Will Bucs Look Up I-75 For Help?

April 7th, 2009

Rotoworld’s Evan Silva, via NBCSports.com, has a mock draft up where he has the Bucs going a much different route than most NFL draft experts.

In fact, Silva doesn’t think the Bucs will stray far from Tampa in locking up a player. Think Florida Gators wide receiver Percy Harvin.

Tampa ends a receiver run with this class’ truest home run hitter. New coach Raheem Morris emphasized the need for “swagger” at Tampa Bay’s first offseason minicamp, and Harvin brings plenty of style and pizzazz. The Bucs are short on offensive speed opposite Antonio Bryant, and Harvin could immediately produce in the slot.

Joe doesn’t deny Harvin is a special player with gifted speed. But what scares Joe is this guy was always dinged up. If Harvin was always hurt in college, how can anyone expect him to be available on most Sundays in the NFL?

    Harvin was “dinged” in college and I believe that Peracy is a lot like Joey – only not quite as fast but he could have the same impact.

    While I was originally sold on Peria Jerry I’ve since shifted to looking at DE for the Bucs’ #19 pick but I gotta tell you having Percy on the team would DEFINATELY have an immediate impact and I wouldn’t be upset in the least.

    Joe needs not be worried about Harvin’s injuries. They mostly came from being a RB. If Harvin stays mostly in the slot and not running the ball for 1000 yards a season Percy will not be any more injury prone than the next guy
