2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick 7 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – DB Minkah Fitzpatrick Alabama

This is a make or break year for the Bucs. Everyone else in the division made the playoffs last year. They have the tools on offense in Winston and Evans. Unfortunately Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, John Lynch, and Rhonde Barber are not walking through that door. Depending on what happens with trades, this could be Chubb if he is still around, could also be Derwin James. Barkley is also a choice here. Since those guys are taken, best available and filling a need is Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick is a little undersized for what the NFL seeks, but he is not really that much different than James. At 6’0″ 204 Fitzpatrick can play man as a nickle corner or on slot receivers. He is also not afraid to play near the line of scrimmage. Solid instincts and a great tackler, he should make a nice living in the NFL.

Bucs take Minkah Fitzpatrick DB Alabama.
