“Doesn’t Hold You As Hostage To A Cornerback”April 22nd, 2013
Darrelle Revis will not just impact the Bucs on the field, says rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, Revis has helped the Bucs in the 2013 draft, even though the Bucs coughed up the No. 13 overall pick.
“It doesn’t hold you as hostage to a cornerback,” Dominik said of the Revis signing. “It actually expands our draft board.”
Now Joe considers this quality spin. Of course, the Bucs are still hurting for cornerbacks, especially considering Revis and Eric Wright are coming off season-ending injuries and the Bucs have little behind them.
Dominik says being held hostage in the draft “causes mistakes.” Joe agrees. Of course, the return of Ronde Barber in the next few days would really free the Bucs from pigeonholing the Bucs in the draft.
Dominik went on to say 2013 is a “deep corner draft” with “depth through the middle rounds.”
Defensive tackle also is a deep position per league executives, Dominik said.
Dominik said he’s already shopping the No. 43 overall pick in the second round.
Joe will bring you much more from Dominik’s predraft news conference.
