Thin Crop Of Guards?May 6th, 2014
Joe’s written 1,456 times about the alleged incredible depth at wide receiver in the 2014 NFL Draft.
But where else is it deep, and in what rounds?
Former Bucs scout and Jets personnel chief Pat Kirwan, who now is a national media type for CBS Sports, SiriusXM NFL Radio and others, has penned a neat look at depth in the draft. Joe recommends you check it out here at CBSSports.com.
Kirwan does his own scouting and crafted the chart below:
|DRAFTABLE DEPTH BY POSITION|
|POS.||ROUND 1-3||ROUND 4-7||TOTAL|
It suggests a few things to Joe:
1) Lovie Smith will be able to repeat his clear pattern of drafting a defensive lineman early.
2) If the Bucs want a quality guard, they may have to convert a rookie who played tackle in college.
3) Again, relax, as Joe has advised many times, the Bucs will get a very promising receiver in the first two days of the draft. Mike Evans should not be a priority.
