Bucs Add A Defensive EndApril 27th, 2013
William Gholston, defensive end, Michigan State, is your newest Buccaneer.
Problem with Gholston, other than his cousin is Vernon Gholston, is he is way too inconsistent. At times he looked like Simeon Rice. Other times, he played like Sackless Kyle Moore.
Gholston, physically, is everything you would want from a defensive end, and is a bit of a freakish athlete at 6-7, 273 pounds, but too often he takes off plays.
Joe is convinced Bucs coach Greg Schiano will not tolerate such nonsense, a guy not getting the most of his talent.
Mike Mayock made the same point on NFL Network, while Les Miles, sitting next to Mayock on the NFL Network set, said he was stunned a guy of Gholston’s talent went so late in the draft. Miles said he was after Gholston in high school.
Here’s an interesting Detroit Free Press feature on Gholston, which makes a case he probably should have stayed in school since he has so much upside.
