Freeman’s Pick Is Manbeast Ndamukong Suh

February 27th, 2010

Pat “Vacation Man” Yasinskas, of, did some chillin’ at Disney World with Josh Freeman on Friday.

And Raheem The Dream’s bride revealed that he’s been watching film of college receivers with Greg Olson and Alex Van Pelt, who are interested in his opinion as they consider who the Bucs might draft to fill their many holes at wide receiver.

Now Joe doesn’t believe for a minute that the Bucs’ brass give a crap about Freeman’s opinion — he says he likes Jordan Shipley out of Texas — but Joe thinks it’s nice to make the kid feel wanted. However, Joe would prefer Freeman spend all his film watching legendary NFL quarterbacks.

Despite all that receiver study, Freeman told Vacation Man he would have the Bucs select manbeast Ndamukong Suh with their No. 3 pick.

“I would love to see Suh here,’’ Freeman said.

The Bucs would be wise to listen to Freeman’s thoughts on Suh because their quarterback knows the defensive tackle very well. They first became friends as teammates in a high-school all-star game, saw each other frequently as college foes and were hanging out together at the Super Bowl in Miami a few weeks ago.

“He basically lived in my backfield every time I played against Nebraska,’’ said Freeman, who played at Kansas State. “The drive that that guy has is unbelievable. He’s going to be a great teammate for whoever he goes to. The guy makes plays. He gets in the backfield and nobody can block him. They’re trying to figure out what’s going to help our team the most. If it’s a receiver, it’s a receiver. If it’s get Suh, it’s getting Suh. Anyway you look at it, I’m excited.’’ 

Joe’s not going to moan if the Bucs draft Suh, although there’s no way to know at this point what the team is thinking.

Joe suspects that the Bucs might tip their hand if pricey, almost-32-year-old Chris Hovan is cut in the coming days.

    I really like Shipley.He is talked about as another Wes Welker, & a slot guy; well, he may not as foot-quick as Welker but Shipley is bigger & faster. He can be a #2 WR in my opinion. He is older & more mature than many prospects (cf. Austin Collie), runs good routes, gets open, & catches just about everything that comes his way.

    …and don’t forget Freeman played against Suh AND McCoy multiple times , and he wants Suh.

    …see, anyone who thinks McCoy is better is smoking crack…

    LOL comparing Shipley to Welker and Collie? Lemme guess….Sabby reminds you of Lynch and Toby Gerhart reminds you of Alstott?

    You’re not too bright, Mike.

    we all want a wes welker but more often than not its the qb that makes guys like that…..look at the guys who are throwing to welker & collie….the qb’s and systems make those guys into stars more than those guys being outright stars…welker bounced around a little before new england….they are pure system players on their respective teams….they also thrive off the constant deep accurate threats of great qbs….brady to moss….and manning to wayne….put them on cleveland or detroit and you have at best average receiver……..adam from ny

    ps in fact if you put stroughter on either new england or indy, he has potential to match either of those guys seasons as long as he is a major part of the offense…..the field is potentially so stretched out for those teams that the dink and dunks, and slants are almost a gimme by the defense….as they sort of use a bend but not break attitude towards those quarterbacks…but dont get me wrong, welker is a gritty hardnosed player that any team would love to have including the bucs
