NFL Draft Rounds Two And Three, Open Thread

April 26th, 2013


Joe apologizes for not doing this last night. But Joe guesses there is more keen interest in the draft tonight.

Have at it guys. Let’s hear the chatter, including what Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik should do.

Should the Bucs trade up in the second round?

Should the Bucs draft a tight end at No. 43?

Should the Bucs draft a cornerback at No. 43?

Should the Bucs grab a defensive linemen at No. 43?

Should the Bucs goΒ linebackerΒ at No. 43?

As always boys and girls, do behave.

  1. Mike J Says:

    If Kevin Minter is there, take him.If not & Jessie Williams is available, select him.

  2. RastaMon Says:

    Eddie Lacy @ 43

  3. PRBucFan Says:

    LSU’s TM??? Maybe so lol

  4. Kalind Says:

    Trade down and package some later pick and get two twos and keep the 3. Draft The CB from Boise and either Hankins/Short/Hunt/Jenkins

  5. kansasbuc Says:

    We should get john jenkins. Big and will be double teamed.

  6. Macabee Says:

    The Bucs are going to trade back into the 2nd round. Pardon the pun, but it’s a Dominik trademark! Enjoy tonight!

  7. lurker Says:

    let’s get ready to rummmmmmmmbbbbllllle

  8. Oldguy Says:

    I would say don’t trade up or down. Keep all the picks. As Dom says, “it is a thick draft.” I think that means that there are lots of good (if not great) players through all the rounds. So, if we’re lucky, we’ll get seven good guys in the draft. Plus Revis. Looking forward to the picks. Get us a pass rusher (or two) please!

  9. Mitch Says:

    CB Jamar Taylor embodies everything that is a ‘buccaneer man’ … Go get him

  10. Joe Says:

    Eddie Lacy @ 43

    No way Dominik drafts a backup at 43.

  11. lurker Says:

    wow, surprised noone has asked for a qb… {;~)



  13. Warrenfb12 Says:

    I’d like to see Ertz be the pick here. Or best available DT. Scoop a QB like Landry Jones or Tyler Bray somewhere in the next several rounds.

  14. lurker Says:

    and they’re off!

  15. Devin W. Says:

    I would love to see the Bucs snag another pick or two somewhere between rounds 2 and 5, preferably picks for today, but I am not expecting it. This year’s draft is packed with great value in those mid rounds and I just hope Dominik does everything he can to maximize the value of his picks.

    Since there are so many good corners left in rounds 2 and 3, if Schiano and Dominik haven’t fallen in love with any one particular corner by the time their pick comes up, I would love to see them trade back 5-10 spots and snag another 4th/swap a 4th and pick up another 3rd. If they can draft a CB, DT, TE, LB, and DE, before the 5th round, we will be looking to be in great shape! GO BUCS!

  16. Jason SC Says:

    Margus Hunt…..that is my guess….then a trade back up to get Kasheem Greene…..

  17. lurker Says:

    tennessee trade up with sf

  18. lurker Says:

    wow, swap 2’s give up 7th this year and 3rd next year

  19. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Really hope we take a pass rushing DT.

  20. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    lurker, we don’t have a 7th.

  21. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Oh, you meant the other trade, lol. My bad.

  22. Raphael Says:

    Dang , I heard its Ertz !

  23. lurker Says:

    raphael with the inside scoop…do tell

  24. fnerd Says:

    Well forget the calls for Ertz. Gone to the Eagles.

  25. Jeffrey Says:

    Hopefully Geno Smith will still be there and we can get him so we have a valid guy to replace Freeman if he starts performing as bad as he did mid season last year.

  26. lurker Says:

    san fran prob thuoght ertz would fall?

  27. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    btw, Joe, thanks for creating a draft thread πŸ™‚

  28. andres Says:

    No Ertz. Crap!

  29. Rob Kees Says:

    Is Manti heading here?



  31. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    D Dlay is off the board. Lions

  32. Youpeoplearesodumb Says:

    Lurker is having a little problem following along tonight

  33. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Slay I mean.

  34. DjoshFreeman Says:

    Damnit we could’ve traded a fourth to get up there to get him? Who now Williams or Jenkins?

  35. Spokmann Says:

    Well, the Eagles just took the tight end I liked, Ertz, Zach.

  36. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    My bet is Bengals will take a RB.

  37. BucFreak Says:

    Wow. Darius Slay picked before Johnathan Banks. Could there be a problem with Banks?

  38. lurker Says:

    not really, but thanks for playin’

  39. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


  40. Devin W. Says:

    No way Ertz would’ve fallen to us. A lot of guys’ mocks had him as high has a the bottom of round 1. It would’ve been a no-brainer to draft him if he did fall, but it was pretty unlikely.

    Looks like Slay is drafted. Not super down about that, but he was one of the guys I had on my board for round 2 Buc potentials. Hopefully there isn’t a run on the CBs…

  41. lurker Says:

    damn, these kids have kids

  42. fnerd Says:

    Good call Bonzai

  43. Spokmann Says:

    Funny, the Raiders lost a pick for a guy thats no longer on there team.

  44. lurker Says:

    but you were right bonzai…lol

  45. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    My bet is the Chargers traded up to take Manti Teo. Finally.

  46. Raphael Says:

    I bet we go defense , Hankins or hunt. Or green

  47. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I hope thwy don’t take him…part of me wouldn’t mind having a guy with a chip here…switch Foster to outside.

  48. lurker Says:

    no lacey

  49. Joe Says:


    Can’t remember where, but Joe read a story about a month ago that many teams thought Slay was a better corner, and it wasn’t a knock on Banks, but a credit to Slay.

  50. PRBucFan Says:

    Seems like we are staying put

  51. lurker Says:

    oops lacy

  52. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    We may need to reach on this pick. A lot of good players are going to drop.

  53. Raphael Says:


  54. David Says:

    Wanted Zach Ertz…. What will we do for our TE? Let’s go get MARGUS HUNT.

  55. Devin W. Says:

    Watch the Jets take a QB πŸ˜€

  56. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Hmmmn….Wonder if the Jets will take Geno Smith, get rid of Sanchez?

  57. fnerd Says:

    Chargers went catfishin’

  58. lurker Says:

    will the jets take geno smith?

  59. BOb Says:

    Thank god. Now i can (hopefully) stop hearing the name manti teo

  60. Anzac Buc Says:

    Arthur Brown

  61. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    lol, Bob.

  62. fnerd Says:

    Agreed Bob

  63. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I think Jets will surely take Smith. Sanchez will play one more year or be traded.

  64. Raphael Says:

    Geno smith

  65. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    And Smith, of course…will be a bust.

  66. Devin W. Says:


  67. Spokmann Says:

    Wow, and some of you think Dom is bad.

  68. lurker Says:

    wow, sanchez, tebow, and smith!

  69. BOb Says:

    More press. More losing

  70. fnerd Says:

    Rich Eisen is beside himself. Hysterical.

  71. lurker Says:

    can they take different parts and make an above average qb?

  72. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I would take Sanchex as a backup…a certain irony to it πŸ˜‰

  73. Illuminati Says:

    Well, we know either Short, Hankins, Taylor, or Banks will be there at 43 if nothing else.

  74. lurker Says:

    lol, revis is glad to be gone from there

  75. fnerd Says:

    Is there anyone maning the phones at the Jets Fans Suicide Hotline?!

  76. lurker Says:

    mayock showing geno’s misses

  77. lurker Says:

    and the good news is that the jets won’t take a qb next year!

  78. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    We should take a CB coming up, but we need a DT more. Think DT Bennie Logan will slip to us in rd 3 or should we reach a little?

    With the run on CBs, I say gamble on DT and take a CB.

  79. Raphael Says:

    We might trade back…hope it’s not true

  80. lurker Says:

    ouch…he said “we’re playoff bound this year”

  81. lurker Says:

    if we trade back, we will for a third for next year and…?

  82. the Baron Buc Says:

    Please take Jamar.

  83. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I think 49ers go…Oline depth.

  84. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Mark Sanchez just threw his remote at the TV and missed by 7 feet.

  85. Devin W. Says:

    I bet the Bucs trade back 5-10 spots. Watch it happen.

  86. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wow…they went Dline depth.

  87. lurker Says:

    lol…eisen saying smith might throw to revis in week 1

  88. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Tank is off the board!

  89. the Baron Buc Says:

    There goes Tank….. Would’ve looked great in pewter.

  90. lurker Says:

    actually, i heard he fumbled the remote

  91. Raphael Says:

    Bills will go WR …. USC. WR

  92. BOb Says:

    Just a note: please dont say stuff like…..” oh the raiders took x player” we’re all watching the draft. Just a waisted post. Sorry had to say it

  93. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Bills take Robert Woods, WR

    Okay, 3 picks away…call it now!

    CB Johnathan Banks
    DE Damontre Moore
    CB David Amerson\

  94. fnerd Says:

    Agree Baron

  95. Rob Kees Says:


  96. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Bob…we’re in a draft thread to try and predict the pick…that’s the fun of it! lol

  97. lurker Says:

    aren’t all posts wasted? lmao

    ohhhh you meant get thinner or fatter?

  98. fnerd Says:

    Short, Bonzai

  99. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I hope Honey Badger is Mr. Irrel. lol

  100. fnerd Says:

    I just want D-meat at this point

  101. liveinGAbutcantstanddirtybirds Says:

    A DT. Hawkins

  102. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Who you calling short, fnerd??! you been talking to my widfe?! πŸ˜‰

  103. lurker Says:

    lol, bonzai. freudian slip?

  104. BOb Says:


  105. fnerd Says:

    Too funny Bonz

  106. liveinGAbutcantstanddirtybirds Says:

    I would not mind Banks

  107. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I hope Banks myself. Was my mock pick as a secondary selection.

  108. lurker Says:

    what dt should we take? or is it a cb?

  109. BOb Says:

    Bonzai: i hear ya! just wasing time when people type out what everyone already knows

  110. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I think smart move is CB…since there is a run on them. But would be very happy with a DT.

  111. BOb Says:

    Here we go

  112. lurker Says:

    i think dominick is happy the way things unfolded

  113. lurker Says:

    wow, fast

  114. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


  115. Kevin Says:

    Nice go banks

  116. liveinGAbutcantstanddirtybirds Says:

    Banks is it

  117. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Banks it is!

  118. fnerd Says:

    Nice Bonz!

  119. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wright is nervous now.

  120. PRBucFan Says:

    Brent Grimes lol

  121. Raphael Says:

    Solid pick ….I wanted DT tho

  122. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Did Tray just say the Bucs have Brent Grimes???

  123. lurker Says:

    and he picked tebow off in 2009?!? lmao


  124. DjoshFreeman Says:

    Perfect fit…revis will make him a star

  125. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    lol….John Clayton…now that was funny.

  126. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh and next up DT

    I wasn’t too enthused with the Banks pick even though he was an early early possibility.

  127. feelthepewterpower Says:

    ESPN and Mel Kiper dissed Banks, GOOD NEWS, Buccs Fans!! “He’s slow”, “I thought he regressed in his coverage skills this past offseason”. Dilfer came into save the Day though, good sign Kiper disliked out pick! πŸ˜€

  128. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Panthers will take DT Kawann Short. At least I think so.

  129. BOb Says:

    Hopefully this means last years backfield debacle wont be happening anytime soon

  130. BucFanFromLa Says:

    Love it!!!

  131. fnerd Says:

    Well I don’t know how to pick for the Bucs but I can pick for the Panthers. One off.

  132. BOb Says:

    Bonzai: copying twitter doesnt count bud

  133. lurker Says:

    2 dt’s for carolina? are they the bucs?

  134. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Also funny to see Sapp standing there admiring the applause, and the Commish telling him to get his arse to the podium considering Sapp labeled Revis a “me guy”. πŸ™‚

  135. fnerd Says:

    Panthers have a scary d-line now

  136. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Well, it is about time Dominick pulls off his annual trade. My bet is it will be to take a DT, then the REST is depth.

    Really hope we end up with Landry Jones later though.

  137. Sneedy16 Says:

    Panthers pulling a Dom

  138. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Okay, I predict Cowboys will take Gavin Escobar…TE.

    Jones sucks at drafting.

  139. Jerry Says:

    Banks needs to develop some. Wright will still start the season.

  140. MR.T Says:

    Figured it would be a cb or dt. For 6’2 the guy is light needs to add some muscle weight which I’m sure he will.

  141. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I bet the Steelers go RB…was predicted they would do so in the first round, so they likely will here…probably Bell.

  142. fnerd Says:

    You’re right, Jerry, but if he simply picks up a playbook he’s already developed more than Gorer

  143. fnerd Says:

    Damn Bonz! Another one. So who are the Bucs gonna pick in the sixth since you seem to have a crystal ball.

  144. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I have no clue…I’m just looking at remaining and trying to make a good call. Much easier when I know who is already gone. Wish my mock would hit more.

    Steelers did take Bell!

  145. Raphael Says:

    Giants are getting Hankins …hmmm

  146. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Giants go WR?

  147. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Nope, got that one wrong! Darn!

  148. Raphael Says:

    You need a better twitter source bro

  149. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Will the Bears go RB here? What else do they need?

  150. the Baron Buc Says:

    Anyone think Banks seems like Myon Lewis without the dreads? Both had similar plus/ minus on draft day.

  151. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Frankly, I think the Bears should get a QB, but who knows?

  152. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    the Baron Buc Says:
    April 26th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    “Anyone think Banks seems like Myon Lewis without the dreads? Both had similar plus/ minus on draft day.”

    I think Banks will be a much better player.

  153. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Darn, looks like my roll is over πŸ™

  154. the Baron Buc Says:

    Hope so bonsai….. God, I hope so.

  155. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Bucs say Banks wanted to come to Tampa and was worried when they traded for Revis.

    There went Amerson.

  156. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Johnthan Banks says he grew up watching the Bucs win the Super Bowl and playing for them is a dream come true.

    Don’t I feel old now….

  157. PRBucFan Says:

    I don’t know how I feel bout Banks, hopefully we get TM

  158. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Will the Bucs trade up now? We are entering that window of opportunity.

  159. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I don’t see the Bucs taking another CB. Banks also returns kicks as well. We have decent depth there now.

  160. fnerd Says:

    Why are some folks down on a freakin’ Jim Thorpe Award winner. It’s not like they just hand that out to some chump DB.

  161. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    fnerd, are you watching ESPN or NFL Network?

  162. fnerd Says:

    both. wish I had another choice. these dudes are officially painful to watch.

  163. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    49ers traded up? They’ll do anything to get rid of picks, lol. If only we had the same problem.

  164. BigMacAttack Says:

    The Bucs must have seen something special with Banks. I like big CB’s and hopefully his game speed is better than his 40. At least it’s a position of need.

    Now go get me a Big D Tackle, Dom.

  165. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Here’s a thought…does Banks mean no more Ronde? πŸ™

  166. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    BigMacAttack Says:
    “Now go get me a Big D Tackle, Dom.”


    Could we see the Bucs take DT Bennie Logan in Round 3? They want a pass rusher next to GMC.

  167. fnerd Says:

    I wonder if the Falcons take Damontre Moore

  168. lurker Says:


  169. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Looks like RBs are starting a run. hehe….irony in that statement πŸ˜‰

  170. Rickster Says:

    I think we’ve seen the last of ronde. Clearly we are not waiting on him to make a decision and no way he rides the pine for his last year’s. Plus his iron man streak would be done as well. I truly think this is it for ronde.

  171. the Baron Buc Says:


  172. fnerd Says:

    Round 3. D-meat dammit!

  173. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Man, I hope Bennie Logan is there for us when we pick. 15 sacks in his senior year, 309 lbs. Handles double teams well.

  174. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Chiefs need a TE here.

  175. lurker Says:


    i think you mean pun

  176. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Oh wow…forgot I paused the dvr, lol…I was a pick behind πŸ˜‰

  177. the Baron Buc Says:

    I know we need help on D Line, but wish the would take Jordan Poyer from OSU.. Really like that kid.

  178. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    lurker Says:
    April 26th, 2013 at 8:43 pm


    “i think you mean pun”

    Yeah…I kind of overdo puns…drives the sons crazy, hehe.

  179. the Baron Buc Says:

    Nice call with the KC TE Bonsai…. You’re on a roll.

  180. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Unfortunately I called it too late…the pick was already made and because the DVR wasn’t live I didn’t know, lol.

  181. lurker Says:

    so who will the bucs pick?

  182. lurker Says:

    it is lining up for dline, just like it lined up for cb in the second

  183. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    No QB for the Browns…I don’t think they want one early.

  184. fnerd Says:

    Damn Eagles!

  185. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Noooooo!!!!!! There went the guy I wanted πŸ™

  186. fnerd Says:

    Do we go for Khaseem Greene OLB Rutgers?

  187. fnerd Says:

    God please don’t let it be one of the QBs

  188. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    May as well wait till Round 4 to get a DT now. Dominick is going to need to find one in free agency or hope to get lucky. Brandon Williams maybe…but he’s more of a depth pick.

  189. lurker Says:

    the jets will take dline too

  190. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    fnerd, I could live with a LB with our pick. Although, I think the grades are higher for the ILBs. I was never in favor of moving Foster outside, but it might be worth considering if the BPA is ILB.

  191. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Thank god HE is off the board now!

  192. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Prediction, Card get new GM next year.

  193. fnerd Says:

    Agreed Bonz. I don’t see anyone that stands out as someone who will make GMac better. Damn.

  194. Raphael Says:

    Kaseem green …the tackling machine

  195. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Bucs may have to reach for a DT…get the best of what’s left. Sigh.

    I suppose a TE might work, anyone left?

  196. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Could go OT, I forgot we need that as well.

  197. Joe Says:

    There’s an outside linebacker out there from Rutgers who was a captain.

    Just saying.

  198. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I have no idea who to take here. I’m so made at the Eagles, lol.

    Reach for DT, OT or take a WR for the slot?

  199. Couch Fan Says:

    Am I the only one wanting an offensive weapon? Keenan Allen is still out there.

  200. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I forgot about that guy, Joe. Greene, right?

  201. Raphael Says:

    Jets get a OG. ….

  202. Raphael Says:

    Hoping for Kaseem Green from Rutgers !

  203. lurker Says:

    so i don’t know these players or teams…lol

  204. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Couch, I think the needs on defense are bigger. Plus Schiano is a Defense guy. DT and OLB are the biggest needs left on the team.

    Will likely resign Clark after the draft.

  205. BOb Says:

    Hope for uga washington

  206. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I bet they surprise us with QB.

  207. Couch Fan Says:


  208. lurker Says:

    what? who?

  209. fnerd Says:

    Oh God NOOOOOO!!!!

  210. Raphael Says:

    WOW !

  211. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    uhhhh…I was joking Dominick!

  212. Couch Fan Says:

    HAHAHAH! I love it!!!

  213. Raphael Says:

    Wtf …. John Jenkins and Kaseem green were sitting there …

  214. lurker Says:

    why not nassib? or wait til 4th, etc

  215. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    It isn’t a message, lol. It’s for a backup. Glennon is NOT a threat.

  216. lurker Says:

    2 nfl network guys “love” it

  217. BOb Says:

    Bonzai: again regurgitating twitter

  218. lurker Says:

    wr terrance williams

  219. lurker Says:


  220. Jerry Says:

    Well if Josh has another one of his mental breakdowns….his days in Tampa are done.

  221. Couch Fan Says:

    Your right Glennon is not a threat this year. But it’ll be very interesting if Free starts the season slow.

  222. the Baron Buc Says:

    Mayock said “glaring inconsistencies” with Glennon on NFL Network… Uhhh, don’t we already have that?

  223. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    My working theory is that they planned on QB in the 4th, but when the value DTs were taken by other teams, they decided to go QB so that they could go DT in the 4th.

    At least…that’s what I’m trying to convince myself.

  224. MR.T Says:

    surprising, clearly a developmental project and backup for freeman. should be an upgrade over Dan O hopefully

  225. Drew Says:

    Surprised no drafted Leon Sandcastle. He may be selected with the last pick as Mr. Irrelevant.

  226. MR.T Says:

    surprises me a bit the bucs haven’t been active in moving up or down, I guess they are ok with waiting to see who falls to them

  227. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Mike Glennon was a Schiano pick.

  228. Anzac Buc Says:

    Akeem Spence in the 4th makes sense as a run stuffer and depth
