    Expert predictions for the draft

    OT Andre Dillard—Houston Texans (2 votes) There are plenty of players who are good fits with particular teams in this draft. Just about any of this year's top edge-rushers are an excellent fit for the Oakland Raiders, who managed just 13 sacks in 2018. Ditto for those same pass-rushers and the New York Jets. Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson is one of the more NFL-ready prospects we've seen at his position in recent years—as adept at blocking in the run game as he is reeling in passes. Hockenson was one of two players who received multiple votes in this category, and the fact that those votes came with two different teams is a compliment to his skill set. But it only takes one number to understand

    Bucs' stalwart McCoy absent from start of voluntary mini-camp

    As the Bucs opened their voluntary mini-camp, one fixture of the organization was noticeably absent. Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy — who remains under contract with the team but appears headed for a trade or getting released — was one of five players on the current roster who wasn't at Tuesday's workout at the Advent Health Training Center. "It's up to him," Bucs coach Bruce Arians said. "We have open arms. If he wants to be here practicing with us, great. He's on contract and part of the team. That's a player's decision." Asked whether McCoy was told not to attend the mini-camp, Arians said that wasn't the case, adding, "I don't know who in the hell said that." McCoy is working out on his own

James Wicker singled to left center to bring in Garrison Ferone and Jalen Davis to knot the game 2-2.

    The Arizona Cardinals look set to pick No 1 overall, instead of trading down, with the power to spark a new era under head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Quarterback Kyler Murray is under consideration, though Phoenix is far from certain to be the Oklahoma prospect’s landing spot in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants are all nervously waiting, hoping to pounce should a team ahead make what they may perceive as a mistake.

    Buccaneers news: Cameron Brate expects to be cleared for training camp

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate is expecting to be ready for training camp, according to Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com. Brate underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip back in January and had been dealing with the injury for quite some time before finally opting to have it remedied. “Yeah, personally I wish I would have played better last year and everything like that, but I just don't think I was able to prepare for the season the way I wanted to dealing with the injury,” Brate said. The 27-year-old, who signed a six-year contract extension with the Buccaneers last year, played in all 16 games this past season, hauling in 30 receptions for 289 yards and six touchdowns.

    NFL Nation mock draft has a wildcat coming to Tampa Bay

    One more day. That's all that stands between us and the 2019 NFL Draft, which means that after months of speculation, we'll finally see where this new crop of talent lands. And even though there is just over 24 hours to go before the big event, it doesn't mean we have to stop looking at mock drafts, right? NFL Nation has theirs now, and while they, like many other mocks, have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers going defense at the five spot, they have a name other than the LSU linebacker Devin White, who by all accounts seems like the favorite to land in Tampa. They foresee outside linebacker Josh Allen from Kentucky going to Tampa Bay, and Jenna Laine explained why Allen might be a better option for the
