Dominik Opens Up

April 28th, 2011

It’s draft day! And the courts have dropped another hammer on the NFL lockout!

Merry Christmas! Joe can almost smell football.

In case you missed it on the radio, listen here to Mark Dominik’s pre-draft interview with Justin “The Commish” Pawlowski of WDAE-AM 620. Joe’s brought you nibbles over the last handful of days, but here’s the whole thing. Click the arrow below or download here.

Among the many takes, Joe finds Dominik’s comments about linebacker prospect Dontay Moch and the Bucs playing a 3-4 defense particularly interesting. Plus, Dominik also says offensive tackles are the strength of the 2011 draft outside of defensive end.

Joe would have no problem with the Bucs landing a beast of a right tackle with an early pick. Very hard to go wrong with a stout offensive lineman.

    Dominik doesn’t seem to understand that people weren’t upset when Dom drafted Freeman because of the player. They were booing because all of the moves that were made prior to get 5 other QBs in the building. We had enough QBs already. It didn’t make any sense to anyone why a team would need 6 QBs.

    deeb, it was all a smoke screen, maybe an expensive one, but thats the price of landing a franchise qb.

    deeb, no I’m pretty sure people were upset over the player also…

    Thanks, but not sure what you are referring to with JP. He loathes the draft so much he took yesterday off, he wasn’t on the air.

    JP may be the only red-blooded American male who despises the draft.

    JP as in Justin Pawloski

    No, people were upset over the Freeman pick. They did not have 6 QBs until later. Most of that was trying to find out who would start while Freeman sat a year and who could be a good mentor for him. Turns out he didn’t need any of it, just s good QB coach.

    TO ALL:
    People can be upset about a pick because we all have an idea what we think they should do, just don’t roast the player (like many did with Freeman). Whoever they pick, give the kid a chance (which takes a few years, 3/4 of a season McCoy haters)

    Ive been talking about the Bucs maybe moving to a base 3-4 defense for a long time now. First brought it up about midway through last season when they acquired Alex Magee and Al Woods, lineman coming from 3-4 defenses. I think it will all depend on how the draft falls. If they end up drafting enough guys with 3-4 skillsets, guys like Cam Jordan or Akeem Ayers, Dontay Moch or Chris Carter- don’t be shocked if they play more 3-4 than 4-3 next year. I was ridiculed by many on this site but those that said it was impossible can eat their crow now.

    I think 3-4 helps disguise our awful LB core because of what will soon be a tremendous DL if Price ever can get on the field and make an impact. With that said 3-4 would demand that we have a relentless OLB that can rush the passer. Someone like Aldon can stand up and put his hand in the dirt. I also think houston looked better standing up at times
