Bucs (Finally) Get A DL

April 27th, 2019

It took until the third day of the draft in a selection process that was top heavy with defensive linemen for the Bucs to draft a defensive lineman.

And that man is Iowa defensive end Anthony Nelson.

Feel free to make your own conclusion from Nelson’s video below.

Sounds like he is run-stuffer.

    Depth and rotation guy. Can everyone calm down now…

  4. Kalind Says:

    Backup 5tech. Yay.

    Shoulda been samia or powers or Bryce Love

  5. Kalind Says:

    Guy looks like he’s running in humus

  6. Miketb19 Says:

    Better version of Will Gholston because this guy can actually rush the passer a little bit 23 sacks in 3 seasons that’s not bad for 5 technique
    New 3 Man Front
    Left End: Will Gholston
    Nose Tackle: Vita Vea
    Right End: Anthony Nelson

    “He ranked second in the Big Ten and 17th in the nation in sacks during the 2018 season with 9.5 and had two sacks in the Pinstripe Bowl.”-Buccaneers official website. But yeah joe. He’s just a run stuffer. Smh

  8. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Will Gholston is better

  9. Jeff Says:

    Yawn…probably won’t make the roster.

  10. Totally Exonerated Says:

    He aint no Simeon Rice but hes serviceable. He always seemed to be in the right place at the right time by either causing or recovering a fumble. He’s long and caused a lot of tipped passes. I don’t recall much in the sacks department though.

    But if we were going to draft a DE from Iowa, we should have waited a year and got Epenesa. That guy is special.

  11. Unimpressed Says:

    Our O-Line is in bad shape, our run game is still unimproved, our receiving group is less potent minus Jackson and Humphries, Winston is going to get beat up because he’ll be forced to throw 30-40 passes a game after our young, inexperienced secondary is torched week after week…… ugh

    I like it. Lets trim that most expensive dline in the nfl.

  13. TexBuc Says:

    I will reserve judgement until season 2 on draft picks. 17 sacks in two seasons is pretty stout.

  14. SteveK Says:

    I’ll take it! Now grab a DT or OG next round. We need to get better up front. Win the line of scrimmage.

  15. JL Says:

    A bunch of crybabies.

  16. Lord Corn Says:

    I’ll take it. OL + DT + edge OLB+ RB next 4 picks with best available

  17. Lord Corn Says:

    3 picks *

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    They were double teaming him on some of those, and he still got the sacks.

    I think they might have made a good pick here.

  19. ROFOBuc Says:

    Agree with you JL. Totally agree!!

  20. Destinjohnny Says:

    Jason is in over his head.
    Having him at gm is like having an Sinatra cover band with someone who can’t sing

    You do realize these are not Licht’s picks right?

    Now ya gotta hate on BA and Bowles for these selections.
