NFL Draft Day 2, Live Blog

May 9th, 2014

bucs cheerleader 0801Here we go folks. The 2014 NFL draft resumes shortly. What will the Bucs do? Will they add another receiver (smart) or decide to take care of the offensive line, which is begging for bodies at guard, or, dare Joe say, Bucs offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford reunites with his long-time friend Derek Carr?

The possibilities continue and Joe is still excited to see what transpires this evening. Whoever the Bucs pick, the team will look different in four or so hours than it does as Joe types this piece.

Feel free to weigh in with your thoughts and observations

    Another big play receiver pls and gaurd we are sitting pretty

  2. StAugBuc Says:

    I’ll “weigh” in. Those look to be 10 lbs. a piece! 🙂

  3. Nybucsfan Says:

    Come on we need a QB

  4. Couch Fan Says:

    Guard, Corner, Linebacker, Receiver, TE… Lots of good options. Can’t wait to see what they do.

  5. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Stay at offense. Still need a quick slot receiver and especially a couple of guards. Would not mind seeing them draft a corner either. If it’s a QB I’d only take Carr, Garoppollo, or Murray.

  6. Blastoise Says:

    Draft Su’a-Filo! If they are at all serious about the offense they will fix the line, it all revolves around it. A great line can even make giraffes look good.

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Sammy @ 7……..Oops….Damn cut & paste….

    How ’bout we go Oline or another WR?

  8. Buc Neckid Says:

    Carr is the Bucs Second round choice
    and if he is gone it will be Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA

  9. StAugBuc Says:

    @Tampabaybucfan :

    Dreams die hard, my friend! 🙂

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ St. Aug Buc

    Are those the “twin towers” we’ve been hearing about?

  11. StAugBuc Says:

    God, I hope so!

  12. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    Excited to see what happens tonight!!

  13. StAugBuc Says:

    Joe, great therapy for losing JFF: Post a version of the “Twin Towers” everyday!

    Oh, wait . . .you already do that! 🙂

  14. Bucfan#37 Says:

    StAugBuc… good take on those ginormous specimens.

  15. StAugBuc Says:

    @ Bucfan#37:
    Maybe Joe has the actual stats?

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Got Milk?

  17. StAugBuc Says:

    Tampabaybucfan Says:
    May 9th, 2014 at 6:51 pm

    Got Milk?
    Probably several gallons

  18. StAugBuc Says:

    Wow! My wife would kill me for this thread.

  19. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Wouldn’t it just be salt in the wound if the Bucs took McCarron in the 3rd, Joe? 🙂

    Not likely at all though.

  20. StAugBuc Says:

    I don’t hate Glennon, but I am sure confused about the QB thing.

  21. Joe Says:

    Joe, great therapy for losing JFF: Post a version of the “Twin Towers” everyday!

    Oh, wait . . .you already do that!


  22. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Lmao those things probably have their own gravitational pull that not even Johnny could “pull”. 😉

  23. Chef Paul Says:

    Josh Gordon facing a 1 year suspension for drugs. The curse of Johnny has already begun.

  24. StAugBuc Says:

    Factory of Sadness at full production! Pass on Watkins and a day later lose Gordon!

  25. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Doesn’t BSPN have any other song to play than “The Man” ??? That shyt is getting annoying. Time to switch to NFL Network I guess….

  26. bucrightoff Says: has the Patriots leaked evaluation of Manziel…not good

  27. Bucfan#37 Says:

    They changed the know it all panel. Dracula Kiper reappears and Conehead Dilfer offer their expertise.

  28. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    will be interesting to see if we trade back. Also hear 49er’s are calling around looking for a tall press corner

  29. MadMax Says:

    me thinks Texans go for Carr.

  30. MadMax Says:

    damnnnit! I wanted sua!

  31. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    He’s gone–Botonio Up

  32. Couch Fan Says:

    Damn there goes Filo

  33. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Jason Licht can swap picks with the Browns and win me over!

  34. lurker Says:

    whoops, there goes our guard…

  35. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Well there goes Su’a-Filo

  36. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  37. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Damn Dallas trading up

  38. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Cowboys. Sigh.

  39. getaclue Says:

    no we got DAT NECK aka Mike Glennon

  40. lurker Says:

    dallas and carr or receiver lee

  41. TheShaz Says:

    I wanted Xavier to fall to the Bucs – bummer

  42. bucrightoff Says:

    Time to trade back

  43. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Who is Dallas trading up for?

  44. Couch Fan Says:

    Cowboys jumped Cleveland, maybe for Lee?

  45. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    They might go defense.

  46. lurker Says:

    lol, silly lovlic…

    creates holes instead of filling them

  47. lurker Says:

    damn steep price dallas paid

  48. MadMax Says:

    So glad the Glazers arent like Jones.

  49. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Licht needs to swap with Browns, take Carr.

  50. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Wait is a former Buccaneer going to announce their pick?

  51. Couch Fan Says:

    Something tells me Carr will be there when we pick.

  52. Couch Fan Says:

    Brooks is announcing our pick.

  53. MadMax Says:

    me thinks Lee for cleveland next.

  54. Buc Neckid Says:

    Now only looking at Oakland in the way of taking Carr

  55. Buc Neckid Says:

    Brooks is Announcing our pick

  56. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @Couch Fan

    Could be wrong, but something tells me that Carr will be there after we pick

  57. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Cool on Brooks 🙂

    Raiders were rumored to like Carr yesterday. Their the reason I would trade up. I suppose there are 2 other QBs that could be developed with Glennon, but I REALLY, REALLY like Carr.

    Plus, if we get Carr my wife says I get….lucky later tonight…

  58. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol. You never know. I’m not discounting anything.

  59. Buc Neckid Says:

    Just waiting for Sapp to snap and go off on Schiano is worth watching NFL Network

  60. TheShaz Says:


    I dont want to see Carr or another QB – if we get Carr and passed on Johnny Football….we will never hear the end of it.


    We need O-Line and LB Depth

  61. bucrightoff Says:

    If Lee doesn’t go here I can see Atlanta taking him.

  62. jdogg99 Says:

    I think derrick brooks is announcing are pick

  63. Buc Neckid Says: has Raiders taking a Guard, Gabe Jackson

  64. Paul McCartney Says:

    Someone tell Glennon to hit the gym and eat some protein

  65. Back, from Davie Jones Locker Says:

    Carr or Kony Ealy

  66. Buc Neckid Says:


  67. LUVMYBUCS Says:


  68. MadMax Says:

    there goes Bitonio

  69. Couch Fan Says:

    Wow, the O-lineman are going. Damn.

  70. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Smh-Trade Back

  71. Buc Neckid Says:

    Run on O LINE
    Raiders should take the Guard

  72. bucrightoff Says:

    If Lee falls to the Bucs, I suspect someone will want to trade up. Bucs have been taking calls all day apparently.

  73. lurker Says:

    can’t wait for mariota to drop next year

    is lee no good?

  74. Couch Fan Says:

    Atl might go TE

  75. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Wonder why Bucs didn’t take Dallas’s deal?

  76. lurker Says:

    carr to oakland?

  77. Couch Fan Says:

    There goes Carrr

  78. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Good Pick for the Raiders

  79. kryq Says:

    Just heard Lee is falling because of injury concerns about his knee an he dropped a lot of.balls last year

  80. Buc Neckid Says:

    Trade down
    Trade down
    Trade down!!!!

  81. WalkdaPlank Says:

    And there goes Carr

  82. bucrightoff Says:

    And boom goes Bonzai.

  83. MadMax Says:

    there goes carr….now we need Gabe!…..or Lee

  84. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Okay, I out. Later!

  85. TheShaz Says:

    Yippie Carr is gone – another QB off the list

  86. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Lets take Lee if he’s there…..

  87. Nybucsfan Says:

    That sucks Carr is gone can we get the rock star bsck

  88. Nybucsfan Says:


  89. Couch Fan Says:

    We need to stay far away from anyone that has any injury issues… please stay far away from Lee.

  90. bucrightoff Says:

    I think the Falcons take him because Roddy is old and they can take a flier at this point.

  91. MadMax Says:

    nvm pass on Gabe…I thought he was a guard

  92. Buc Neckid Says:

    No to Lee, please
    Trade Down

  93. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Hopefully Atlanta don’t grab TE Troy Niklas. He would make a good addition with VJAX & EVANS.

  94. Cmurda Says:

    There goes Carr. This not having a QB thing is working to perfection and yes, Im still bitter over the Johnny F pass-up.

  95. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Kyle Van Noy, bunch of talent- still on the board.

  96. Buc Neckid Says:

    Somebody please tell the that the Raiders took Carr so they can trade him to the BUCS for Glennon

  97. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Would love to see them trade down and get Murray with their extra pick later.

  98. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Similar to the way- 49er’s just traded for Stevie Johnson –If we can, grab Evan Mathis for a 2015 pick

  99. Nybucsfan Says:

    Can get guards late so we should pick one now

  100. bucrightoff Says:

    Bucs pick in right after lol

  101. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Ok No trade down I

  102. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Geez let it play out. Glennon doubters may still get their wish w/ a QB, though I’d be surprised if it isn’t until tomorrow. Best QB’s Lovie’s had as a HC

  103. Couch Fan Says:

    I have no idea who were picking. Dont think it will be O-line now though.

  104. lurker Says:

    bucs pick is in

  105. Matthew Says:

    Would love to see Tedford with Evans/Marqise Lee. I don’t think we got the stones to do it starting with WR/WR but man that would be a hell of a wr corps with Lee in the slot. I think we draft 3 OL late rnd 5-7 and hope to hit on one or two. Take best available in round 3 and I’d be excited about the offense for the first time ever as a 20+ year season ticket holder.

  106. Buc Neckid Says:

    TE Austin Sefarian Jenkins?

  107. Buc Neckid Says:

    CBS is Five Minutes ahead of the NFL Network

  108. flmike Says:

    Jenkins – TE

  109. Couch Fan Says:

    Again with the damn commercials man!!!

  110. flmike Says:

    @Buc Neckid, Yes we are…

  111. Buc Neckid Says:

    Good Job!

  112. cap Says:

    Dammit its a Tight End

  113. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Hoping for a slight trade down with a WR needy team and pick up a 4th this year, but pass rush or O-line is certainly welcome

  114. TheShaz Says:

    NFL CHANNEL – COMING UP: buccaneers pick LIVE – – guess not

  115. flmike Says:

    @Buc Neckid
    La Canfora and his War Room contacts, they even have us in the last row of the balcony and we’re still getting the info out first.

  116. Buc Neckid Says: wil have the BUCS Third round pick in before the NFL announce the BUCS Second

  117. Couch Fan Says:

    WOOO… Welcome to tampa Austin!!!

  118. Matthew Says:

    Stress fractures and a DUI on his record! He’s a BUCCANEER man for sure. smh

  119. BucsDraft Says:

    TE…giants on the receiving corps

  120. MadMax Says:

    Awesome!!! More weapons for the QB!!!!

  121. Buc Neckid Says:

    JAX Takes WR Lee

  122. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Ok I picked the wrong TE…Jenkins need to get in shape-But he really solid

  123. WalkdaPlank Says:

    TE?? Makes no sense. We just signed Murphy feom the Giants and still have Tim Wright. Guess this means they abandoned Luke Stocker and his stone hands. And now we still need guards and a slot receiver. Awesome Licht.

  124. TheShaz Says:

    So does this mean Carl Nicks’ foot is ok?

    I was thinking Guard.

    There went Lee to Jax

  125. Couch Fan Says:

    Austin is a complete TE. He can catch and block. He will be our #1 TE. Wright will be a nice compliment.

  126. BucsDraft Says:

    L&L must have faith in our rebuilt O-line. I’m not convinced

  127. Back, from Davie Jones Locker Says:

    Wow! – nice pick

  128. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Luke Stocker doesn’t like the pick

  129. MadMax Says:

    3rd will be Bryant (hopefully)

  130. BucsDraft Says:

    Redzone should be easier now.

  131. Cmurda Says:

    Weird. Im hating our draft which likely means they are excellent picks.

  132. The Real Drew Says:

    There was no guard there that fit the value of the pick. Really want to reach on a second rounder??

  133. Buc Neckid Says:

    Trai Turner OG LSU
    Martavius Bryant WR Clemson
    in third
    or BOTH
    if we trade Glennon

  134. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Say buh bye to Stocker and Crabtree, hello to empty, one back, and two TE sets. Interesting.

  135. Buc1987 Says:

    Wright might slide to slot now. Like the pick a lot. Now they BETTER address that o-line.

    Go Bucs!

  136. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh yeah another 6’5 target. McCown is going to be a happy camper. If he can stay on his feet long enough.

  137. Buc Neckid Says:

    Seriously Guys…
    Head over to
    for current draft status
    TV is really dropping the ball from last night’s Great Showing

  138. Bucs Draft Says:

    @87 I hear you on that. Giants on the receiving corps is a beautiful thing. However, if he is getting sacked it isn’t going matter. I thought it was an interesting stat yesterday they threw up about Russel Wilson being the most hurried QB in the NFL last season.

  139. Buc Neckid Says:

    BIG Receiving and TE corp this year
    Need a “Speed in Space Guy” now

  140. Buc Neckid Says:

    ^ or was that Smoke too

  141. spanishbuc Says:

    Jackson, Evans, Wright, and now Jenkins. we are going to have the tallest pass catchers in the NFL. The redzone is going to a strength for this team. I just hope we can make it to the redzone.

  142. Buc Neckid Says:

    Starting to think that Lovie is a Big Fat Liar
    or a Good Poker Player

  143. Buc1987 Says:

    Buc Neckid…if they draft QB…then he for sure is a liar.

  144. Couch Fan Says:

    Damn there goes Mathews

  145. Buc Neckid Says:

    Say goodbye to Stocker and Crabtree

  146. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Okay…I’ve taken a few minutes to calm down a little.

    I’m now telling myself that they are trying to go BPA at all positions of need in each round.

    I can’t fault them for that…if that’s what they were doing. If this TE is anything like Graham, it’s another good pick.

    I still say they need a quarterback though.

    I don’t really care what else they do. I think the two picks are good ones, just not what I wanted.

  147. Couch Fan Says:

    Welcome back Bonzai.

  148. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Tim Wright had a great year, but, you have to wonder if Tedford is going to use one of the burners in the slot.

    Go Bucs!

  149. Buc Neckid Says:

    Third Down and Red Zone Offense is going to be Much Improved
    Imagine them Going
    WR Jackson
    WR Evans
    TE Wright
    TE Jenkins
    RB Martin

  150. Joe Says:

    Third Down and Red Zone Offense is going to be Much Improved


  151. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bucs will lead the League in Goal Post Dunking Penalties this year

  152. Will Says:

    How many TE’s would a team typically carry? ASJ, Wright, Myers, Stocker, Crabtree….

  153. unbelievable Says:

    stocker and crab tree are goners unless they can really contribute on special teams, which is doubtful given their injury histories

  154. Buc Neckid Says:

    Three to four TE’s

  155. Buc Neckid Says:

    ^ probably only 3 TE’s

  156. DavidM Says:

    Seriously if were in the red zone how we not score w this hoops of giants team?

  157. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Will, keep in mind its the off season. They can have 80 guys on the roster right now (or soon).

  158. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Changing from “speed in space” to


  159. Buc1987 Says:

    Licht gets an A- so far in my house. Only because I wanted them to go o-line with that pick, but theis TE looks special. I’m excited again everyone.

  160. CLW JB Says:

    Stocker, bu bye! Carrying 4 TE and maybe Maneri sticks as a T /TE swing for short yardage. This offense is quickly becoming quite formidable – 3 deep at RB, 3 deep at TE, twin towers on the outside and Demps/Murphy that are 4.3 range slot guys – a couple o line here or in post draft FA…..nice moves all around

  161. Buc Neckid Says:

    Looking at Trai Turner, OG, LSU in Third

  162. Buc Neckid Says:

    Jeremy Cain (Who???) is our Long Snapper
    Maybe the fourth TE can Long Snap like Dave Moore did so well for so many years

  163. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Is it true the TE has a criminal record?

  164. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @Buccaneer Bonzai

    DUI conviction based on a single-car accident on March 9, 2013 in which Seferian-Jenkins reportedly registered a 0.18 blood-alcohol content rating, more than twice Washington’s .08 legal limit.

    Displayed humility and accountability by serving one-day sentence in jail and speaking to youth (along with the arresting officer, and a mother of a high school-aged student killed in a DUI-related accident) about the dangers of alcohol after pleading guilty to a DUI rather than pleading out and taking a lesser sentence.

  165. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    MadMax Says
    “nvm pass on Gabe…I thought he was a guard”

    If you mean Gabe Jackson he is a guard, or projected to be. He’s also a good choice.

  166. Eric Says:

    No biggie lots of folks have had a dui.

    Got a good vibe for this pick.

  167. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    LUVMYBUCS, since it happened in college, that would not be something Goodell could suspend him for, right?

  168. lurker Says:

    nice that dui is no biggie in this day and age

  169. Buc1987 Says:

    Just go O-line the rest of the way Licht. I think Lovie might be thinking as far as defense is. Hey I got this shyte right now. This team needs O. It’s my D now and it’s set. Well and Frazier’s too I guess, but whatever.

  170. Buc1987 Says:

    And he like’s tall. “I Love Mike Glennon”- Lovie Smith

  171. Buc Neckid Says:

    Third Down and Red Zone Offense
    Imagine them Going
    WR Jackson
    WR Evans
    TE Wright
    TE Jenkins
    RB Martin
    QB Big Bird Napoleon Dyna-Mike Glennon

  172. Buc Neckid Says:

    DUI is a BIG Deal
    and it seems that Jenkins faced it remorsefully
    But it Does not excuse the mistake though

  173. BuckPuck Says:

    I love the pick. Maybe we have Wright play slot. Gabe Jackson on the board still. He is a mauler at guard.

  174. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    If Glennon could add some speed…he could throw a lob and perhaps catch it himself… more tower!!!

  175. Buc Neckid Says:

    Agree Gabe Jackson > Trai Turner
    Hope he lasts until the BUCS Third Round Pick

  176. Couch Fan Says:

    Garoppolo to Pats… Did not see that coming.

  177. Buc Neckid Says:

    So Much for Glennon to Pats

  178. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    That leaves only one QB worth taking…if he falls to round 5.

  179. Buc1987 Says:

    No kidding Couch. That’ll get you fans that want a QB a little more worried. Bilichick wow WTH is going on there though? He likes the kid and the Bucs passed on him.

    “I Love Mike Glennon” – Lovie Smith

  180. Cmurda Says:

    Jimmy G off the board.

  181. Buc Neckid Says:

    Poker player Lovie Smith says
    “I Love Mike Glennon (as a Back Up)”

  182. LUVMYBUCS Says:


  183. Will Says:

    Assuming we go Guard at 69 who does everyone like? Yankey from Stanford for me.

  184. Buc Neckid Says:

    Bucs on the Clock

  185. Buc1987 Says:

    “The Bucs will draft no QB in this draft”- Buc1987

    Oh and Bonzai Lovie drafted a WR in the first round.

    Do you like the pick?

  186. unbelievable Says:

    Somehow the pats always f*ck the BUcs

  187. lurker Says:

    lol…noone want glennon…

    so jimmy g is better than glennon according to belicheat.

  188. Couch Fan Says:

    Lovie wants Glennon. That’s all that matters.

  189. Buc Neckid Says:

    Pick is in
    Who is it?

  190. Buc1987 Says:

    Damn Murray can pull too Joe.

  191. kevin Says:

    Im thinking aaron murray right here in the third round. At least that is what I thought before the draft started yesterday. Now I am thinking OL or Db or Dl. If they dont take a qb here they wont take one at all.probably Ol

  192. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    I already ate crow on the WR thing.

    As far as QB, that will hurt the Bucs in the long run…this season. Badly.

  193. Couch Fan Says:

    A RB? Wow… ok then.

  194. Buc Neckid Says:

    Charles Sims RB????

  195. Buc1987 Says:

    Bonzai…there in rebuild mode as far as I’m concerned. It’s okay man. Now Go O-line damn it!


  196. lurker Says:


    at least it is offense…my fallback saying.

  197. Buc1987 Says:

    wow wtf

  198. kevin Says:

    Get ready for explosive offense. When was the last time Lovie smith drafted three offensive players with his first three picks???

  199. BucsDraft Says:

    I’m lost now…lol

  200. unbelievable Says:

    @Couch, seriously. That one really surprised me. Sims is a really good player, but we have WAY BIGGER NEEDS. O-line anyone?

  201. Couch Fan Says:

    What an odd pick. Rainey or James must be gone now.

  202. Buc Neckid Says:

    Doug Martin = 2015 Trade Bait???

  203. Nybucsfan Says:

    Is this a f ing joke

  204. bucinnc Says:

    what the……..

  205. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wow. The position we LEAST needed to fill.

    THAT was a bonehead pick, especially with Gabe Jackson available.

    This one borders on idiotic.

  206. Nybucsfan Says:

    This gm is garbage

  207. Buc1987 Says:

    Licht gets downgraded to a B for me now or whoever is pulling the strings.

  208. lurker Says:

    lovie is stuck with glennon

  209. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Unless he can return kicks.

  210. nate Says:

    What a waste of a pick we let go of revis for a 3rd round running back wtf?

  211. Buc1987 Says:


  212. JKTampa Says:


  213. Josh P Says:

    Little confused on this pick. Without a 4th round pick you can forget them drafting a QB.

  214. lurker Says:

    i don’t think dougie is that great of a back…injury conern still?

  215. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    I’ve posted about this kid plenty of times. You have to watch this kid in space

  216. Buc1987 Says:

    ahhh the hell.

  217. Nybucsfan Says:

    I can’t wait for this season looks like we are way better what a joke

  218. Couch Fan Says:

    Let’s not over react here. We have no idea what Licht/Lovie are thinking. I have no clue who this guy is. Is he any good?

  219. Matt B Says:

    How is this a good pick when there is a sorry azz offensive line not opening any holes for the running game? Doug Martin is supposed to be a 3-down back. This says a lot about what they think of him.

  220. lurker Says:

    Kevin Seifert

    But pretty clear the Sando Theory is in play for the Bucs. Lovie is a great defensive coach and he inherited a pretty good group. They’re all about making the offense right for Jeff Tedford in this draft.

  221. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    I g guarantee All of you that are talking S#it about this kid will be eating crow

  222. Buc1987 Says:

    “Mike Glennon is the future”- Lovie Smith

  223. kryq Says:

    wow lost for words.. we have like 5 rbs.

  224. BuckPuck Says:

    We have 5 rbs now… Martin, Rainey, Demps, James and now Sims. I don’t get it.

  225. Denny Gay Says:

    another rb…. What the Hell

  226. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Probably will be a slot reciever…..but I don’t think we needed him…will be interesting to hear why we selected him…..How many RBs do we have?

  227. Cmurda Says:

    What in the hell are we doing?

  228. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Lovie is out of his MIND. No wonder he got kicked out of Chicago for offense.. TE was not a need, RB is no where NEAR a need. Im trying to find a logically reason why they would go RB when they have NO GUARDS TO BLOCK FOR HIM and I just can’t. I wanna say “L&L know what they are doing” but they are making it hard to trust them.

  229. Back, from Davie Jones Locker Says:

    Uh . . . Whaaa?
    A RB? If there is one thing we have- it’s RBs.

    Guard? Another Wr? That makes sense

    Rb? Did Lovie and Jason forget they changed teams?

  231. Jerry Says:

    Folks, they are not going to draft a QB in this draft! McCown is the starter and Glennon is the future. Lovie declared it yesterday. What is it you don’t understand?

  232. WalkdaPlank Says:

    *logical reason wth?

  233. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We may have a trade offer on the table for Rainey, Martin or James….

  234. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We may have a trade offer on the table for Rainey, Martin or James….

  235. zam Says:

    one of the worst drafts I’ve seen the Bucs do… awful.

    Drafted a #2 WR with the 7th pick of the draft
    Drafted a tight end, a position they didn’t need to shore up (they now have 7 on the roster)
    Drafted a running back, the one position on offense that didn’t need fixing

    But still don’t have a quarterback or an offensive line.

    Also, there’s no reason they couldn’t have traded the 7th to Cleveland if they had been on the ball. They blew that opportunity big time. (For all his faults, I guarantee the Dominator would have made that happen.)

    Yikes. I give them a D for dreadful.

  236. lurker Says:

    i suppose it is easier to build the line in free agency. i wonder what they are going to do with these players.

  237. Buc1987 Says:

    Maybe they will pick up some gaurds in free agency?

  238. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Now a lot of their moves are looking questionable smdh

  239. Buc Neckid Says:

    Sims = Best Pass Catching RB in the Draft
    Two of these will have to go
    Martin, Rainey, James, Smith or Demps
    And is Lonnie Pryor the only FB?

  240. rayjay1122 Says:

    I thought RB wasn’t much of a need. Very confused with that pick. I guess L&L don’t think that much of Martin or James. I don’t know much about Sims so I can’t judge him as a player but RB in the 3rd. …really?

  241. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Demps is total toast.

    I think this is the Bucs speed in space guy. 6′ 4.48 speed. Very good hands.

    It would not surprise me if he is converted to WR or used for kick returns.

  242. Jerry Says:

    This is a Tedford pick. Best receiving RB in the draft and he’s fast. Tailored to what Tedford wants to do.

  243. kevin Says:

    Rainey and or smith will be gone. Im hopin rainey didnt see anything in him. Just a camp body

  244. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Great Draft So Far-They wanna put points on the board gentlemen

  245. JKTampa Says:

    LUVMYBUCS, thanks for the link. Sims looks more like a receiver than a RB. I can see why they picked him.

  246. Macabee Says:


    Do you remember my post about Sims? Lovie wants another Matt Forte and Tedford wants another Jahvid Best!

    Everybody remember what Joe said about Doug Martin? Look it up!

    Thank you, Macabee. –Joe

  247. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Stop saying this affects Martin. It doesn’t. Smith and Demps. Maybe Rainey. Not Martin.

  248. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Yep, He’s a clone of Forte

  249. Buc1987 Says:

    Well thanks for that LUV. Now I see what they just did. They drafted their slot WR. This dude is quick and he can catch. He flies after the catch as well.

  250. Buc1987 Says:

    I only had to watch about 45 secs of that video and figured it out LUV. Good stuff!

  251. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    I wonder if we’ll also look at his teammate DE Will Clarke. Hard for me to keep track-Got a few folks over, and I’m manning the grill.

  252. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    No need to thank me. Not like I pointed out the WR angle. Sheesh.

  253. Me First Says:

    Our Shane vereen

  254. Buc1987 Says:

    I think they are going to line this guy up at all different positions.

  255. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Nah, bro his a beastly running back

  256. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Speed in space baby

  257. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Nah, bro he’s a beastly running back

  258. lurker Says:

    just had the press conference…

    do the giants want martin still?

  259. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL Bonzai I missed you’re comments….I was watching the video.

  260. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    That’s it for us tonight barring a trade, right?

  261. Couch Fan Says:

    There is your YAC guy that you are so craving for Joe. Another weapon in the passing game. Loving this draft.

  262. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Still no guards. For Lovie’s sake Carl Nicks better be ready to go. Unless we trade back into the 3rd or 4th we are looking at subpar 5th+ round OG’s and all the good ones are gone from FA. That 2015 6th rounder for Zuttah is startin to look REAL GOOD L&L.

  263. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Going back to work on my book. See ya’ll at noon.

  264. lurker Says:

    need oline and qb, but i’m glad it is all offense.

  265. Buc Neckid Says:

    Somehow overnight i believe we will pick up a fourth round pick for an OG

  266. lurker Says:

    no need to so early. bucs don’t have a 4th rounder.

  267. delson Says:

    Martin for freeman!! Giants trade

  268. Nybucsfan Says:

    Looks like they will be buying up a lot of unsold tickets I hope the make this dumb gm buy them. They shouldn’t waist there money on all the stadium upgrades

  269. lurker Says:

    cool. then we’ll finally get our franchise qb!

  270. rayjay1122 Says:

    Loading up on weapons for the QB’s but if our OL doesn’t get some help soon it may all be for not. If and when we have the first injury on the line we will be screwed. I see average at best starters and no depth.

  271. delson Says:

    There is still free agency everybody need to chill

  272. Paul McCartney Says:

    Rainey and James did some good things last year; why would waste a pick on a position that’s not a pressing need?

  273. Orlandobucsfan Says:

    Finally a good article on the bucs–get-ready-for-the-bucs-to-surprise-000845218.html?hl=1

  274. Buxfan Says:

    Bobby Rainey is not an NFL player. Not all that good. Jeff Demps could be a slot receiver.

  275. BucsDraft Says:

    Martin, Sims, Rainey…rest are trade bait or cut

  276. kryq Says:

    I think its Martin, James, Sims, Demps. Leaving out Rainey an Smith

  277. Buc the Haters Says:

    ‘Best pass catching RB in the draft.’ … Perfect. He looks like he could be VERY effective in the slot & backfield… Kind of a Percy Harvin-type role… This kid can take it to the HOUSE. Great finishing speed.

  278. lightningbuc Says:

    Just checking in to see where Glennon has been traded to and to see who has been drafted as the “franchise QB”.

  279. lurker Says:

    let me get in a wheelchair and i can be the franchise qb! i would have more escapability and mobility than geoffrey gluepad glennon.
