Dominik Seems To Approve TE Draft

May 10th, 2014

A lot of Bucs fans seemed to raise more than an eyebrow last night when the Bucs drafted Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. His selection gave the Bucs seven tight ends.

Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht both claimed that ASJ was so high on their boards when the Bucs were on the clock, they couldn’t pass him up.

Lovie said ASJ was the highest rated tight end on the Bucs draft board. Though he didn’t specifically cite ASJ, former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik this morning did mention the Bucs and tight ends.

Co-hosting with Howard David on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Dominik explained his thought that the Bucs were in the market for a tight end in the first round.

When discussing new Lions tight end Eric Ebron, Dominik said, “I thought he would have been in play for the Bucs at No. 7.”

Dominik then discussed how having two solid tight ends is really a strong offensive asset for teams.

Dominik wasn’t far off in his assesment. It turns out the Bucs were looking at tight ends, though not in the first round, in the second round.

Good observation by Dominik. And probably better than most of the frauds who are responsible for this galling mock draft industrial complex that assaults us.

    Ok, I guess that means he’s better draft prognosticator when he has a hands off approach. Also, you just couldn’t help yourself Joe, could you.

    I like ASJ. Personally, he reminds me of Jason Witten.

    No other teams but the Bucs has three weapons that are 6’5 or taller. ASJ is a perfect NFL tight end and makes our offense dangerous esp in the red zone. Licht and Lovie have given us a player at 3 major need positions

    Schiano requirements=captains/buccaneer men
    Lovie requirements= >6’5″ tall

  4. Matt B Says:

    Jeremy Stevens is another tall TE out of Washington. I hear he’s a free agent.

    Sorry, that was in poor taste.

    I love the ASJ pick. Funny as hell Dom talking about the importance of “…having two solid tight ends is really a strong offensive asset for team.” Yea, and he did such a good job with getting us Luke “are you on the IR yet” Stocker to fill that role. Oh well, water under the bridge.

    I thought Lovie was going to draft all defense? Man were we wrong. lol

  7. MadMax Says:

    Se what else we did Dom? We drafted O line!! Another fatal flaw of yours that Im sure added to why you were fired.

  8. sho-nuff Says:

    who cares?…this is the bust GM that kept Luke Stockard on the roster….so glad YOUR boy is gone….

  9. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    sooooo, Lovie changing out several players is a slap in the face of Schiano, But Lovie replacing most of the rockstars pro-bowl roster …

    Can we take at least one day off from misrepresenting and distorting
    Joe. –Joe
