bucs cheerleader 0918OK folks, have at it. Bang it here for your thoughts on Day 3 of the NFL Draft today, including Bucs chatter.

Who knows, maybe Jason Licht will trade up into the fourth round and select a backup quarterback?

Joe’s choices? Nothing but wide receivers and defensive ends. All. Day. Long.

    • DeAndre Houston-Carson William & Mary 6-0¾ 201 4.54

  5. Dave Says:


    Day- take him off the list. He has injuries all over

    Andrew Billings is the DT to snag. He was projected late first to third and definite rotational guy seeing the field.

    I like Tapper too.

  6. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    • Dominique Alexander Oklahoma 6-0 232 4.65
    • Nick Kwiatkoski West Virginia 6-2 243 4.73
    • Quentin Gause Rutgers 6-0 232 4.65
    • James Burgess Louisville 6-0 229 4.70

  7. David Says:

    Im an FSU homer but even I question why we gave up soo much to get Aguayo. And a 3rd and a 4th? There were trade ups in 1st round that less it seemed.

  8. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Thx for the update

  9. Dave Says:

    Duke safety cash is still there?

    Snag him.

  10. Dave Says:

    Not sure why Billings has fallen. Haven’t heard of an injury concern

  11. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    • Kolby Listenbee T.C.U. 6-0 197 4.39
    • Chris Moore Cincinnati 6-1 206 4.53
    • Jakeem Grant Texas Tech 5-6 165 4.38
    • Aaron Burbridge Michigan St. 6-0 206 4.56

  12. CaptBUC Says:

    I agree DT -Billings if he is there.

    Safety – Killebrew or DE – Judon are possibilities.

    I would still like to see a surprise at Wr maybe in the 5th like Boehringer or Grant because as Chucky would say they have “JUICE !!!” just check the tape.
    Then finish out with Gronkowski

  13. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Offensive Lineman

  15. CaptBUC Says:


    Thanks for all the info !!!

  16. LUVMYBUCS Says:


  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I think fans are looking at things the wrong way on the Aguayo pick….
    You have to look at the draft this way:
    VH3,Spence, Aguayo…….those are our first three picks…..

    Forget what we paid for Aguayo because he is as much a sure thing as you can get……after all we drafted Bowers in the second round and Myron Lewis in the third.

    I am quite certain that we had to do what we did or someone else would own him now. I don’t think anyone questions his capability.

  18. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Will Parks Arizona 6-1 194 4.60

  19. USFBUC Says:

    Along the same lines as TBBF said and some others last night – we really used a third rd pick on Aguayo because the fourth was free money. We also got another guy who wanted to play for the Bucs and the best at his position this year. I would have maybe liked to see different picks personally but getting three players that fill areas of need that are considered to be the best or one of the best in this draft is a really good draft.

  20. finishers Says:

    we should give up all 2017 picks and move up two spots and draft a running back!

  21. old buc fan Says:

    TBBF I do not question his abilities at all but after even making the move that put us back in the second round I think that there were much more pressing needs to help our team other than Roberto. I think a great DT or DE at that point would have been a smarter move to help our team, and there were some available. Oh well we are the Bucs after all.

  22. DallasBuc Says:

    I am fine with the pick since it really was just a 3rd and no one can argue that he is the best player at his position in this draft or most any draft. That is worth something, especially since we have struggled so much over the last 8-10 years to find consistency at this position.
    My only concern is that he regressed over the last year. He was probably picked a round early but worth the risk. I give Licht credit for sticking his neck out on this one.

  23. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    They upgraded it into a 2ND for the price of a 4th…a 4th they didn’t originally have.

    It was a brilliant move.

  24. DemBoyzFromDaBay727 Says:


    Don’t forget that K.J. Dillion and Jeremy Cash are still there for the taking as well.

    And for WR you still have…

    Mike Thomas – Southern miss (Todd Monken will be pulling for him. Big, tall, possesion guy that is built like a V-Jax.)

    Pharoah Cooper – South Carolina (a well rounded receiver that can basically do it all.)

    Demarcus Robertson – Florida (talented guy that can play the slot. Might be able to snag him in the 6th if we’re lucky, since we don’t have a 5th)

  25. DallasBuc Says:

    Bonzai- relax.

  26. Scurvy Dogs Says:

    The more guys we get who actually want to play for the Bucs and are elite, the better off we are. We are changing the culture here slowly.

    Everyone is getting their panties in a bunch over trading a 4th we didn’t have on Wednesday. I trust Licht’s Intel. If he traded up, he’s sticking it to another team…of this I am sure. He is a smart guy.

    And another thing…what’s up with all of these people who I’ve never seen post before? You all come around just to be negative and it makes you look like a troll. One actually said he was moving on to the Jags. To me, he is the mascot for all of you new negative nancies lol.

  27. MadMax Says:

    4th – Pharoh Cooper is my pick for us if we are going to address WR….and we need to. But yes Ive heard, they’re focusing on D. So then its Andrew Billings. But he’ll go quickly. Worries about his arm length and only being used in 35% of plays. Well, its a 4th and Im sure he can be coached to do more. Just not understanding that one.

    5th or also a 6th if there – Safeties Jayron Kearse Clemson (nephew of Javon) and Tyvis Powell Oh St.

    other 6th – WR Moritz Boehringer….why not, its a 6th!!

  28. Jjbuc Says:

    Bonsai- I’ve been saying it all night, amazing how people can’t see that we gave up a 3rd for a 2nd, it’s laughable all these “experts” don’t see this. He has the potential to lead the NFL in scoring, this isn’t our grandfathers, dads and our generations typical Bucs offense.

  29. Alstott up the gut Says:

    No idea why Billings is still there but get him! Tapper, Day, Killebrew or Listenbee all would be solid picks right now as well!

  30. LordCornelius Says:

    My heads still spinning from Aguayo pick but I’ve calmed:

    1. If it works out he will be a Buc for 15-20 years and one of the best kickers in the league and a reason we win an extra game or 2 every year. That’s worth a 1st if that happens lol but a lot to count on.
    2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE our first 2 picks so much that I really don’t care.
    3. The player pool of available guys isn’t that depleted honestly compared to what was available in the 3rd. The drop off seemed to happen mid to late 2nd for me and the next pool is deep into the 4-6 rounds

    Billings and Pharoah Cooper would be dream picks

  31. PRBucFan Says:

    My two picks come down to Cash and Cooper

  32. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Bucs will get best grade of entire draft, wasnt a fan of VH3 but to back it up w spence then aguayo awesome picks!!!

  33. Dano2200 Says:

    Still plenty of talent available to get a quality DT and SS. Fill in with a slot receiver and FB late or via UDFA = a great draft for the Bucs.

  34. Sumo Says:

    sequence: day 3
    Best DT available
    Best S available
    Fastest Receiver available
    Best Full Back available

  35. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Billings, Ridgeway, Listenbee, Cooper….Id love Billings but I dont think hell be there if the buccs trade-up….Ridgeway will be good as welll…and I’d love to get Listenbee to bolster our receiving corps and add a vertical element to our passing game!

  36. FortMyersDave Says:

    BucBonzai, great point of the trade up to get the FSU Automattica…. But alas the trolls will not let it go and whine, whine ,whine… Most real Buc fans realize the value of the Bucs two 2nd round picks, the trolls simply want to flame any positive intelligent post!

  37. Buccfan37 Says:

    The first two picks were graded a B from the site I looked at. A lot of A’s and some A+’s following those picks.

  38. Sumo Says:

    Old Scurvy Dogs made the best point I’ve seen anywhere. They are changing the culture to a winning culture year by year with Jason Light. I like these moves because guys that want to be here aren’t going to settle for losing.

  39. BradentonBuc Says:

    That DE from South Carolina State is a beast and long with the slot receiver, Pharoah Cooper from South Carolina

  40. SB with Jameis Says:

    Well……….with the addition of Agyoyo to the Bucs and Eddie Pinero to the Gators, I can safely say both may pro and college teams have the best kickers in their leagues! 🙂

  41. SB with Jameis Says:

    Billings and Pharoah Cooper would be dream picks
    AMEN LordC!!!!!!

  42. rayjay1122 Says:

    WR possibilities:
    Pharoh Cooper
    Kolby Listenbee
    Malcolm Mitchell
    Miles Killebrew (Compared to Sabby the goat though)
    Deandre Houston Carson
    Jalen Mills
    Andrew Billings
    Hassan Ridgeway
    Sheldon Day
    Christian Westerman
    Jerald Hawkins
    Vadal Alexander

    I think any of these guys could be targeted today.

  43. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    My Updated Wish List After Yesterday

    Round 4, Pick 10 (108)
    Miles Killebrew – Strong Safety
    DeAndre Houston-Carson – Free Safety

    Round 5, Pick 9 (148)
    Beau Sandland – Tight End
    Deiondre’ Hall – Corner Back (change to Safety; if we don’t take one)

    Round 6, Pick 8 (183)
    Deon Bush – Safety (if we don’t take one)
    James Cowser – Defensive End

    Round 6, Pick 22 (197) (From Redskins)
    Andy Janovich – Full Back
    Kenyan Drake – RB (Returner)

    Shawn Oakman – Defensive End
    Jakeem Grant – Return Specialist
    Kevin Hogan – Quarterback

  44. Adambomb418 Says:

    I want Andrew Billings or Hassan Ridgeway!!!

  45. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Actually, I wouldn’t mind a good WR.

  46. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Rashard Higgins – WR
    A little slow. not a speed guy. But reliable catcher and scores a lot of points. He could be worth it.

    FYI, Kenny Bell is a speed guy. In college, he led his team in yards, TDs and kick returns. He just needs game time to develop.

  47. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    S or WR please…..

  48. PRBucFan Says:

    I’m baffled so many people are looking past Jeremy Cash.

    Dude is a flat out playmaker

  49. Biff Barker Says:

    Trading up to grab a kicker in the second is about as questionable as trading up in the third for a division III unknown guard.

    Remember, the higher the monkey goes up in the tree, the more his arse shows.

  50. TCG1155 Says:

    We may as well take our 4 and 5 round picks and trade up higher in the 4th and take a friggin Punter to go with yesterday’s stellar pick.

  51. unbelievable Says:

    ESPN ticker is showing Bucs with #106 and #108 pick. Didn’t we give one of those up yesterday to trade back into the second? Or did Glennon get traded for a 4th?

  52. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Raiders are twits again, lol

  53. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    ESPN is screwing up as usual

  54. Guzzie Says:

    Maybe we can trade up and grab a long snapper next lol….gonna be pissed we get a guard…ok if we pick up Paul Perkins or Jordan Howard not needs but BPA if Ridgeway and Billings are gone both were potential 2nd rounders

  55. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Sheldon day gone

  56. unbelievable Says:

    Ok it’s updated now we only have #108.

    Damn, I got all excited again.

  57. SB with Jameis Says:

    Billings is still on the board guys. Keep your fingers crossed.

  58. Guzzie Says:

    Getting Billings would make up for the kicker picker

  59. unbelievable Says:

    Ridgeway billings or cooper at this point.

  60. PRBucFan Says:

    A little jealous of how dramatic improvement the jags have had on its defensive roster lol

  61. unbelievable Says:

    ESPN is the worst.

  62. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    I hope we draft either DeAndre Houston-Carson a Safety, Malcolm Mitchel a WR, or Jack Allen a Center. Billings would be ok at this point. I would personally go with Houston-Carson

  63. PRBucFan Says:

    I read billings is dropping because of a knee issue.

    Not sure how I feel about him.

  64. Destinjohnny Says:

    The bucs kinda lost me yesterday with that kicker bs

  65. unbelievable Says:

    Chiefs have 3 4th round picks. Too bad they don’t need a QB…

  66. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I don’t see why we need Billings. We’re stacked at DT.

  67. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:


    Kenyan Drake has already been drafted

  68. PRBucFan Says:

    Yea I’m thinking the same thing Bonzai

  69. Guzzie Says:

    I’m not sure if Billings is better than Ridgeway, its strength versus explosion, I’m just hoping we get one or the other

  70. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    It was a smart pick. Kickers are more important now, and he is the best of the class.

    He is an assured starter, just like the first 2 picks.

  71. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Also, I’m not too big on Billings, but you can never have too many DT’s. Ever

  72. SB with Jameis Says:

    I read about that too PR but it is BS. I think teams don’t see as good of “Pass Rusher” as they do “Run Stopper”. I think Hayes will do fine with him if we get him

  73. Brent bull/buc Says:

    You guys who say this kicker is so great how do you explain his average stats over 40 yards? I don’t get it. He was 5-9 over 40. That sux.

  74. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Outside of DT, which we DON’T need, Miles Killebrew, Safety, is the next BPA on defense.

  75. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh hush up about the kicker and get over it.

    It’s done. Deal.

  76. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    I hope we trade MG8 this round…fingers crossed

  77. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    He was 14-22 on kicks over 40 yards.

    I would take Houston-Carson over Kilebrew. Miles will end up being a hybrid LB. Houston-Carson has potential to be a stud.

  78. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol people regurgitating the same garbage like it means something

  79. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Brent bull/buc

    Hey stupid…he’s good inside 49 YARDS. It’s the 50+ yards where he isn’t.

    Stop your freaking constant trolling.

  80. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Draft Andrew Billings!!!!

  81. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    We need a wr, but I think we should wait till the 5th or 6th to take German guy, 6’4 and ran a 4.4 40. Can catch, but he is the only wr left that has size, speed and can catch.
    In Licht I Trust

  82. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Berto will improve on his long kicks as he adds more muscle. He is money on extra points, which are crucial now. Not the guy I would’ve picked in that situation but it still could’ve been worse. We now have a Kicker that can play for the next 20 years if he stays healthy. Couldn’t say that before yesterday.

  83. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I would sign Roddy White to a year contract and then wait to draft a WR next year…

  84. PRBucFan Says:

    Damn we traded back

  85. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    espn is showing the picks faster than nfln

  86. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Damn Chris Moore’s gone

  87. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Damn Ali is beautiful woman..

  88. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


  89. MadMax Says:

    Ryan Smith? CB? ok.

  90. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Ali (Cheerleader)

  91. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:


    I would love to draft the German kid in the 5th round.

  92. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Dickie V, lol

  93. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    A Cb? OK but……

  94. BamaBuc Says:

    Anyone know who that is?

  95. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Well there’s that folks

  96. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Ryan Smith DB

  97. unbelievable Says:

    Another CB?!?

    I’m starting to have some serious doubts about the draft this year.

  98. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Don’t understand taking another CB. He is a good player but we need a Safety. Not another corner. Once again could’ve been way worse.

  99. Couch Fan Says:

    Wow. Welcome to Tampa, Ryan.

  100. PRBucFan Says:

    Dicky V! 😀

    Scared me lol

    Not sure how I feel about Ryan Smith

  101. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Another short DB….I don’t care for this one.

  102. MadMax Says:

    Im eh, about him, and understand CB again, but with Billings still there? Man, he must have video of bong smoking AND shooting up.

  103. Couch Fan Says:

    There is a plan in place. It’s just not easy for us to see. But I trust Licht and Smitty

  104. unbelievable Says:

    We might be seeing just how much this team is missing Jon Robinson.

  105. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Hopefully Houston-Carson falls to the 5th.

  106. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Could they plan on converting him to safety?

  107. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Andrew Billings situations – reminds me of what happened to Tommy Kelly & Chris Canty a few years ago.

  108. Pa Privateer Says:

    Maybe we bounce a CB to safety?

  109. Bryan Says:

    See ya Verner!

  110. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    WTH? This is a head scratcher of a pick. Not sure I’m feeling it unless they are moving banks to safety. Loved the first 3, not so much the 4th.

  111. unbelievable Says:

    Could be. Or maybe thy are going to convert Banks to safety.

  112. Guzzie Says:

    How many CBs does that make on our team like 7, this draft just went from MEH to what the hell are you drinking Licht Andrew Billings isn’t a good pass rusher Hassan Ridgeway doesn’t have the best motor Miles Killebrew is small school and slow but who the hell needs a small school CB that will not see the field like ever

  113. PRBucFan Says:

    But it goes to show they really do feel our CBs were as horrible as advertised.
    We don’t know if they have safety planned for maybe Banks or this new kid?

    Interesting enough but our DBs were terrible last year lol

    Regardless until He gives us a reason not to


  114. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    AHHHHH….He’s a returner!

  115. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    I’m willing to bet we trade back up into the 4th using our 5th and one of our 6th. We should also trade Glennon for another 4th.

    Draft Houston-Carson and go ahead and grab the German with the other pick. There is still some really solid players on the board.

  116. Brian Says:

    Perhaps they like the safeties they have.. Stop being whiny bitches. Sheesh

  117. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Now it makes sense.

  118. ATrain Says:

    I think we need more help on the line and that will in turn help the Backs….

    The GM knows what they need but I don’t see it

  119. Bryan Says:

    Maybe Smith is Marpetish!

  120. unbelievable Says:

    He’s seems to be a physical specimen. Guess they see upside / potential. I really think we should have went WR though.

    Hopefully they target baby gronk next round bc cooper will be gone.

  121. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I am flummoxed for sure on this one…unless they are releasing a current CB or Banks moving to S…or both….


  122. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Really good report on Ryan Smith from ESPN…….maybe we will make him a safety…….he returns kicks…
    Doesn’t sound good for one of our CBs…..

  123. PRBucFan Says:

    Y’all do realize DT isn’t considered a need right?

    They love what Clinton brings to the table.

  124. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I believe they took Ryan Smith for his return abilities. The fact thqat he is a solid DB is a fringe benefit.

  125. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Billings won’t be on the field on the 3rd down. That’s a huge problem when drafting a player. Throw in a questionable knee and there you go. He could still be around in the 5th or 6th. Seems like some teams may have him off their board completely.


    Banks to safety?

  127. McClorasMaddenDaddy210 Says:


    That’s what I’m thinking…

  128. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Say Bye Bye to Banks

  129. Tiny Tim Says:

    @ buccbozaoi

    Exactly. We have seen the bucs do this before. Tarnard jackson and keith tandy were converted safeties. I love when people wonder why we picked someone when player x is still on the board. Thats easy…because your crap draft board is not the same as the 32 gms in the nfl. This is a passing league and billing is only a run stuffer. The bucs may not value a run stuffer in the 4th rd. Really not that difficult to understand.

  130. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I trust Licht……this guy may be like Marpet……a real sleeper…..

  131. ATrain Says:

    Our DLine was SOFT last year….You do realize that

  132. theodore Says:

    I’m disappointed we didn’t move up for a punter.

  133. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I trust Licht completely..this kid is getting great reviews I am happy with it…

  134. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    He is def a physical specimen. His return value will earn him a roster spot. He could also be a nickel corner for the future. That’s what people forget it seems. You draft guys for the future not for the 1st year. Especially in the 4th round and on.

    We have a solid core now with Banks, Hargreaves, and now Smith. Our future looks really bright. Grimes and Verner will help this year. After that the 3 guys mentioned above could shine. I’m ok with it.

  135. PRBucFan Says:

    Not only is he a returner but he was considered to go higher as a CB the guy has 4.4 speed and isn’t here just to be a special teamer.

    They have plans for him either as our future safety or #3 CB

  136. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    ATrain Says
    Our DLine was SOFT last year….You do realize that

    We are stacked at DT. We signed a DE and drafted a DE.

    It’s been addressed.

  137. ted Says:

    what number is our next pick

  138. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    And don’t forget, George Johnson might do well under the new DL Coach.

  139. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    PRBuc makes sense and he does have speed! a sleeper pick for sure..Licht recognises I completely trust in him..

  140. Brent bull/buc Says:

    Who other than Akeem are our backup dt? A wr could have been had with cooper and Higgins..

  141. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    CB Brent Grimes | Ryan Smith
    CB Alterraun Verner | Jude Adjei-Barimah
    SC Vernon Hargreaves | Josh Robinson

    Johnthan Banks???

  142. cmurda Says:

    I’ll defer to Licht on that pick. I know nothing about the guy. He’s undersized with small hands and average burst according to the draft profile but he has good awareness, anticipation and ball skills. He also was a solid returner. Sounds like a good prospect worthy of a 4th rd selection. I view this pick as a secondary depth signing with potential and the possibility of a kick returner that we sorely need.

  143. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Please tell me where the HELL – are we stacked at defensive Tackle (Ref: Carolina)

    C’mon bruh

  144. PRBucFan Says:

    Ryan Smith played safety at NC Central. Just converted to CB.

    I’d say he’s going to be our next safety

    He blew up the combine BTW

  145. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I don’t think we are drafting a WR..I think we are signing Roddy White and hit the WR class next year…or maybe sign an undrafted and have Roddy mold him??

    That’s my dream scenario…

    Thanks..I am getting happier with this pick the more I read about him!!!

  148. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    We have 4 DTs. How many do we need?

  149. unbelievable Says:

    I think you’re right Life, although I personally don’t know how much Roddy has left considering he still hasn’t been signed by anyone. But we do need to add another WR or 2.

  150. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    LDT Gerald McCoy
    RDT Akeem Spence Clinton McDonald

    Akeem Spence (FA) 2017
    Clinton McDonald (29)

  151. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Okay, you sold me on Billings. 😛

  152. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    You forgot Coleman. Future Hall of Famer

  153. DB55 Says:

    If hey Jude makes the team over banks I’ll be shocked.

  154. ATrain Says:

    Well let see Bonzai, maybe cut the ones who can stop a wet mop.

    3rd string QB ate us up last year ,,,, WHY because they could sit back and have a 3 course dinner….Yes the Backs had something to do with that… But we need a Beast in the line that will take pressure offbof McCoy so he has no more excuses…

  155. Tiny Tim Says:

    Ayers and gholson play both outside and inside. Chill with we need dt crap and let licht draft value with his picks. Some of you are hillarious

  156. MadMax Says:

    There goes Cooper 🙁

  157. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Tiny Tim

    Shhhh…they wanna feel smart.

  158. ATrain Says:

    Panthers are funny too they had a much better DLine than us and went out and got a beast..

    How many CB do we have now 10

  159. Jeagan1999 Says:

    What about the Bucs taking this German WR Boehringer in the 5th? 6’4″ 227 lbs and runs a 4.40 forty.

  160. Tiny Tim Says:

    Plus the bucs are going to be more aggressive on defense with many more blitzes. It will not be the only rush with 4 linemen 90% of the time. Chill

  161. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Don’t forget…a bunch of players will be released the next week

  162. cmurda Says:

    With Banks ability to hit and tackle and his ball skills I actually think he’s better suited as a safety. Namely a strong safety. I’m looking for Banks to emerge as a possible switch to safety. Licht and Smith know what they are doing on defense.

  163. ATrain Says:

    Bonzai is the smartest…Just ask him…

    Biggest Tool on here..
    Agree with him or your stupid..

    Bonzai how much do the Bucs pay you for your opinion?

  164. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    That would be interesting. But he seems a little thin to me for safety.

  165. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    ATrain…it sickens me that you think about my tool.

  166. LUVMYBUCS Says:




    You gonna call a guy that was signed to a reserve/futures contract depth?

  167. Guzzie Says:

    Ryan a Smith has potential to be a special talent we could be set at corner for the next 5 years especially if Banks resigns after a decent year

  168. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    “Agree with him or your stupid..”

    “Your” is possessive.

    The proper word is “you’re”.


  169. PRBucFan Says:

    Nah lol what part of Ryan Smith played a majority of his time at S is hard to understand?

    Licht knows what he’s doing y’all.

    And as far as Jude goes, a “rookie” who was able to put in such good tape last year more good tape than bad won’t be going anywhere imo

  170. ATrain Says:

    Of course you would use a 3rd grade come back…


  171. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    It was a joke, lol. I know he’s camp meat. But look! I stopped everyone from crying over taking a kicker in the second round. 😉

  172. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    You really must drop this obsession. “No” means “No.”


  173. PRBucFan Says:

    the bickering is humorous indeed lol

  174. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    No one is saying Ryan Smith isn’t a solid prospect. But is he better than Adrew Billings? C’mon for most of us that watched him PLAY – would disagree.

  175. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Sheesh, people…you must have missed my comment earlier

  176. MadMax Says:

    and there goes Billings 🙁 Im still stunned he dropped this far.

  177. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    LDT Domata Peko | Pat Sims
    RDT Geno Atkins | Brandon Thompson | Marcus Hardison

    Andrew Billings

    Now that’s depth lol

  178. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    There goes Deon Bush.

  179. MadMax Says:

    I know right Luv? So far just 1 Dline, Spence, which was needed but we couldve used a little more help. Guess next year’s class looks better. I’ll admit it does look awesome with Jonathan Allen and Myles Garrett.

  180. BamaBuc Says:

    Hopefully we can get Judon next

  181. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    We also signed a DE, didn’t we? Maybe the new DL Coach feels he can turn GJ around too.

  182. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Yep trade the farm for Myles Garrett. I’m ok with that

  183. PRBucFan Says:

    bro, imo DT isn’t a need

    so we won’t agree here, we can just agree to disagree 😀

  184. Couch Fan Says:

    Its odd that they say he dropped so far cuz he cant rush the passer but yet all the highlights they show are of him rushing the passer. Maybe he’ll prove them all wrong. But clearly every team thought the same way.

  185. MadMax Says:

    Alright, the last ones left for me, hopefully we’ll get one, S Jayron Kearse, S Tyvis Powell, or WR Boehringer. I have to go after 5th round, my best friend is celebrating his 50th today.

  186. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    I’m thinking that we need Bullringer in the 5th. It might be a reach, but the guy is BIG and FAST

  187. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, we signed Ayers Bonzai, I was talking about drafting though.

  188. Cobraboy Says:

    Please, Jakeem Grant, a Darren Sproles clone…

  189. MadMax Says:

    Bullringer….Boehringer….hahaha yeah.

  190. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I hated the Ayers signing, but people told me I was wrong about him. If Licht made the right choice in signing him…then we only needed one DE.

    Honestly, I was just stirring things up because i was sick of the kicker complaints.

  191. MadMax Says:

    I like finding those late round surprises though, and Billings will be the biggest one out of this draft.

  192. USFBUC Says:

    Another guy that fills an area of need for the team. What are the thoughts for the 5th and two 6th rounds?

  193. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    U know its our favorite day of the draft brotha

  194. Brent bull/buc Says:

    @buccaneer banzai your kicker missed 3 kicks 40-49 and 2 plus 50. Look it up. Pro football focus gives the pick a d-. As for our tremendous depth at dt I’ll chalk that up to another one of your blunders.

  195. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    3 kicks. Wow. Crucify him.

  196. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Anthony Zettel Penn St. 6-3⅞ 277 4.81
    Matt Judon Grand Valley St. 6-3 275 4.73
    Roy Robertson-Harris U.T.E.P. 6-5⅜ 256 4.81

  197. MadMax Says:

    Yes Sir!


    S Jayron Kearse, S Tyvis Powell, and WR Moritz Boehringer.

    Wouldnt mind Keenan Reynolds also, Navy QB, but use him as a return man.

  198. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    LDT Star Lotulelei | Paul Soliai
    RDT Kawann Short | Vernon Butler

    Now thats some depth!!!

  199. DaRealistBucFan Says:

    Buccaneer bonzai try reading the rest of Brent bull’s comment or do you not possess reading comprehension skills?!?!

  200. USFBUC Says:

    I like Listenbee and Boehringer at WR, there are several OL I like still out there, and a few safeties too.

  201. MadMax Says:

    Oh yeah, the Gronkster for FB……remember FB is a need, a late round need, but still a need.

  202. Guzzie Says:

    Hope we get FB Dan Vitale next another 10 year starter

  203. Stanglassman Says:

    DE Matt Judon Gand Vil St
    C Jack Allen Mich St
    S Houston-Carson Wil & Mary
    Wr- Listenbee TCU
    RB- Alex Collins Ark.

  204. USFBUC Says:

    @madmax – I like both of them at S but add in there Dillon from WVa

  205. ElioT Says:

    Win the trenches they say…

    Well not this Bucs team.

    My question is this:

    When/If McCoy, McDonald and Spence go down, who the f**k is going to step in at DT? Our D-line and undersized ends in particular are going to get worked and worn the f**k out all day by any competent running game.

    I know it’s early but wtf is going on?

  206. USFBUC Says:

    and Cash is out there too!

  207. PRBucFan Says:

    Crossing my fingers on Cash

  208. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    • Cole Toner Harvard 6-5¼ 306 5.32
    • Spencer Drango Baylor 6-5⅝ 315 5.27
    • Dominick Jackson Alabama 6-5 313 5.41
    • Jack Allen Michigan St. 6-1¼ 294 5.29
    • Jake Brendel UCLA 6-4⅛ 303 5.01

  209. feelthepewterpower Says:

    you guys talked me in Boehringer….wow….future dunkaneer?!?!?!

  210. Bryan Says:

    There still some more good CB’s left!

  211. Stanglassman Says:

    How is Cash is on the board? That guy was listed as a 2nd round pick on so many mocks.

  212. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Big Lincoln -lol

  213. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    69 of 78 FG
    198 of 198 PATs

  214. PRBucFan Says:

    Wth are we still talking about our kicker

    Get over it lol

  215. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Stop switching usernames, Brent.

  216. Stanglassman Says:

    I think we have enough CBs. Need FB S DL WR maybe TE

  217. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Also…try reading my other posts.

  218. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I think we should draft a new quarterback.

  219. unbelievable Says:

    lol, I see some people started drinking early today.

  220. Bryan Says:

    We absolutely need a few more HB’s!

  221. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Always 5 O’Clock somewhere bruh

  222. MadMax Says:

    Alright, we’re on the clock.

  223. PRBucFan Says:

    There goes your judon

  224. Luther Says:

    Dang!!! Matt Judon is another player I wanted…could be a sleeper

  225. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    On the clock!

  226. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Stephen Rivers, QB!

  227. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    (just kidding)

  228. Stanglassman Says:

    FB or S -Cash or Houston-Carson?

  229. MadMax Says:

    Hope its Boehringer…..i know they want all D but we still need a WR…..crap depth there and VJax’s last year.

  230. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Yes! Offensive Tackle!

  231. MadMax Says:

    Caleb Benenoch OT…hmmm

  232. MadMax Says:

    I can live with that.

  233. DallasBuc Says:

    Benenoch OT UCLA

  234. Stanglassman Says:

    T- UCLA

    Time to go to Youtube

  235. unbelievable Says:

    of course BSPN goes to commerical when it’s the Bucs pick. #f@ckespn

  236. PRBucFan Says:

    Alrighty I’m gonna stop guessing cause clearly I’m not on the same page with Licht since the first 3 pics lol.

  237. lurker Says:

    anyone know anything on this guy?

  238. Couch Fan Says:

    Protect the franchise. Welcome to Tampa Caleb.

  239. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    The Arizona state guard was still on the board, he should have been a 3rd or 4th round pick. Y pass him up?

  240. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Nigerian alpha male!!!

  241. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    He’s developmental probably, but I’m happy with the pick.

    It may not blow the doors off anyone’s bandwagon, but it’s another solid pick. And he might surprise us. Given the injury issues at right tackle, he’ll probably start half the season.

  242. LUVMYBUCS Says:



  243. MadMax Says:

    Big guy too…..could be our future RT. That would be another Licht homerun.

  244. unbelievable Says:

    LOL Bonzai, you think Gos and Dotson are both going down this year?

  245. DB55 Says:

    Missed Matt Judon by 2 picks. R

  246. MadMax Says:

    Team first LUV, team first 😉 lol

  247. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    What happened last year? The year before?

  248. PRBucFan Says:

    I’m not gonna say it’s solid or bad cause I have no idea who that is.

  249. Couch Fan Says:

    Charels Davis was trying to talk about our pick and they just cut him off lmao. No respect

  250. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Lol I hear U bruh

  251. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Couch Fan


  252. USFBUC Says:

    I like the pickup of Caleb

  253. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Or last year at least.

  254. lurker Says:

    joes’ got nothing up on this guy yet…lol

  255. unbelievable Says:

    BSPN literally just skipped over the Bucs pick.


  256. Arg Says:

    QBKilla stop your whining. With FG at a longer range a FG kicker was a good pickup.

  257. MadMax Says:

    We’re used to it Unbelievable. 🙂

  258. unbelievable Says:

    I know Max, I know…. still pisses me off

  259. The Buc Realist Says:

    Thats alright, I am listen to NFL Radio on Sirius/XM and they have went to commercial break everytime the Bucs are on the clock and picking!!!!

  260. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    He could be sleeper or the next Kadeem Edwards

  261. lurker Says:

    what is there to show of the buc’s pick? a name?

  262. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    ESPN just talked about him.

  263. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    LOL! When his dad signed him up for football, he thought it was soccer. lol

  264. lurker Says:

    on espn now!

  265. MadMax Says:

    The only time we’re covered is when we’re laughed at, whether it be a blowout, MRSA, or penalties. Thats the only time we get attention from the talking heads. eh, Im used to it and have grown to like it….kind of makes me a fan with a chip on my shoulder, dont know how to use that since it cant be on the field, but yeah.

  266. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    “Jason Licht doing a tremendous job.” – ESPN

  267. lurker Says:

    espn commenter also questioned the hargreaves pick…

  268. unbelievable Says:

    OMG they talked about the Bucs. I must be hallucinating lol.

    Pretty funny story right Bonzai? Football or futbol ha

  269. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Got sum love from ESPN……may have another Pamphile here…..we needed developing player at RT…..good job Jason!!!

  270. PRBucFan Says:

    Bonzai did you hear that on ESPN? Or did you read it

  271. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I’m on NFL Network..I don’t think they televised the buc pick either..

  272. MadMax Says:

    Na, they didnt Life, and barely mentioned him.

  273. unbelievable Says:

    We got a couple potential starters and a 2 developmental guys, so it’s not too bad.

    I just don’t feel as sure about some of these picks as I did the past 2 drafts. I have legit concerns about the size of Hargreaves, and Spence to be honest. But hey, WTH do I know?

  274. PRBucFan Says:

    I’m so pissed man. NFL network just blatantly skips over our stuff and when they do cover it they rush through it.

    I switch over to ESPN and I miss what they finally say. Damn it!

  275. unbelievable Says:

    Yea ESPN talked about us for a bit, it was about 10 min or so after we made the pick.

    Hoping we can grab the German WR in the 6th

  276. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Heard it, PR. On ESPN.

    The family moved into the country and the father signed him up for football…thinking it was European Futbal. When he saw them playing, he wondered why they were carrying the football and throwing it.


    Rest is history.

  277. Couch Fan Says:

    PR They went over it already. They rushed through it then completely cut it off to go to the Giants pick.

  278. MadMax Says:

    Embrace it PR…..I learned to about 4 years ago. We’re the red headed step child of the NFL….but thats ok, they wont see us coming once we get rolling again.

  279. PRBucFan Says:

    Thanks man

    Did they say anything about our picks though. Did they like them?

  280. unbelievable Says:

    @PR, Louis Riddick said he has concerns about VH3

  281. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Solid pick. Still want Houston-Carson or Boehringer. But this guy could eventually be our RT. Solid pick for round #5.

  282. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Caleb Benenoch left for the NFL sooner than his coaches felt he should have. He was just starting to develop into what they felt he was capable of. So he is certainly a developmental project.

    Licht knows OL…he must have seen something good in this kid.

  283. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Louis Riddick has been a Hargreaves hater this whole time. F him. 3 straight years all SEC 1st team. That says all you need to know about the kid.

  284. Stanglassman Says:

    Celeb looks to be our future RT. Watching his Junior tape on youtube is funny he just keeps pancaking everyone lined up across from him.

  285. unbelievable Says:

    @PR, Louis Riddick said:

    He has concerns about VH3 size, but likes his instincts.

    Spence is best pure rusher in draft if he stays clean.

    Roberto is good if continues consistency and improves strength.

    4th and 5th rounders are good developmental prospects.

  286. lurker Says:

    “Did they say anything about our picks though. Did they like them?”

    they questioned the hargreaves pick, but understood it. spence best pure pass rusher and will do well if stays out of trouble. aguayo will help offense and didn’t miss a kick under 40 yards. 2 developmental players. jason licht doing a good job

  287. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Louis Riddick said “at first” he had concerns about VH3, but upon reflection he felt it was a good pick.

    They said Jason Licht was doing a tremendous job in this draft. 3 starters and two strong developmentals so far.

  288. lurker Says:

    i think prbf gets the gist…lol

  289. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


  290. unbelievable Says:

    lol, sorry I got cut off the first time I was replying

  291. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Bucs might not have taken Judon anyway. We’ll never know. What Licht wants and what we want probably aren’t the same.

  292. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Well, barring a trade, I’m hopping off…relaxing. Later.

  293. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    I think at least one of the 6th round picks go to Bullringer or Michael Thomas (not the Ohio state one) Todd Monken had him in college

  294. MadMax Says:

    Yeah Michael Thomas would be a great pick for our WR core.

  295. Guzzie Says:

    6th round picks will be one of the big 3 FBs Vitale Gronk or Janovich the other will be WR Mike Thomas or Boerhinger

  296. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo says not to worry about ESPN because Pablo thinks we will now get great coverage from Telemundo”

  297. MadMax Says:

    he has some great skills…..

  298. MadMax Says:

    Guzzie, that would conclude a great end to this draft.

  299. MadMax Says:

    Nice….they’re highlighting Boehringer right now on nfl network

  300. MadMax Says:

    And they’re comparing him to Evans lol.

  301. MadMax Says:

    Needs some dog in him though, he seems wimpy….just sayin

  302. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  303. DB55 Says:

    Braxton Miller, Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins. That sounds pretty scary.

  304. Guzzie Says:

    You know what forget WR the talent left is my he same as UDFA but to get a talent like RB KEITH MARSHALL in the 6th would be a steal he’s a 1st round physical talent and has a couple of years to grow as a backup

  305. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, Houston rocked the draft with targets….I love it. Im a huge fan of O’Brien

  306. PRBucFan Says:

    I want MoBoe in a Bucs uni but he wont last lol

  307. PRBucFan Says:



  308. MadMax Says:

    Yeah I want him too…he just needs to be toughened up..those CB’s will be getting in his head…its 6th, take the chance Licht!

    Dang, Drango finally went, I forgot about him.

  309. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    In the 6th I hope we take Boehringer with the 1st pick. Then draft Treyvon Boykin to be our project QB. He can play and would give us a nice option as a #2 QB once MG8 is gone.

  310. PRBucFan Says:

    Stupid Mayock just sealed the deal for MoBoe to Minnie

  311. lurker Says:

    not many people left in here…

  312. MadMax Says:

    Well, now its done, Zimmer will take Boehringer before we pick (he wants to play for the vikes), Mayock pitched him on live tv, has Zimmer on the phone, we’ll have to trade up….not happening.

  313. PRBucFan Says:

    Damn Manock, now i like him even less

  314. PRBucFan Says:

    There goes that.

  340. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  341. MadMax Says:

    Oh Yeah, Victor Ochi, I remember him. That would be nice….had notes on that kid, he was balling.

  342. PRBucFan Says:

    He would have been an amazing weapon for JW

  343. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Now what?

  350. PRBucFan Says:

    You mean the GMs that passed on the kid for 6 round before the call?

    Ahahaha 😉

  351. lurker Says: showing jalen mills as bpa

  352. PRBucFan Says:


  353. PRBucFan Says:

    Watch them skip our coverage

  354. lurker Says:

    yep, you called it, huh?

  355. PRBucFan Says:

    Screw the NFL Network

  356. MadMax Says:

    Devonte Bond?

  357. lurker Says:

    espn showing “5 straight last-place finishes in nfc south” for us


  358. MadMax Says:

    ESPN is late at covering picks….I turned to them. Screw nfl network

  359. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    We took a slow a$$ lb.

  360. Stanglassman Says:

    OLB Bond

  361. lurker Says:

    wow devonte bond with a “grade” of 32 vs mills with a “grade” of 72

    whatever those grades are supposed to mean

  362. MadMax Says:

    uh oh….wonder why? uggg

  363. lurker Says:

    mills aint gettin drafted…

  364. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Starting to get nervous about Licht late round drafting

  365. unbelievable Says:

    I knew we were gonna f@ckin miss out on Mo Boehringer!

  366. Stanglassman Says:

    Bond is a blitzing Sam LB.

  367. unbelievable Says:

    I was on board with pretty much every player in Licht’s first 2 drafts. I would have like OL in the 3rd and Sims in the 4th back in 2014, but it is what it is.

    This year? I’m just sure. Time will tell but I think we might be missing Jon Robinson a lot.

  368. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Last pick needs to be baby gronk or a wr

  369. unbelievable Says:

    I’m just *NOT sure..

  370. PRBucFan Says:

    lmao espy goes to commercial right before covering our pick too…

    I’m about to turn this off for the day

  371. Guzzie Says:

    Bond isn’t even UDFA material he’s started 8 games in 2 years he’s a college backup why don’t Licht just give away his late round picks

  372. MadMax Says:

    Haha, yup, like always PR lol, you just have to laugh and smdh.

  373. MadMax Says:

    I* not you

  374. MadMax Says:

    And then they pick back up on covering Adams TE from SC…..skipped over only one player, “Bond” LOLOLOLOL…..Only us.

  375. DB55 Says:

    Bond looks like a key and Peele skit.

  376. MadMax Says:

    How about snagging us a WR Licht!!! WR Michael Thomas, Southern Miss!!

    Bond wont make it….at least draft a late rounder who can possibly make it!

  377. PRBucFan Says:

    Im fuming, tweeting both espn and nfl network in a rage

  378. SB with Jameis Says:

    Man Fellas………….I don’t know how to feel about this draft. I hope Licht is as good at drafting as I am at building stuff. Right now this doesn’t look so good. However Last yr’s was a ? that turned out Awesome

  379. MadMax Says:

    There goes Listenbee.

  380. MadMax Says:

    Antonio Brown went 195th, and look at him now…..Come LICHT!!!

  381. MadMax Says:

    Come on LICHT!!

  382. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    I think we just need to make it a habit to trade away all of out late Rd picks to move up in the 1st-4th. Cuz these picks suck. We can get these kind of guy as udfa. Still love our early picks, but we suck in late rounds.
    In Licht I Trust

  383. lurker Says:

    area scouts get the third day… it is all a crapshoot

  384. lurker Says:

    if mills not drafted, will bucs udfa him?

    lotsa defense left according to

  385. BUC_40 Says:

    Come on! Let’s get a FB! Vitale or Gronkowski!

  386. MadMax Says:

    Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas!

  387. lurker Says:

    we’re next

  388. MadMax Says:

    They need to hire some of us as their scouts….especially LUV.

  389. Bucs fan in NC Says:

    Now grab Jeremy Cash to top off our defensive haul. That would be a STEAL in the 6th!

  390. MadMax Says:

    Cant disagree BucsfanNC

  391. lurker Says:

    cash safety

    zettel defensive end

  392. lurker Says:

    pick submitted

    that was fast

  393. BUC_40 Says:

    Vitale! Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah!

  394. lurker Says:

  396. MadMax Says:

    FB Vitale…..awesome, a need!

  397. lurker Says:

    dan vitale fb

  398. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    The Bucs FINALLY drafted a fullback!

  399. lurker Says:

    done for the day except undrafted free agents

  400. MadMax Says:

    I hope he works out.

  401. lurker Says:

    that was a quick pick…they knew who they wanted

  402. SB with Jameis Says:–freakishly-athletic-dan-vitale-thrived-as–superback-153606589.html

  403. Stanglassman Says:

    He is more than just a great FB it’s like have a TE too. He can run the wheel route and catch over the middle too.

  404. lurker Says:

    san diego took a fb after us…ouch

  405. BamaBuc Says:

    Well that’s it folks. Only 1 I truly hate was the olb. Hope he proves me wrong. Otherwise I love the draft. Defense is stronger. Special teams stronger. Good developmental RT and bad@ss FB. Now hoping for Ochi to go undrafted get him in with a WR or 2. And let’s win some games. Go Bucs.

  406. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Northwestern’s “superback” is a one-of-a-kind position in college football, and Vitale’s (vuh-TAL-ee) intelligence, size, physicality, and receiving skills were made to fill that role. He’s consistently been a part of the passing game during his career (102 receptions for over 1,000 yards and seven scores his first three years), and when the Wildcats want to focus on the run, Vitale can open up holes for running backs from an H-back or in-line spot. He capped off his career with a second-team All-Big Ten effort in 2015, leading the team with 33 receptions for 355 yards and a career-high four scores.


    Utilized at versatile “superback” position during his time at Northwestern. Has shown ability to line up in slot, from behind center and all points in ­between. Runs better routes than many of the wide outs in this draft. Able to catch throws in traffic and take the hit. Shows no hesitation to stick his nose in the hole and into his intended target as a blocker. Generally solid radar as a blocker. Consistently lands his strikes inside the framework of defender. Team-oriented and highly coachable leader.

    Might be considered a too small for teams looking for a classic lead blocker. Thickly muscled and maxed out frame with little room for additional, functional mass. Missing length and overall mass to get into defender and control him throughout the rep. Not a true thumper as iso ­blocker. Slows feet at point of contact rather than accelerating through his intended target with force. Lacking desired athleticism outside of his frame to sustain as move blocker. Despite his plus route running, doesn’t have quickness out of breaks to gain separation as a receiver.

    Draft Projection Round 7 or priority free agent

    NFL Comparison James Casey

    Bottom Line
    Four-year starter who brings a great work ethic and leadership qualities to the table. Vitale’s tape shows a multi-­dimensional player who may fit in with the changing face of hybrid football, but he doesn’t really have an element of his game that he can hang his hat on as a true strength by NFL standards. Vitale can do many things for a team, but can he do them at a high level? Vitale’s special teams play could be instrumental in making a team’s roster.

  407. MadMax Says:

    At least espn covered him lol.

  408. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    He #40

  409. Bryan Says:

    Nice link SB. Guy is a stud.

  410. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Vitale…….wearing #40…….hmmmmmm!!!

  411. lurker Says:

    we drafted a fb last year and let him go…

    on to new england

    licht knows fullbacks.

  412. MadMax Says:

    Dude is strong (Vitale) benched more than most O linemen….this guy should turn into a great blocker for us.

  413. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    In the highlights he kind of looked like Alstott.

    He even wears #40.


  414. Stanglassman Says:

    They call Vitale the super-back. Jameis and buc fans are going to love this guy.

  415. PRBucFan Says:


  416. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We may have just drafted our 4th starter………VH3, Spence, Aguayo, Vitale

  417. PRBucFan Says:


  418. unbelievable Says:


    I feel the same way about this year.

    Last year however, I felt great after our draft to be honest. Same with the year before. I am very apprehensive about this year though.

  419. lurker Says:

    thanks for the link, sb

  420. SB with Jameis Says:

    Thanks Bryan ….this is one of the only late picks I am happy with right now.

  421. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    At least we know he wants to find a good one.

    I have a good feeling about this guy.

  422. MadMax Says:

    Surely our OC (Thomas’s old coach) will get Thomas on board as an UDFA if nobody drafts him. Another head scratcher for me if he doesnt get drafted.

  423. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    You know…Robinson isn’t the ONLY person that left. Think about it…

  424. DB55 Says:

    After watching highlights not sure if FB, TE, or WR1. Lol, Wth did I just watch? Idk but I liked it.

  425. BamaBuc Says:

    Great read SB

  426. BamaBuc Says:

    Going to be hell of a weapon for sure

  427. MadMax Says:

    They covered him on espn PR, I recorded it. I knew they were covering delayed picks. Maybe theres a reason Bond wasnt covered, I dont like that pick at all.

  428. Stanglassman Says:

    Good point MadMax. I’m sure that was taking into consideration. Hopefully Thomas won’t get drafted and is a UFA.

    ESPN & NFL network producer “Bucs pick next so it time to go for a commercial”

  429. unbelievable Says:

    I do love the Vitale pick though.

  430. Stanglassman Says:

    FB Vitale reminds me of both O’Leary and Alstott. Very excited about this pick.

    I think Bond is going to surprise some people too, he gets after the QB.

  431. BamaBuc Says:

    Licht says Ryan Kelly may end playing safety. Might have got our safety after all. Like all picks but the LB

  432. SB with Jameis Says:

    I just posted a lengthy pretty cool post that didn’t show so either I have had enough beers or filters are blocking me but I must say that WE……………THE BUCS FANS NEED TO BY HYPED UP FOR OUR NEW TEAM!!!!!!!
    Lets have a Winning Season!!!!!!
    I have faith
    Go Bucs

  433. BamaBuc Says:

    Would be a nice surprise stang. Where did you see highlights?

  434. SB with Jameis Says:

    BE not BY

  435. BamaBuc Says:

    Here here!!!

  436. lurker Says:

    koetter must be chomping at the bit to get a versatile small mountain to use on offense. i wonder if he had influence.

  437. Stanglassman Says:

    Youtube. Dan Vitale- The superback

  438. MadMax Says:

    And there goes Thomas 🙁 smdh!

  439. Stanglassman Says:

    Read the commits on Vatile they are comparing him to Aaron Herdandz minus the murder and Gronk.

  440. MadMax Says:

    Thomas over Bond…..thats my only grumble with this draft.

  441. BamaBuc Says:

    Thanks for link Stang

  442. Bryan Says:

    Stanglassman –

    Thanks for video. His body control is great. Does not look like a fullback though. Kind of reminds me of Mike Sellers of the Redskins.

  443. PRBucFan Says:

    Of course they covered him and I missed that damned one too lol


  444. PRBucFan Says:

    “Licht says Ryan Kelly may end playing safety. Might have got our safety after all. Like all picks but the LB.”

    Ryan Smith, and I told y’all 😀

  445. Guzzie Says:

    Vitale is probably faster than a worn out Dougernot fastest fullback in the draft 6’1 240 ran a 4.60 he’s a beast and has great hands runs routes like a WR very fluid athlete

  446. USFBUC Says:

    Just watched the highlights of Vitale and I think we got our WR, lol the guy only carried the ball once

  447. Stanglassman Says:

    It looks like the Bucs are converting Bond to a DE.

  448. Guzzie Says:

    WR to hope for to be an UDFA is Keyarris Garrett 6’3 220 played at Tulsa and has good speed low 4.5

  449. Bryan Says:


    “It looks like the Bucs are converting Bond to a DE.”

    Where is that?

  450. MadMax Says:

    Interesting. If he turns into a WR, good luck trying to bring down that beast. Even at FB as a blocker I was happy.

  451. Stanglassman Says:

    On the Buccaneers website. 5 things you need to know… article.

  452. Bryan Says:

    Maybe the Bucs are laying the groundwork to transition to the 3-4. Bond and Spence would be good 3-4 OLBs. Move Kwon and David to inside. Just a thought.

  453. feelthepewterpower Says:

    I see a little Gronk in him….he doesn’t bull people over like Alstott but Vitale is apparently very strong….quick, with solid hands. The Patriots were interested in him, I know….

  454. Bucco Bruce Says:

    Still am irritated and can’t believe we passed on Billings.

  455. SB with Jameis Says:

    I’m with you there Bucco

  456. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Did you guys see how many the bucs just signed within the hour that are from small colleges? I think they just picked up the 15th player..some with ridiculous numbers…

    For those that can’t grasp the trade for a kicker. We gave up our free 4th (where we still got VH3) to move up what, 12-14 spots? From an early 3rd to a late second pick….if he hits 2 game winners next years you will be happy. We played keep away simpletons.

  459. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I have tried posting the list won’t go through..

  460. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Well welcome aboard an additional 14 new Bucs!

  461. Stanglassman Says:

    Joe must be working on an artile on the UFA signings. I’m glad JBF started covering the signings it use to be just left for us to discuss on the commit board.

  462. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I agree Stan..the list just grew to like 17 signings and half a dozen invitees to camp…
