2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #19

Return to Mock Draft

Tampa Bay
Calijah Kancey



It's hard to imagine Tampa Bay thought they'd get one of the "Big 4" QBs in this class, and an absolute shocker to do it while staying put. Still, the lure of Levis wasn't enough to get the Bucs to pull the trigger. This defense definitely needs to get younger, and Kancey brings an explosive (albeit small) player to the unit.

This defensive front has been built on two-gap power, and Todd Bowles may be finally shifting it to a scheme that covets more athleticism up front. Either way, this team's pass rush is getting better and this is a passing league. Grade: B+
