Are the Buccaneers trying to improve their defensive interior for the second year in a row?

With the 5th pick in the 2019 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select...

Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

The selection and write-up were made by xfl2001fan:

“The Bucs are in bad need of a disruptive force on their defensive line and the 6’2, 287lb Oliver was all of that for Houston last year. Even if the Bucs don’t release/trade Gerald McCoy, a team can never have enough pass rushers and he should fill out the rotation nicely. If they do let McCoy go, then Oliver will should help create a formidable interior with Vita Vea (who came one pretty well last year as the season progressed). Having veteran Jason Pierre-Paul at one of the end spots providing pass rush should also provide leadership on a line that should be getting younger.

Even with Kwon Alexander gone, and Devin White on the board, we felt that a strong defensive line would do far more to help this team moving forward than having a young LB behind a line with holes.”

Pokorny: “The draft continues to be dominated with defensive talent up front, although it is tough for a team to take two defensive tackles high in the draft in back-to-back years. Oliver isn’t a bad pick, it’s just one of those things you hate to think about when drafting.”

The New York Giants are up next, led by Barry Shuck.
