Another Dunkaneer?

April 5th, 2016


Who could forget when Bucs general manager Jason Licht smiled and coined the phrase “Dunkaneers” during the 2014 NFL Draft.

Tampa Bay had just drafted Mike Evans and manbeast tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins to team with Vincent Jackson. It was the union of three giant target, all former accomplished basketball players.

Josh McCown was going to kick some ass!

The Dunkaneers have yet to scare the NFL, but Licht might remain enamored by big receivers.

The Bucs, obviously, are hurting for receiving depth and there’s a another draft in 23 short days.

That brings Joe to another basketball player, a projected sixth-round pick from the SEC. He’s 6-5 receiver De’Runnya Wilson out of Mississippi State.

Wilson is an interesting prospect. You can’t teach height and length, but Wilson also was the slowest receiver at the NFL Scouting Combine, running a 4.85-second, 40-yard dash. Still, those are goofy track numbers. He had 10 touchdowns last year, and is considered a highly athletic prospect still learning the game after a late start.

Joe will let lovely Amanda Borges take it from here, via the video below. Joe would not be shocked if the Bucs gambled on a receiver or two on Day 3 of the draft — unless Roddy White is signed before then.

    De’Runnya, rite ouuta Tampa if ya don’t get rid of the KY hands #13, Wilson.

  2. Bee Says:

    Ehhh….we need a receiver with speed and hands! Not another tall, slow receiver.

  3. 813bucboi Says:

    man im a little torn with this one…i watched him vs teams like lsu, bama and ole miss and the kid is very competative and catches the ball very well…he also ran some pretty nice routes that gained him seperation…obvisously, his speed is a major red flag and cb’s were all stuck to his hip while covering him…GO BUCS!!!

  4. DallasBuc Says:

    Can he catch the damn ball? If so, make him our #1 receiver to start on day one.
    Dunkaneers??? One of the dumber things produced from the tragic Lovie & lapdog experiment.

  5. 813bucboi Says:

    @dallas…LOLLOL…yeah he can catch and run decent routes but his speed is a concern…GO BUCS!!!

  6. DB55 Says:

    I’m assuming Mike Thomas WR Southern Miss is too expensive for the Bucs? The kid looks pretty good.

    I love how Jason Licht coined to phrase and yet you still manage to blame Lovie. Well done.

    UDFA WR Watch 2016
    D’haquille Williams WR Auburn 6-2 | 229
    Alonzo Russell WR Toledo 6-4 | 206

    Note: Our Personnel Dept. has a history with Toledo Wide Receivers
    Eric Page (2013)
    Bernard Reedy (2016)

  9. James Says:

    He didn’t blame Lovie, he blamed the experiment of allowing Lovie to have a lap dog.

  10. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    De’Runnya Wilson might be okay in the 6th round. I hate to play devil’s advocate (not really), but Speed and hands are only important for 1-2 WRs of 6. We actually need a dependable slot WR to play an Ike Hilliard role.

    De’Runnya Wilson may just be that guy.

    We’re talking about the 6th round here…nothing ventured, nothing gained.

  11. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Who is Bernard Reedy?

  12. Idontwannahearitanymore Says:

    Toooo-oooo-oooo-oooo Slooooooowww!

  13. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    #86 Reedy, Bernard WR/K 5-9 | 175 | 24 (Toledo)

    We plucked him away Atlanta this offseason.
    Just a practice squad guy trying to make a squad.

  14. macabee Says:

    Wilson comes with character red flags, as he was arrested March 13, 2015 on suspicion of marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia. That doesn’t bother me, but the Bucs used to like choir boys and team captains. Don’t know about the new crew.

    Wilson is a 6-7 round pick or possibly UDFA. If the Bucs have interest, might have fellow Bulldog Johnthan recruit him for possible UDFA spot. FWIW, the Bucs worked out 6-3 WR Cody Core/Ole Miss last week.

  15. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    I like Core – Drops to many balls though

  16. macabee Says:


    I have no preferences in this draft. Whatever the Bucs do! I’m going to sit back and watch this one. Good luck with your picks!

  17. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Me too!

  18. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Same here buddy – Gotta respect how Licht leaves no stone unturned. He really pride himself on small school prospects. Ole school approach to scouting#respect

  19. OSUbucIdr Says:

    Let’s draft him and sign Greg Hardy. Then we’d have the best NFL basketball team.

    Carload says click bait.

    “Dunkaneers??? One of the dumber things produced from the tragic Lovie & lapdog experiment.”

    Is that the same tragic experiment that produced Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, Kwon Alexander, Ali Marpet, Donovan Smith and Charles Sims in two drafts?

    Sign me up for that experiment please.

  22. Bucsfanman Says:

    Does he have “game” speed? That, and hands?
    At this point anything is possible as far as draft-wise. Even with all the acquisitions, there is room for improvement.

  23. Espo Says:

    40 speed has nothing to do with jump balls in the end zone.

  24. Johnny Says:

    i still want Anquan Boldin

  25. DallasBuc Says:

    Tom S.- it was incompetent Lovie Smith & his lapdog GM experience that produced Trash McCown, Anthony Collins, Michael Johnson and, of course 2-14. From that achievement in professional ineptitude you get a Jameis Winston with the first overall pick. There is a reason why that experiment is over and with Mike Clayton Evans batting down passes thrown right to him, ASJ making a living on the sidelines and VJax battling Father Time it’s clear that Dunkaneers is the stupidest most premature and arrogant thing to fall out of Licht’s piehole since “…we won’t ask our fans to be patient…” en route to 2-14.
    Yeah, gotta love that Lovie & lapdog experiment!!

  26. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Blah blah blah to the last poster. Smell like cowboy meat round here all of sudden. Keep talkin that noise ima sick Bonzai on yo a$$.

  27. DallasBuc Says:

    NosBos- and you are ever saying anything of any substance? Just a lot of babble that indicates strongly you possess a sore grasp of the English language. Hilarious all you can run with these days is some cheap cowboys fan reference because of my handle. You’re holding on too tight man. Let incompetent Lovie Smith go.

  28. William Walls Says:

    @DallasBuc: You’re a real ‘glass all-empty’ kinda guy, aren’t ya?

  29. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Well to answer you no I’m never saying anything. I don’t have time for all the research,I work a full time gig. And excuse me for my lingo I don’t change for anyone homie. If it offends you just scroll past dude. I come here to be updated by people many of which I’m sure are more educated and smarter than myself homie. But one is for certain I’m long way from dumbest on this site as well. I find it funny you suggest I let that guy go when there is literally not a week that gose by without you referencing his name. Ain’t that b@$!. Thank you to all poster’s who provide me substance LUV,Bonzai,LWD,Pickgrin,Tmax,St.Pete,SB to mention a few. There are many many more bad boys on. Unlike the fruitless hate filled BS you drop everyday homie.

  30. DallasBuc Says:

    No William Wallace, I just don’t necessarily have to buy into the hype of every coach and player that ever gets associated with this team.

  31. gotbbucs Says:

    Corey Coleman….that is all.

  32. DallasBuc Says:

    NosBos- I never suggested your lingo as you call it was at all offensive. In fact, the only one here that was crying holy race offense to things was you all last season when your LovableLovie was getting his arse beat up and down the football field. I bring up incompetent Lovie Smith because he was very bad for my favorite football team which is relevant to this site. If that offends you feel free to scroll on by. What’s funny is how you and Bonzai never skip an opportunity to put Dallas in your mouth. Guess it’s a lifestyle choice, not that there is anything wrong with that!!
    Trust me, the sooner we can get to real football with some real winning the sooner I can forget what he did in his short destructive time here.

  33. James Walker Says:

    Was Ms. Gorgeous talking about football….I missed it looking at her.

  34. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    OMG,I love the Buccs but my life isn’t devastated by they’re short comings. If yours is I suggest counseling my dude. It ain’t hardly that serious.

  35. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    “Lifestyle choice” its funny that comes to your mind considering you say loveable lovie everyday. I 😉 got you homie.

  36. DallasBuc Says:

    Ummm…at what point did I suggest my life was “devastated by their short comings”??? What are you talking about? You do realize that other people can also read this and see what I said and clearly did not, right?
    Stop making stuff up and debate things I actually say.

  37. DallasBuc Says:

    “LovableLovie” is called a nickname and is meant to ridicule the casual fan like yourself that only sees what a nice sweet upstanding father-figure swell guy Lovie Smith appears to be and refuses to acknowledge his abject incompetence as the Buccaneers head coach. Not a lifestyle choice reference at all but it’s good to see you trying to be funny.

  38. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Nothing you say is truly worth debating. You talk spit about the team which stimulates me talking spit to you. Its as simple as they say… Dude.

  39. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    And that spit you just spewed about lovie is dumb when I’ve publically stated he sucked and needed to go on more than one occasion. What the hell are you talking bout???

  40. MonsGM Says:

    Josh Doctson please please please. He is going to be an elite number one.

  41. cmurda Says:

    I like our chances for a strong draft with Licht. Can’t wait to enjoy the show in a few weeks.

  42. Poju Says:

    People always seem to forget how slow Alshon ran his 40. Nobody seems to care now.
