    Don’t know anything about this guy, but adding depth to the OL is always a good thing.

      I like this player.With the offense line now with this player from Ucla he can learn in a backup role this year. I believe that he has a lot of raw talent
      hats off to the bucs offensive line staff-Go Bucs

    Still need a burner WR, a SAM, and a DT. That’s 3 players, but we only have 2 picks left since we wasted a pick on a kicker.I wouldn’t even pick Lou “The Toe” Groza that high! Trade Glennon and get a pick. Otherwise, we will have to go FA for the SAM. DT and speed WR should be drafted.

      I think you’re under shooting just how much they like what they have at receiver. I think they believe Kenny Bell will take a big step this year. I was actually hoping they were going to go after the German guy, but Minnesota picked him right before us.

      They did take a SAM: Devante Bond from Oklahoma.

        Now that the draft is over (actually before it was over) I agree with you guys. I think they were comfortably with the guys they had. The only area that concerns me is DT as we are very thin there. My thoughts are that the DT position is very deep and according to Mayock some FA DTs this year would normally go in the 5th or 6th most years, so I think they are going to add some tonight.

      We have Bell back and they seem pretty high on Humphries and Dye so I think we may stick with what we have at WR

      Apparently you think the Draft is seeking pieces to a puzzle and not acquiring more talented players to contribute on game day. Surely you recall the 40 year search for a kicker that, with the exception of Gramatica (3rd rounder) and a handful of others who were short-lived, we have trotted out a such a collection of mediocre kickers so often that we now think misses that cost us two or three games a year are commonplace. You and I both experienced “Capece is kaput” and the most replayed blooper of of all time with Neil O’Donnohue and Dave Green chasing the ball. Don’t you want to have a good kicker just once before we “cross the creek”?

        Wow, what a trip down memory lane. Thanks for the nightmares scubog. lol. Your point is well taken.

    Good pickup….versatile.

    Good choice and I believe he will help us this year and be startable material if Damar decides to go elsewhere after this year. Go Bucs!
