Bucs Go To Idaho For A Tight End

April 30th, 2011

Not just satisfied with picking a tight end who shined in the SEC, the Bucs, with their final pick of the draft, select a tight end for Idaho which plays in the WAC.

Daniel Hardy is the newest Bucs tight end with the second pick of the seventh round.

The positives about Hardy? He’s a good receiver and can exploit creases in the middle and he’s very good at catching passes in traffic.

The negatives about Hardy? He can’t block very well. And he’s not very fast so separation is an issue.

    He’s either camp fodder or practice squad material.

    I beg to differ. WHEN he catches them it looks good, but one of the knocks on him is too many dropped passes. Still, on the PS he might have time to correct the issues.

    I’m not really happy about this pick, but he was pretty much the best of what was left.

    Overall, this has been a very impressive draft. Picks 1-5 were awesome, and 6-7 could turn out to be good.

    The only thing I didn’t like about this draft is that it ended.

    Don’t understand this pick? Is he for special teams or what?
