Bucs Will Not Pass On Suh Or McCoy

April 4th, 2010

It’s an outside shot, the Bucs could have their pick of both Big XII defensive tackles manbeast Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy. This would be the virtual wet dream of Bucs fans.

But hold up: There is still a chance the Bucs would still trade down, given the fact the draft is allegedly so loaded and given the fact the Bucs have more holes to fill than a screen door.

It seems eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune thinks this is nonsense, that the Bucs will not trade down if Suh and/or McCoy are available at No. 3.

Q: There has been some talk that even if Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy are still available at pick No. 3, the Bucs might pass them up for some other player because they would be very expensive to actually sign. If this were to happen, wouldn’t that put a stake in the heart of the repeated attempts by the Bucs organization and the Glazer family that money will never be an issue in rebuilding?

A: It’s difficult to imagine the Bucs passing up Suh or McCoy at No. 3 in favor of an Eric Berry or an offensive lineman. Moving back from the third overall pick due to financial considerations would be a devastating blow for the franchise if one of those two elite defensive tackles are still on the board. At this point, the Bucs have stockpiled enough draft picks that they don’t need to budge from that No. 3 spot. If Suh and McCoy go 1-2, then I can see the Bucs entertaining offers for the third pick, but even in that scenario, I can’t see them sliding back farther than 10th.

Joe’s going to have some insight on who might be available at No. 3 from one of the preeminent football writers in the country tomorrow, so please check in on Monday.

Joe will have some good stuff.

    They wont pass on mccoy or suh if they are there. I recall The Bucs offered Hayensworht more money then the redskins. in my opinon he would have came if we did not have a no name coach

  2. SLY Says:

    I agree with TJ, they won’t pass on a franchise DT. Most likely one of them will be there. If the Rams take Bradford & the Lions take an OT (which is very possible because they need to protect Stafford) it will be interesting who the Bucs take. Personally, I am hoping for McCoy.

    if that happens, I see the Bucs taking a WR and a DE in the second round & a CB or WR in the third depending who is available.

  8. TJ Says:

    I hope we get Suh I just think he is the closest thing to sapp in years. Mccoy reminds me of Tommy Harris from the bears good but not great. Mccoy had 6 sacks in a pass happy league and he is not that strong which was proven at the combine, if the lions pass on suh and mccoy watch if we take suh mccoy may fall out of the top 10 I gurantee it

  9. Joe Says:

    Radio Mushmouth:

    No, Jim Flynn is not the witch. Joe doesn’t have a thing against him. Though Joe has never met him, from all accounts Flynn is a nice guy.

    Joe understands why he would want to jump ship however.

    (Seems one of Joe readers, “Jimmy,” learned of this a week ago. Hhhmm?)

  10. Eric S Says:

    I don’t think there will be any surprises in the top 2. Bradford will go to STL and Suh will go to Detroit. Everyone is dreaming if you think Detroit will pass on Suh. So TB will get McCoy. I am happy with that. Should be a very good player and will make the rest of the D better.

    Aha. So it is not a Bucs person. It looks like it might be Peter King? John Clayton?

  11. Eric Says:

    I was kinda hoping it was going to be Radio Mushmouth interviewing one of the Glazer boys…………………..

  12. BigMacAttack Says:

    Did Joe just offer Jimmy a part time job?

    “This would be the virtual wet dream of Bucs fans.” Wet dream? What the hell kind of analogy is that? From a journalist? Disgusting.

  14. adam Says:

    would somebody please give Richbucsfan a golden shower and get him out of here…..maybe call in tiger woods for the job…but hose this virgin eared creampuff down and tell him to keep it movin’….adam from ny

    or crack the back of an empty caybrew bottle and swipe a buck fifty across his ugly noggin.
