“Their Pitch In Their Voice Rises”

Jason Licht talks scouting

Jason Licht does not draft players in a vacuum. His scouting staff is critical and has his greatest trust.

Heck, before the draft, Licht said every last guy on his staff gets access to the team draft board. Licht trusts all of them with that vital intelligence.

Speaking yesterday on PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, Joe’s favorite morning show, Licht touched on how the love for kicker Roberto Aguayo was remarkable among him and his staff.

“I made a visit to Florida State along with several other schools this year, like we always do, but came back and my wife said, she always asks, ‘Who did you like?’ And I said, ‘I like this Aguayo guy. This kicker,’ Licht said. “And she was shocked. Because I’d never talked about a kicker before.

“Scouts, their pitch in their voice rises when they talked about him all year. And I’ve never seen that happen before. He’s the best kicker I’ve ever [scouted] coming out of college.”

So those loud voices you heard from One Buc Palace this winter, they had nothing to do with Dirk Koetter and his new staff watching film of the 2015 Bucs defend slant passes.

Licht went on to say special teams was a paramount upgraded needed for Tampa Bay, and why not shore it up with the best damn kicker he’s ever seen.

    “But there were so many stud back up DEs available that we just cant afford the best college kicker in football history. Blah, blah, blah.”

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo is excted about Aguayo…..but Palblo doesn’t speak in a high-pitched voice about him. Pablo is a manly-man and has a low-pitched voice always.
    Pablo knows Hason has gigante cajones and always speaks low-pitched like Pablo.”

    If you you get possibly, the best cover corner in the draft, the best pure edge rusher, the best kicker, the biggest surprise steal (R. Smith) and the most versatile H-back/FB, and they all produce, Bucs in good shape for a while with the expected improvements of last years players and coaches. Each Buc should be out there with something to prove and have a chip on their shoulder

    I think licht is confused. The high pitched sounds are from the scouts nut punching each other while watching clips of Lovie’s defense.

    Aguayo is going to be great. I am more concerned about the VH3 pick. I will be pulling for the kid but he was not on my list of favorites.

    To the haters, please tell me which second or 3rd rd LB or DE has ever accounted for at least 100 points for their team in their career let alone in a single season…

  6. Mojiska Says:

    Name a 1at round defensive guy that does that flmike??? Should we have drafted him in the first over Hargreaves? Your argument insinuate s that notion… I like the kicker, but use better arguments to justify it, not the fact that defensive guys score less points.

    Couch potatoes and armchair quarterbacks unite. We know-it-alls are right, so end of discussion!

    That would have to be one that was researched by watching every game of every year, and still be subjective. A de or lb that makes a play on 3rd down to hold them to 3 instead of 6 and so on so on. Im sure its happened but the other 10 also play a roll. We get your point but the games are won and lost at the line of scrimmage. Period. Even on field goals. Many ways to look at it. I like the aguayo pick but absolutely not giving up the 4th. Didnt think it was necessary. Just because we arent the gm doesnt mean would cant have an opinion on the matter. We are all buc fans and hope aguayo never misses. Just gona hurt when i see the guys i would have taken in round 3 and 4 tearin it up. Go bucs
