2011 NFL Mock Draft Tampa Bay Bucs Get a Steal at Pick No. 20

Article By on 17th March, 2011

Ryan Kerrigan Gives Tampa Bay Buccaneers a Force Off the Edge

Kerrigan was a monster in his final season at Purdue, raking in 12.5 sacks and leading the nation with 26 tackles for loss.

His versatility and skills as a pass rusher could allow him to play defensive end in a 4-3 or outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, but if it’s the former, then his 4.67 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine makes him one of the quickest defensive ends you’ll find in the 2011 draft class.

Kerrigan would be a steal at No. 20, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would gladly take him.

No Buccaneer had more than 4.5 sacks last season, and Kerrigan would provide the team with a compliment alongside Gerald McCoy on the defensive line that would give Tampa Bay a formidable front for years to come.
