Still Expects WR In Draft

March 4th, 2009

For the second week in a row, ProFootballWeekly’s Wes Bunting is suggesting the Bucs will draft a wide receiver in the first round. And Bunting releases this prediction after the Bucs announced the resigning of receivers Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton, and the acqusition of tight end Sgt. Winslow.

And for the second time in as many weeks, Bunting predicts the Bucs to draft Darrius Heyward-Bey of Maryland.

With the news that the Buccaneers have an interest in Raiders running back Michael Bush, expect Tampa Bay to bypass the RB position in the first round and opt for a playmaking wideout. The Buccaneers need to add more of a vertical threat to their passing game, and Heyward-Bey and his 4.3 speed fit the bill.

Joe can’t see this happening unless they expect Clayton to come off the bench. If that is the case, Clayton is pulling pretty good coin not to start.
