2011 NFL Mock Draft: Will The Bucs Be Able To Get A Defensive End In The First Round?

SB Nation just came out with the latest edition of their 2011 NFL Mock Draft, and they continue to project defensive ends to the Bucs. The defensive end prospect that they have the Bucs taking each week is a little bit of a revolving door, and this week it's Missouri's Aldon Smith. Here is their rationale.

Smith is extremely talented and may be long gone by this point. He'd be a steal here.

I think that if the Bucs have the intention of taking a defensive end in the first round, than Smith is probably the best case scenario for them. he has the talent and athleticism to be the major sack-producer that the Buccaneers really need to put next to the two defensive tackles they took in the Draft last year. But as they point out, there is a pretty good chance that he'll be off the board way before the Bucs have a chance to take him at this spot.
