48. <strong>(TRADE)</strong> <p><em>Tampa Bay Receives</em>: 31st</p> <p><em>New England Receives</em>: 38th, 108th, 180th</p>. Defensive End. Ohio State. Sam Hubbard. 31. player

I have a weird feeling that the Buccaneers will be major players in draft night trading. They will trade back into round one to get their guy, rather than waiting until pick No. 38.

Tampa has put a great emphasis on the defensive side of the ball in recent drafts. However, they have neglected the defensive line in the draft. Other than Noah Spence (24), their defensive line is one of the oldest in the league. Hubbard will provide them with a spark plug that plays hard every snap.  (Justin)

57. <strong>(TRADE)</strong> <p><em>Chicago Receives</em>: 32nd</p> <p><em>Philadelphia Receives</em>: 39th, 105th</p>. Wide Receiver. Alabama. Calvin Ridley. 32. player

Chicago sneaks back into the first round to address their receiving need by trading up seven spots and offering up a fourth.

Ridley is a speedy, gifted receiver that could take the top off a defense. Trubisky could use a weapon to help take the pressure off the run game and get his go-to guy.

Moving back up into the first round ensures the Bears don’t have to wait until pick No. 39 overall and they grab one of the best receivers in the class. (Stephen)

The offseason has just begun. The excitement of free agency is right around the corner and many surprising transactions are going to take place. Next week’s mock draft could be vastly different depending how teams attack free agency.
