With the twentieth pick in the 2011 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select...

Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

This group is a bit of a misnomer. Nothing about this team suggested that it had any potential to be anything close to "good". Sure, non-believers may cite that this team didn't beat a team with a winning record, but then they're neglecting the win the Bucs had over the Saints to end the season.

"It didn't count because the Saints were resting starters!"

Did a lot of good for them, right?



Somehow, someway, a team many believed would take a couple of years to reach a winning record, that this team was in another "rebuilding year" in which all basement dwellers perpetually reside until they magically blow people away one season. For the Bucs, that magical season was this past one, the 2010 season where, despite playing in a division that housed two teams with 12 or more wins, still managed a 10-6 record.

That record was managed on the arm of Josh Freeman, in the hands of a young, dynamic receiving corps that includes three rookies in Mike Williams, Arrelious Benn, and the franchise-saving Dezmon Briscoe (We all remember him, right?) as well as a solid receiving TE in Kellen Winslow Jr., and on the legs of mid-season addition LeGarrette Blount. Outside of the OLine, which got decimated by injuries this season that claimed a number of key starters, the Buccaneers kept winning, which speaks to the high level of play their offense produced, especially towards the end of the season.

As a result, the Buccaneers are looking more towards Defense in this draft outside of maybe an occasional pick at Offensive Line to help bolster the line (because really, you can never have too many fat guys). However, one key issue of significance that defense had is highlighted by one number:


That is how many sacks the Bucs had last year. People complain about our DLine and how terribly it produce, especially towards the beginning of the season, but even playing catch-up towards the end, they still beat that number. As a result, the Bucs are obviously looking for that next elite pass-rusher to take pressure off their tandem of rookie tackles in Brian Price and Gerald McCoy as well as open lanes up for supposed pass-rushing wonder Quincy Black.

Given that Aldon Smith, Da'Quan Bowers, Robert Quinn, Cameron Jordan, and J.J. Watt are off the board, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft Ryan Kerrigan.
