With The Seventh Pick In The 2014 NFL Draft …

December 29th, 2013

The Bucs did their part by getting clobbered this afternoon, but none of the other teams jockeying for draft position with Tampa Bay played along.

By Joe’s calculations of various NFL tiebreakers, the Bucs have locked up the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Bucs lost all tiebreakers with fellow 4-12 teams Atlanta, Jacksonville, Oakland and Cleveland.

Will the Bucs get the chance to have Johnny Football searching for a St. Pete beach condo?

    Joe- Do you seriously want this cocky little shit in Tampa?

    Being physically built like Russel Wilson does not make one Russel Wilson.

  3. Joe Says:

    Joe- Do you seriously want this cocky little shit in Tampa?

    No. Joe just feels like wasting all the hours it takes to write about Manziel just so he can lie to his readers because he doesn’t have anything else better to do.

    Guessing Joe has to point out to you that answer was sarcasm.

    So the Bucs should get a large quarterback with zero confidence? Stephon Morris is your kinda QB, huh?

  4. Vern4499 Says:

    Terry,

    Is he cocky or confident? I love how people like you who have probably never met the guy want to attack him as a person! What a joke.

  5. Terry4505 Says:

    I don’t know, running down the field flashing dollar signs, taunting opponents, general douce baggery…

    These don’t seem to be the characteristics I would look for in the face of my franchise.

  6. PRBucFan Says:

    No we are smart enough to realize that you always reply with sarcasm.

    We aren’t as stupid as you seem to think ;)

    get off johnny’s junk joe, Bortles(a FL boy)>>Johnny doucheball

  8. dean brunner Says:

    how do they always lose tie breakers? playoffs or draft!!

  9. underdogs Says:

    Remember how confident Josh Freeman was?………

  10. Harry Says:

    I don’t follow college football enough to know if Manziel is the real deal or not. I do read the criticisms about him though. My response would be Bress and Wilson are not very tall and seem to do pretty well – I know I wish either of them were the Bucs QB. And based on Manziel’s ability to almost single-handedly beat Alabama, a team that is absolutely loaded with NFL talent, Manziel has to be better than any QB the Bucs have EVER had.

    @Joe

    love the sarcasm to admin

  11. NY Buc Says:

    If Carr is still available at #7 that might be hard pick to pass up (though the thought of LVD, Foster, and Mack in our LB corps is a scary good one).

  12. BucFanForever Says:

    I look for wins. Johnny Football has a higher chance of bringing those to tampa than pretty much every qb.

    Scramble around and throw to VJax and Mike Williams. Worked well for Freeman, will work even better for Manziel.

  13. JonBuc Says:

    I want the galloping giraffe back…none of that hope and excitement that Manziel would bring. Manziel didn’t become the first freshman Heisman winner ever by being shy, scared and apologetic.

  14. Brian Says:

    I sure hope so Joe! I would love to see Johnny Football in a Bucs uniform in 2014. My biggest fear however, is that if the Glazers decide to bring back Schiano next season, Glennon will be the starter and the Bucs will not take a QB until the later rounds.

  15. Harry Says:

    Hey Joe,
    Admin is “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” bc I made fun of him… lol

  16. AceOfAerospace Says:

    I’m ready for wholesale changes.

  17. Yar Says:

    Johnny football will be there for the Bucs in the second round, and I wouldn’t take him then either.

  18. Vern4499 Says:

    Oh ok so you wouldn’t want a lot of the college stars. Bridgewater flashed the U at Miami last night after his last touchdown taunting them. I have never heard anything bad about him.

    But maybe you are ok with having a perineal loser to root for. I’m tired of it and want a winner back in Tampa.

  19. PRBucFan Says:

    Keep wishing upon a star

    Doesn’t matter how many times you post pics of the Manchild.

    But hey your allowed to dream I guess.

  20. deminion Says:

    My preferred guys Watkins, clowney Matthews Barr

  21. Ep bucfan Says:

    Nfl.com has them with 3rd pick. Is this incorrect? http://www.nfl.com/standings?category=league&season=2013-REG

  22. Jerry Says:

    Keep Glennon, bring in a vet to aid in progression, and draft Watkins.

  23. Robbie_G Says:

    Joe is you want the rich kid, you better PRAY Schiano gets fired. If he’s back, the snobby little puke will not be a Buccaneer. Draft a pass rusher or LEft Tackle, maybe a game breaking WR. Then take a QB in the 2nd.

  24. ClassieFreddieBlassie Says:

    I am starting to come around on the idea of Manziel as our QB, but do we draft QB if Schiano is back? I personally am not sold on Glennon as the guy, but he does have his Mob. Regardless, if the talent is on the table when you are on the clock, you go get that.

  25. Analacubana Says:

    Johnny Football really? Lmao. Anyone remember our 1st Heisman trophy winner? Lmao

  26. Joe Says:

    Johnny Football really? Lmao. Anyone remember our 1st Heisman trophy winner? Lmao

    So you are saying you wouldn’t want Jameis Winston either?

  27. P'cola Buc Says:

    Watkins or any other receiver will hardly be effective without a QB who can get the ball to them more consistently. A receiver does not touch the ball on every offensive play as a QB does. We need to pick the best QB available. One that can make plays and win occasional games with his own elite play. We need to have this attitude until we get the QB position filled right in future drafts.

    Sammmy Watkins Lets get him!

  30. Mr. Patrick Says:

    A New Head Coach

  31. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We have too many needs….we need to trade down…plenty of great players will still be there….including QBs

  32. Vern4499 Says:

    Have any of Manziels coaches or players said a bad word about him?

  33. DontBucNH8 Says:

    Take Sammie Waltkins or trade down.

  34. Joe Says:

    Have any of Manziels coaches or players said a bad word about him?

    Thank you. My, word, let’s ignore how Manziel shredded some of the best coaches and defenses in college football, even as they gameplanned against him and him alone, and let’s focus on him doing moneyfingers or how he celebrates great plays.

    Joe hopes the same people knocking Manziel for his enthusiasm were also throwing rocks at Warren Sapp for celebrating tackles when he was at Miami.

  35. Buc'dup Says:

    What is up with u and Johnny?? You need to realize glennon isn’t the problem!!! Seriously quit drinking that kool-aid

  36. PRBucFan Says:

    Regardless

    The Manchild will be ignored

  37. Terry4505 Says:

    Except, Warren Sapp is a D-tackle, not your team’s leader.

  38. Joe Says:

    Except, Warren Sapp is a D-tackle, not your team’s leader.

    Uh, oh! Joe is slammed all the time when he writes quarterbacks lead.

    So how did Manziel lead the Aggies, with little running attack to speak of and a seive of a defense?

    How did Manziel lead when Nick Saban had all offseason to craft a defense to stop him, and got lit up for 460 yards?

    Or how did Manziel lead when Bob Stoops had over a month to create a defense to slow him down, and Manziel ran wild on the Sooners for 500+ yards?

    Yeah, let’s forget all of Manziel’s accomplishments and worry about how he does the moneyfingers after a touchdown pass. smh

    Let’s forget how he literally put a team on his back and worry about Manziel pointing to the scoreboard after a touchdown. smh

  39. Harry Says:

    @Buc’dup Says:
    “What is up with u and Johnny?? You need to realize glennon isn’t the problem!!! Seriously quit drinking that kool-aid”

    If you really think Glennon is the answer, you are drinking more than kook-aid

  40. DownwithDummynick Says:

    I would like to see Blake Bortles, a FA Vet and Glennon compete for starter in 2014.

  41. DownwithDummynick Says:

    17 Million in CAP room, could be more with some restructuring –

    http://nfltraderumors.co/2014-nfl-free-agents/

    Notable FA QB’s in 2014 – Jay Cutler, Michael Vick, Josh McCown….

    Sign one, draft Bortles, Keep Glennon and all three compete for Starter.

  42. Joe Says:

    Jay Cutler, Michael Vick, Josh McCown

    Joe just wants to jump in his empty pool after reading those names. :(

  43. lions Says:

    Joe do you think that the Texans, Jaguars, Raiders and Browns pass on Manziel? I don’t think so, though we can only hope. Though I do believe that Glennon although a great arm lacks the creative ability the above average qb’s seem to possess. Maybe Bortles….
    Could we trade up is that a possibility?

  44. buc89 Says:

    Manziel has killer instinct. Glennon is a giraffe and gets eaten by everything

  45. StRicKn Says:

    Johnny Football is the truth! I follow this site more than most. I don’t comment often but this is necessary. Joe is spot on with Johnny Football assessment. I really hope Johnny F. Is there at 7. Go bucs

  46. StRicKn Says:

  47. Joe Says:

    One of those teams will draft Bridgewater. Who knows about the Raiders? The Browns may very well be gunshy about drafting quarterbacks. Bucs might find a trade-up partner.

  48. Brandon Says:

    Micael Johnson AND/OR Greg Hardy in free agency and trade up fir Bridgewater…if trade up doesn’t happen, put eggs in Manziel basket. It’s better than having no basket at all.

  49. Bucfan#37 Says:

    Don’t know much about Bortles from UCF, watched his tv games against USF and the win at Louisville. I like the idea of bringing in a home boy though.

  50. StRicKn Says:

    Gotta get a LEGITIMATE 3rd Receiver. Justin Tuck or Jared Allen. O and d line depth. Top that with Johnny Football and a healthy Doug Martin.. back in business!

  51. Burg Says:

    Bortles is the best qb in this draft assuming he comes out…

  52. Lou. Says:

    Like all Buc fans should, I WANT Glennon to be good. But he hasn’t proved out so far. Wasn’t ‘t Glennon outplayed by the Rams’ Clemmons last week? I hope he has great upside, but we have only seen a rookie learning curve so far.

    Johnny would be fine by me. However, I expect he will be taken before we draft. We are most likely to go for position players, although I wouldn’t mind seeing us trade down.

    But reaching in the first round is how one ends up with a Tannehill. Or a Freeman.

  53. Alan Bucs Says:

    I am with everyone who says draft Sammy Watkins! The kid is game changer which we don’t have on this team right now. I honestly believe that adding Watkins, another good tight end and offensive tackles will even make a mike Sullivan offense look exciting.

  54. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    No, No, No to Johny “spoiled rotten” Football. I usually agree with Joe, but not on this topic.

  55. DHutch Says:

    Johnny Manziel won’t be there for the 7th pick. Watkins may not either (rams may grab him).

  56. Greg Says:

    @ Terry, if you don’t think Warren Sapp was a team leader on those great Bucs teams, then I’d say you’ve been snorting the Kool-Aid mix. Manziel is like Freeman in that he can make plays on the move, with the big difference between the two being that Johnny Football has always been a winner. The Bucs would be stupid not to take a guy like that.

  57. Wienaman Says:

    For more elaboration, btw:

    Jacksonville’s opponents had 129 wins on the season, making them the 3rd pick

    Cleveland and Oakland’s opponents both had 131 wins; Cleveland wins tiebreaker due to worse conference record (3-9 vs 4-8)…so Cleveland is 4, and Oakland is 5

    Atlanta’s opponents had 141 wins, so they get 6th pick

    Tampa Bay’s opponents had 146 wins, so they get 7th pick.

    nfl.com had Tampa at the “3rd pick” because they had the teams listed in alphabetical order.

    The team whose opponents has the least number of wins while earning the same crappy record logically lost to teams that are not as good; therefore, since they lost to inferior opponents, they merit a higher draft pick.

    And that, my friends, is an elaboration on why Joe said we are 7th pick.

  58. Wienaman Says:

    BTW, if the Eagles win tonight, the win total against Tampa goes to 147.

  59. StRicKn Says:

    I don’t know why anybody doubts Johhny Football As the perfect pick for the bucs. Sure it is way early. Sure there is major holes at Defensive end and 3rd reciever. Mike Glennon can be a great backup for cheap. J.M. Can be built around as the franchise q.b. free never could.

  60. Analacubana Says:

    Winston is declaring eligible? Sweet. Lmao. Johnny Football lmao no Tim Tebow lmao!

  61. Analacubana Says:

    Seriously, I do not have to know much football or how to fix it, (above my pay grade) to recognize BAD football when I see it. All I have to do is watch the Bucs play.

  62. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Joe, do you view Johnny Football as being a Schiano guy?

    I don’t. So I’m wondering…if Schiano does not get fired, why do you think the Bucs would pick him? Or are you just voicing who you like at QB?

    I’ve thought about it and assuming all of the top 2-3 QBs are gone, I think we still have options.

    We can either sign a Free Agent QB…and I do believe we will see a couple more guys cut (like Sanchez for example)…or we can draft a QB in the first or second round.

    I’m leaning toward Zach Mettenberger, LSU. He could be had in round 2, and he and Glennon could compete.

    Although, if Johnny Manziel is there in the second round, I would be tempted.

  63. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wienaman Says
    “nfl.com had Tampa at the “3rd pick” because they had the teams listed in alphabetical order.”

    Not true. It lists by PCT.

  64. Analacubana Says:

    Upon further reflection Winston might come available to us next year. If we keep our HC, sucking for another year will be doable.

  65. DHutch Says:

    Again, WE R NOT GETTING MANZIEL, unless we trade up for him. I doubt we do that.

  66. Wienaman Says:

    @ BuccaneerBonzai:

    It lists by percent unless two or more teams have the same percent; then it lists by alpha order. Hence why the team order for the five teams with a .250 pct are Atlanta, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Oakland, Tampa, with Wash and Houston below them. In other words, Tampa is listed as the 3rd pick in the draft, while they are actually 7th.

  67. Analacubana Says:

    Trading up for a QB that is not Peyton Manning is like playing poker with your rent money , maybe you win, if not, well….lmao!

  68. Analacubana Says:

    Remember, Ryan Leif, Vince Young, Demarcus Russell , Tim Tebow, Rex Grossman… I am sure I am forgetting some but you get the picture, winning COLLEGE qbs, high draft picks.
