One Bucs Chat Means Nothing

Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht shared a nugget with Joe at the NFL Scouting Combine that might surprise many fans.

Licht explained that his staff has a goal at the Combine to chat with every single college player attending. Between, scouts, personnel executives and coaches (running backs coach Tim Spencer and offensive line coach George Warhop were on Joe’s flight to Indianapolis), the Bucs get the job done.

Draft lovers are always intrigued when learning a team meets with a player. But in the case of the Bucs, that really means nothing.

Of course, the Bucs usually meet players they’re very interested in multiple times. That was the case with a certain Pac-12 running back.

Remember last year at the combine, when Donovan Smith told Joe the Bucs spoke with him “many times?”

    The main thing I remember about last year’s draft was the video of lovie about to fall asleep during Combine workouts that was all over the internet!!!!!

    Realist: that’s because combine workouts are boring as hell. You would have to pay me to watch that hot garbage. I’d rather watch all of last years games all over again.

    Thats a big reason the Bucs have hit on so many picks. Licht leaves no stone unturned. Him and his scout due their due dilligence and then some. Im sure Dominick and Allen worked hard, but I dont recall reading about them taking it so far like Licht has.

    Koetter produced more offense in his first year with three rookie starters, than Gruden did in seven. Coaching and scheme made the difference. The same changes for the defense will be the difference in 2016. Player upgrades will be made as well, but the biggest impact will be in the coaching. A top 5 offense and a top 15 defense will be a contender. The Bucs will be there IMO.
