    So wait a minute, you think it’s a dumb idea to draft Okung and then try to trade Penn afterward saying that teams would laugh at the Bucs for doing that, but then that’s exactly what you want to do with Barrett Ruud after you draft McClain??? What’s the difference?

  2. Joe Says:


    Joe is not speaking for Justin, but Joe assumes Justin thinks trading Penn is dumb is because Penn, arguably, is the Bucs best player and a premiere left tackle.

    The same cannot be said for Barrett Ruud.

    Using a premium pick in the draft to downgrade a position is a sure way to continue to suck.

    No way in hell Okung is better his rookie year than Penn is already. No qarantee he will EVER be better…

    I like the idea of drafting mcclain if mccoy or suh r gone! I would love to see the bucs pick up at least 2 more 2nd round picks and some mor 3rd and 4th round picks!

  8. zech Says:

    I would like to see the bucs try to trade clayton,ward,graham,stovall possibly for more 2nd and 3rd and 4th round picks!!

  9. JoeBucsSteveCampbell Says:

    Zech-Nobody is going to want those bums, with the exception of Graham, which would, if you’re lucky, give you a 4th round pick. Ward could be a commodity, but nobody will want him with his current salary situation.

  10. wayne Says:

    Why gamble? Keep the pick you have. There are 3 starters up there. And we will get one of them. Yes, Suh is out coveted guy, then McCoy. But Berry is going to start. And he isn’t just a safety. He is very versitile.

  11. gotbbucs Says:

    #1-I don’t think giving up 8 sacks and having 8 penalties makes you an elite left tackle IMO. We’ll have to wait and see, but I think Okung could duplicate those two numbers in his rookie year. Penn is a a decent tackle but I don’t think he’s beyond upgrading and considering that I think all but 1 of the Bucs tackles are FA’s I don’t think it’s as stupid an idea as you’re making it out to be.
    #2-No MLB in the NFL is going to be able to make consistent plays behind the line of scrimmage with Ryan Sims’ and Chris Hovan’s ass’s 5 yards beyond the LOS. Some upgrades to that D-Line would raise the play of everybody on that defense.
    For the record, I don’t think we can go wrong with taking Suh, McCoy, McClain, or Okung, it’s the picks in the 2nd through 5th rounds that are going to make or break this draft. I think that’s probably something that we could both agree on. Lets face it, no matter who we take in the 1st round they’re not going to be able to turn this around by themselves, we’re still looking probably three years down the road before were going to be contending for anything beyond a wild card spot in the playoffs.
