    Good overviews this year ahead of the draft guys! My preferences (EEB’s Best Bets):
    DE: Orchard
    LB: Dawson
    Safety: Holliman (if we can get him late like your Safety review suggested, that would be great)
    DT: nobody
    CB: if Ekpre-Olomu checked out physically I would take a chance on him late

    QB: either guy, but my heart is with MM
    RB: not this year
    WR: not this year
    TE: not this year
    OL: yes, yes and yes…just keep picking them (but I really like Ogbeuhi which again if your review of OTs right and we can get him in the 3rd round that’s a huge steal)

      oh ya, I also like Odigizahgi or however you say his name from UCLA at DE…

    Well guys are you looking at the offensive Best Bets! Everyone needs to go back and check out what players came for a workout and a visit! There was around 30-35 players. Some didn’t count because of the geographics on the players. You could kind of put your draft boards together and you would see how close they will get the players. Right now we have 8 players. Tampa has a lot of needs, I heard a few hrs ago that there may be a chance that on draft day Tampa could swing a deal to move down and get a good player 6 slots down plus gets a vet rb and a qb plus maybe a whole bunch of draft choices (includes a #1 and a#2 next year. Just because we losed Mariota and Winston, But bringing in another vet qb and draft a future qb in the later rounds. I hope they will look at what Tampa may do. Go Team Go.

    I wonder if Denzel Perryman would be a possibility 2-3? I see that Muhammad Wilkerson is possibly in play? Thoughts about a trade with the Jets? Glennon-for-Wilkerson swap could make for quite a nasty D-line.

    Is it possible Tampa will have two drafts in a row where they only draft players on offense? Lets look at team needs: QB, RG, RT, PR/KR, LG, WR, Backup QB. Looks like yes, they will only draft offense again!

  7. 7


    Here’s my take on any chances of trading down? Neither QB is a can’t miss like Luck. Both are questionable as to success; just my opinion. I have issues with both QB’s, but I would rather take the chance on Winston. There’s so much smoke and mirror’s coing from other teams including the Bucs; so I’ll just go with the flow. I have no clue who they’re taking after Spot 1. Good luck on the guessing; I’m staying away from that subject. Go Bucs!

    I wonder what would happen if Gerald McCoy and Leonard Williams sandwiched Drew Breeze or Matt Ryan? Nice thought. COME ON TAMPA!!! Lets Make It Happen!!! Williams #1

    Mr. Incredible

    Just for the sake of entertainment and because it will give us all the feeling that someone at One Buc has a clue, I hope that they engineer some kind of brilliant trade at #1 that sets us up to draft a bunch of players high and gets us a QB. I just don’t think either QB is “can’t miss” enough for the #1 overall pick.
