    Bucs are not smart enough to pull a trade down and still fill needs…. glazers and company just need to follow kiss… keep it simple stupid

  2. RawDog Says:

    Yes, if Williams, Bosa, & Allen are gone. If not, would be okay trading back a few & still getting Oliver/Sweat/White/Bush.

  3. Pete I Says:

    Depends on who is sitting at 5 AND how far back we slide.

  4. D-Rome Says:

    Why should we trust Backstabbin’ Jason Licht to do the right thing with more picks? Don’t any of you remember Roberto Aguayo?

  5. Gettinthebucs Says:

    No! Take the best player available!

  6. SCBucsFan Says:

    Anyone who answers anything but not sure in an idiot. It depends on who is available as well as what is offered for the pick. As with any question you need enough information to make a informed decision, not that any of that matters to the critical thinkers in here.

  7. Etzel Says:

    I’ve always been a believer in accumulating the most picks possible… but that was until we drafted a kicker in the 2nd round.

    That being said, if Bosa/Allen/Q. Williams are all gone, I would be okay with it.

  8. DBS Says:

    Trade it. To many holes to fill so more picks are better. And so far BA is calling the shots? Let’s find out. We are not going to the Super Bowl this year anyway.

  9. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Depends on who is there so I put I don’t know.

  10. Bucsfanman Says:

    SCBucs- Very valid point. I voted “yes” on the assumption that the ‘big 3’ will be gone at #5. That theory is entirely moot if one drops to us.
    Additionally, I’m not exactly brimming with trust that our GM is capable of making a good decision.
    This team has a LOT of needs, a LOT! Extra picks would certainly help.

  11. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I’m invoking the Belicheck rule

    trade down and accumulate ..find value

    Oh wait …I forgot our main reason why every season we race to the bottom.
    It’s for the top pick in the draft. For that shot in the dark. How’s that been working out for us the last 30 years?

  12. Pete Mitchell Says:

    If they could move their number 5 pick and Gerald McCoy and wind up with two first rounders and the #37th pick they cools try to fill a lot of holes on defense.

  13. Joe Says:

    I’m invoking the Belicheck rule

    trade down and accumulate ..find value

    One problem with the “Belicheck [sic] rule.” Belicheat doesn’t work for (or pick for) the Bucs.

  14. SCBucsFan Says:

    Bucsfanman I agree. Extra picks would be sweet and I trust Licht would get a good deal – he has in the past.

  15. Bucnjim Says:

    Hard to tell if the top 5 are that good or just so over hyped by the media. Drafts are crap shoots and if you just concentrate on the most popular names you get screwed.

  16. Arian Nation Says:

    Trade back like Rawdog said, still get Oliver/Sweat/White/Bush. then grab Henderson (RB) and Lindstrom (RG) in the 2nd.

    Trayvon Mullen, Clemson, may be the best CB in the draft. He might be available in the 2nd or 3rd.

  17. ATrain Says:

    Trade down is only is Q is not there

  18. ATrain Says:

    Man Joe when do I get out of JBF purgatory??????

  19. Bucsdelight Says:

    The teams that do best in the NFL typically trade back and accumulate draft picks. NE does it all the time. There is a reason. More picks means more opportunity to hit on a player.

  20. Defense Rules Says:

    Pete I … B-I-N-G-O

  21. 813bucboi Says:

    pete & LC

    i agree…..

    it all depends on who’s there and where we trading down too…..


  22. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I answered yes….only because I am assuming that Joe is assuming Bosa, Williams & Allen are gone at 5……if one is there I would stay.

    The poll would be better if that prefaced the answer……

  23. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I put NOT SURE…because it depends on who falls to us.

    Say, what if a miracle happens and three teams trade up for players they want before us…and Nick Bosa falls to us? No way do we not take him.

    I was listening to Pewtercast and they brought up a great point…there are two, maybe three good MLBs in this draft, but plenty of edge rushers and DTs. Seems like the smart move is to go MLB…not that I have a preference.

    “Bucs are not smart enough to pull a trade down and still fill needs…”

    That’s complete bull…but I expect nothing more from you.

  25. Tut Says:

    Not sure… If no QB’s go top 4 then yes trade down…

  26. Tut Says:

    Williams is the best player in the draft. Bosa only has 1 year of game tape and he’s just riding his brothers coattails…

  27. tickrdr Says:

    I wanted to trade down when we had the #1 pick, but nooooooo.


  28. Anonymous Says:

    Wouldn’t mind trading down, but not at the risk of missing out on a talent like Oliver, Williams or Allen. Go Bucs.

  29. Evo Says:

    I don’t trust the guys making the picks. They’ve done squat with extra picks so far. I bet he only gets a 4th or 5th rounder for McCoy.

  30. Buccaneerscotty Says:

    Hate to say it but I don’t trust light ! Look who we got with the extra 2nd round picks last year ? I’ll pass

  31. Anonymous Says:

    I would be happy with Oliver at #5 and play him as 34DE.

    I am always with the trade down crowd.

  32. BrianBucs Says:

    It just really depends who may fall to them at 5. One trade in front of them could land a difference maker in their lap

  33. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’m not certain how anybody can answer this without I’m not sure.

    There are so many moving parts. Which players are available…who we really want…guessing how long they’ll be available and then how many trading partners emerge with what deals.

    As for Belichek I agree with Jean Lafitte about Belichek..and of course my favorite example the HOF GM perhaps the greatest of all time Bobby Beathard who pioneered the trade down strategy.

    I cannot agree with Joe’s saying that Belichek’s strategy will not work here because we don’t have Belichek. If Licht can’t find the proper players in ANY round why would we assume he will at #5.

    Licht has a decent record of draft picks if folks here would be honest. His rep will rest on how JW plays this year. If he doesn’t prove himself…I’m in the group who thinks he will…but if he fails Licht has failed. You simply cannot miss with that rare #1 pick of the entire draft. Tickdr would be right if that happens.

    This team has sooooooo many holes they have to move down for more picks.

  35. tmaxcon Says:


    hey o brilliant one please explain why you give owners of the worst winning percentage in sports and not a single meaningful win in nearly two decades a free pass and have so much confidence in their ability… that’s like giving Charles mason a pack of hippie chicks thinking all will be well.

    you live in another world dude simply another world… this franchise has been an embarrassment and you call me out for not buying into the BS for the 15th straight year…. please give your wife my condolences on your anniversary that poor woman must be a saint….

  36. Broodlaw Says:

    Depends on where you’re trading to, I’d say anything lower than 11 is bad and shouldn’t be taken, at least with the #11 pick you could still get one of the LBs or a D-lineman. I’d say trading with the Bills is ideal though that depends on them actually wanting someone that bad.
