Matthews To The RescueApril 17th, 2009
In his updated mocked draft, Banks suggests the Bucs will draft a linebacker. Specifically, USC linebacker Clay Matthews.
The Bucs need a defensive tackle, but Mississippi’s Peria Jerry doesn’t really fit the wide-body type they’re looking for. That might elevate outside linebacker to the top of the list, and Matthews is the top-rated one remaining.
Joe wouldn’t be opposed to the Bucs selecting a linebacker in the first round. Joe would prefer a defensive lineman, but if it comes down to drafting either Josh Freeman or anyone else, Joe prays Mark Dominik picks a USC Song Girl.
