With the nineteenth pick in the Canal Street Chronicles community mock draft, the Tampa Bay Bucaneers select...
Peria Jerry, DT, Ole Miss
The Bucs went through many changes this off-season mostly on the defensive side of the ball. They have needs at LB, QB and DL. However the recent Byron Leftwich signing shores up the QB position relinquishing the need to select one in the draft. Several good LB's are left on the board. But the defensive line gave up tons of yards and needs an infusion of talent. That talent comes in the form of DT Peria Jerry.
Peria Jerry started all 12 games at DT for Ole Miss in the SEC. He collected 2nd and 3rd team All SEC honors. Jerry is a solid leader on and off the field. He put forth a strong showing at the Senior Bowl as well. Many of his relatives are NFL players.
Peria Jerry is 6-2 and 290 lbs and has a college career line of 38 games played with 132 tackles (33 for loss) and 11.5 sacks. His positives are an explosive first step, an ability to shed blockers and a great motor. Conversely, he is an older prospect (he will be 25 at draft time), lacks ideal size, and has an injury history.
