Buccaneers 2021 mock draft: 2nd pick

One of the biggest free agents the Bucs have heading into the 2021 offseason is defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh.

Since his days in Miami, Suh has seemingly been taking things one year at a time. He signed on with the Buccaneers in 2019 and then re-signed in the 2020 offseason. This has been a very positive move for the Bucs and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. Even at the age of 33, Suh is still playing about 75 percent of the defensive snaps for Bowles’ unit.

With that being said, the Buccaneers need to start thinking about the future on the defensive line, and being presented with an opportunity like this, they have to take advantage.

Levi Onwuzurike has a ton of raw talent and really started to show out for the Huskies in 2018 and 2019 before opting out of the 2020 season.

Although some (like NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah) love the potential of Onwuzurike and view him as a top prospect at his position group on the defensive line, he showed some rust at the Senior Bowl from being out of competitive football environments for over a year.

This kid has big potential when it comes to playing the interior defensive line. If his stock dips a bit from his time away, it could be a huge benefit to the Buccaneers.
