I don’t know if there was a bigger issue than WR for us this year. Aside from Jackson, no one could get any separation. We have no one that can turn something into nothing. In fact, we haven’t had that in a really really long time. Granted Williams was hurt, but injuries happen. If you don’t have 3 legit Wr’s in today’s NFL, you’ve got nothing. Plus, by reading his twitter, I am very worried about Williams. I really hope he hasn’t gotten his money and got comfortable, but that’s my fear.
I’m jumping on the Watkins bandwagon too. The guy is a playmaker any where on the field.I would be happy to take him at #7.
Frazier says he’s committed to joining the Bucs as DC. This will work out fine as Frazier will be in holding pattern for a couple of years until his ticket comes up for HC again.
Marinelli has 1 year remaining on his contract in Dallas. When that is up he will surely join Lovie in Tampa. Frazier could move into the role of Asst. HC and take on the role similar to Butch Davis. Marinelli can then become DC. These guys are wedded at the hip. It’s just a matter of time before the reunion!
The Joe’s are slippin… Why no story yet on LVD & GMC named All-Pros? Also, Leslie Frazier is our new DC… Here’s a nice thought… If we bring in Jared Allen, Julius Peppers, Charles Tillman, & draft Sammy Watkins, we might go to the Superbowl next year. Even with the big white (super genius) giraffe at QB.
We don’t have a 3rd and 6th rounder and you want to give up more picks to get the number 1 overall!? Did we already forget who’s picking 2nd and why? And that was for the number 2 overall. Draft Sammy at 7!!!
Anyways I trust what Lovie will do ultimately and it was more meant in a joking manner but just saying the choice is there for Bridgewater who in my opinion also is going to end up a special player and he would be that franchise QB we’ve been looking for.
If we are that desperate, don’t think it won’t be looked into haha.
And I like Watkins but the kid would be a luxury pick.
One good thing about having a lot of holes is that we can truly go best player available. We could use a tackle, a DE, a WR, a QB, or a Guard. I think our biggest need is getting help of the offensive side of the ball. I think even if we stand pat on defense, Lovie and Frazier will put our defense into one of the top 6 or 7 in the league. I don’t see Tedford, or any OC for that matter, making us a top 6 or 7 offense as presently constructed. But again, if Clowney is there at 7, how do you pass him up?
There’s a bunch of quality High & Mid level talent- this year at DE DT & CB(FA). IMO we need to bring in some proven vets at those positions. It was sad to hear GMC say this year that he’s never had ANY veteran leadership on the line to help him out.
Remember last years number 1 overall pick. Did nothing this year. We can fill holes on both side of the line in free agency. You don’t pass on a Julio jones type wr in Watkins who btw….just scored again. Luxury my arss lol
Ya cuz our what 32 ranked offense and aging number 1 wr who gets caught and drops often (this year) and number 2 coming off injury couldn’t use some speed. Cuz we’re stacked at weapons on O outside of Martin right lol not a luxury pick
That’s where I disagree with you. I happen to believe that WR is our biggest need. You know I’m not a huge Glennon fan, but he had no one but Jackson to throw the ball to last year. Can you imagine what would happen if Jackson missed a game? We may not be able to get a first down. If your WR’s can’t get open, it doesn’t matter how good your line is.
That’s fine, everyone is entitled too their opinion
IMO Come draft day we’ll all see WR won’t be our first pick.
IMO Its not our biggest need, they’ll bring in more talent through FA at WR before they pass on need with the talent that will be available on the defensive side/oline and possibly QB position in this draft.
I don’t think we are well off at all at WR. Mike Williams is tweeting tonight about how he needs 10 girls to be in a music video, and he’s paying them at least $500 each. That’s a bit of a concern for me. I’ve yet to see him tweet once about rehabbing. And he tweets a lot. I practically know when he goes to the bathroom.
How is WR a luxury when you had THE WORST OFFENSE IN THE LEAGUE??? You can’t say that about any other area of our team… Our offensive line was trying their best to take complete credit for our suck-a$$ offense, but it’s more than that. Either way, I like luxury. Julio Jones was a “luxury” to Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez… was that a bad move?
It’s everybody’s opinion on here. that’s the whole purpose of the comment section is to debate. And just because you may be right about them NOT draft Watkins doesn’t mean that they SHOULD’NT have. big difference. Personally, I would not be surprised if the didn’t, but I think they should. That’s all we’re saying BucFan.
I truly believe Mikey will benefit from a legit inside threats(one that can block)
Detroit has major cap concerns this year because Ndamukong Suh’s contract balloons up $22,412,500 in 2014. Because on Mar 14 2013 Restructured 2013 base salary from $12.15 million to $630k. IMO Brandon Pettigrew would be solid
Along with (Drafting in the later Rounds)
Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State 6-5 235
Josh Huff WR Oregon 5-11 202
Glennon was NOT the problem for us this season, our Offensive Line was; that unit cost us this season period! they were putrid this year; with the exception of about 3 games…we had no depth at WR behind Jackson (whom was banged up most of the year himself); thank God Tim Wright emerged…our starting RB for the last 8 games was literally picked up off the street…and the offensive play-calling was suspect all year…
We’re all passionate about our Bucs so we’re all entitled to our opinion….I just believe that all of those factors listed above have to be taken into consideration before completely giving up on Glennon…Imo played very well considering the circumstances…
Let’s not get our hopes up too high on Watkins. That stupid Shanahan sold his soul to the Rams to get RG 3 sticks. The Rams have the 2nd pick and if I know Fisher, his mouth is watering bout now! Let’s hope he stays greedy and trades out for even more picks. There oughta be a law!
Leslie Frazier welcome aboard sir. Really getting pumped up. Get Dungy in there. Having this staff without Dungy almost seems odd. Lets make him, I dont know, the useless position that Butch Davis held. I mean what in the world did Butch even do? Does anybody know?
I post this draft BS every year. Last year when I found out that Taylor Lewan was staying in school. I started beating the drums for Ziggy, Sio Moore, Robert alford, Terron Armstead, and Kenny Still (among others). This year I’m sending it to One Buc just to say I did it. lol
Yea I thought of that possibility to. Luckily St. Louis also needs a tackle and Mathews is one of the best players available in the draft so I’m hoping they go that route. Knowing our luck though, they dont.
My old football coach use to say “U cant coach speed…U either have or U don’t”…
The things I luv most about Sammy Watkins is he has size, speed, versatility, hands, and heart…We could line him up inside, outside, in the backfield, punts, kick-offs, etc…If he makes it past the Rams I think we should tak’em at 7…If Watkins and Clowney are gone take the Offensive Tackle….
I saw some of your posts above and wondered if someone was on your pc…lol
I hope, like every buc fan that lovie does well, and many are guessing 7-8 wins. that will not put us in position to get a qb next year or after…the aaron rodgers slide is haley’s comet rare.
why not double our chances at qb? if the rook fails, we still have glennon to do what he did this year. we still need a few pieces and will not get them all this year, but I think this year is the best chance at a qb.
After the last two players we drafted out of Clemson, before tonight, I’d say HELL NO to drafting anyone out of Clemson. Watkins is Megatron Jr, we cannot pass up the chance to draft this guy if (big IF) he’s still there at 7! I’m a Watkins believer after tonight, he can make Dan Orlovsky or possibly even Shaun King look like a HOF’r!
I could see the Ram’s taking Watkins but that would leave Matthew’s and/or Barr to the Buc’s – so that’s not a bad thing at all! I also can see a trade between the Bucs and Rams – if this were to happen, the Bucs would have the second pick and would take J. Clowney…The Ram’s picking at 7 would have a pick of one or both of their favorites being Matthew’s or Watkins…Ram’s make out for the second year in a Row!!
Buc come away with the best DE in a generation…the compensation for this? I don’t really know – certainly their second and maybe even the first next year…I believe it would be worth it however becuz what Clowney would do for this D there is No way that first round pick in 2015 would be any higher than a mid 20 IMHO (getting to the QB has been a Big Buc achilles heel) – Its worth it based on the teams current talent and depth and hopeful free agent pick ups…
No way Lovie lets Revis walk. A great coach adjusts to his players and gets the best out of them. Lovie is smart enough not to let the one of the top 3 CB in the league walk just because of some minor schematic details.
We do not need to draft a WR, DE, G, or TE in the first round. Michael Bennett was undrafted and produced just fine. Donald Penn, and Demar Dotson were also undrafted and the tackle play this year was excellent. Davin Joesph was a first rounder and is terrible and Nick was a 5th round pick. Mike Williams and V-Jack are our 1 and 2 and you don’t draft a WR 1st to play the slot.
The NFL is a QB driven league and if you do not have an ELITE QB nothing else matters. We need someone as good or better than Brees, Ryan, and Newton and unless you want to gamble over and over again with the 1 in a million to find another Brady late in the draft we need a QB first.
