WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan
"Mike Evans is officially a star, but fellow receiver Vincent Jackson is an unrestricted free agent, and the Bucs don't want a situation in which defenses can just assume they'll be doubling Evans. Davis won't be running at the combine because of a small injury, but he's safely in Round 1 and would be a good value in this range (my buddy Todd McShay had him at No. 5 in his mock draft last week). Feed Jameis."

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 15)
S Budda Baker, Washington
"With the offensive weapons off the board, the Bucs take advantage of a deep class of defensive playmakers here. I've seen Michigan's Jabrill Peppers mocked to the Bucs at this spot, but while Baker may lack that level of elite athleticism, he's a much more refined player, both in run support and coverage. Call him undersized if you want, but he's the kind of player the Bucs desperately need flying all over the field."[

Pewter Report (February 6)
TE O.J. Howard, Alabama
"In'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."
