The Tampa Bay Buccaneers own the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft after finishing the season 2-14 (their lower strength of schedule gives them the nod over the Tennessee Titans, who will pick second overall). Which prospects are most likely to be taken with that top pick? And would the Bucs consider trading out of the No. 1 spot?

Let's take a look at Tampa Bay's top options with the first overall selection. (And if you want to look back, check out my first mock draft from a few weeks ago.)

1. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon Ducks

The obvious question the Bucs are going to have to answer during the draft process is whether one of the top two QB prospects, Mariota and Florida State's Jameis Winston, is the right choice for them. Both guys have the potential to become high-level NFL quarterbacks, but both carry big risks.
