    What a refreshingly good podcast!

    Really appreciate the reasoned draft assessment.

    Thank you! I’ve tired of all the negativity within this site.

    Good job!

    OK all of you guys who know something more, I have a question. Who is reputed to be or even known to be the better run blocker between Watford and Cappa?

    This is important for Barber, ROJO and anyone else that might be brought in as a running back. I heard a comment from BA to the effect that Dotson is a great pass blocker but weak as a run blocker.

    Maybe, BA is high on Barber precisely because he was able to get a few extra yards in spite of poor blocking on the right side. I think we know that Marpet is noted for his run blocking contributions as a guard on either side.

    Maybe this is why OL was not addressed in the draft this year. Maybe, the new regime saw the deficiencies among the DBs as the higher priorities as a result. Maybe, BA and staff can fix the OL well enough for this year and look for Dotson’s replacement during our next off season.

    What do you think?
    Go9 Bucs!!!!!!!

    P.S. I did see where BA( and Arizona) drafted Watford initially so I guess he knew what he was getting.

    I also found this online. “2013 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about EARL WATFORD: James Madison, 6036 300 5.06. Three-year starter. A zone blocking guard who is athletic. Can run on pulls and is effective blocking on the perimeter. Drives legs on contact and gets movement in the run game. Bends his knees and plays in a football leverage position. Uses his long arms to his advantage in pass protection. Flashes a quick punch to control opponent”
