Who’s Been To One Buc And Why?April 18th, 2011
In a public service to Bucs fans, draft guru Justin “The Commish” Pawlowski summed up what draft hopefuls the Bucs have worked out and what it might all mean.
It’s on The Commish’s must-read draft page on 620wdae.com. Click the link and scroll down.
Here’s his snippet on linebackers officially on the Bucs radar:
Fresno State – Chris Carter
North Carolina – Quan Sturdivant
Georgia – Akeem Dent
*Miami – Colin McCarthy
UCLA – Akeem Ayers
There’s not one doubt in my mind that the Bucs are focussed on drafting at least one linebacker in this year’s draft. Like Justin Houston, I think Akeem Ayers is a backup plan if the top DEs are off the board. The Bucs could either draft them at 20 or trade back and possibly still get one of the 2. The other linebackers here just show that the Bucs are indeed spending time and money scouting linebackers this year. Chris Carter would be good value in the 3rd round, but it wouldn’t shock me if the Bucs grabbed him in the 2nd round if they really like him.

Ahh, just 10 days until Day 1 of the draft. Joe is salivating. Surely the Bucs will take a linebacker early with the uncertainty of four unrestricted free agent linebackers currently on their roster.
Hopefully a small miracle will resolve the labor mess so these new Bucs will be sweating their butts off shorts at One Buc Palace in early May.
