Bucs Nab A Punter

April 24th, 2010

Hard to get excited about the Bucs drafting a punter, especially one with flowing blond hair.

At least they needed a punter.

The newest Buccaneer is Brent Bowden, out of Virginia Tech. taken with the third pick in the sixth round today. Internet searches reveal he comes from a family of punters. That’s better than a family of criminals or lawyers.

Kick your heart out, son.

    Proof that Dom and Morris are complete idiots that hvae no idea what they are doing !! We already have a punter! (LOL).

    Just wanted to see what it feels like to be negative about absolutely every piece of Buc news.

    why u know about special teams?? ir the ST Coach wants a punter why not give him a punter??

  4. jake Says:

    Punting is such a huge part of the game which often times can dictate field postion for an entire half. If the kid is that good, I have no problem with the pick.

  5. Larry Brackins Says:

    I think they were counting on Mesko being there and panicked.

  6. CreamsiclePasties Says:

    with Carlton Mitchell and Jonathon Dwyer still on the board?

    I dunno……not really loving this one

  7. Jerry Says:

    In college he had 70 punts inside the 20 and averages 44 yards per punt. Most rank him the 3rd best punter in the draft…some rank him as the 2nd best.

    Think it should be noted Mesko went to the Pats in the 5th, not saying if we had our 5th we should of taken him but I just find that funny… I can honestly say before this year I knew knew the true importance of a 5th round pick

    /part sarcasm

    what’s the story on this kid??? Is he good?

  10. Big Marlon B Says:

    i understand the importance of special teams, punting in particular, in terms of establishing good field position. but why not take DE Greg Hardy? sure he has had issues with inconsistency in the past…but this guy has some serious talent and the potential to develop into a solid starter. at an area of relative weakness with no clear cut starters, why not take a chance on a guy like him? isn’t that what the late rounds of the draft are for? not finding instant studs, but guys that can be developed. im sure the punter could have still been available in the 7th round, or even to trade back into the 6th. oh well, im pretty pleased with the way the rest of the draft has turned out, so i wont be one of these guys who bashes EVERYYYYYYY move made by the front office.

    I’d rather have had them take Blount from Oregon…Cadillac’s kneew, Graham = 30, Ward = 29….can’t say we couldn’t use a bruising back…

  12. Lakeland Bob Says:

    Damm bucs,lets pick up Blount from Oregon.He’s a steal this late.

  13. Patrick Says:

    We don’t need a running back. That would be another waste! We got Cadillac, GRAHAM, who everyone has already dismissed, and Ward. FYI, Ward is not a bust, he just simply did not get many carries last year. Same with Caddy. Also, you all are worried about Caddy’s unreliability. Not a big deal!! That’s why we have Graham and Ward. Also, Raheem needs to move Graham to running back. Go and out and get an actual fullback and let Earnest get us yards!!

    We need a defensive end and an offensive lineman with our next picks.

  14. admin Says:

    Joe here,

    Take the running back. Caddy, Ward and Graham, have limitied shelf life.

  15. Patrick Says:

    No, take an offensive or defensive lineman. Caddy, Ward, and Graham will be even better if we improve that area!

  16. Vince Says:

    Gotta agree with Joe on this one. We need to bring a young back in NOW, to learn the system and get primed and ready for the day that EG & DW’s age catch up with them…Don’t get me wrong, I love Caddy, but I’m not putting all my egg’s in that basket.

  17. florida girl Says:

    We don’t need another back…plenty in the stable. Rolle in the seventh. Great player better charachter. Low risk high reward pick. If he only plays for five years its still a great deal considering how many former bucs draftees are no longer in the league. Rolle the dice dominik

  18. Eric Says:

    Get the Rhodes Scholar!

    Hed be good to keep Williams straight!

  19. admin Says:

    Joe here,

    Florida girl – We’ve got 5 seven round picks. We have the oldest running back stable around. …Get a young beast in there to learn. Clifton Smith cant’ carry the ball ….Rolle would be nice too.

    Joe would love to see Rolle hang with Talib. …a fly on the walll.

  21. Vince Says:

    I wouldn’t mind us grabbing Rolle with one of our mutiple 7th rounders…But maybe that’s the Nole in me talking. Regardless, we DO need a back.

  22. Rey Says:

    Please God let the Bucs pick Myron Rolle in the 7th. That would be a good pick to replace Barber or as a Nickel back. He is that good!

  23. Vince Says:

    Myron is a Strong Safety Rey, not a corner.

  24. Lakeland Bob Says:

    Rolle just went offthe board.

  25. Florida Girl Says:

    Rolle is gone…go for the running back now.

    Does it matter to you? Really?

    Just start bitching now – save yourself some time…

  27. Mr. lucky Says:

    Isn’t that a photoshopped picture of Chris Sims with hair?

  28. Patrick Says:

    What a waste!! You pick up punters in free agency not the draft!!!! We needed an O-lineman. And a defensive end! Don’t we already have a punter?!?!?!

  29. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Yes we have a punter ,Patrick , but he sucks.

    I have no problem with the pick , as long as this kid is a stud who’ll be punting for us for the next 10 years.

  30. Big Marlon B Says:

    i really would’ve like to have seen Greg Hardy in this spot. he’d make for a nice rotation with Kyle Moore, Greg White (i refuse to acknowledge him as “Stylez”), and Tim Crowder. and Myron Rolle would’ve added some nice depth at safety if those damn Titans hadn’t snatched him up 3 picks before us.
