Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jalen Ramsey Mocked to the Buccaneers

NFL Media's Ike Taylor believes Ramsey could fall to the Buccaneers at No. 9.

Over the past few weeks, several players have been linked to the Buccaneers and their No. 9 overall pick. Most draft analysts agree the team will be looking for either a cornerback or a defensive end, but the opinions as to which player at those positions has varied.

If there is a player most commonly linked to the Bucs it's former Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves. In the Bucs' most recent Mock Draft Roundup, Hargreaves' name appeared more often than any other players'. Other players commonly linked to Tampa Bay include defensive ends DeForest Buckner, Kevin Dodd and Joey Bosa, along with wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley.

NFL Media's Ike Taylor released his latest mock draft last week and he agrees that the Bucs will select a corner at No. 9, just not Hargreaves. Taylor's mock has former Florida State cornerback Jalen Ramsey falling to the Bucs with Hargreaves going No. 6 to Baltimore.

"The Bucs are looking for a young corner to play Robin right now and then Batman for years to come," Taylor wrote. "Ramsey is that guy. He fits well with Brent Grimes."

Should Ramsey fall all the way to No. 9, the Buccaneers could be landing a player that some analysts feel is not just the best corner in the draft, but the best overall player. Ramsey himself admitted he felt that he was the top prospect in this year's draft class after his Pro Day workout earlier in the week. Several mock drafts have Ramsey going No. 1 overall to the Titans and most have him as the top corner selected.

Should Ramsey land in Tampa Bay, he would be joining former teammate Jameis Winston at the next level. The two won a national championship together at Florida State in 2014.
