So, Tom Brady is not behaving like a leader. There has been much proof over the season, but in recent games, he refused to shake hands with Jared Goff in the Bucs' loss to the Rams in Week 11, then looked sullen and bailed on his post-game presser after just 2 minutes after the Week 12 Chiefs' game. Evidence piles up of dissension with the coaching staff, and his offensive teammates as well. Yes, the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence, but this stupid proverb doesn't have a clause for when your house burns down and you're forced to find a new home. The Bucs have 4 games remaining is the season all against teams with losing records, including two against the dangerous, back-against-the-wall Falcons. If the team can get on the same wavelength and win all 4, the Bucs can build momentum for the playoffs, and yes, possibly make it all the way to the Super Bowl.

In previous mocks, we've been focused around drafting a RD1 player that could immediately help Brady in the second (and final) year of his contract. Specifically, an offensive tackle to replace Donovan Smith, or a dynamic playmaking receiver. For the first time, I am widening the lens for Life After Brady. I wonder now if he'll even be back in 2021. Drafting in the 20's, GM Jason Licht could look at a linebacker prospect - it's unlikely that soon to be free agent Lavonte David will be returning given his salary requirements. The warrior is PFF's #5-rated LB in 2020. Further, the Bucs might even look for their next QB if a Zach Wilson or Kyle Trask were to fall to their draft spot.

In this mock, the Bucs select Purdue WR Rondale Moore. At just 5'9" and 180, Moore fits the form factor of the slot WRs that Brady used in New England. Moore has appeared in just two games (through Thanksgiving weekend) but 24 of his 28 targets have come from lining up in the slot, where he's caught 19 (of a total of 22) balls. A YAC machine, Moore's current 2020 stats show just 8.7 yards per reception, but oddly 8.9 YAC per catch. I'm not even going to try to figure that one out. I can't wait until his 2020 highlights come out, but here are highlights from Moore's first two seasons - "the shiftiest receiver in college football"!. As much as we all love Chis Godwin, Brady's #1 slot option, to be frank the team won't be able to afford him going forward. Rondale Moore will fill that void with instant production.

BUCS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
