Rising And Falling

February 16th, 2009

Joe sometimes has a habit of declaring his lust for certain women. That’s why you see references to Carmella, Jenn Sterger, Tiffany Simons and Jenn Brown. At the risk of not sounding like a man, Joe has to confess he has a mancrush on Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji. Joe would go crazy if somehow the stud would fall to the Bucs with the 19th pick.

But if Todd McShay of BSPN is to be believed, the only way the Bucs get their hands on Raji would be via a trade. McShay talks about some players in the NFL draft who see their stock rising and falling. Raji’s is rising.

    BJ Raji is definitely a worthy 1st round pick. However there is NO WAY he falls from the top 10. The ONLY way the Bucs get B.J. is to trade up and frankly I don’t see them working any deals for that to happen. The only other DT that I would like to see the Bucs take with their first round pick would be Peria Jerry (Mississippi) whose stock is rising after the Senior Bowl. As a starter in the SEC Peria led the SEC in TFL and his 7.0 sacks would be a great upgrade from Chris Hovan.

    I really hope the Bucs don’t waste their 1st round pick on a DE, especially not Michael Johnson. Sure drafting Tyson Jackson would be a good pick but I think that addressing the DT is more pressing than the DE. Heck I think that WR & RB takes preference over DE (don’t think that I’m pleased with Carter or Adams). I think that a good 3rd round pick at DE would be Matt Shaughnessy. He’s big with good speed. I like that he’s started in all of Wisconsin’s games and had a banner 2007 season with 18 TFL and 6.0 sacks. His numbers last year weren’t too shabby and I think that he could definitely push Carter for a starting role.
