This is the new leader for most interesting pick. While I am sure BigBlueShoe's reasoning makes sense, I just don't see this happening. For the sake of my mock draft I think it is a great selection, as I do not want to just have mock draft that resembles all the others. Of course, if Tampa does select him, then I can lay claim to having it called.
#23 Tampa Bay: LenDale White, RD, USC
Many think Tampa Bay will draft a defensive player in the late first round, but that has never been how Tampa Bay works on draft day. Jon Gruden had Zach Crockett and Tyronne Wheatly in Oakland. In Tampa, he has Alstott, but he has had a rash of injuries recently, and he's getting up there in age. LenDale White would fit in with Gruden's offense in an Alstott-type role. He's strong, physical, and can punch it in around the goalline. Last year, thne-rokkie Carnell "Cadillac" Williams broke down a bit. A backfield featuring Williams and White would take the pressure off QB Chris Simms.
