his feet, too, which means he could fit in a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme. The Bucs took Noah Spence in the second round last year, and he improved in their 4-3 as the season progressed (5.5 sacks). Charlton would be a great pick.”

ESPN: Todd McShay (February 8): TE O.J. Howard, Alabama
The Buccaneers have bigger needs than tight end -- defensive line, safety and wide receiver among them -- but Howard, my No. 12 overall player, is the best value on the board. He was the best player on the field all week at the Senior Bowl, showing great athleticism for a guy who measured just over 6-foot-5½ and 249 pounds.

USA Today: Luke Easterling (February 6)
EDGE Solomon Thomas, Stanford
"There are bigger needs at receiver and in the secondary, but value is king and you can never have too many talented, versatile defenders up front."

Chris Rolling (February 12): CB Marlon Humphrey, Alabama

Pewter Report (Rebruary 6)
TE O.J. Howard, Alabama
"In PewterReport.com’s latest SR’s Fab 5 column, Scott Reynolds featured Howard, Alabama’s talented tight end, and how he could be great fit for the Buccaneers. That’s why, at pick No. 19 here, that’s who they get. Bucs fans should brace themselves, however. Though Howard is a tight end, and that position can be sort of hit-and-miss when it comes to draft position, Howard is very talented and will be coveted. He might not make it to pick No. 19. If he does, expect him to be relatively high on Jason Licht’s draft board."
