WCG Mock Draft - Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Malcom Kelly
Wide Receiver
ANALYSIS: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers seem to have a bunch of question marks but the internets all seem to agree that the Bucs want a brand new shiny wide receiver. I can’t really blame them, of course, as they need to get younger in that position. I mean, I’m not calling Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard old but I hear that in the new Indiana Jones movie, Harrison Ford is on a race to find their high school year books.

Sadly, former #1 pick Michael Clayton has nearly disappeared after his nearly 1200 yard rookie year. Having said that the Bucs are looking WR.

Well, who should they pick. In almost every draft I have seen, they predict the Bucs to take Cal wideout DeShaun Jackson. Which is who I was going to select until I realized something. In almost every one of those drafts, Jackson was the second, or sometimes third receiver taken. And guess what? In our draft, not one WR is off the board yet. So that has made this so much harder. As much as I think Jackson has a lot to offer, I don’t see him listed as the #1 receiver on anyone’s board. So that is why the Buc take:

Malcolm Kelly of Oklahoma.

Kelly, while lacking ‘blazing’ speed is being looked at as a Larry Fitzgerald type game breaker. Big and strong, with great hands, he is the very model of what makes great wide receivers in the NFL. He’s a great athlete and an inviting target for whomever Jon Gruden decides to run out there as quarterback. And a receiver like this can really help a quarterback by offering the ability to go get jump balls. I liken him to fellow Sooner Roy Williams. And it took Williams a little while to find his groove, I see Kelly doing the same, eventually stepping up as a great #1.
