Tyrus Thompson On Day 2?

February 12th, 2015

Man, the Bucs need to land a young stud offensive lineman. The new Tampa Bay rookie quarterback (hopefully) should have quality O-line pieces to grow alongside.

So who might the Bucs eye on Day 2 of the NFL Draft?

Longtime scout Chris Landry, now working for his own LandryFootball.com, likes the two big tackles from Oklahoma, Tyrus Thompson and Daryl Williams. He even Twittered Joe that yesterday, claiming they were second-round material.

Joe’s intrigued by Thompson, a monster at 6-5, 335 pounds. He was the left-tackle anchor on a standout Sooners line.

Joe also suspects Lovie Smith will like Thompson coming from a military family, growing up in Lovie’s beloved Texas, and developing over five years at Oklahoma.

Thompson has the size and apparent strength to be versatile in the NFL. No, he’s not considered first-round material, but the guy is an immense talent, and you can’t teach sheer size and his good feet.

The NFL Scouting Combine is just an underwear track meet, but Joe’s anxious to see how the big guy moves. He definitely be a guy the Bucs pounce on if he’s there with their first pick of Round 3.

    if we traded down we could get both Joe…along with many other options

  2. Bucoholic Says:

    Day 2 if available needs to be:
    Cameron Erving OT/OG/OC from FSU plays all line positions and or Ali Marpet OT/OG from Hobart in rounds 3 or 4! Later in the draft you can also find Kyle Costigan OG from Wisconsin and Dallas Lewallen OG/C also from Wisconsin in rounds 6-FA. You can also find another Oklahoma boy in Adam Shead OG in round 5-6.

    It is so REFRESHING discussing the remainder of the Bucs draft slots !!

  4. Kalind Says:

    Exactly bucaholic. Erving. All day. Continuity w Jameis, five position player.. All you need to know.

    Trade with the Browns for both firsts, their second, their first next yr and Alex Mack. Take Donte Fowler Jr in and Peat or Scherff in the First then Perryman in the second. HEY a man can Dream can’t he.

  6. Lion Says:

    Interesting, but we should be able to get a player with a first round grade with our second round pick considering it’s the 34th pick in the draft. If I’m not mistaken Erving has a first-round grade and he should be available. If we draft Winston and land Erving that would be a massive upgrade to the offense.

  7. Lev in Philly Says:

    We have to take an MLB with our 2nd round pick. More important than a guard. It is the QB of our defense.

  8. Jacko101 Says:

    Knuckle the Browns would never trade for that silly

  9. Bucs55 Says:

    Perryman has to be the pick in round 2 if hes there and we dont resign Foster this kid is going be great the Next levonta David but in the Middle His Instincts are Incredible For a middle Back and Fills the Gap Constantly plus he has Enought Speed to Play Coverage In the Tampa 2

  10. MadMax Says:

    LOL! Just know that my hated in state rivalry team, Clemson, ripped them in that bowl game dec. 29, (40 to 6). Sooners finished with an 8-5 record…eh. Not saying he couldnt develop, but to spend a 2nd is VERY risky.

    Cam Erving all day even if we have to move up…..especially if we draft Winston!

  11. Celly Says:

    The only think i can say with almost 100% certainty is that the Bucs will find some way to package their 2nd round pick and move up to the bottom of the 1st round and take someone they liked that managed to start falling.

    Why wait until the 2nd when you can throw in a 7th round pick and get him on a 5 year contract instead?

  12. Atlanta Buc Says:

    Lev in Philly and Buc55 totally agree, first we take the quarterback of the offense, then at 2 we take the quarterback of the defense! I love Kendricks, but he will probably be gone, so Perryman is the pick at #2!

  13. Mr. Patrick Says:

    If the Bucs are going to have a shiny new toy at QB they need to do everything they can to protect him and give him the very best chance to be successful. I’m not in the camp of folks that think Bucs only need 2 new starters on the O-Line. Go get some new dominators and not only guys that are average or adequate. It all really does start up front

  14. Connor Says:

    Prime focus needs to be our offensive line. We have to address that unit hard.

  15. MadMax Says:

    And just so you Kendricks supporters know, heck of a tackler, great instincts, but horrible at pass defense. MLB in tampa 2 needs to be great at pass defense as well. Not saying he couldnt learn grow into it though.

  16. Bucs55 Says:

    Denzel Perryman … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfSa4V15324

    This Kid Is gonna Be a Star

  17. Tom Edrington Says:

    I noticed in the picture with this post that the guy isn’t blocking anyone…..and that would make him a perfect Tampa Bay lineman!

  18. Brandon Says:

    No, he’s not 1st round material… but there will be a guy that is 1st round material that slides into round 2…the Bucs draft #34 overall…there will be a draft day slider that could fall into their laps rather than taking a solid 2nd rounder (45-60) at what is basically a late first round draft position.

    @ Joe

    “The new Tampa Bay rookie quarterback (hopefully) should have quality O-line pieces to grow alongside.”

    You haven’t heard Joe? Glennon is the future!!! This is a bad fallacy of your writing when you make these remarks

  20. HolyBuc Says:

    I like the other OU OT Daryl Williams he may be there in the 3rd round.

  21. knuckledragger Says:

    WHAT IF we could get Peat And Fowler Jr. in the First round, And get Perryman at 34? Courtesy of the Browns with their second this yr, first next yr and Alex Mack as the kicker.!

  22. Pickgrin Says:

    Either Cam Erving or Perryman with the #34 pick. Hopefully 1 of those 2 will be there.

  23. Jerid421 Says:

    TRADE DOWN with CLEVELAND! The number one overall then becomes a 2015 #12, #19 (first round), #43 (second round) and a 2016 First Rounder. Couple that with that fact that we already have the #34 (basically a first round). That gives us the #12, #19, #34, and #43 picks! And with (2) 5th round picks, we could move any of those picks up a few spots. This team has way too many glaring holes. A young, unproven college superstar quarterback isn’t going to help us at all. Be smart and trade down!!!!
