“Could Lead All Rookies In Touchdowns”May 15th, 2014
Former Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik is a big fan of the draft-day work of his successors.
Sadly, Joe knows legions of Bucs fans will now lose sleep tonight, fearful none of these new Buccaneers will have a Tampa Bay zip code in five years.
Now working as a “front office” expert for BSPN, Dominik joined Bucs beat reporter Tom Krasniqi on WDAE-AM 620 this evening for a post-draft chat. (You can hear the full audio tomorrow.)
Dominik raved about the Bucs’ second-round pick, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, saying he’s a “dynamic red zone target” and “could lead all rookies in touchdowns.” He also reminded fans that Doug Martin was injured on a passing route last season and the drafting of Charles Sims likely speaks to a perceived need there, in addition to the Sims pick being evidence the Bucs stuck to their draft board.
Dominik staunchly defended the Darrelle Revis trade and contract in great detail, and
Interestingly, Dominik said “one of the hardest things to find out” while evaluating talent is whether a player truly loves football. (Joe’s not buying that one.)
And among other takes, Dominik said he remains a Bucs lover through and through.
