    I actually like this pick. Safety is shallow the rest of the draft.

  3. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Good, solid, safe pick. Let’s get back in the first round and get Doug Martin.

  4. BucNeckid Says:

    or Kuechly:)

  5. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    No. David Wilson is a better idea.

  6. bucs55 Says:

    Don’t waist a high pick on a running back wait and pick up Robert turbin in the 4th

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m okay with Wilson too

  8. Cmurda Says:

    Umm, way to try to see the silver lining but you are foolish if you don’t think Pop Star got played. This is nowhere near who we wanted. Hence the late pick. All this for a 4th rounder instead of staying at 5 and getting MO. Marky thought he was being slick and he got owned. Pure and simple. I can’t believe I was all excited for tonight. I should have known Dom would F this up.

  9. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    We need a CB or LB now. I’m guessing Hightower in the second. Flemming might be okay at CB.

  10. BucNeckid Says:

    Nobody saw this pick coming.
    Claiborne, Richardson, Kalil, Kuechly, but never Barron.
    At least the anger directed so far is at the Popstar.
    Barron’s good but Best Player Available????

  11. DAN Says:

    i would trade the rest of the picks for keukly personaly

  12. Terry Says:

    Bleh…This pick doesn’t excite me.

  13. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    There went Luke.

  14. BucNeckid Says:

    Now we have to play AGAINST Kuechly.

  15. Patrick Says:

    The pick is ok…….BUT NO ONE had us taking this guy! I feel like this was a bad value pick. Dom wanted Claiborne and got owned by Jerry!

  16. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    He’s the best Safety in the draft…so at 7 it’s not a bad pick.

    Cornerback is deep…I would like to see us trade up into the second again and get a CB and LB.

    espn reported the bucs wanted barron all along

  18. BucsFanInChina Says:

    Would y’all rather have Ronde Barber playing safety his last year as a Buc??? This is not the sexiest pick and the Cowboys made a phenomenal move, but we needed to fill the gap at safety just as much, if not more than LB or CB

  19. Aceofaerospace Says:

    I’m officially on the Dominick sucks bandwagon. He’ll never convince me Barron is who he wanted.

  20. bucs55 Says:

    Mark barron was suppose to go top 10 I think its a great pick we need a safety expecually one that could come in the box this draft is full of good corners not wit real good safetys

  21. Brown Bag Says:

    So we won the Dan Sneideer-style free agency race. Now we pooch the draft by getting snookered by Jerry. Perhaps we end up with the better player, but you can’t help but think it would’ve been safer to get Claiborne for more fan excitement.

    Color me confused.

  22. tylund Says:

    espn was saying even before the cowboys took claiborne that the bucs wanted barron all along

  23. deminion Says:

    i like barron but come on dom i wuda settled for floyd heck even ingram no offense to barron but dom blew it with that being said Go bucs

  24. Terry Says:

    Claiborn for Barron and a 4th. I don’t think you make that trade.

  25. tylund Says:

    why does everyone not mention the 7th

  26. chargedcbh Says:

    So you like the pick? So your saying you rather have Barron than Claibourne? You are CRAZY!!!! What is harder to find? Then we only get a 4th round pick out of the deal? This is HORRIBLE!!! PERIOD!!!!!!! You can spin it all you want, this is just STUPID!!! There is NOTHING you say, Barron is a good player but is he going to help us in this division? We can go into opening day starting Wright and Biggers if Barber is playing Safety.

    A safety. At #7.

    Lowest value position on the defense.


  28. TpDoggie Says:

    I am not sure what to think. How good is this guy? I hope we get a winner in the fourth.

  29. mikeck Says:

    Fact is, we needed a relax. Remember MArk D did get the best WR and O lineman available in free agency. You guys loved him then.
