In the months leading up to the NFL Draft, Buccaneers.com has published weekly Mock Draft Roundups listing media analysts' predictions for the Bucs at No. 19. Included in the Mock Draft Roundup has been a poll where fans have been able to chime in and make a prediction of their own. With the NFL Draft just days away and more than 30,000 votes cast, the fans' final verdict is in.

With 12,823 votes, or 41 percent of the ballot, the Buccaneers' fans believe the team will draft a running back with their first-round pick. They aren't alone in their prediction, either. Of the 17 writers polled in the final Mock Draft Roundup, seven believe the Buccaneers will select a running back at No. 19.

Florida State's Dalvin Cook is the most popular running back linked to the Bucs, followed by Stanford's Christian McCaffrey.

After running back took home nearly half the votes, wide receiver finished in second in the poll with 21 percent of the ballot. ESPN's Mel Kiper was the only analyst to link the Buccaneers to a wide receiver this week, projecting Washington's John Ross to be the team's pick. Defensive end finished third with 12 percent of the vote, followed by safety with 10 percent. To view the complete results, click HERE.
