I fear this pick. I fear it means our offense will be too limited to just one wide receiver worth a damn. I fear the lack of quality firewire converters to adapt my 1990s videocam to modern USB ports to... oh, pardon my rambling...

thing is, with the cap on guaranteed money, trading up is cheaper now for teams, which is why we'd seen a lot the last two drafts compared to the previous 6-10 years...

if the Bucs do trade down like that, they SHOULD get a Second Rounder per the Johnson model... but most teams won't want to cough up that high a draft pick...

If the Bucs can get Sammy Watkins at Seventh overall, that's our draft, that's an A the whole weekend. Would prefer getting a Guard here but best-available TE will help with blocking too.

Commented on NFL Mock Draft 2014: Mel Kiper plays it safe for Buccaneers on Apr 18 2014, 11:17a - 1 reply
it helps to draft for depth needs at key positions, and our O-line's depth is pretty meager at the moment...

I don't have Xavier slipping that far. In my mocks, he's usually going pretty high (first Guard off the list in fact)

dawwwwwwwwwww... so if the Bucs do trade down to garner a few extra picks, who WOULD be there by the 15th (or maybe 21st, that's the lowest I'd trade down)?

when there's great need, immediate need, getting a No. 2 WR to line up opposite V Jax, screw getting a DT as a luxury.

Commented on 2014 NFL Draft: Tampa Bay Buccaneers' top needs on Apr 16 2014, 7:50p
why trade up for a tackle in Lewan who'll most likely still be there by the 19th pick? why trade up for a tackle when the odds are good Matthews slides to 7th (Robinson maybe)?
Commented on 2014 NFL Draft Rumors: Buccaneers are not trading up for an offensive tackle on Apr 16 2014, 7:48p - 1 reply
trading up for an OT implies Matthews and Robinson would be gone. Which means Watkins might slip to us at 7th. So the Bucs DON'T need to trade up.
