Gerald McCoy Going Back To High School

Back to school.

Yes, there is no question the Bucs wanted to overhaul the roster in the offseason. As Bucs coach Lovie Smith was fond of saying over and over again at the NFL Combine, whenever he spoke of a specific player, he would always add, “… but we were 4-12.”

With 19 new players and the draft hasn’t even happened yet, it’s pretty drastic turnover. For one Bucs stud, it’s something akin to old times.

Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said with so many new faces, the start of conditioning for the team was like the first day of high school.

“It’s like being a freshmen in high school,” GMC said. “You go in and you know a couple of people. Most of the people in the school you are like, ‘Man, I’ve ain’t never seen them before.'”

    Before L&L our roster was much deprived of talent, depth.

    The talent:contract ratio (by DOM) was no mas goodaloñes.

    i don’t care what the bucs do in the first three rounds, just as long as they pick up logan thomas/ 6″6 coleman and another linebacker in the later rounds. I don’t think a tight end or qb is necessary in this draft except fore the a fore mentioned logan thomas.

    If they could trade down and go cb, O-line, DE (from stanford preferably) in the first three rounds I would be cool with that. As a new fan I can say that I am not sold on your starting runningback and would trade him, glennon, and vincent jackson for future high draft picks along with picks this year. let the team learn the systems and build a solid foundation and next years class will just fall in line with the seasoned group. NO window is closed, ATL will be a joke (bad o-line and no defense/running game), and carolina will have fired their coach cut their runningbacks leaving tampa bay to own the division for 3 to 4 years.
