Here's your updated weekly roundup of what national media outlets are predicting the Bucs will do in the 2019 NFL Draft.

And while many won't update their mock drafts more frequently until the draft gets closer, CBSSports.com and SB Nation changed their picks for the Bucs since last week.

CBSSports.com went from having the Bucs choose cornerback Greedy Williams and defensive tackle Ed Oliver to defensive end Clelin Ferrell and defensive tackle Quinnen Williams.

SB Nation, on the other hand, updated its pick from defensive tackle Ed Oliver to linebacker Devin White.

See below for an updated list of who the analysts have the Bucs taking in the 2019 NFL Draft.

NFL.com

Maurice Jones-Drew (Feb. 12) – RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama

Jones-Drew: "This pick is solely to help Jameis Winston. Bruce Arians loves to pair a downhill running game with his play-action passing concepts."

Chad Reuter (Feb. 5) – RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama

Reuter: "I expect the Bucs to move down from this spot, eventually picking Bruce Arians' new David Johnson."

Lance Zierlein (Jan. 29) – DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama

Zierlein: "With all the help Todd Bowles needs on defense, the Bucs will be able to go 'best available' on that side of the ball here. Tampa adds an interior rusher to go along with Vita Vea and Gerald McCoy rather than reaching for an edge rusher."

Ryan Wilson (Feb. 25) – DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson

Wilson: "Ferrell was one of the stars of the best defensive line in college football, and he finished his junior season with 11.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss. There may be questions about his flexibility compared to the other first-round pass rushers but there's no denying his Clemson production. In fact, on first downs during the 2018 season, Ferrell ranked among the top-10 players in the country in sacks (5), hurries (12), hits (10), knockdowns (5) and pressures (17)."

Chris Trapasso (Feb. 22) – DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama

Trapasso: "Had Quinnen Williams been gone, Greedy Williams would be the pick here, and I still think he'll be near the top of the Buccaneers' board when that crystallizes closer to the draft. But the Williams from Alabama would form a stellar interior pass-rushing duo with 2018 first-round pick Vita Vea."

SB Nation

Dan Kadar (Feb. 25) – LB Devin White, LSU

Kadar: "Gerald McCoy will be back with the Buccaneers, lessening the need to find a defensive tackle in the first round. That could open the Buccaneers to taking unquestionably the best linebacker in the draft this year. White could be in play even if standout linebacker Kwon Alexander is re-signed. The Buccaneers will use more 3-4 looks under Todd Bowles, and they will need a dependable tackling linebacker with range."

Scott Reynolds (Feb. 1) – LB Devin White, LSU

Reynolds: "Tampa Bay's defense needs more talented playmakers for new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, and White is one of the most athletic and physical defenders in this year's draft. With the likes of Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa, Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams and Kentucky pass-rushing linebacker Josh Allen already gone, the Bucs opt for LSU inside linebacker Devin White for the second straight mock draft on PewterReport.com."
