    I hate when Joe drinks before a podcast 😞
    Not cool, or nice, or accurate. And you posted this comment only 15 minutes after the podcast appeared.–Joe

    “Dont draft a center, top paid centers were drafted in 3rd round or later!”
    Who gives a flying F about the top paid?
    Of the TOP RANKED centers, 8 of the top 12 were drafted in either the first or second round.
    Lol, “top paid”

    Frazier would be a great pick. Always love it when O linemen have a wrestling background
    Offensive line is a must. We need to draft a center and a left guard.
    And noone would the Ben or Sua solved any Oline problems.
    Ben is a Trex. 3rd shortest arms in league history.
    Thats a problem.
    Sua is strong. Lead feet. Couldnt start for the Eagles.
    Both are good guys, hard workers, and improved our backups.
    But both are still backups.

    Dean is soft.

  4. Capt Ahab Says:

    The game of football is won and lost in the trenches. The team that controls the line of scrimmage usually prospers.

  5. Capt Ahab Says:

    Have to disagree with one of the podcasters here, the play of the offensive line is crucial to the success of the offense. Winning the turnover battle is crucial to the success of the football team.

    Powers may be falling to the 2nd…which is where I originally had him. So trade back I guess 😉

    I think I nailed my 4 round mock..

  8. Mr. Editor Says:

    The Bucs might be doing Hainsey a favor by drafting a Center and moving him to Guard. It seems that the average salary of Guards is much higher than Centers. The advantage for the Bucs is that they have yet another o-lineman who has been cross-trained at two different positions along the line. I totally agree with Lee that a Center should not be drafted in the first round.

    Edge Rush. Edge Rush, Edge Rush…..then suggest we draft Penix to sit on the bench for a couple of years…….absurd.

    When drafting, we need to look at the players who left……White, Davis, Gage….so I wouldn’t be opposed to replacing them.

    We need to help our offense……G/C, 3rd WR, RB, TE

    I wonder how many fans watch player tape vs just believing guys are good based on media rankings?

    For instance, JPJ. Fans are hyped about this guy. Why? Jensen, Goedeke, Mauch are seriously mean maulers. JPJ and Barton are technique finesse. Not Licht’s type. Latu is a Hall clone. Big, can move, but has little skill. Chop’s tape looks exactly like Shaq. Now that’ll get Licht’s attention. You can also compare against Verse and Van Pran. The Bucs should go all in on Verse and don’t be surprised if Van Pran is your new Center drafted in R2. A total Licht guy.

    My point is: When you hear a name, go watch tape. It’s easy and it’ll give you a real perspective.

    The Bucs need the most help on both lines. Offensive and defense.

    Same as it ever was.

    But you don’t over reach for a sub par edge rusher just b/c you naively believe that centers shouldn’t be drafted in the 1st round (even though 8 of the top 12 rated centers in the league, were either drafted in round 1 or 2).

    They are both areas of need. So where ever the best player / best value aligns with a need, that’s who you take.
