Bucs New Space-Eater Loves Warren Sapp

April 28th, 2009

Joe is starting to fall in love with Roy Miller, the Bucs’ new defensive tackle drafted in the third round.

Whereas recently re-signed Bucs defensive tackle Ryan Sims is a Grade A first-round bust — the sixth overall pick by the Chiefs in 2002 — Miller is a hard-working, workout fiend with track record of success on and off the field.

Legitimate hope is there for Miller to quickly become an effective starter on the D-line, much like 2008 third round pick Jeremy Zuttah performed on the Bucs offensive line.

About Miller, a University of Texas bio says Warren Sapp is his NFL hero, he was an honor roll student who graduated with a degree in corporate communications. and he grew up in a military family.

After the Bucs’ selected Miller, UT coach Mack Brown raved about him being a leader and a two-way player.

Roy Miller is one of the best leaders we’ve ever had because of his toughness,” Texas head coach Mack Brownsaid. “He was able to play both ways. He was our fullback in the short yardage and goal-line package. At the same time, he dominated the line of scrimmage from the day he got here. He’ll do the same in the NFL and is very similar to Casey Hampton.”

If you want to get a look at the 300-pounder who looks awfully agile, Joe highly recommends this video.

    I am SUPER excited about M&M ( Morris & Moore ) lol…. I love our 2 Dline picks!!!!!!!

    Agreed. Miller seems to be the perfect Jim Bates tackle and, given what Joe has read about Moore, and given the fact Bates works magic with defensive ends I really like those two picks.

    Joe is just trying to forget the first one. And what’s with Freeman wearing No. 1 for a uniform number? Has there ever been a non-kicker who has done anything in the NFL with “No. 1?”

    What, is this guy some sort of Fred Rouse?
