Koetter, Licht Talk Drafting A Kicker

Licht explains move for a kicker.

Licht explains move for a kicker.

It seems half of Bucs fandom is outraged Tampa Bay traded back up into the second round to draft Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo.

There is method to the madness, the Bucs’ braintrust explained tonight.

First, Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht said Aguayo was their top-rated kicker. When Joe asked, as the rumors floating around on Twitter suggested, if Licht sniffed out another team about to pull the trigger on drafting Aguayo, Licht didn’t deny it.

“There is a reason,” Licht said of his unorthodox move.

Koetter stated Aguayo’s strong leg and accuracy were key elements. With one-point conversions now the equivalent of a 33-yard field goal attempt, a long, accurate leg is more important than ever.

“It’s the same kick,” Aguayo said. “You hit the ball the same way.”

Also, Koetter noted the new kickoff rule puts the ball at the opponent’s 25 on a touchback but it likely will be changed. Thus, the Bucs were looking at Aguayo’s booming leg on kickoffs as a future need.

Koetter said Aguayo consistently belted his kickoffs out of the end zone at Florida State and added he knows the Bucs will take a large amount of flak from fans for trading up to draft a kicker in the second round.

As Licht said to open his press conference, “I got a kick out of that last pick.”

    Amen Joe. Keep preaching

  2. unbelievable Says:

    Who’s got big balls?

    Licht’s got big balls!

    Licht’s got the biggest, balls of them all

  3. Bird Says:

    It’s funny. Licht will draft a full back in 5th or 6th round cause we don’t have one on roster and that is when the top guys go for this position. He will be able to say he had back to back years of drafting 4 starters.

  4. BigMacAttack Says:

    Other than the qbs at 1 & 2, this may be the best value pick in the draft. Smart move by Licht.

  5. Couch Fan Says:

    What? No. There cant be a reason. Havent you heard the whiney buc fans on JBF swear nobody wanted him in the 2nd? It has to be true, im sure their inside sources are better than Lichts.

  6. DaRealistBucFan Says:

    You better hope you’re right. We will find out soon enough when we play the Saints and have to face Both Rankins and Bell 2 players we should’ve drafted. If we lose to the Saints twice this year Licht should he fired immediately. Just remember this stat. 5-10 from beyond 40 yards. That’s what you just drafted and gave up out 3rd and 4th for.

  7. unbelievable Says:

    that’s a good point Bird.

  8. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Just have to get the ball to 45 Jameis..that gives us sooo many options.

  9. BigMacAttack Says:

    And kickers don’t get hurt if they stay of the basketball court.

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    DaRealist….who’s this “we” Jags fan?

  11. Mike Says:

    Gave up are 4th (free one at that)……getting tired of correcting u cry babies.

  12. DaRealistBucFan Says:

    @ couchfan

    Yea cause twitter is such an accurate source. It was probably someone in the Saints organization that sent the tweet cause they new Lights dumbass would gall for the hokey doke. Now the Saints Have bell and we are getting lauged at. Good job

  13. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    I love this pick..

  14. R.O. Says:

    Yeah cause if we lose to NO it’s because of Vonn Bell.. Moron!!

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    I like the pick – assuming he really is a generational talent. If he’s on the team for the next 15 years well then it’s a heck of a pick.

  16. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    I like how even licht is laughing…just like people who said picking jameis was a terrible decision…

  17. Couch Fan Says:

    Your crystal ball is working overtime tonight DaWhineyBucFan. Good news is, if it gets over heated you can go right to your local 7-11 and get a new one on the cheap!!

  18. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    If you think we had a good kicker before and didn’t fill a huge need? Then you’re watching the wrong football, your sport is played on a pitch with a round ball. For the rest of you, thank you for not being blind to the fact that we got the best player at his position and he’s hopefully gonna play as a Buc for years to come, pretty cool

  19. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    Lol crystal ball…got em!

  20. Rswag Says:

    Saw his accuracy dip in 2015. Made just 5-of-9 field goals from 41 yards and beyond. Will occasionally lose track of a kickoff and knock it out of bounds. Only attempted six kicks of 50-plus yards during his career. While quality of kickoffs have improved, still doesn’t have a booming kickoff leg.

    This is your strong leg accurate kicker again.

  21. Supersam Says:

    I love this pick. Tell me this who will score more points at the end of they’re career, second round pick Austin Seferian- Jenkins or second round pick Roberto Aguayo?? Exactly. So shut up. Good pick Licht.

  22. Rswag Says:

    Hey tough guy with the fake swear word in your call name, thanks for pointing out your security in this kicker by mentioning as you put it, “hopefully gonna play as a buc for years to come”. You had so many needs on d line and other ones pressing there and you took a kicker late in the second. Laughable…..

  23. Eric Says:

    Dallas had the best kicking percentage in the league last year. 93.8.

    Went 4-12.

    Hell of a kicking game though.

    Insanity wrapped in stupidity.

  24. SOGGY Says:

    The lonesome kickers get no respect until they are needed and put points on the board. Its football and he is very important to our future SB.. Just sayin.. we only gave up our free 4th and used our 3rd in the 2nd.. 3 starters..I like it.. Go Bucs..

  25. DaRealistBucFan Says:

    R.O. we already lose to the Saints we’ve beat them once the last 8 times we’ve played them you idiot.Aguayo isn’t gonna change that.

  26. Rswag Says:

    Let’s just say, as you ram us for whining, if our kicker is scared and can’t kick it through the pipes, don’t want to hear any excuses. We will remember, that’s a high enough pick to feel the sting for failure to score those beloved 3 points.

  27. Tbbucs3 Says:


    Great logic, they also had Matt Cassel playing quarterback.

  28. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    I wish I could hop up out the bed…turn my swag on.
    Picks are investments. That’s what this was. And was reassurance for our young qb. Idk what team you watched last year, but we have needs everywhere. We addressed one with the best player we could. Go eat some cheese now

  29. PanToss Says:

    Is there a punter we can waste another pick on?

  30. MadMax Says:

    LOVE THE PICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im all in with Licht on this one. Great SMART move!!!

  31. Eric Says:


    And we have a crappy defense still.

    Sure kick a field goal…….watch the other offense shred us for a touchdown.

    Great winning strategy.

  32. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    Maybe we should pay Koenen another $18mil to come back

  33. Couch Fan Says:

    So you were expecting us to use every single pick on defense and then next year all our problems are solved? If your answer to this is “no” then common sense should tell you that we dont have to spend every pick on defense. If your answer to this is yes, then please continue.

    Always amusing to listen to people who think they are smart.

  34. Sethb22 Says:

    Robot A-Gun-Toe… Jamie’s boy… Makes a mean crab leg… We good … Go Bucs

  35. PanToss Says:

    All you bonehead licht homers, let me know what u think of the kicker pick When the final score is bucs 9 everyone 42.

  36. PanToss Says:

    Get use to that kinda of beating with minimal help on D

  37. rayjay1122 Says:

    Who was so polarizing for us to pick at #74 or #106? Doubtful anyone who will affect or contribute to games as much as a great kicker. Just saying.

  38. SOGGY Says:


    Why is lovie coming back?

  39. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    Bring in ayers, grimes, a handful of other free agents, draft a CB and de and we still say “I want my pound of flesh!”

  40. Couch Fan Says:

    You sound like a very angry man. Keep crying for us. Only thing better than our draft is the regular Symphony of Tears orchestra afterwards.

  41. bo Says:

    I don’t like taking a kicker this high either, but there’s a reason Jason Licht is a GM and none of you are….Don’t quit your day job.

  42. PanToss Says:

    Why!? Because our dumb ass GM just wasted a top pick on a player with minimal impact when we have gapping holes on nearly EVERY position of our D. That’s Why.

  43. Couch Fan Says:

    Only holes we have are DE and safety. Exaggerate much little man? And nobody knows if the pick is wasted an hour after he was drafted. Could you possibly sound anymore unintelligent?

  44. PanToss Says:

    Last yr opposing QBs completed 70% of their passes on us, so how’s arroyo gonna help again…?

  45. Capt Blighe Says:

    Look at his highlights every kick is barely inside the uprights.
    take him in the 3rd you could make your argument. trading 2 picks is insanity.

  46. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    Minimal impact lol are we talking about the same sport? Every team has a kicker that directly impacts the game numerous times so…

  47. Nick Says:

    Anyone remember Automatica? Well this kicker is more accurate than gramatica was.. In this new NFL (the NFL rule change of FG was made perm.) kickers are a premium now, you better have a great kicker or you will be throwing points away. Connor Barth is good. This guy is our Janikowski.

  48. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    We had a bad team last year…would’ve beaten the skins and Texans with a kicker…js

  49. SOGGY Says:

    He like many good kickers will have maximum impact not minimal as you say, or at least he better..

  50. finishers Says:

    I thought we were getting a safety 🙁

  51. Trubucfan22 Says:

    All these emo buc fans. Lol my 2 yr old isnt as whiney as some of these fools.

  52. PanToss Says:

    Yes but they aren’t taking then in the 2nd round, hands down dumbest move by bucs since drafting Bo Jackson.

  53. BUC IT Says:

    I have really liked most of Licht picks the last few years but this one…. this one…..was a idiotic move! We moved up for a kicker. We could’ve gotten one the top Kickers in college in the 4th round! Maybe not this guy but probably the 2nd best one. The 3rd round can be a valuable pick. Maybe I should remind you that John Lynch, Rhonde Barber, Lavonte David, Kwon Alexander and Ali Marpet were all drafted later than this kicker! This was a stupid stupid stupid move. There just is no way to spin it. This was just a bad awful hideous move but hopefully Licht proves me wrong.

  54. Nick Says:

    I guess Licht will have to have three straight good drafts before some one gives him a pass.. Gooberville we are

  55. Pawel Says:

    Our safteys are slow and DTs are soft but we got a kicker.

  56. passthebuc Says:

    I love to watch comments.

    Maturity will help most of your readers.

  57. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    “We could’ve gotten him in the 4th?” Cuz we know what other gms were gonna do lol “worst pick since bo Jackson” geezus…”I take a whiskey drink, I take a vodka drink…”

  58. CL Bucs Says:

    I am apalled at the stupidity of Licht. He did NOT have to pick a kicker so high and give away 2 picks. We could have had a WR like Braxton Miller if we stayed in the 3rd! We could have had a quality DT!! but noo we have the least important position besides a punter!

  59. Nick Says:

    Pan toss, you clearly don’t know anything about the bo Jackson pick to say that stupidity. What about taking gramatica 3rd round in 99? Or do you only know about Bo Jackson cuz someone told you about it.

  60. Eric Says:

    Not only barely inside the upright but barely long enough.

    Not a tremendously strong leg.

    Lots of good kickers and most are undrafted. Cause teams don’t waste high picks on freaking kickers. Most don’t wast any pick on a kicker.

    We’ve had some good kickers over the years. Never had to piss away a second rounder for one.

    Dumb. Just plain dumb.

  61. iamkingsu Says:

    Now they are laughing at us on nfl network total access. But Licht has #IntelAndHeGetsPaidMillionsOfDollars

  62. DB55 Says:

    The draft starts tomorrow.

  63. Couch Fan Says:

    Right. We should never do what most teams seldom do. Never think outside the box. Always do the predictable. Thats a sure way to win football games.

  64. BamaBuc Says:

    Half these posters I never even see on here. I don’t post a lot but this is comical. Boo boo. We took a kicker and he will be the difference in at least one game. Absolutely worth it for a win or 2 each year….Moving on we are in position for Billings or Cooper. Loving where we at. Go Bucs!!!!!!

  65. Couch Fan Says:

    I really dont know how some of you arent GMs. I mean your logic is so sound. And clearly you have major inside sources to know all the stuff you swear to know.

  66. iamkingsu Says:


    We should’ve had to picks to start off day 3 but….

  67. Marvelous Mayhem Says:

    What was our kicker history last season? I don’t think it started well.

  68. iamkingsu Says:

    Nothing was wrong with the pick it’s just that he jumped of 15 spots lmao and gave up a 4th

  69. BamaBuc Says:

    But what. Do we not iamkingsu? We traded 1 of our early fourth round picks. Not both. What’s your point?

  70. aaronmay Says:

    Really liked our draft – then we draft a kicker in the 2nd round after a trade up…? wow – I think our GM started drinking

    wonder how many war rooms laughed out loud on that one….

  71. SB with Jameis Says:

    “And I’m Just ITCHING to tell you about them”
    “Everyone has such wonderful fun!”
    “Seafood CockTails, Crabs, Crayfish”

  72. iamkingsu Says:

    The point is for the mentally disabled. Would rather have 2 picks or 1 pick??

  73. BamaBuc Says:

    Oh lord we jumped up 10 to 15 spots to get a game changer. Fire everyone. Lmao

  74. iamkingsu Says:


    I meant two not to

  75. iamkingsu Says:


    The game changer would’ve still been there lol. That’s my point.

  76. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Who likes losing by three or less? Ain’t going to happento often now! Just get the ball to the 45 Jameis )…..!

  77. Brent bull/buc Says:

    You can draft a kicker in 6th rd or waiver wire. They are relatively cheap. We have no depth at dt and below average safeties. Those players can’t be found late in the draft or on a waiver. Dumb move. Framing billings and reed and bell were there Boyd too. Nobody ever trades up into the 2nd rd for a kicker it just doesn’t happen.

  78. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    You said we don’t have a pick but we do. We got s free one in the first round

  79. Eric Says:

    I’ve been posting on here since 2009.

    And I’ve seen a lot of dumb moves.

    This is another one. Not even Raheem Morris would do this.

  80. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    That’s a game changer!

  81. Spanishbuc Says:

    Ask Tom Brady and Bill Belichick if a great kicker is worth it. Viniteri won them 2 super bowls.

  82. SB with Jameis Says:

    Is that you Pablo?

  83. tnew Says:

    Its better draft pick than Dexter Jackson tho.

  84. BamaBuc Says:

    I don’t see how moving up for a game changer within 10 to 15 picks is a reach or bad move when we got the free 4th and still got our guy in the first and the nations top locker was projected in the 3rd rd. It might be a shocker but you all will come around or just be stubborn and not admit it was worth it.

  85. Spanishbuc Says:

    Not Pablo, I’m an actual Spanish Buc fan.

  86. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    I’ve been living here since 1990. But since you’ve been posting since ’09 idk if I’m worthy. But I see a need filled with a quality player. Everyone must’ve had a rough week, lot of hormones leading to delusional whoa-is-me typical hater posts…no one will ever be satisfied. We could trade for JJ watt and someone would find a way to complain

  87. Couch Fan Says:

    It always seems like the FSU/UF players get the most scrutiny

  88. Eric Says:

    OH yeah the kicker won the Super Bowls.

    Sure he did.

  89. SB with Jameis Says:

    Sorry Spanish. Sin faltar el respeto previsto

  90. PanToss Says:

    Ok nick t/dick, Bo Jackson pick for the record was the worst draft in bucs history because we did him dirty, to this day when it’s mentioned his eyes go fire. As far as you and your licht homers, bucs blew every pick so far this yr. could’ve taken tunsil at 11 and Jamis would have blindside protection for a decade. Instead we take an undersized corner to go with our other undersized corner. Took a drug addict in t/second, I’m sure all the kids will want to grow up just like him, way to add a good character guy there licht, then waste a few picks for a kicker. But you keep the love because the rest of the experts and grown up fans are howling with laughter at us.

  91. SB with Jameis Says:

    Lol Couch. FSU fans before the draft. ” Ew I don’t want Hargreaves” Then we pick Aquayyo in the second and it is the second coming ……Smh

  92. BamaBuc Says:


  93. aaronmay Says:

    I am trying to figure out how a kicker is a game changer for a team that gave up 70% completions…and zero pass rush. We need depth every where – throwing a dart anywhere is better than a kicker

    Trying to think of a bad team growing and adding depth – then drafting a Kicker in the 2nd round. How has that panned out?

    The most clutch kicker I can think of is –

    In 1996, Vinatieri was signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent to be a placekicker. He played in New England for the first 10 years of his NFL career, during which he played in four Super Bowls, winning three titles

    I’d like to think our GM had enough confidence in his staff to possibly draft a real game changer for his really thin team.

    We move on – its only football – but a really bad move…can’t wait for his contract to come up and we let him go because we can’t afford it.

  94. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    pan haha cmon? You’re kidding right? You’re a blast tho, names tunsil: yet you complain spence was a drug addict

  95. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    It’s all about risk. 3rd round picks bust at a 70% clip. 4th rounders at a 80% clip. I get that we took him high and could have gotten other players, but some of you guys are acting like we traded HOF’ers for him. The draft is a crapshoot as it is. Why not take the player whose position is the easiest to translate to the NFL game. The percentages show that those picks we used will probably bust anyway. And the 4th we used to move up was the pick that we stole from the Bears due to them getting their BrownEyes OWNED by Licht.

  96. WhatTheBucIsWrongWithYou Says:

    Needs: CB, dline, s, wr, oline kicker

    FA: 1de, 2cb, 1 g
    Draft: Best cover CB, best edge rusher, best kicker

    Man I’d hate to be so bitter in my life

  97. iamkingsu Says:


    He was going to be there in the 3rd. Just like marpet (out of div 3 Hobart) would’ve been there and Kwon Alexander would’ve been there when we selected them last year. I have no problem with any of those picks. Its just a pattern with licht he’s paranoid.

  98. Eric Says:

    We did this cause the touchback rule “might” change?


  99. Mike Johnson Says:

    Kid has Youth working for him. At the NFl level he will continue to develop his craft and better strength in his legs. Conner Barth missed a lot of kicks last year folks. If this kid keeps his head on straight, he will pay off for us in the tight games. Don’t think he is a gamble at all. Hell, we might even start winning a lot of those close games. Yes, Mike Johnson is down with this pick!

  100. unbelievable Says:

    @iamkingsu we moved back into the 2nd last year bc Marpet wasn’t going to be thee when we picked in the 3rd. Obviously Licht thought the same about Roberto.

    I think it’s a reach too, but if they had a 3rd round grade on him what’s the difference. We only have up an extra 4th.

    Would have been better if we could have got him in round 3 and then used our two 4th rounders to move back into round 3.

  101. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo is happy that Hason has big cajones….Pablo loves this pick.”

  102. Dreambig Says:

    Wow! I started drinking a bit early on this fine Friday afternoon so I fell asleep around pick 48. Imagine my surprise when I woke up and saw this! I am totally psyched! Been watching this man for a few years in total awe of his consistancy. Great job Licht!

  103. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I am going to add this:

    Other than the fact that it was a fantastic pick remember he also wanted to be a Buc, just like Hargreaves. With this they are also fixing that locker room chaos left behind last season. They have players WANTING to play here. They have players that are good friends with our leader Jameis.

    That was a very important thing that needed fixing. The locker room mentality and the lack of players wanting to be a Buccaneer.

    So it’s a win win all around, and those that don’t see that the locker room culture didn’t need fixing with players that WANT to play and Want to play as a Buccaneer.

    I’m beyond excited for the picks so far..remember the Bucs let go 8 players today, meaning we have a lot more room..

    And funny, so many user names are people I haven’t ever seen here before..

  104. aaronmay Says:

    Just do a little research – our GM is not perfect – he started drinking early and made a mistake…how many real game changers did we pass on to take a kicker.

    Aguayo left school a year early, but he already earned his degree and was the most accurate kicker in college football, so there wasn’t a lot left to prove.

    He’s the highest-drafted kicker since Mike Nugent went in the second round (47th overall) in 2005.

  105. iamkingsu Says:


    Yes Marpet was going to be there lol He had a great senior bowl but he played at division 3 Hobart. He was the first div 3 player to be drafted in the 1st 2 rounds ever. It’s just Licht. Turn on nfl network right now they are laughing at us. Because they know it was an unnecessary move

  106. Lou. Says:

    Problem to me is the opportunity cost. Would love to take a flyer on someone like the German kid, Boehringer. 225 lb. wideouts with 4.43 speed do not grow on trees. Sure, he played low level competition and will probably wash out. But well worth a 5th rounder, say, to play special teams and develop.

    But throwing away a 4th (on Arroyo) and a 5th (on George Johnson) means we don’t have the quantity of picks needed.

    Even if this works out, it still will be disappointing.

  107. Couch Fan Says:

    Right because the analysts are always right. More sound logic from the future GMs. Dont use your own brain, watch the people on TV theyll tell you all the right moves. LMAO.

  108. DallasBuc Says:

    Because, he loves AC/DC.
    Stupidity is weirdly undying

  109. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    LifeOfABucsFan, that’s a good point I hadn’t thought of. The chemistry of this team is starting to lean Jameis’ way. We need players who have passion and want to be here!

  110. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Lou, Boehringer will probably go undrafted. If we want to keep him from the Vikings, we’d have to take him in the 6th round.

  111. Birdman Says:

    The Patriots had two straight picks after the Cheifs picked… They missed an extra point in the AFC championship game. I know we traded up, but we didn’t give up anything we didn’t have two days ago. I really do believe Licht sniped him from the Patriots.
    Think about it, if the Patriots were to use a 3rd round pick on the all time most accurate kicker in NCAA history no one would bat an eye..

    This is a high-stakes, ballsy move not doubt, but on paper the Bucs drafted arguably the best (or in Aguayos case, most definitely) the best player at on the board and fulfilled a major needs. The best pure cover corner, the best pure pass rusher, and the best pure placekicker in years for your first three picks and a little grit in round one.

  112. aaronmay Says:

    Everyone for the kicker tell me – when has drafting a kicker in the 2nd round worked out for that team…

    Side Note – who plays safety for this team? Who is our 2nd WR next year?

    Depth depth depth – AKA Tom Brady in the 6th round

    You know his GM buddy in Tennessee is going to TOTALLY give him the business about this pick….I sense lots of laughing – maybe even snot out of the nose laughing – then he’ll buy him a drink and thank him or leaving a real lottery ticket on the board for Tennessee

  113. Pantherinbucland Says:

    I’m a panther fan living in bucs territory and I just love the kicker pick almost as much as the spud you picked up in the first, bejamain will swat hargraves like a tiny LITTLE nat. Besides I wouldn’t worry to much about using that kicker, first off he can’t hit from outside 35 yds, and let’s be real here, you first have to get in scoring position, so unless there’s a big bag of crab legs at the goal line your never gonna see that kicker utilized, but no it’s a great 2nd rd pick. Just listen to all the experts. hahahahahaha same ole bucs.

    Yep..someone else mentioned it on another board..wording it so much better than I did…but if the chemistry in the locker room wasn’t getting fixed, that cancer would have kept spreading. ALL the draftees have a connection for Tampa Bay or for Jameis..and I think this is going to be the trend for the rest of the draft..

    Made me wonder earlier, if maybe that’s why they didn’t resign Danny Lansannah??? Maybe someone else can fill this in….

  115. DallasBuc Says:

    At least incompetent Lovie Smith isn’t around to muddy the waters about who’s calling the personnel shots.
    Former lapdog is feeling his oats and I can appreciate that. I am a fan of a kicker as of today. Been a while. Viva Grammatica!
    Go Bucs

  116. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Greg Hardy is not being signed by Dallas…it’s official..

  117. Pantherinbucland Says:

    I’m sorry, I shouldn’t pick on the lowly bucs, you havent won in such a long time your getting a little desperate. Keep rocking those special teams, someone should let your GM know Demarcus Russell is still out there, maybe you can use your 4th or 5th on him.

  118. DI Says:

    Geez. Everyone here seems to have more inside information than the front offices that get paid millions of dollars to do their job. These NFL owners must be crazy to spend that much when we have so many connected people on this website’s comment boards

    NFL Network laughing at us? Who cares? You can’t be a leader or a winner by following the herd. If Aguayo is close to as good as he was in college, he will be one of our leading scorers for years to come. All we gave up was a free pick that we got from Chicago and drafted the best kicker in college football with our 3rd rounder. Very smart! Jason Licht and team are doing a fantastic job again in this years draft. All you guys with your “you dont draft a kicker” nonsense are way off on this one. Special teams is a huge part of the game and having an elite kicker is extremely valueable.

  120. Guzzie Says:

    If some how DT Andrew Billings falls 10 spots or a trade up it would make the 2nd round kicker easier to swallow, he’s a 1st round talent no idea why he’s still available

  121. Ed Kerber Says:

    The Bucs didn’t give up a 3rd and a 4th round pick. They essentially lost a 4thround pick, As the 3rd rounder was probably going to get the kicker anyway. There is nobody I was interested in between where they picked in the 2nd and where KC ended up picking in the 3rd. Lot of picks after KC that I wish didn’t happen. I think Glennon Alterraun Verner and/or Jonathan banks are 4th round pick trade bait.

  122. cometowin2 Says:

    I think Roberto is going to have a great career with the Bucs. I just hope Braxton Miller sucks since that’s who I wanted there after Shepard and Boyd went. Wanted Roberto in the 5th but come on that was not going to happen. I will take the bet that Roberto is more likely a 10- 15 year starter and All Pro than Braxton. Got a feeling it will work out. I would feel a lot better if we can land Andrew Billings or Sheldon Day at DT early tommorow. Can’t find anything why Billings is dropping.

    Really wanted to move up in the 2nd for Shepard but he went too soon. Could of lived with Boyd or Braxton. We really need to find a WR in the 5th or 6th with some speed to play the slot. WR is now our weakest position.

    Finally get me baby Gronk or Vitale at FB in the 6th and I will feel great about this draft.

  123. Buc you Says:

    Dudes, im of the mind that this defense is not too far away even before the draft. You dont get shredded by 3 or 4 scores often because of talent at this level, its mainly coaching.
    Def. Not weak at linebacker between kwon and david
    Certainly not soft on the inside with mccoy or Mcdonald
    Secondary has some quality starters that need to be arranged
    When it comes down to DE i personally think jaq smith is about to put it all together. Sometimes it takes a minute. Check out James Harrison for a recent example.
    You got 2 new DEs added between free agency and at least 1 starter already on the roster. Solid rotation to give a shot too.
    With the kicker….weird pick but definitely seems like a situation of low risk high reward here.
    Plus you cant tell me you dont love Gramatica Automatica. This guy even looks like hes his replacement.

  124. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Buc you says..excellent post..best one to read before bedtime..
    Another round tomorrow and Licht has some tricks up his sleeve..we have some bait coming up!

    Goodnight my fellow buc fans…

  125. cometowin2 Says:

    Move Banks to safety and we upgrade that position. DT’s Billings or Day at our 4th pick. Move up with one of the 6th’s if you have too. This would make everyone feel better about the whole draft. Let’s get value the rest of the way. Need at least one more starter.

    Draft baby Gronk or Vitale at FB and with Billings or Day we could have 5 starters.

  126. unbelievable Says:

    Billings or Day + Cooper Pharoh + baby gronk or a safety.

  127. cometowin2 Says:

    I like Cooper also but wish he was faster. Comes up big when you need him. Don’t think he will last till our 5th rounder. As much as I want another receiver, Billings or Day is the proper pick.

  128. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Billings, Ridgeway or Day at DT

    Houston-Carson at FS

    Howard or Dixon at RB

    Boehm at OC

    Hogan at QB

    QB? Damn right. Glennon’s a goner and Licht learned from BB to draft a good QB prospect every few years. Wouldn’t surprise me.

  129. Gmax0522 Says:

    Geez…. passed on Vonn Bell and Braxton Miller?
    I sure hope Powell is still on the board when they pick next!
    Gotta get that other OSU safety, he’s just as good as Bell, then I might be able to swallow this move!

  130. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    01. Chris Moore, Cincinnati, WR
    02. Jakeem Grant, TTECH, WR
    03. Kolby Listenbee, TCU, WR
    04. Aaron Burbridge, Michigan St., WR

  131. Big Sombrero Says:

    In Licht We Trust!

  132. 1sparkybuc Says:

    The Bucs would have been 8 and 8 last year with Bobby on the roster. Every year there will be a game or two that will hinge on his leg. It appears that some here have forgotten or never knew when our kicker missed 5 out of 6 very make able attempts. That won’t happen again. We “needed” a kicker. We got the best one available. As for other “needs”, we needed better coaches with better schemes. We already got that. Tha’s a drastic improvement over the last 4 decades. The Bucs have had great defenses in the past. They’ve never had a great offense to go along with it. With these coaches, I believe we soon will.it never hurts to be solid on special teams as well. A great kicker is key to that. A 3rd or 4th round player at any other position rarely has more of an impact than a dependable kicker. Licht knows that. Koetter knows that. Some posters here don’t. Licht and Koetter are paid for their opinions. Their jobs depend on making the right choices. So far, I believe they have.

  133. UncleBuc Says:

    I laugh at the moronic posts here. The NFL today, probably 4 games on your schedule are decided by 3 points or less. I look at NE, Vinatieri won them 3 Superbowls, but kickers don’t mean squat, or worth a 2nd round pick. Uhhhhhhhh, this kids motion and delivery is identical to Vinatieri, high off the foot, end over end kicks, they don’t hook or slice. We lost 2-3 games last year because of kicking. But we don’t need that position at all, why would you draft the most accurate kicker in ncaa history when you lost 2-3 games because of your kicking. The other 7 games lost where 4 probably on secondary, we drafted a hell of a man corner, and the other 3.on lack of pass rush, oh we addressed that to. Man you guys are right, WE ABSOLUTELY HAVE SCREWED THIS DRAFT UP. We have not got any players we need to help us win. Crap, I’m so sorry, your right Licht should be fired.

  134. Bucnut Says:

    Walter football is comparing this move to the bone-headed moves Matt Millen used make when he was Lyons GM. I agree with him.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Roberto Aguayo, K, Florida State KICK THE KIELBASA INTO THE BACKSIDE MILLEN Grade
    Oh, man. I’m always giddy when I get to give out a Millen grade, and this was a Millen grade if I’ve ever seen one. Look, I get that kickers are more important now, and I understand that Roberto Aguayo projects as a great kicker. But, come on. Another team that really needed Aguayo was planning on taking him in the fourth round, which would’ve been justified. The Buccaneers grabbed him in the second – and surrendered a fourth to move up to get him! Who were the Buccaneers leaping to get a kicker? Why would they make such a stupid decision like this!?

  135. Patrick in VA Says:

    Joe, I have a feeling you’ve been doing some advertising for this site at Trump rallies lately. Some of these folks on here are that special and dangerous mix of angry and dumb. Kudos to you though for diverting their attention from rioting at hotels to talk about a sport that they clearly are not familiar with.

  136. Big Irish Says:

    Bar Maid! A shot of Jameson & a pint of Guinness please!!
    A brilliant pick Jason!!! ROBERTOOOOOOO!!!!!

  137. Fsuking Says:

    Never how we traded up to get Marpet last year? Ahead of the Patriots! Just did it again baby! Whooo

  138. AceofAerospace Says:

    Great pick. With every pick in the second round, I was worried some other team would take him. Yeah, it’s unusually high for a kicker. He’s not a usual kicker. Did any of you that are angry ever watch him play? As a devout gator fan, I hated him. I hated him because he’s a GREAT kicker. I didn’t hate him because he sucked. Welcome to Tampa. I couldn’t be happier with this draft.

  139. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Kicking FG from 45 yard line is 57 yard attempt.Aguayo is money inside the 40.40 yard attempts mean ball is snapped from 28 yard line. Greedy Bob wants TD’s when you get that close the redzone.
    that said kickoffs and point after will also be a big part of Aguayo’s game.

  140. Bob in Valrico Says:

    if Aguayo can become money within the 50,then Licht may add to his draft
    legend status.

  141. Wes Says:

    Good kicker? Yeah. Worth 2 picks? I don’t know…. We have needs at WR and Safety still and now we’re stuck with 4th round talent. We did find Kwon there last year. I trust that Lichte will find another gem

  142. Patrick in VA Says:

    You guys just don’t get it. We gave up nothing!! We gave up a 4th round pick that we got because we moved back and picked up the guy we were going to get at #9 anyway. We didn’t give up a 3rd round pick, we upfront the pick to a second round pick using another pick that we got for free. If we’d picked Aguayo in the third round nobody would have batted an eye. We used our 3rd round pick to get him, we just used it in the second round to ensure that we for him. Get a clue people

  143. FortMyersDave Says:

    Good point Patrick, most of the criticism is coming from trolls who would flame whomever the Bucs pick anyhow!

  144. Dave Pear Says:

    Actually a field goal from the 45 yard line is more like a 62 yard attempt.

  145. buccfan305 Says:

    I want a holder with the next pick…you know they are starting to keep stats on the laces being out….that percentage has got to be top notch if we’re gonna wun another Superbowl.

  146. old buc fan Says:

    Patrick in Va. If we had picked him in third we would still have the other 4th and they all count so YES we did give up an extra pick. WE also made a bad pick at that point, too many other pressing needs.
