The latest NFL mock draft



kerrigan.jpgThe latest Sports Illustrated mock NFL draft has the Bucs taking Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan with the 20th pick in the first round. Kerrigan is a 6-foot-4, 263-pounder who had 13 sacks last season for the Boilermakers and 25 over the past two seasons. Sports Illustrated NFL writer Don Banks writes:

The Bucs crave pass rush, and there sits Kerrigan, who knows his way around an offensive backfield. He displayed the athleticism and intensity at the combine that he has always had on game day, and he should make for a very solid, though likely not spectacular, addition to Tampa Bay's emerging front seven.

Banks has Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert going first overall to Carolina, Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus going second to Denver and Auburn quarterback Cam Newton going third to Buffalo. Click here for the entire mock draft.
