Surprises!April 29th, 2014
Now some nine days from the draft, Joe couldn’t begin to guess who the Bucs will grab at No. 7. Of course, Joe pines for Johnny Football but realizes that wish is unlikely to be fulfilled.
Shoot, if Joe wanted to play devil’s advocate, he could see the Bucs taking a dozen different players at No. 7. It is a total roll of the dice.
Anthony Becht, the Buccaneers Radio Network and BSPN analyst, who soon will have his top-shelf youth camp, already has offered his first choice, if he were general manager Jason Licht. Becht also believes there are many first-round options for Licht, so he told Pat Donovan and Aaron Jacobson of WDAE-AM 620 over the weekend.
“I wouldn’t move up for anybody,” Becht said. “I really think that someone is going to fall in their lap that either they maybe didn’t think they could get, or there might be an opportunity to get somebody that, OK, make a move to make a trade for someone others might want to get.
“How many tackles, how many quarterbacks are going to slide down because that team needs something? I look for a lot of surprises in the first 10 picks.”
That’s the beauty of this draft. It is so wide open, that is the cool thing.
Again, Joe would pull the trigger on Johnny Football but could make an argument for a dozen different guys.
