The Buccaneers end round one with a running back.
Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
The selection and write-up were made by Midnite Moses:
There is no hole on this roster larger than this and it has been eluding the Bucs for years. I don’t care how much smoke Bruce wants to blow about Ronald Jones and the Vandy kid, this should be too easy.
Etienne’s chops at receiving out of the backfield will certainly make this a devastating offensive show. Thought about a WR replacement for Godwin next year, but just couldn’t pull the trigger.
That, along with Bruce being as close to old school as they get, makes a RB in the 1st a desirable pick…. especially for a kid as talented as this. Travis is far from his ceiling and has only gotten better each season. Look for Arians to finish him off the right way. Woe is KC.
Pokorny: “This reminds me exactly of what the Chiefs did in this position last year.”
That concludes our first round mock draft! We do have several “use your imagination” picks coming up for the Browns at No. 59, No. 89, and No. 91 to finish off the community mock draft, though, so stay tuned. The Cleveland Browns are up next, fast-forwarding to No. 59, led by ProfessorBrowns.
