  2. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Do NOT trade up. Get one of the top 4 OTs if they are there at 14. If not, consider trading down and look who’s there at that time.

  3. The Graham Tram Says:

    Ruggs, Edwards-Elaire, Tackle, Couple Kickers, Lets Go!

  4. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I’m calling it now……

    If the OT tackles are gone……

    1 Choice – Kinlaw

    2 Choice – Isaiah Simmons

    3 Choice – Jerry Jeudy

  5. Mark Says:

    Jameis to the Chargers because they pick 6

  6. DaBux Says:

    Please trade up. I have to get up at 4 a.m. on a travel day to Orlando.

  7. AwshBucs Says:

    I’m hoping for Becton at 14. But i’d also be tremendously happy with Either Kinlaw or Epenesa or a trade down to 20 or so and taking Jonathon Taylor.

    But, i’m also fully prepared for a wild card pick. I could easily see us picking a player Like Grant Delpit, Henry Ruggs, or Chaisson being picked.

    Mark wins the thread.

    Close it down.

  9. Cobraboy Says:

    @Mark: Jajajajajajaja…….

  10. Bradley Says:

    If not Simmons, trade back and end up with a RB and QB high.

    Seems like Ira is high on Simmons the same way “he” was on OJ

  11. Cobraboy Says:

    I keep fantasizing Simmons as the Bucs safety.

    But I suspect he and all four of the top OT’s will be gone.

  12. Allbuccedup Says:

    If the tackles are gone trade down. Kinlaw and Jeudy possible damaged goods buyer beware. Simmons definitely won’t be around he won’t get out of the top ten.


    The Bucs need to go
    1st RND – OT
    2nd- RB (Taylor)
    Let’s go BUCS, LETS TO GOOD IN THIS 2020 DRAFT !!


    If all tackles are gone, I’d say draft good RB early .

  15. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Mark, if you would of used that line 3 weeks ago it would of been a meme by now. You win the thread.

  16. DaBux Says:

    If we can’t get an OT, I agree, trade down a few, grab Chaisson from LSU and grab Cleveland from Boise State in the 3rd round. But if we can get Thomas or the monster from Iowa? Yeah, take them at 14.

  17. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Mechi Becton is a huge bust

    Stay stay far away”

    Kobe Faker

  18. Casual Observer Says:

    I just hope Licht’s pick doesn’t come out of left field. Most of the comments on this board have been pretty well thought out – and a consensus among them would be a good pick. That said, my favorite is Kinlaw or a top OT. If all those are gone, I would trade down. And pick an OT late in this round.

  19. El Buco Realisto Says:

    Trade ole stale biscuit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Tackleblockwin Says:

    My guess is we might trade back and still get our #1 choice at RB. All I know is this draft is going to be a lot of fun.

  21. Bucfan593 Says:

    Please do not trade up for a right tackle! Otherwise knock em dead!

  22. Stanglassman Says:

    NFL network is reporting teams are spooked by Kinlaw’s injury history. Who previously had a labrum repaired in one of his hips, as well as a past back injury and two knees that multiple teams have flagged as at risk of arthritis. “Wear and tear” is the term most used following Kinlaw’s combine MRIs.

  23. Wesley Says:

    Work that magic Bruce, lock Licht in his office.

  24. BucfaninMi Says:

    Trade the 14th and OJ to Detroit for #3 spot. Probably have to throw in another pick, late rounder they got for Gronk.

  25. Stanglassman Says:

    Bucky Brooks is predicting 8 OT in the first round. Wow. I haven’t seen more than 6 in any mocks. That’s not good for the Bucs if it’s the position they have targeted early. That’s unless they trade up or the run starts late.

  26. ©MadMax Says:

    Our #14, 4th, next years 3rd and OJ (since he wants out anyway) to Arizona for #8 for Simmons or Brown or Okudah (Simmons hopefully).

  27. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Dammmmmmmmn Mark! Goteeeem

  28. ©MadMax Says:

    AStan, we could still possibly land Bartch or Peart in the 3rd.

  29. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Anyone else thinking Friday or Saturday, Licht will draft a RT from a small school we have never even heard of?

  30. Stanglassman Says:

    MMax- I agree this OL class is pretty deep. Not as deep as the WR class but still good.

  31. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Bucs trading up for Okudah

  32. Adrnagy Says:

    NO tackle.

    Don’t trade up.

    Watch patriots snag Andy dalton and O.J. in trade.
    We get a pick and Edelman.

  33. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Can we PLEASE get our hands on one or two of those dolphins picks (14)!? WTF
    MAKE IT HAPPEN (WIN NOW). Use next years picks. 14 picks smh, thats nuts!

  34. DaBux Says:

    If we get Edelman for dirt, holy smokes. The city of Boston will burn from angry fans violating their stay at home orders.

  35. DaBux Says:

    BTW, after the draft, do not be shocked if we sign Jason Peters to a 1 year deal. Just like we did with one Roman Oben.

  36. Adrnagy Says:

    Patriots have sanu. N’keal Harry and just signed lee.

    Edelman will be trade to us.

  37. AwshBucs Says:

    ” I have literally been right on maybe 3% of my predictions at best honestly I don’t know why i bother trying. It hurts a little more every time i’m wrong mom.”

    – Kobe Faker

    You heard it here right from the source guys.

  38. DaBux Says:

    3% ???????

    That rivals Licht’s hits on PKs.

  39. geno711 Says:

    Edelman unfollowed Brady on Instagram after Gronk was traded to us.
    Does not appear an Edelman trade will happen.

  40. Pa Privateer Says:

    Go Bucs

    Trade down once or even twice

  41. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Only way they could step in it would be to trade up!

  42. Bucamania Says:

    Plan A: Take one of the Top 4 OTs
    Plan B: Trade down to draft Josh Jones or Austin Jackson
    Plan C: Stay at 14 and draft Simmons, top WR, or best RB

  43. Ata Says:

    Good job by Licht and Coaches. We can go any number of ways and be satisfied.
    May I add my humble hopes for day 1

    1A)Tua at 14
    1B)Trade up for Simmons, Okudah or CJ

    Whatever happens, what an offseason so far
    Go Bucs

    lol wut? That’s way too much to give up for a single unproven player.

  45. unbelievable Says:

    wow Joe guess I can’t say anything anymore, huh?

    I keep fantasizing Simmons as the Bucs safety.

    But I suspect he and all four of the top OT’s will be gone.

    He won’t play safety at all in the NFL. Situational pass rusher, or 4/3 weakside LB. That’s all he can play at the NFL. Hips aren’t good enough for an NFL safety.

  47. JimmyJack Says:

    Hey I know it’s a dream but I’m on the Simmons train until he gets picked. And if he starts dropping out of the Top 5 I might start to get excited.

    That’s a guy you trade up for.

    Otherwise I’m cool staying at 14 and really taking anybody but WR.

  48. pm permanently moderated Says:


    next best tackle


    Trade Down




    Jump off the skyway

    WR or LB, or even worse TE or Kicker. All positions that will not impact 2020 at all

    In that order

  49. unbelievable Says:

    Okay guess I’ll come back in another month or so.

    Sorry you got so offended by me saying Dean was a good CB last year. Its your traffic, not mine.

  50. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    On the JimmyJack train – SIMMONS!

  51. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    GOAT Brady has Pro-Bowl weapons, quick-release, and can read D’s. Draft Simmons to shut down opposing Offenses, and keep the Bucs Offense on the field to score.

  52. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

  57. ©MadMax Says:

    LUV!!!!!!!!!!!!! AH!!!!! Where you been bro?

  58. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    there are sooooooo many good (#3) receivers in this draft, using the first pick on one would be ludicrous. A really asinine move. A complete waste of a pick that should be used on a potentially day 1 starting player. IF one of the top RT’s isn’t there, trade back, get more picks, and get Isaiah Wilson.

    Whatz good bredren!!

    Man business has been crazy plus — finishing the build on the new crib has took a lot out of me brotha.

    How you been man?

  62. Phx Buc Fan Says:

    It’s been too long my friends! Let’s go Bucs!

  63. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Geez, that guy is a DOWNER

  64. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I have YET to see him wearing a mask

  65. Will Says:

    12mins in and still all this talk about as Joe say “the sickness” this is supposed to take our minds off of this.

  66. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Jesus, let’s start it! Cincy, turn in the card! Washington, turn in the card! We know who both picks are!

  67. ©MadMax Says:

    Dang, a lot going on! I hear ya….me, im good, been at home most of the last 3 weeks….supposed to go back to work next month if they still decide to open. Doing good though.

  68. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    I’m in all in this year man.

    12-4 LETS GO!!!

  69. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    I Hear U brotha.

  70. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Bengals….SEIZE THE DEY….LMAO!

  71. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Man I just heard Macabee pasted away.

  72. Bucs Guy Says:

    Sick to the plan!!
    No stupid moves like developmental QBs, TE, K or an early round CB. Hope they were smoke screens.

  73. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    FYI – Chat Sports (youtube channel) dropping the picks early

  74. JimmyJack Says:

    Oh great LUV. But thanks for reminding me. Always somebody gotta say the pick before it happens so I’ll make sure to log off from this chat before we actually pick

  75. Sarasota Garey Says:

    they are really dragging this out

  76. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Lol whats good bredren?
    Happy your alive and doing well

  77. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    I wont say a word

  78. JimmyJack Says:

    Detroit will be the 1st pick to get interesting. Cincy and Washington are easy guesses with Burrow/Daniels

  79. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    This sucks

  80. Will Says:

    OK this is getting RIDICULOUS

  81. JimmyJack Says:

    Thanks Luv and thanks. Good to see ya.

    And you know some dope will come here and ruin it. Never fails.

  82. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Cmon bungles!?!?!

  83. Pa Privateer Says:

    wow can’t even watch a live feed anywhere…..its freaking 2020

  84. JimmyJack Says:

    Good Lord why are they turning this years draft into a so fest. This coverage is absolutely terrible. Maybe they will get to the highlights once picks start coming in.

  85. JimmyJack Says:

    Sob fest**

  86. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Coverage does suck

  87. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Mel Kiper is more annoying looking at him online

  88. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Good to see you too brotha.

  89. Bucs Guy Says:

    This is the problem with day 1. 10 minutes between picks and the networks want to use it all.

  90. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Yeah skins pick is in and espn is still running their big mouths

  91. JimmyJack Says:

    I think it used to be longer then 10 minutes too.

  92. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Thicka then two snickas — Lawd

  93. JimmyJack Says:

    Somebody’s gonna be in love with a QB. Detroit or New York is trading is my guess.

  94. Bucs Guy Says:

    Tonight will go at least til midnight. Quit alking and keep picking. Too many interviews and different people involved.

  95. JimmyJack Says:

    Booger is pretty good at this stuff but it’s gonna take me some time to get over the pain his voice causes me from ruining Monday Night Football.

  96. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Makes me wanna go to bed early tonight

  97. Bucamania Says:

    Now it will start to get interesting…

  98. Tye Says:

    WoW!… this is the best they could come up with..

  99. ©MadMax Says:

    Theres Okudah!

  100. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    So far so good.

  101. JimmyJack Says:

    Yes!!! Simmons still there. I’m dreaming baby!!!

  102. Bucs Guy Says:

    Hopefully now it gets exciting. How do you know if the Bucs can get one of the big 4 OTs? Most likely we”ll know by pick 6. If 2 x OT are gone, no way. If 1 x OT is gone, maybe. If no OTs gone, then the Bucs have a good chance. Assuming nobody jumps in for a trade. The wild card is the Jets.

    Why do I say this? Because you can count on AZ and the Browns mot likely taking an OT. The Browns could trade for Trent Williams and go elsewhere and that helps the Bucs.

  103. JimmyJack Says:

    Bucs Guy if you want OT this is a important pick. New York may take a tackle.

  104. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Giants will take Simmons

  105. Bucamania Says:

    Giants almost certainly going OT. Could be Simmons though

  106. Bucs Guy Says:

    Simmons, Brown and Kinlaw all gone by #9 or #13 at the latest.
    Tua and Herbert both gone by #9.

  107. ©MadMax Says:

    Giants must be getting called like crazy!

  108. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Browns aren’t trading

  109. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Watch the Giants take Brown.

  110. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Miami will take Herbert
    Chargers will take Tua
    Panthers will take Brown

  111. Bucs Guy Says:

    I want one of the big 4 OTs or Josh Jones/Ezra Cleveland in the 1st. I’m OK with trading back if we get an OT. There is a huge drop off at OT after the 1st rd.

  112. ©MadMax Says:

    Holy Jit, Thomas!!!!!

  113. FortMyersDave Says:

    Andrew Thomas off the board.

  114. Bucs Guy Says:

    Thomas gone. He and Wills were my choices because they were the most ready. Becton would be good and Wirfs if he’s the only one left because he may end up at G

  115. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    There is your first surprise!

  116. Elita Vita Says:


  117. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Well Thomas is off the board.
    Unless the Alabama kid drops — there’s no need to pick a tackle in the 1st

  118. JimmyJack Says:

    Dang I thought they would trade to a QB desperate team. We need QBs to start going.

  119. DaBux Says:

    If the other 3 are gone, take Chaisson to learn from Jedi Grand Master JPP.

    Man would having two killers on the outside, Shaq and Chaisson be awesome.

    Or the best WR.

  120. Buc4evr Says:

    Wow surprised Andrew Thomas went 4th to the Giants. I have a feeling all the top OTs will be gone by 14.

  121. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Why did Dave Gettleman just put a mask on in his own house? lol

  122. JimmyJack Says:

    Good news is Simmons still on the board

  123. DaBux Says:

    If the Fish don’t take Herbert, they are morons. Tua is too flawed and easily injured.

  124. ©MadMax Says:

    Gettleman, smdh, but thank you!!!

    Btw, wearing a mask alone in your house or in your car is the reason directions are put on shampoo bottles…..

  125. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    They could’ve trade down and still ended up with Thomas, lol.

  126. DaBux Says:

    Man those Tua kids DO NOT look happy wearing weed on their heads being put on live TV.

  127. BucfaninMi Says:

    Carolina will take Simmons. That will suck seeing him 2x a season

  128. DaBux Says:

    Top 5 Pick winning post material there.


  129. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    ESPN coverage so bad, dang.

  130. ©MadMax Says:

    DaBux Thats right, vodka tonics are going down good about now….Drink uP!

  131. FortMyersDave Says:

    Tua to Miami!

  132. DaBux Says:

    The fish take Tua. Awesome. They will keep on sucking.

  133. ©MadMax Says:

    Tua! Herbert next then have to hope Panthers take Brown….then we trade and grab Simmons at 8.

  134. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Fitz will be a good mentor for Tua. doesn’t have to start right away.

  135. ©MadMax Says:

    Come on Chargers….HERBERT, DO IT!!!!!!!!

  136. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    What if the Panthers take Herbert?

  137. JimmyJack Says:

    What are Chargers doing? Why don’t they have team needs list like normal?

  138. rrsrq Says:

    It will be midnight when the. U s pick when they trade back with the Pats, deal probably already done

  139. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Chargers taking Love, sit behind Rivers and rocking like Mahomes in 2021.

  140. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Tua will be another injury prone RG3

    …….sad but true. ^^^^^^

  141. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:


    What should the Bucs get in a trade down with the Pats? What do you think?

  142. ©MadMax Says:

    Rivers isnt there anymore, lol.

  143. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Dutch maybe you are in Holland, but Rivers is a Colt. Tyrod Taylor os the QB. or was depending on the next pick.

  144. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    WTF is ESPN delaying announcing picks with their crappy coverage???????

  145. Bucs Guy Says:

    We don’t want Simmons. We have Lavonte and White. We don’t need an LBand he isn”t a S no matter what the media says.

  146. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    It was a joke.

  147. ©MadMax Says:


    Now take Brown Panthers!!! Do it!

  148. ©MadMax Says:

    Oh, my bad man lol.

  149. Bucs Guy Says:

    OK, it’s probably going to come down to the Jets. Do they take the last of the big 4 OTs or do they go WR.

  150. JimmyJack Says:

    I don’t know if the Bucs are in love with Simmons but dang gum he is within range to make this happen!!! Just gotta avoid Carolina. They will not trade with us.

  151. EA Says:

    Bike prediction, Herbert will have the better career out of the 3 QBs drafted so far.

  152. Hater Hater Says:

    I would like to make love to the two ladies in the picture at the same time please. Who do I need to talk to to make that happen?

  153. SKBucsFan Says:

    3rd ranked player and the best LB falls to Carolina in their biggest need position just to piss off us Bucs fans. This draft already sucks…Lol

  154. King C Says:

    Things worked out great for Dolphins and Chargers — they both got what they wanted

  155. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    You guys really think all those OTs getting picked? Every year there is a ton of hype around OTs, but they never get picked in bulk.

  156. EA Says:


  157. JimmyJack Says:

    Bucs Guy Simmons is versatile. Bowles does good work with players that can move around.

  158. Bucs Guy Says:

    Unfortunately the Panthers are taking Simmons or Brown. Both great players and we’ll be facing one of them twice a year.

  159. King C Says:

    I still want an apology for all the idiots who said over and over again Dolphins were tanking to get the No.1 pick — they ended up costing Patriots homefield advantage and helped to end that dynasty

  160. WhiteQBsOverrated Says:

    Tua as much as I don’t like him barring injury will be the best qb from this draft. Joe burrow reminds me of a rich mans baker mayfield and Herbert is an introvert version of Blake bortles

  161. ©MadMax Says:

    Stupid commercials!!!

  162. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Bucs Guy, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Simmons would play safety in Bowles defense, and he would be absolutely lethal. Like the honey badger, but better.

  163. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Brady needs protection

    Gotta get a tackle

  164. Coburn Says:

    There is always the chance Simmons ends up like deone Buchanon…he was supposedly so crazy athletic and he wasn’t worth the pick

  165. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Where’s all these trades everyone was talking about. Teams playing it safe.

  166. tim Says:

    derrick brown taken

  167. Zwak Says:

    Why can’t this site auto refresh?

  168. Bucs Guy Says:

    I apologize. I thought the Dolphins were tanking for Tua during the first half of the year when they were winless.

    Now, who’s going to lose for Lawrence? My guess is Jax or the Redskins.

  169. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Damn that’s a nice pick. Capps gonna get his lunch money stolen all day.

  170. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    Six picks remaining and three OT’s left on the board.

  171. SKBucsFan Says:

    Licht has to draft for need. Not the best player available. When the guy you drafted for need is a bust , well at least you tried. When the guy ypu draft because he slipped in the draft and became available for you and it is not a need becomes a draft, well then you just added to the continued woes of the franchise.
    Pick an OT

  172. ©MadMax Says:

    YES!!! BROWN!!!!

    Time to trade!!!!

  173. JimmyJack Says:

    Dang I hope the Bucs are on the phone right now.

  174. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    If Wirfs, Wills, or Simmons isn’t there at 14, need to trade back for more picks, and get RT Isaiah Wilson.

  175. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Great. So now we have to stop brown.

  176. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Nope pick is in

  177. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    OOH GOD. Brown off the board. We will get some major loot in a trade down now!

  178. Coburn Says:

    Not sure why you’d trade now with 3 if en still on board unless one was really that much better than the others head and shoulders

  179. SKBucsFan Says:

    Tua will have a Winston-esque career with more injuries. He stares his receivers down hard.

  180. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That’s a little worrisome

  181. JimmyJack Says:

    If you trade for OT is for a LT……or trade for my guy Simmons.

  182. King C Says:

    JAX is too easy
    There’s a good chance the worst team next year will already have a young QB – Cincy, NYG, LAC

  183. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Panthers got a great player 🙁

    There goes Simmons.

  184. JimmyJack Says:

    Well that’s one reason we couldn’t trade up with them. Wonder if the Bucs even considered it.

  185. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Jeudy, Kinlaw, Wirfs, Wills all still available.

  186. ©MadMax Says:

    Simmons gone 🙁

  187. MtBucsfan Says:

    Boring predictable draft….

  188. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    CRAP — there goes my Bucs pick – Simmons

  189. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Hmmm maybe trade for Haason Reddick — for lower round compensation.

  190. Sarasota Garey Says:

    So far so good

  191. Bucs Guy Says:

    Bucs can sit and get an OT. Jax is going DB or DT. Browns OT, Jets OT or WR, Raiders OT. 49ers are going DB or DT.

  192. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    I’m guessing the Bucs don’t pick OT and announce the signing of Peters tomorrow.

  193. Bucs Guy Says:

    Sorry Raiders are going WR

  194. TBTeddy Says:

    No trades so far

  195. Don’t criticize America’s joe! Says:

    Thank god! This draft is falling well for the bucs so far

  196. Adrnagy Says:

    Simmons lol. Brown. Lol

  197. David Says:

    Kind of glad Simmons is off the board. It would’ve been nice, but they need an OL and then a RB in round two. They could not afford to get rid of another draft pick by trading up.
    I am hoping they get a fourth for OJ Howard

  198. JimmyJack Says:

    Now I don’t know who I want. Simmons was the extent of my couch scouting hahaha.

  199. Pm permanently moderated Says:

    Now we need a run on dts

  200. Adrnagy Says:

    No OT
    No WR

  201. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Unless someone trades up, we’ll have one of the big four OTs.

  202. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Dunno why people want Simmons

    Bucs need a tackle first and foremost

  203. ManzielMadness Says:

    Wills, Whirfs, Becton… also don’t mind Kinlaw/Chaisson

  204. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I agree

    …..draft a tackle

  205. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Sorry Becton will be gone next OT taken

  206. King C Says:

    I think there has to be a mix of need and value.
    I was one of the guys cheering on this same board 3 years ago when we drafted OJ Howard over need position studs like Tredavious White or Dalvin Cook
    In hindsight, drafting a TE who is at best the third option on offense in Rd 1 was a mistake even if it was perceived as value.
    But in that same draft picking C. Godwin in rd 3 was also based slightly more on value than need.

  207. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    No trades yet. Kind of surprised.

  208. Adrnagy Says:

    No tackle. Don’t screw it up.

  209. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    OH, this is going sooo well for us. Please, please, please let Wirfs or Wills drop…

  210. TBTeddy Says:

    Browns probably taking a tackle

  211. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    LMAO CJ. Another surprise.

  212. Sarasota Garey Says:

    So close

  213. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Cleveland will draft a tackle

  214. Adrnagy Says:

    We need dline. Rotation and for next year. Kinlaw. Is the pick. I just got off the phone with licht.

  215. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    You never know what the Browns will do though everyone has them taking an OT.

  216. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Why we need OT? Gronk be blocking. Haeg will be the new starting RT. We are gonna grab Jeudy, Kinlaw or Delpit. Mark it.

  217. Strix-on Says:

    Man it would be sweet for Wirfs or Willis

  218. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I’m too good

  219. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Dutch, Delpit would shock me. The others, not so much, but I really don’t want a WR in Round 1 this year.

  220. Bucs Guy Says:

    Best 2 Ts gone. I like Becton better only because Wirfs could end up as a G. If the Jets go WR, the Bucs will have their choice. Raiders going WR. 49ers going for Kinlaw.

  221. ©MadMax Says:

    Alright….Wirfs is still there.

  222. JimmyJack Says:

    Don’t worry Anthem. I don’t want Simmons anymore. All’s I want is not a Wideout.

  223. Bucsd04 Says:

    Kinlaw all the way

  224. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Haeg is a floater. He plays multiple positions, so that marks him as a non-starter. We’re getting an OT early. Maybe not tonight, but I sure hope so.

  225. rrsrq Says:

    Kinlaw, Kinlaw, Kinlaw

  226. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Jeudy would make this the best offense ever. 2 all pro WRs, all pro TE, all pro QB. Another 1st round elite college WR in Jeudy. It ain’t even fair for opposing defenses. You can pass at will, under 2 seconds the ball will be gone.

  227. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    If no tackle

    Then kinlaw

    Then Jeudy

  228. ©MadMax Says:

    Wirfs will be an all pro G and will do wonders for our run game! Plus if any injuries occur at RT, there he is.

  229. TBTeddy Says:


  230. Joe Says:

    The way this is shaking out, Bucs will get a damn fine player.

    Kinlaw or Ruggs would be cool as hell.

  231. TBTeddy Says:

    Moderation… moderation

  232. JimmyJack Says:

    Haeg will compete for a job reguardless. Even if we draft a Tackle and he is the real deal Haeg might just push Cappa back.

  233. adam from ny Says:

    wow looks good for a becton, kinlaw, or ruggs

  234. David Says:

    Wirfs or Bechton

    The Jets probably go tackle but the Raiders and SF won’t.

  235. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Is the last OL the Bucs drafted in the 1st round, Pinata Walker?

  236. JimmyJack Says:

    We got too many needs to fool around with a Wideout. We need pass rush pass coverage and a rush attack. Wideoout does not make us better as a team. Selfish greedy pick.

  237. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    What’s this Wirfs at G nonsense? He’s the MOST athletic tackle in the draft. He’ll be a top Tackle in the NFL…

  238. Adrnagy Says:

    49ers going WR

  239. Adrnagy Says:

    Raiders going WR

  240. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    Win NOW mentality in Bucs draft room. 43yr old QB, 68 yr old HC. All focus will be on offense. Jeudy is my prediction….BA thinks GOAT fast release/decisions make drafting OL less important in round 1… wants more O weapons.

  241. Adrnagy Says:

    We take kinlaw 🙂

  242. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    What about McKinney? I don’t want a safety this early, but. What if?

  243. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:


  244. QBKilla Says:

    Wirfs or Kinlaw?

  245. David Says:

    I don’t mean to be a d*ck, but who are you people saying they might draft a wide receiver?!?
    Unbelievably ignorant football knowledge. Your receivers don’t mean a damn thing if you don’t have an O line and RB.

  246. SKBucsFan Says:

    Damn. Only one first round OT on the Board now.

  247. TBTeddy Says:

    Gotta get wirfs help TB & the rbs

  248. TBXTBucs Says:

    Yes! I feel Wirfs is going to be better than Becton

  249. David Says:


  250. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    This is getting interesting…

  251. Bucs Guy Says:

    Bucs get Wirfs because the Raiders take WR and 49ers take Kinlaw.

  252. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    David, THANK YOU! 100% Correct!!!

  253. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Only one more big tackle left

  254. Joe Says:

    Kinlaw or Lamb or Ruggs!

  255. TBXTBucs Says:

    Pick has to be Wirfs don’t mess this up Licht!

  256. JustBucNwin Says:

    I’m afraid we might lose out on Wirfs from a trade with SF.

  257. David Says:

    I am surprised WIRFS fell this far. Raiders and SF are taking receivers. This worked out great for the Buccaneers.

  258. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Still scared someone is gonna come up in front of us for Wirfs.

  259. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Jordan Love

  260. King C Says:

    Looking good for Tristan Wirfs

  261. David Says:

    I think this format has made it to much of a pain in the ass for trades.

  262. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    It’ll either be

    Kinlaw or Jeudy now

  263. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Wirfs or Kinlaw…….Trenches here…..

  264. Big_Buc$ Says:

    Kinlaw at 14. You can find a RT in later rounds. Or just maybe sign Jason Peters or trade for Trent Williams

  265. Bucs Guy Says:

    Becton is the most likely T to bust if any of the big 4 do.

  266. LaMarcus Says:

    I don’t know why you pick guys that won’t be where we picking???

  267. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    You gotta get Kinlaw cause Suh cannot play every down

  268. VegasBuc Says:

    We’re going WR without a doubt!! Guaranteed we’re not picking Wirst if aval.

  269. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Kinlaw will be a consolation prize if someone steals Wirfs. I’ll be the first to dub him Fishermans Wirfs in respect to the Fishermans Warf that got demolished this week on Clearwater Pass.

  270. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I think raiders will be a WR

  271. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Damn I’m too good

  272. Joe Says:


  273. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We got Wirfs as long as SF doesn’t trade out of the spot.

  274. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Cool. We have some fantastic options

  275. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Kinlaw or Jeudy

  276. Bucs Guy Says:

    No money to pay Williams or Peters. The Bucs are over the cap by $4.5M. If we trade OJ we”re stll $0.6M over the cap.

  277. JimmyJack Says:

    So we got the OT or Kinlaw still there……..I’m happy with those choices.

    Another option could be someone wanting to trade up for a WR.

  278. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I’m good with Wirfs or Kinlaw.

  279. Kevin Says:

    Damm we should have traded up .hope we can trade oj to Washington

  280. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    If you don’t want Wirfs or Kinlaw (if he’s there) trade down!

  281. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Please don’t mess this up with a strange surprise pick we never heard of.

  282. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    What’s the best RTs on the board?

  283. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    SF needs a DT. We need a OT. Hopefully this plays out like it was scripted.

  284. SKBucsFan Says:

    Good pick Jon. Now we just need John Lynch to go DE

  285. VegasBuc Says:

    Ruggs is gone, we’re trading down for more picks I bet.

  286. David Says:

    Wow surprising wide receiver selection. Thought cee dee Or Juedy would go first

  287. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  288. Sarasota Garey Says:

    One more pick

  289. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    April 23rd, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    “Please don’t mess this up with a strange surprise pick we never heard of.”

    Heh. Kicker 😉

  290. Matt Says:

    Got to be Wirfs, unless SF trade

  291. Joe Says:

    Joe is frigging jumping up and down!!!

    CEE DEE!!!

    We get Tristan Wirfs!!!!

  295. King C Says:

    If the Bucs were to really draft a WR at No.1 when they already have two young Pro Bowl receivers plus Gronk and OJ/Brate — THAT would be epic GM malpractice
    In other words let’s hope Licht doesn’t pull another Aguayo

  296. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Suicidal if bucs trade down

  297. Anonymous Says:

    Trade down. Get a RB.

  298. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Who are these knuckleheads still saying WR??? Please, stop. You’re killing my buzzz…

  299. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    ……..he’s wearing a robe…….lol

  300. David Says:

    I don’t understand people.
    Why in the hell would they take a receiver?

    And why in the hell would people think the Buccaneers should trade down when an awesome tackle is sitting there staring them in the face?

    So much football ignorance.

  301. Jugheadfla Says:

    TB trades up

  302. BringBucsBack Says:

    Trade up!

  303. Matt Says:

    Trading up one. Someone must have been trying to trade ahead of us for Wirfs

  304. TheBucsAnthem Says:




  305. Kobe Faker Says:

    Teams want Jeudy and lamb

    We can get 2 and 3

    Trade down gump!!!”

    Kobe Faker

  306. David Says:

    I guess they were afraid someone else was going to come up and take wirfs

  307. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Huh? Bucs trade to move up one spot????

  308. EA Says:

    Wtf, they move up one friggin spot, this is Texans type of moves

  309. SKBucsFan Says:

    OMG Licht traded

  310. Bird Says:

    gonna be ab offensive tackle

    Wirfs baby…come on!!!!!!

    Seriously – a trade, what did they have to give up for one spot

  314. BradyBucs Says:

    Traded up 1!??

  315. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  316. DaBux Says:

    And we traded up. Good call. Take the sure fire starter for the next decade.

  317. Bucs Guy Says:

    Why are we trading up 1? Stupid.

  318. QBKilla Says:


  319. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Stupid trade

  320. King C Says:

    Oh god what did Licht do!

  321. JP09 Says:

    Hahaha we seriously traded up 1 spot with the talent that is still on the board…..

  322. Pa Privateer Says:

    Wtf why move up?

    WTF move up 1 spot with all the available players

  330. Zwak Says:


  331. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Why would you trade up 1 spot? Is Lynch giving us this pick or what? Im gonna be mad as F if they gave up any high pick. Maybe Howard?

  332. Coburn Says:

    Moved up because someone else wanted same guy and was calling sf as well imo

  333. King C Says:

    To be a Bucs fan is…..

  334. Bucs Guy Says:

    What did we give up? 3rd rd or OJ?

  335. Coburn Says:

    Just hope we didn’t give up much. If we missed wirfs or someone by that one pick you’d be wondering why he didn’t

  336. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Heeeeeeeey ole stale Biscuit!!!!!

  337. Petty Officer Buc Says:

    Throwing John Lynch a bone I see

  338. 123urout Says:

    Good. Take an OT to protect Brady

    Ole stale biscuit crumbled!!!!!!!!!!!

    Trading up cause they’re gonna pick Jeudy

  353. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    Good pick. Have to protect the GOAT.

  363. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Awesome baby!

  364. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    I gotta think John Lynch was looking out for us, and other teams were offering to trade ahead to get Wirfs. Whatever, we got our man!

  365. Buc4evr Says:

    Omg. Wirfs. I can’t believe he fell this far. RT and LT. great pick !!

  366. Petty Officer Buc Says:

    Remember somehow Lynch convinced Da Bears that they should trade up from 3 to 2 to draft Mitch Tribusky.

  367. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    BuccoDav Says
    “Why? SF wasn’t going to take a tackle!”

    I can only guess that John Lynch called them and told them another team wanted to trade up so they could take him. John would do that because of loyalty.

    And it would have helped us a lot.

  368. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    This dude is legit. Quadzilla!!!!!

  369. 123urout Says:

    Lynch told Bucs somebody wants to take our position to pick an OT. So bucs agreed to move up

  370. Matt Says:

    I’m thrilled with Wirfs!!! 💪💪💪💪

  371. King C Says:

    Cant wait to see who SF drafts with that 117th pick

  372. BradyBucs Says:

    Great pick. Just hope we didn’t give up the farm to get him.

  373. Proudbucsfan Says:

    IMO that was a stupid move

  374. ©MadMax Says:

    Like I said, big strong fast guys, especially when they’re wrestling state champs, are a no miss!!!!!!

    He was my 3rd if we missed on Simmons and Brown! Good trade, I hope it didnt cost much.

  375. Dapostman Says:

    In 2019 about 3 teams jumped the Bucs early in round 2 to grab OL.

    This is why Bucs moved up so no one can jump them this year.

  376. DaBux Says:

    I like the pick Joe. Taking a wrestler with great upper body control and massive strength, yeah, he can open up the run game. Plus a little pro time and his pass blocking skills will develop fast.

  377. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    Lynch gave us this one. I dont expect a high compensation. Maybe Howard, but could be a 4th rounder at the most. Maybe even a 5th + next years 5th.

  378. Steven007 Says:

    I hope it’s Wirf it.

  379. ©MadMax Says:

    Probably a 4th.

  380. Jeagan1999 Says:

    What did we give up

  381. EA Says:

    That jumping out of the pool clip was insane, wow!!!

  382. Coburn Says:

    Lynch may have done us a solid by telling us someone wanted wirfs. Or if course he was just bluffing. Possible if we gave up on we got the spot and a later pick in draft. That would be ok if we got a later pick thrown in

  383. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Not 1 trade yet. Bucs got suckered.

  384. Rick Says:

    49ers probably would’ve gone receiver anyway. What did they give up?

  385. mark2001 Says:

    Stop crying guys…we got a great Tackle…. at a position of need. And it costs us a 4th round pick. We can still get that premier RB and back up receiver or safety.

  386. BucDan Says:

    We traded up because another team wanted Wirfs too. We made a move to get the next best player in the draft.

    Go Bucs!

  387. rrsrq Says:

    JL got nervous

  388. Joseph Mamma Says:

    Bucs Guy Says:
    April 23rd, 2020 at 9:50 pm
    Same trick 49ers pulled on Bears with Trubisky


    Exactly, John Lynch seems to have mastered the art of getting teams to bid against themselves.

  389. Jerry Says:

    It wasn’t the 49ers that we were worried about. Someone else may have been trying to jump up in front of us.

  390. geno711 Says:

    4th rounder give up. Got san fran 7th rounder

  391. Buc50 Says:

    Suckered or not…they had to move up to guarantee they get their guy.

  392. DBS Says:

    To bad if you don’t like it. You don’t run the team or know what was going on .

  393. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Anyone who thinks this is a bad move is an idiot. Obviously, somebody was looking to jump ahead to get incredible athlete.

  394. Iamabuc Says:

    Ok…Tom is safe….now get Helaire or whatever that RB name is…🤣🤣🤣

  395. BuccoDav Says:

    Look, I love Lynch like the rest of you. But if you really think he was looking out for the best interests of the Bucs, you don’t know business!
    I like the pick but I hope we didn’t give up too much..

  396. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    I’m hearing Howard is a Niner!

  397. lambchop Says:

    Either Lynch looked out for us or raked us. We gave up the pick in the 4th Rd.

  398. Wesley Says:

    Wait did we seriously give up a 4th round pick to move up 1 spot?

  399. SKBucsFan Says:

    Got the guy I wanted. Never thought he would be here, but what did we give up?

  400. King C Says:

    It wasn’t that long ago pple thought NYG would take T. Wirfs at No.4 so I will give Licht credit for getting his guy. Last year we got the obvious need pick in LB Devin White and that worked out Ok

  401. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    great pick time to get an RB now

  402. Dewey Selmon Says:

    We got Trubisky’d

  403. Mord Says:

    The remaining 4th round pick and we get another 7th

  404. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I dunno……..tackle need filled

    But honestly………

    If Brady gets the ball out fast and you have Jeudy in the slot……BAM!

  405. Dapostman Says:

    Think of it this way.

    You gave up two 4th’s and got back two 7th’s for Gronk.

  406. Buc4evr Says:

    Agreed BucDan, another team further down wanted to trade up and Licht outbid them. Great pickup ! Now let’s get a RB And Safety.

  407. DUTCH-BUC-FAN Says:

    How do we trade a 4th if we already traded our 4th for Gronkowski?

  408. BradyBucs Says:

    Yep, RB next.

  409. Adrnagy Says:

    We got screwed.

  410. David Says:

    He should have been a top eight pick.
    There absolutely were teams seeing if they could trade up to get him.
    Great move by the Bucs, hopefully it didn’t cost them much.
    This kid is a beast!
    Now get that running back in round two

  411. 541BucsFan Says:

    Love the pick. Okay with the trade. He was the last of the big four and my #2 OT. Get your guy.

    Good day 1

  412. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Yeah…Lynch was looking out for the Bucs. He’s still pissed at how his time ended in Tampa…great theory.

  413. Strix-on Says:

    Hell, he can play guard if Haeg pans out at RT. Instant upgrade over Cappa as well. A whole new right side

  414. Jerry Says:

    We don’t know what other offers SF was getting. Someone else may have really wanted to move up. So we had to outbid them.

    That’s premium you pay when you draft need. We really needed that guy.

  415. David Says:

    Got to love the ever positive buccaneer fans bitching and whining because they moved up a spot to get a tackle that is a top five pick in most drafts. You realize he was ranked the number 1 or 2 tackle in most mocks?
    ….But keep whining and bitching, good Lord.


  416. ATL Bucs Fan Says:

    You have to think someone else was trying to trade up to take Wirfs. It’s clear as day.

  417. King C Says:

    I really doubt that any poster saying the Bucs should’ve drafted a WR is a real Bucs fan

  418. Proudbucsfan Says:

    We got screwed

  419. SKBucsFan Says:

    Licht got played. Niners wanted Kinlaw all along.

  420. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I wonder if that trade up just sent Howard to 49ers

  421. rrsrq Says:

    Does anyone know what we gave up to get fleeced by John Lynch who is still mad the Bucs didn’t re-sign him

  422. 123urout Says:

    if Lynch intentions are good, we owe him something other than a 4th rd pick. He will get back to BUCS with a favor…… hmmmm

  423. TBTeddy Says:

    Y’all want RB or Safety next?

  424. SoFloBuc Says:

    Why did we trade one spot?? And they went DT?

  425. permanent_moderation_doghouse Says:

    Needed an OT. Apparently loved Wirfs. Trade up one spot is fine. If that’s your guy and he’s the last of the big 4, go get him. Someone else could’ve traded with SF to snag him, probably had some intelligence that other teams might try to jump ahead.

  426. Beeej Says:

    Wirfs outweighs me by 200 pounds…and he’s FASTER then me

  427. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    ATL Bucs Fan Says
    “You have to think someone else was trying to trade up to take Wirfs. It’s clear as day.”

    Except to the haters.

  428. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    BucsAnthem, maybe you didn’t realize it, but we already have the BEST WR tandem in Evans and Godwin, and the BEST TE in Gronk. We didn’t need a #3 WR. Scotty Miller is going to be Brady’s next Edelman/Welker.

  429. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Just what we need……another freakish athlete on the team that is an unfinished product again…….who does that remind you of?????

  430. King C Says:

    Let’s get one thing clear: Unless they were bidding against Denver or Atlanta, the Bucs got suckered.
    If SF trades down they would not get J. Kinlaw because no way he falls past 16
    SF wanted Kinlaw as a replacement for D. Buckner

  431. BucDan Says:

    Niners wanted Kinlaw, which is why they were willing to trade down with Wirf on the board. Not that difficult to understand.

    Go Bucs!

  432. ©MadMax Says:

    Guys, we had two 4ths….the second one was a compensatory pick that we trade to NE fro Gronk…..we tradedour remaining original 4th for a Beast O line. Its beautiful. I never thought Wirfs would fall this far.

    Now we need to get Clyde/Dobbins/Taylor.

  433. Dapostman Says:


    It’s not who the Niners wanted. It’s who else wanted Wirfs and it sounds like the Falcons and maybe some others were interested in moving up into the Niners spot because they knew the Bucs would take him at 14.

  434. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Hope we get Dobbins next

  435. BuccoDav Says:

    Maybe… we will never know if someone else was trying to move into the slot. Lynch may be the only person to ever know that for sure.

  436. Dewey Selmon Says:

    If CEH is a dream draft pick for Brady do you trade back into round 1 and get hime?

  437. Kobe Faker Says:

    Niners had to have Kinlaw to replaced Buckner

    They moved back to Tampa knowing Tampa wont pick Kinlaw

    Niners wanted Kinlaw as much as Tampa wanted Wilfs

    And got a free pick

    *It was as much Niners than Tampa”

    Kobe Faker

  438. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    The Bucs truly doesn’t have a slot receiver

    Justin Watson isn’t the answer either

  439. TBTeddy Says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if John lynch finessed us he seemed to be giggling a lil too much lol

  440. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    The 49ers fleeced Jason Gump

    The Bucs shouldn’t have traded

  441. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Anyone with,half of a brain realizes this was a good pick. BPA at a position of need. Obviously someone knew we were targeting Words and would have jumped ahead of us at 13 to grab him. C’mon peeps, don’t be idiots.

  442. TBTeddy Says:

    Percy Harvin coming back to play slot 😁

  443. Rayjay1122 Says:


  444. BucDan Says:

    Bucs should pick up Gabe Davis out of UCF to be their slot WR.

    Go Bucs! Go Knights!

  445. Mord Says:

    Totally Wirf it.

  446. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    You guys are confusing raw talent tackle who’s an unfinished tackle with other more complete tackles ahead of him

    Don’t act like this guy will be amazing from day one….it’s quite the opposite………he needs alota work

  447. Bobby Says:

    Freakish athletes like JPP?! I love Wirfs.

  448. King C Says:

    Word on Twitter is that the 49ers were calling around to trade down after Henry Ruggs got sniped from them at No. 12
    That must be the reason Bucs bit — to keep another team from getting ahead of them and *maybe* picking Wilfs.

    I still think Licht panicked but now I understand better why he did it.

  449. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    Tampa got their OT for a 4th round pick, And we got Gronk for a 5th also. So we should all tip our caps to Licht instead of 2nd guessing him.

  450. SKBucsFan Says:

    You’re right MadMax. We got the guy. It just hurts that we lost another pick. Our GM isn’t a rookie. We can only hope the 7th rounder turns out to be the best pick in the draft lol

  451. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    Well, Joe asked what move would be an “all in”? I think we got our answer if we gave up a four for an OT. The best thing about Wirfs is he’s an experienced RT. He’s an immediate plug and play guy.

  452. BuccoDav Says:

    Not arguing whether it was a good pick or not. I wanted a tackle. Preferred Thomas but Wirfs is great. Light got played… cost us a 4th. I would be ok with a 6th, maybe a 5th. Who the hell are we kidding. Light sucks at drafting late rounds anyways.

  453. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Yeah can’t complain about Wirfs. One of the top physical specimens of this draft and with and Iowa Oline pedigree. Solid solid pick.

  454. Phx Buc Fan Says:

    Words of wisdom from Formerly Tampa 2!

  455. ATL Bucs Fan Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Except to the haters.

    I think it might just be me, you and a few others then based on what I’m reading in here lol.

  456. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    oops, Gronk for a 4th. sorry.

  457. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I agree

    Jason Litch didn’t have to give up the 4th rd pick

    Oh well

  458. Dewey Selmon Says:

    So basically we used New Englands 7th round pick.

  459. Ndog Says:

    So we traded away our 4th so that means no future QB. Great…..

    I told you all yesterday they are going to give Brady everything to succeed. Why wouldn’t you do that for the first overall pick? This franchise is so freaking stupid.

    Don’t get me wrong I love this pick, but where was this the last five years instead of flipping OJ Howard when we already had Brate?

  460. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Let’s how this raw talent tackle turns out to be as good as we all hope he will be…..

    If so……….then we got a helluva steal in the draft

  461. BUCTIME Says:

    Kobe Faker go stalk people on Social media and stay off this site !! Your humor and comments suck, but like I said maybe theirs a girl out there for you and go for a long walk for a couple of months. Don’t worry your stimulus check is coming along with unemployment, but I wish I could get your address and knock some sense into you with my first !! You are such a loser and thankfully 95 percent know it

  462. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    And……..ques the douschbag of the night. “Ndog”

    On time with stupidity as usual

  463. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Kobe is awesome!

    Leave him alone you part-timer

  464. NDog is an idiot Says:

    NDog still slurping on JayMiss!! Move on!!!!

  465. TBTeddy Says:

    Hopefully the cowboys do something stupid because, we’ll just because

  466. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Can we trade Licht for Lynch? Lynch has been in SF for less time than Licht in Tampa and got to the super bowl. Here’s another example why.

  467. Coburn Says:

    We could have tried telling sf that if they traded the pick we’d take kinlaw… Maybe they would have stayed out but maybe not. It’s possible another team could have made it worthwhile for them. I do wonder about giving up that 4th and whether we would have been better taking kinlaw or someone but 4ths don’t often work out ..

  468. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    Lynch stole the Gumpster Fire’s lunch money.

    That was very embarrassing to watch.

    I like Wirfs but it was a cheap trick on a mental midget.

    That 4th round pick could have been combined with #45 to move up into the 1st to lock up the best RB like Clyde on a 5 year rookie contract.

    Gump be nimble, Gump be quick, Gump tripped over Candlestick.

  469. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Tulane WR Darnell Mooney would make a nice slot receiver.

  470. King C Says:

    After the first round, the 49ers didn’t have another until No. 156 — so Lynch was very motivated and he may have accepted a worse deal if Bucs didn’t give in

  471. TBTeddy Says:

    I keep getting stuck in moderation I’m like a OG poster tho

  472. SKBucsFan Says:

    Why did are the other NFC south teams going defense? What are they scared of?

  473. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Noone will ever know why Jason Litch basically gave the niners a free 4th rd draft pick. (:

  474. JimmyJack Says:

    Yes Coburn …..That’s why SF traded with us. They wanted Kinlaw and trading to us was only way they get him in a trade.

  475. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    Can’t believe that we got one of the better 4 OT’s for a 4th round pick and people are complaining. Hell, for those that are saying we won’t get a running back, I wouldn’t complain if Licht traded a certain TE to Jax for Fournette after the draft.

  476. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Poor Joe. Gues he has to hope for a RB in round 2 😉

  477. FortMyersDave Says:

    Falcons reached for a surprise pick with all the talent left on the board…..

  478. JimmyJack Says:

    Ghost all’s that matters is Words. If the dude can play nobody is ever gonna remember the trade.

  479. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    We gave away a 4th pick

  480. JimmyJack Says:

    Wirfs*** not words

  481. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    The problem everyone is having is that we didn’t have to lose a draft pick cause niners knew they were not going to take a OT

  482. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Jalen Hurts in the 2nd, Antonio Gibson in the 3rd, Davon Hamilton in the 5th.

  483. King C Says:

    CeeDee Lamb is a sneaky good pick for Dallas bc it blocks Philly from getting him and he’s pretty much the most can’t-miss WR in the draft

  484. JerseyBucsFan Says:

    Fine with the pick but did we really have to give up a 4th. John must have a serious poker face

  485. King C Says:

    Good news is there will good RBs available in Rd 2
    Bad news Licht may be forced to trade up again because everyone knows we really really need a RB

  486. JimmyJack Says:

    Anthem. So you are saying the Bucs just traded up for the hell of it? You do realize that doesn’t make any sense don’t you?

  487. Ndog Says:

    So you guys think it was a good decision to take OJ when we had Brate instead of an elite back or a top OLmen?

    So in three years when this guy is hitting his stride who exactly will he be blocking for?

  488. Coburn Says:

    Jimmy.. I’m sure they wanted him.. the question is how bad? If they could have moved back a few more spots and got a 3rd they may have been tempted to settle for another guy they had rated highly

  489. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    interesting pick by Miami. Wondering if they were talking with SF

  490. Coburn Says:

    I’m sure it was Miami we were competing against

  491. Costa Rica John Says:

    Waiting for tomorrow now. I’ll get out my list of kickers later and see who’s available in the second round. 😂

  492. JimmyJack Says:

    Coburn……I’m just guessing the 49ers had Kinlaw on the top of their board. Why settle for a lesser player when you can get your guy and pick up a fourth? The difference of a third or fourth isn’t that much.

    Not as much as taking the best player on your board at 13.

  493. JimmyJack Says:

    NDog….Our Front office has changed since 2017. Didn’t you know this?

  494. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Npup, not that OJ is (yet) but anybody at any pick can be a bust. Hindsight is 20/20. Maybe, since you’re so smart, you could invent a time machine so all of the Bucs draft picks since ’76 can be perfect.

  495. Dapostman Says:

    @Bucs Anthem,

    The issue is WHAT team was willing to jump Tampa to trade with San Fran to draft Wirfs? I’ve heard the Falcons were one.

    It’s not about who the Niners wanted.

  496. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    “Ghost all’s that matters is Words. If the dude can play nobody is ever gonna remember the trade.”

    Wirfs and his agent will remember when negotiations take place. He may hold out to be paid like a Top 10 pick because he is a #!3 and a #117.

    Stupid is as stupid does , that’s why Gump earned his nickname.

  497. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ndog Says:
    “So in three years when this guy is hitting his stride who exactly will he be blocking for?”

    A Quarterback we trade for, sign or draft.

    Seriously, dude, did you expect them to draft a QB in round one? We needed this guy, and we got him. It was a GREAT pick.

    I’m hoping we trade back into the first for Eason though. Or a Safety.

  498. Ndog Says:

    First of all the front office has not changed at all so you are wrong there, the coaching staff changed. Secondly who cares if it did as it is the Bucs and that what I care about. This team is simply full of idiots and they have now gone all in and if they dont win it all they have screwed us for the next decade. So they better win it all or these are going to be viewed as the worst moves in the history of this franchise. Brady is going to have the most perfect situation you could get and if anyone doesnt think that the results would have been similar if you gave Jameis a good running game and strong oline/defense you are insane. So we could have had this run for the next 8-10 years but due to their lack of common sense we get a 2 year run and then what?

    So yeah this is exciting and all but then what? You guys dont get it, Arains is a snake oil salesmen and could not care or less about our future as this is all about him and once hes gone if this place burns down he couldnt give two sh!ts.

    Sorry maybe Im old school but I want coaches and players that care about us and the city and the future. I am not a Yankees fan or RedSox fan where it is lets just go out and buy our trophies I like to have a team that is part of us not guys who come in and try to change the name of our city within 20 days, which clearly shoes they are all about them.

  499. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    Ndog, While I still disagree with you on Winston, I still admire your passion for the team. I think that You will enjoy next year along with the rest of us.

  500. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    Had to walk dog….back…. Wirf is incredible athlete, especially for his size. Great pick. Wish we waited for him at 14, instead of trading up. Lynch was crafty – Kudos to him.

  501. JimmyJack Says:

    NDog the HC is part of the Front Office………Especially with Arians. I think you gotta be a darn fool to think Bruce does not have an influence in how these decisions are being made.

    Bruce is pulling some of the strings here. It’s pertty much common knowledge among Bucs fans. That means the process of decision making is different now then it was in 2017. Duh.

  502. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    There goes Justin Jefferson off my wishlist 🙁

  503. JimmyJack Says:

    And to say they screwed us for the next decade is completely irrational and has no basis of logic.

    I have explained to you several times how Bruce does care about the future of this franchise. You have chosen to close your eyes and ears as a wee little toddler would. That is your perrogative.

    And to say we can achieve the same success with Brady or Winston all the same is completely dumbfounded……..The reason is because you cannot trust Winston to consistently play good and not have a bad game……..One game is all you get in this league buddy. This isn’t the 1912 World Series you don’t get a nine game series. You get one shot and one chance in the NFL. Winston simply could not be trusted and has a track record to proove so. You cannot deny that. You can try but you will fail Everytime.

  504. Ndog Says:

    Again I dont care whos fault it is and to be honest part of why this team is hard to love is because of Arians. This guy is a duche bag plain and simple. I want us to win the SuperBowl more than anyone but at the same time I am going to be sick to my stomach if that jacka$$ wins a SuperBowl cause I cant stand him. I cant stand selfish people and he just clearly is all about himself and will throw anyone under the bus to make himself look good and I mean ANYONE.

  505. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ndog, I normally stick up for you, but all this whining is making it hard. Just embrace the present.

    If you look closer, we ARE preparing for the future. This tackle will play 10-14 years. Cappa will play another 10-12 years. Marpet will play about 10 more years.

    Godwin will be here. Evans will be here. Rojo will be here.

    Tons of other young guys.

    And the all-in players we got this year? Their salaries won’t hamper us later, because they’ll quickly be off the books.

    So brighten up! We could well be the first team with homefield advantage in NFL history! And we might just draft our next QB by the third round.

  506. REDZONE BA Fa Says:

    Ndog – agree that JW would thrive with the current “win now” 2020 strategy draft plan, especially with a real RB and OL protection, and second year in the “sling it” offense.

    Sucks that Bucs are trading long-term strategy for short-term “win now” rental plan. It is what it is.

    68yr old coach, 43 yr old QB – Win NOW is strategy. SB or bust.

  507. JimmyJack Says:

    Another fair point is if Winston stay guys like JPP and Suh might just as well be gone already.

    So it’s not so simple as to say you can switch Winston for Brady and the team would be the same.

  508. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ndog, I really do not get your attitude toward Arians. How do you justify it? Most of his players past and present say nothing but good things.

  509. Ndog Says:

    Yep just like Peyton Manning couldnt be trusted either right? Players get better bro but they dont if they are 43 years old, see my point?

  510. Ndog Says:

    Guys if you doubt me on Arians just look at how and what he left in AZ. Once he saw the writing on the wall cause he brought in an old beatup QB that could not go anymore he hit the bricks. Now he has come here and done the same thing, didnt develop a young QB, bailed and went out and got the oldest QB in the league. So again I ask what happens in 2-3 years? You guys act like this is all guaranteed to work when the reality is this has NEVER worked without an all time great defense in Denver one time.

  511. JimmyJack Says:

    I get it NDog……You can’t blame us fans no more cause no it’s not our fault. So you gotta pick a new target and it Bruce.

    Ypur little opinion has been proven wrong and you will do anything and blame anyone to protect it. You put you opinion above the betterment of the team.

    So we will deal with you as another hater of our team members.. It’s ironic that you have become a hater which is who you was against for so long……..And I will be sick to my stomach if we win too…..but for a much different reason of all the shot I will do while partying.

  512. FortMyersDave Says:

    Look, the 4th round pick would’ve been nice to trade up with or perhaps find a diamond in the rough but remember who the GM is, its like Forrest Gump’s box of ****ing chocolates and though the pick could have been useful it could just as likely been used on a bust or another kicker so its not like the Bucs traded away the 2nd round pick in 2021 to move up one but yeah Lynch did get over on Licht, probably told him the Falcons or Fins were offering a 3rd or 2nd to move up to con Jason into pulling the trigger……..

  513. JimmyJack Says:

    No I don’t see your point. That’s because it’s pointless to compare dicarded QBs to a Hall of Famer.

  514. Ndog Says:

    For example in 2-3 years who’s replacing all of the below very important positions:

    Brady QB
    Gronk TE
    Suh DT
    Jensen C

  515. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    Just read an article on why Licht traded with 49’ers. There wasn’t just one team, but numerous teams that wanted to trade up for Wirfs. Licht just gave up the 4th for insurance to get Wirfs. Not so stupid after all.

  516. ©MadMax Says:

    Sanfran using our trade to get back into the 1st, #25

  517. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Did 9ers screw the Dolphins again?

  518. ©MadMax Says:

    Ndog is right everyone….just nod in agreement and keep moving.

  519. JimmyJack Says:

    This is not Arizona bud. How do you not even know this after I tell you time after time.

    Did Bruce have a successor he was setting up in Arizona? No.

    Does he in Tampa Bay? Yes.

    That’s the difference. See that’s called a long-term plan. And that’s what makes you wrong.

  520. BucsFan81 Says:

    I don’t know why anyone is complaining. I swear it was like midpoint in the season last year where we thought we were going to be in a complete rebuild based on the QB situation not working out. Here we are now with a 2-3 year window to win it all with the Goat, Gronk and a new top RT in the draft. I don’t care that we lost a 4th round pick cause I see where we are headed and that’s towards another ring.

  521. permanent_moderation_doghouse Says:

    I’ve never seen people talked about getting “fleeced” over a 4th rounder… Ridiculous. For a starting tackle with ridiculous athleticism… People just love to complain about anything Jason Licht does. It’s nuts.

  522. JimmyJack Says:

    Oh and NDog thanks for coming in here and peeing all over draft night.

    Haters like you just love to ruin things. Not sure what makes y’all tick.

    In other news…….I’m following the rest of the picks and a lot of corners and WRs are going off the board. Good for the Bucs since we are probably looking at other positions tomorrow.

    LUV was here earlier calling for this Epanesa(spelling) I think he’s still around.

  523. DBS Says:

    I already told you he is going to b!tech the entire season. Just get use to it.

  524. JerseyBucsFan Says:

    If you don’t see a future with this team than why waste your time commenting about them now.

  525. ItzOK Says:

    Lynch just screwed over Licht. hey Jason my phone is ringing off the hook right now. Who do you want to take just to make sure its not the guy we want. Oh Wirf yea three teams on hold are calling for Wirf too what a coincidence. Give me a 4 right now or I’m hanging up. You have 30 seconds or I’m picking up the other line.

  526. Bangkok Buc Says:

    No RBs yet.
    Love it!!!

  527. ©MadMax Says:

    CB runs to end the first round…..I got a feeling RB runs will start tomorrow around 40. Theres still some DE’s and a QB and an OT still out there.

  528. ©MadMax Says:

    @Jimmy, people like that only ruin anything if you allow it….trolls live for that. Dont feed the trolls!!!!

    Like I said, Ndog is right, whatever he says, let him do it and think whatever…all good Bro. Nod in agreement and keep moving….much better things to spend your time and energy on!

    We got 2nd’s and 3rd’s to research bro 🙂

    We got 2nd’s and 3rd’s to research bro 🙂

    Ha like you guys have any idea what you are looking at. It is crystal clear you are only going to believe what you are told to believe. Go listen to the shill Rick Stroud and he will tell you all what to think so you can feel knowledgeable tomorrow.

  534. ©MadMax Says:

    We still got Taylor/Dobbins/Swift….then Akers if those are gone.

  535. MDFree Says:

    Got a feeling there’s gonna be a run on running backs at the start of rd 2 tomorrow. We may have to trade up again to get our guy.

  536. ©MadMax Says:

    Yep, you’re right Ndog….even though I went against the grain with lobbying for Big V when we had GMC, and then lobbied last year for White….Marpet a while back too. But you’re right, im only going to believe what Im told to. You shouldve believed your Mom when she told you your Dad/Uncle is her brother….ah but what do you do when you refuse to believe you were inbred conceived….carry on

  537. Ivan The Insider Says:


    OMG… what a big crybaby. I’ve never seen a big whiner in the last 20 years online.

    The best is how Ndog thinks he actually knows anything about the NFL to try and backup his man-love for Jameis Winston. Dude, GET OVER IT… he’s gone. He couldn’t get it done. He’s a turnover machine. No one signed him because he’s too much of a risk.

    Man oh man… Ndog… WHAAAAA…. “Who’s going to replace Jensen, JPP, Suh, Brady, Gronk???”

    I’ll tell you who…


    You know, how the NFL works and how ALL of those players were brought to the Bucs? It’s called FREE AGENCY, you NOOB.

    You really do post the DUMBEST stuff in your GRIEF over Winston.

    Jenson, JPP, Suh and Brady were ALL signed as free agents. No drafting necessary. Gronk was a rare situation but close to a free agent signing aside from giving up a compensatory late 4th.

    Do you not actually PAY ATTENTION to the Bucs and the NFL? Did you not know there was a FREE AGENCY component to it?

    And no matter what… Jameis Winston would NOT have the same success Brady may have this year because he could never have brought Gronk here, and like Jimmy said above, there was a good chance JPP and Suh weren’t sticking around for another season of 35 giveaways by your boy wonder.

    GIVE IT A REST. Your crying has gotten so old.

    The Bucs truly doesn’t have a slot receiver

    Justin Watson isn’t the answer either.

    Yeah because Pats drafted so many high end picks with their slot guys for Brady. He’s actually a Qb that makes players better, not the other way around. Absurd comment by you when you have zero idea what Watson is or can be or anyone else for that matter

    Godwin played over half his snaps at the slot.

    Like NDOG I’m really worried about how we are going to replace our 4th round pick and these players that are going to retire or be cut in 3-4 years. Maybe we can bring back JW on a veteran deal to start? Or draft other players or sign other free agents? How’s that’s big JW deal going? McCoy has signed with two teams, Barber signed as well.

    Alright, NEED THAT SAFETY!!! XavMck still there!!! I know we need a RB too, but we do have one in Rojo. Whitehead is pretty much all we have at Safety. Get him a partner that can hunt like Simmons!

    Xavier Mckinney…..Im surprised he’s still available….
