Derwin James At One Buc Palace

April 4th, 2018

Mingling with Bucs.

For the two or so folks that for some reason are irked with fan favorite Chris Conte, this will make their day.

It seems the Bucs, as part of their 30 private invites, have thrown open the doors to One Buc Palace today to Florida State safety Derwin James. That’s the word from Rotoworld.com draftnik Josh Norris.

Now Joe has no idea how far up the depth chart James is with Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht. But given Licht’s history with safeties in the past year, he is likely looking to add one.

Consider Licht added three safeties to the roster within the past 13 months: J.J. Wilcox and T.J. Ward as free agents and drafted Justin Evans. Wilcox was traded to Pittsburgh when Licht signed Ward, who after getting weed-whacked while with the Bucs, is gone.

So if Licht wanted more safeties then, he likely wants more safeties now.

Joe is of the mind safety is maybe a No. 3 need, perhaps No. 4. Think about it: The Bucs lost 11 games last year not because of safety play but because they had no running game and couldn’t breathe on a quarterback.

Oh, and the quarterback was hurt.

Bigger fish to fry in Joe’s eyes than safety, though Joe wouldn’t light a candle for James the way he would if the Bucs drafted a doomed corner at No. 7.

    Evans showed a lot of upside last season, add in James being the enforcer on the back end and we could end up having one of the best safety tandems in the league…should we draft him.

  2. johnnybuc Says:

    safety is 100 percent a huge need if we are going to be a off zone coverage based defense we need safeties back there that our corners can trust , conte and tandy are not starting level safeties for a top 15 type defense … just because you don’t think safety is the #1 need witch is debatable , doesn’t mean that james isn’t by far the best player available at a position of need . if nelson & chubb are gone then the debate is james vs barkley and me personally think we need a safety more than rb just slightly , but that’s mostly because i believe with upgrades we’ve made on the oline plus getting rid of martin makes our rushing attack much better. i think we can still grab a stud in 2nd or 3rd round to be rb for us

  3. lokog Says:

    he will be our #7 pick

  4. Bucsfanman Says:

    We have bigger needs than safety. That’s all I’m going to say!

  5. Bird Says:

    Strong safety is 3rd biggest need

    Db, running back and then strong safety.

    He is a leader/-alpha male that when he speaks , teammates listen.

    Compared to Eric Berry so I would have no problem with bucs taking him. Just wish we could move back a few spots like 10 to get him.

  6. Joeypoppems Says:

    I think he will be higher on the Bucs draft board than fans think. It wouldnt shock me if he was right after Chubb, Nelson, and Barkley.

  7. Lord Cornelius Says:

    I love him as a trade down target along with multiple DTs / CBs / Davenport at DE and maybe Guice at RB.

    Not sure I love him at 7 yet.

  8. webster Says:

    @ bucsfan

    Luckily for us, licht does not draft for need. He drafts best player available. James is very high on licht’s board aaccording to another publication that covers the bucs and if nelson and chubb are gone, say hello to james. What sense does it make to draft davenport at 7 or if the bucs trade down to lets say 10 if you have james rated as the better player? Licht is on record this offseason saying he does not draft for need because if you do, in a lot of cases you are reaching for a player who most times do not pan out. So he lets his board dictate who he drafts.

  9. German Buc Says:

    What Lord C said!

  10. Wausa Says:

    Preach @johnnybuc

    One of the best posts I’ve ever seen on here.

  11. Joe Says:

    Licht is on record this offseason saying he does not draft for need because if you do

    Joe stood right next to Licht at the combine when he said for the record, “You draft best player available at a position of need.”

    Joe can promise you Licht is not drafting a quarterback, a left tackle, a wide receiver, a linebacker or a tight end at No. 7.

  12. JabooBuc Says:

    Joe, it’s not about the position. It’s about filling your roster with stud athletes. We didn’t need a TE last year but what did we do? We drafted a stud TE.

    Great players, regardless of position, can make others great and make up for shortfalls in other areas. He will instantly start and make our defensive backfield better. There is no corner as good at their position as James is at his.

  13. Joe Says:

    We didn’t need a TE last year but what did we do? We drafted a stud TE.

    And was that wise? You don’t think the Bucs could have used a defensive end or a running back at the same position they took O.J. Howard?

    Look, Joe loves Howard and he will be a stud. Joe was under the impression the Bucs were gunning for the playoffs last year, not trying to build for the next coach.

  14. Not there yet Says:

    Thinking the bucs could make the playoffs with Chris Conte at safety is a joke

  15. Ptwalk Says:

    I disagree that we didn’t need a TE, Koetter wanted to replace ASJ so he could run 2 TE sets. They were blessed with a prospect better than ASJ. That being said it was highest rated player at a PON.

  16. Eric Says:

    “best player available” has always been utter nonsense.

    “best player available to meet the needs of our current team” is what everyone has always done, and what everyone’s draft board represents.

  17. webster Says:

    @ joe

    The bucs do not have a qb rated higher than james or chubb etc. The bucs did not need a wide reciever last year but we picked godwin in the 3rd. We did not need a linebacker but drafted beckwith. All those players proved to be vital last year and seem to be even more valuable moving forward. As i have stated many times, u am glad you are not the gm. You are the type to bang the drum to draft for need but as soon as that need pick ie defensive end does not work out, you would be slamming the gm for missing on the stud safety that went 3 picks later “for no good reason.” And licht did say if you draft for need you end up reaching which most times the player does not work out. Im sorry if you missed that while having a beer with rachel watson

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    My prediction is that either there will be 4 QBs selected with the top 6 picks or we will have a trading partner at 7.
    If there are 4 QBs picked….we will have a choice of Barkley, Chubb or Nelson and we ABSOLUTELY must take one of them….
    They are all positions of need…..sure S is a need….but not as much as RB or DE…..
    The choice of Nelson vs CB or S will show us if Licht really knows what he’s doing……

  19. Bucsfanman Says:

    @webster- I agree, but, is James a “transcendent” player? Enough for us to grab him at #7? I mean, certainly, you take a good look if the “top 3” aren’t available.
    If I were to draft a safety at #7, I would expect them to be Troy, Ed, or Eric right out of the box. IMO we hear more about him because he’s FSU and not because he’s stood out head and shoulders over every other player in college football. I’m not saying he’s a bad football player, I’m just saying that he would not be on my “must have” list. Not for our first pick, anyways!

  20. Joe Says:

    And licht did say if you draft for need you end up reaching which most times the player does not

    Joe was standing two feet from Licht when he said, again, “You draft for best player available at a position of need.” You, sir, were not in the room. Joe knows each of the six people that were there. It’s not the first time Licht said that.

    Again, best player available is nonsense. The Bucs are not drafting a quarterback, left tackle, linebacker, wide receiver or tight end at No. 7. If you believe that, Joe has swampland in Arizona to sell you.

    The best available player crowd are the same types who would pass over Dan Marino for Gabe Rivera.

  21. webster Says:

    Another example of drafting best player available. I bet you felt the bucs biggest need was running back because you were willing to trade 3 picks just to move up in the first round for a running back that ultimately was picked in the 2nd round. Again, i am so glad you are not the gm. The bucs had a 3rd round grade on kareem hunt and was prepared to pick him but when it was their turn to pick….what do you know? Chris godwin who they had a 2nd round grade on was still on the board. Who did they pick? You guessed it…best player available. Its really not that hard.

  22. AlteredEgo Says:

    I’d have no problem if he is the Bucs pick @ 7…then I can turn off the TV and sleep easy

  23. webster Says:

    @ bucsfan

    I am not sure what you are talking about. 95% of the mock drafts out there has james as a top 10 pick. That is not because he is an fsu player. Btw..he is being compared to eric berry/kam chancellor. I would say that is worthy of a top 7 pick. If you are telling me my defense can have its on version of the earl thomas/chancellor combo???? Where do I sign up?

  24. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “Joe is of the mind safety is maybe a No. 3 need, perhaps No. 4.”

    Exactly the point I made yesterday. A couple won’t agree though.

  25. BucFanFromOhio Says:

    @webster

    Where did you get a copy of last years draft board? Not trying to be a smart @ss, I would just like to see it as well since you seem to know where the players were ranked.

  26. OneBuc55 Says:

    James won’t make it out of the top 10…if we pass the 49ers will pounce right on him…

    If Barkley, Chubb, and Nelson are gone James is the next best player available imo…

  27. SteveK Says:

    I am weary of drafting a SS at 7. Scary when this team needs pass rush/trench players/ and outside CB help.

  28. rrsrq Says:

    Some safeties have the ability to be a playmaker and change the entire attitude of the defense – look no further than our own John Lynch, He made sure the back end was strong and while the d-linemen would hunt he would either cover the backside or come up keep it in front of you, then there are the Kam Chancellor, Sean Taylor, Eric Berry types, that are so athletic, talented and intelligent, they change the game and defensive attitude that’s D. James (the new and younger “Mr. Beasting”.

  29. 813bucboi Says:

    LC

    I agree

    #NOEXCUSESIN2018!!!!!!….GO BUCS!!!!

  30. BigBucFan11 Says:

    Rather have Fitzpatrick.

  31. SCBucsFan Says:

    BBF there seems to be no love for Fitzpatrick on this board

  32. Bucsfanman Says:

    @webster- It’s just my opinion. I’m an ACC guy (VT converted from FSU) so I watch quite a bit. James barely stood out on a horrific FSU defense. Maybe it was because of the lack of pressure from the d-line or maybe injuries. Now, you draft and insert James on another horrific defense at #7, what will be the return on investment?
    I could be wrong, again it is merely opinion. I don’t like any safeties at #7 but if given the choice, I’d take Fitzpatrick. Just a matter of preference, he’s more versatile and played better competition.

  33. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    webster Says:
    The bucs did not need a wide reciever last year but we picked godwin in the 3rd.
    Yes we did. Jackson is a temporary signing. He’ll be gone by next year. So we needed a replacement for when that happens, and you do not wait until last moment when you have a choice.

    We did not need a linebacker but drafted beckwith.
    Again…yes we did. We had Kwon and David, but we needed to get better behind them. We also needed depth…which is something most here forget about.

    But even so, you are not talking about first round.

  34. NOSBOS Says:

    Not only that Joe but then turn around and give the other “ud” TE 40mill. Effectively making what many believe will be a “future stud 1st round drafted TE” a backup. I mean who does that??? And save the whole two TE set malarkey. Cookie koetter does emplement that very often.

  35. darin Says:

    Bird
    If you dont think DE is one of the top 3 needs still you need checked. No way this team is going anywhere without a pass rush. Its not here yet. Thats why you cant waste picks on a DB in mike smiths d. He will not adjust. He will cover the same all year and pray the pass rush gets there. Licht wont be fooled again.

  36. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    JabooBuc Says
    “We didn’t need a TE last year…”

    That’s debatable. Brate was going to be a RFA this year. Having a viable replacement put the Bucs in a position of power.

    Also, you are com-pletely wrong in stating we didn’t need one, because Koetter’s offense requires two starting TEs.

  37. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    NOSBOS Says
    “…save the whole two TE set malarkey. Cookie koetter does emplement that very often.”

    That’s because he did not have the TEs to do it with until last year, and last year, the fact that OJ was a rookie and still learning the system, along with Winston being injured…that lessened the opportunities to implement it.

  38. Stravenite Says:

    Why is it that folks on here prioritise FSU players before anywhere else, guaranteed issue with safeties this high and cb’s similiar, get more d-line help with VV and take the pressure off
    the back end,build from the trenches !!!

  39. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Not there yet Says
    “Thinking the bucs could make the playoffs with Chris Conte at safety is a joke”

    It can be done. With a stellar pass rush and good CBs, Conte can play well enough for the playoffs.

    You probably will not agree because you want us to take a safety (and we might later in the draft).

  40. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @Stravenite

    Personally, I never look at what school players attend. I look at everything else but that.

  41. BucTrooper Says:

    We once took a safety in the top 10.

    Never again.

  42. Greg Says:

    He’s #2 on my wish list behind Nelson

  43. DBS Says:

    Just another FSU project. All the TV stars had Jameis rated ready to go and he has been a project. Can anybody say OHNO. Best kicker. These players do not take you to the Super Bowl just because TV personalities say they will. They are all projects until they show what they can do in the NFL not college.

  44. Pickgrin Says:

    If Chubb, Nelson and Barkley are off the board with no good trade down offers – Derwin James will be the pick. Book It!

    James is a great fit for this team – position wise, talent wise and also for his strong leadership skills and Alpha personality.

    Safety is not an ideal position to be using a #7 overall pick on – but SS is a “need” and James is the 4th most talented (non QB) player in this draft – so you gotta go BPA as long as there is relative need.

    James is more likely than not to have an Eric Berry/John Lynch type of presence and impact as an NFL player. So Yea – we could probably use some of that….

  45. Jjones Says:

    No problem with taking James @7 as long as there’s a plan to trade back into the first or recoup our 3rd somehow.

  46. Dewey Selmon Says:

    We did need a TE last year, Sheenan from Chi could of been a Buc and Auclair would of been a 6th/7th rd pick. I also believe James will be the pick if the big 3 are gone, RB in rd 2, and a CB in rd 3 if we move up or someone will drop to us on day 3.

  47. webster Says:

    @ bucsfan

    Another publication spoke on the kareem hunt/chris godwin draft due to his interview with jason licht. Out of respect for joe, i do not say the other publication but you could probably take a wild guest. This same publication 2 years ago said that the bucs had a second round grade on kwon and was very suprised to see him there still in the 4th. Remember the bucs did not have a 3rd round pick because they traded it to move back up into the second to draft marpet

  48. webster Says:

    @ dbs

    I am sorry you are new to football so you thought most nfl ready meant finish product. I would take a “project” that can throw for 4000 yards his 1st 2 years in the league. It would have been three straight had he not missed the equivalent of four games. Manning was still throwing 23 ints in his 4th year and 19 in his 5th. Jameis has never thrown 19 ints. But keep being a clueless hater. It looks good on you

  49. webster Says:

    @ bucsfan

    That same publication im talking about states that james is rated higher than fitzpatrick on the bucs board. How true that is, i do not know. This is smokescreen season and their source could be sending smoke

  50. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I’m basically with NFLNut….Chubb…Saquan…Nelson or trade down.

    If we got James or especially Vita Vea I would trust Licht enough to give them a chance before griping….that’s about it for me…5 possibles or trade down.

  51. webster Says:

    @ joe

    I cant speak on the interview licht did with you and 5 others. Im talking about an interview i saw this offseason where he made that comment about reaching for need. If i find it, i will post the link if that is ok

  52. Pickgrin Says:

    Webster – actually Licht said in an interview early last year with that other publication – that Kwon was the 28th best player on the Bucs board in 2015. A 1st rd grade. We moved up in the 4th to select Alexander with the 124th pick. A minor “bargain” – LOL

    We got 4 1st rd picks that year because Winston, D. Smith, Marpet and Kwon ALL carried 1st rd grades as the Buccaneers rated them. That’s some good evaluatin’

  53. Jjones Says:

    Comparing the Karate Kid swan kicking Aguyoa to Derwin James, not quite.

  54. lambchop Says:

    All I know is, I feel that Licht will get back into the 3rd Rd some how.

  55. Bucsfanman Says:

    @webster- There’s probably more familiarity there. And, yea, who knows? Last year we drafted OJ Howard. Nobody saw that coming.
    The position needs an upgrade, for sure. Hopefully the draft is made easy for us.

  56. BucFanFromOhio Says:

    @webster

    Thanks for the info. I was curious if they were high on any other RB in the draft last year (ie Kamara) and where they may have ranked them.

  57. DBS Says:

    webster

    Right. 4 years later he is still a project. Keep throwing all the useless stats out you want. His interceptions are worse and when he got one of the best WR’s he can’t hit with the long ball you want to blame the WR. But after a season of yelling weapons weapons for Winston he got them and continues to put up 17 to 20 points a game. So please continue to tell me how great he is and the TV people were right about how good he was. 4000 yards is useless when you are losing.

  58. Big Country Says:

    Off rip, I am certain that local players don’t count against our 30 players visits?

    Joe, have any idea why Derwin James took down video of his visit at One Buc today?

  60. webster Says:

    @ pick

    Exactly and that is why im ok with this gm. All four players were day one starters. I know donavan smith takes a beating by some fans but he has performed better than some of the 1st round tackles.

    @ bucfan

    Oj howard was like top 5 on their board. Did you read about the story of licht and koetter at the senior bowl practice? 5-10 minutes into practice koetter gets up, says i have seen enough, i see who i want and walked off. That player was oj

    @fromohio

    Like joe, I hunt the web for interesting nuggets about the bucs. You would be suprised what you learn. One of my favorite was the article after winston was drafted. The year prior licht receives a text from his brother in law during the draft asking which qb manziel, bridgewater, carr….licht responded winston

  61. webster Says:

    @ dbs

    How is his interceptions worse? Manning threw 28 ints as a rookie. He too was a nfl ready qb. Again, nfl ready does not mean finished product. Try to keep up or enroll in the remedial class where they teach you what a football tee is.

  62. Bird Says:

    Darin

    They are paying almost 20 mil for two defensive ends this year Unless Chubb drops I would seriously doubt they will draft DE with first two picks.

    Are jpp and curry long term .. of course not…sure they need to continue to go after defensive ends moving forward. They have drafted only one in last 3 or 4 years.

    I Don’t need to be checked …it’s funny I’ve seen others comment on same 3 biggest holes but call me out if you want. People on here have to point out how smart and right they always are. Who cares bruh

  66. JabooBuc Says:

    Joe,

    yes it was wise to take Howard. You generally win with superior talent. Howard, combined with Brate, Evans, Jackson, and now Godwin make this team difficult to contend with.

    We gained a prize with JPP and have improved our DLine. The LB’s are in great shape. Now, with Grimes, JH3 at Nickel and Evans and James at Safety, you have the makings of a pretty good secondary.

    I agree we need RB help and the 2nd round sounds like a good place to make that happen.

  67. JabooBuc Says:

    DBS- yeah, we don’t want any of those FSU projects like Brooks, Dunn or Winston. That would be crazy.

    James was only a 5 star recruit from nearby Haines City and started at FSU from day 1. Jalen Ramsey (another project?) says he’s an instant NFL star and any team that passes on him will be sorry.

    But I’m sure you know better…

  68. DBS Says:

    @webster
    Don’t need classes . And don’t care about Manning. 2016 Jameis int’s got worse. Now his fumbling is worse. If you don’t like my attitude is players are a project that is your problem. TV makes it like they will transition right to the NFL and take off. Most of them do not. If you have more knowledge than me great for you. I played JR High and High School. Never good enough for college.

  69. Jason Mclaurin Says:

    Derwin James is going to be the pick. That’s why they are not trading out the top 10 but looking to trade back into the first round by trading the second round pick. Licht is definitely shopping the second round pick to move back in the first round too and it’s been said on all buccaneers media sites [email protected] JBF. They feel they have the range to move back up to third round with that pick they received from the Giants to swoop up Kerryon Johnson whose name has popped up as well. They are done with offensive and defensive line though. They are not drafting any lineman this year unless they feel they can trade back out the top 10 and still get James which is highly possible. I think the 49ers will get a linebacker again to strengthen their front seven and maybe the Raiders do the same thing. I see the Bears drafing Vea or maybe the 49ers, but Fitzpatrick will come off the board before James if we trade back or we wind up getting Fitzpatrick. If we trade out with the Bills the Cardinals will certainly be moving up as well and may trade with the Bears. Roquan Smith will go to either the Raiders or 49ers and the Dolphins are going after Ridley. James will be there if we trade out the top 10 but I don’t think they should risk it though. Just draft James at 7 and trade up to draft either Hughes or Hernandez late in the first. Trade back into the third round and draft Kerryon Johnson use whats left with the 6th round pick and draft Himes to be the return man and all needs are complete.

  70. Sunny Says:

    Oj replaced Luke stocker , it was a great pick , WOuld have been a awesome draft if we moved up for cook in round 2 , rather have cook than J Evans

    @ dbs

    In 2016 his ints got worse? You neglected that his tds got better. He threw 6 more tds and 3 more ints. Hey, thats a 2:1 ratio. You take that. So yea you need classes. Again, when they say pro ready, it does not mean finished product. You cant be made at the player because you did not know what pro ready meant smdh.

  75. SOEbuc Says:

    There’s gonna be wheeling and dealing of QB hungry teams for picks 1-7. When Licht said at the combine that Sweezy was still hurt, he looked like he was about to cry. I thought JR might of died in a car crash or something and no one told us about it. I think Nelson is a lock for the Bucs if they stay at seven. And for the entire 99.9% of Bucs fans that want a RB in the second, Nelson makes a whole lot more sense in the first than James. Come on Jason. Do your thing and find us a boss ass UDFA safety outta Harvard or Hogwarts or somewhere.

  76. Eric Says:

    Sorry but heck no, 1 year wonder with knee injury history. Last year was average so likely was a product of good talent surrounding him not that he was a dominate player. Dominant players dont drop off after one season they continue to get better. Besides that if Im taking a safety Im grabbing the general consensus #1 safety. Its so predictable to see who is wanting him so bad. Same people who make all the excuses for Jameis Winstons many shortcomings and always assigning blame to everyone else except the one throwing the inaccurate footballs. Its almost like your all brainwashed into thinking anything FSU is better than gold. If big three are gone and no trade down take Vea and solidify our weakness. Tandy played good when our line got significant pressure or did you all think that was a coincidence. A great d line makes a great secondary, its not that hard to understand people!

  77. Eric Says:

    He will be a penalty machine with the new rule changes. His game is hitting and they are trying to transform the game to emphasize tackling not hitting for safety reasons.
    Derwin James=Dashon Goldson

  78. BushidoEvans Says:

    “And was that wise? You don’t think the Bucs could have used a defensive end or a running back at the same position they took O.J. Howard?”

    Joe which DE or RB was picked between the Bucs’ 1st and 2nd round pick that moved any needle for the team that picked him? I can’t recall one, maybe TJ Watt?

  79. BushidoEvans Says:

    Now shame on them for not evaluating guys that were picked later than that who had impact, but most of the other teams made the same mistake. *cough cough* Alvin Kamara *cough cough* Kareem Hunt.

  80. JabooBuc Says:

    Eric, you clearly have no idea what you are talking about. He is an all around Strong Safety. He can bring the wood but is also great in coverage. He can blitz off the edge and be supportive against the run.

    He did hurt his knee but that is the only thing of question in his game. He didn’t have a down year last year. The entire team did. They were riddled with injuries. Not a one year wonder.

    Football Outsiders on Chris Conte PRIOR to the disaster that was last season…

    Strong Safety: Our 2016 Keep Choppin’ Wood lifetime achievement award goes to Buccaneers safety Chris Conte, whose team immediately saw a substantial improvement in its defensive play when they benched him for Keith Tandy in the middle of the season. Even Conte’s good plays often had their downsides, as his pick-six against the Chicago Bears resulted in him splitting his coach’s head open, but that was nothing compared to the headaches he caused when deployed in deep coverage. Tampa Bay’s defensive DVOA when Conte started averaged out to -4.1%, which is massively boosted by games against the Blaine Gabbert 49ers and the can’t-block won’t-block Seahawks. Meanwhile, in the five games after he was benched, they averaged -11.9%. It’s rare for one safety to make that big a difference, but Chris Conte is no ordinary safety. Kind of like Earl Thomas, only in reverse.

    I like James but his knee is a deal breaker for me. Matter of fact I’ll put a 2nd round grade on him Not at 7.

    I still believe we should go Davenport some way some how when u have had aquire Curry and JPP. Get a rookie in there

    Joe,
    Derwin James had 3 videos of him here in Tampa, all on his Instagram story this morning. The first was him driving on the highway with the location marked in Tampa, the second was him walking up to One Buc (you saw a huge Bucs logo on the ground) and he also had a location tag that said Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 3rd video was him in the Bucs weight room with the flag in it. Hours after posted, they were taken down by him.

    Hey Webster:

    when they say pro ready, it does not mean finished product?
