I just don't see the high risk with Clayborn.

I'm hoping we continue to make the medical staff earn their paycheck and take Marcus Cannon, Greg Romeus, Mark Herzlich, and some other risky picks just for the helluva it.  Also, it makes Cyber and Java whine some more.

Java will whine about everything unless we take some girly man.

You can definitely see how much thought was put into their draft plans. Identify an area of need and then stockpile players to take care of it. Move onto the next area either in later rounds or next year. Building a very solid team in Tampa and it's exciting to be a Bucs fan.

No. All draft picks and FA have risk, but they are not all high risk. We went all boom or bust in the first two rounds. Hopefully our gamble pays off, but we definitely took on more risk than normal.
If you look at it, even if both picks bomb Bucs still have a decent young team and plenty of draft picks for the future unlike NO/ATL.  Our window is just opening, now's a good time to take some risks when the reward could be a top 5 dline for the next 5-6 years. 

It's not subtle, but I've always liked the shotgun approach when you're committed to improving a specific area.  Chances are high that at least two of the DL we've picked over the last two years will become studs.

I just don't see the high risk with Clayborn.

With any other RE prospect, if they end up being a solid run stuffer but can't get the pressure you them too....you can move them to LE and still have a solid player. Clayborn will either be great at RE or he will be a bust. That's risky.

With that said I'm over my negative feelings. Clayborn and Bowers are Bucs now and I love them both. I hope they both kick ass for us. Character wise I already love both of these kids. Now I hope they make me love their game too.

These picks are no more risky than the 5+ 1-3 round picks we've wasted since 2007. There was 0 chance of Dexter Jackson, Arron Sears, Michael Clayton, Maurice Stovall, Barret Ruud, Chris Colmer and about 10 others becomming top 10 at their position in the NFL. At least with Bowers and Clayborn, both have the potential to be studs. I'll take that risk all day given the possible rewards.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are building a super bowl contender, and depending on how things go in camp, preseason (injuries), and regular season (gradual/rapid improvement) i can see the Tampa Bay Bucs doing something we've only done once before .

BIG MAC AND BIG SACK!

Now let's carry it over into Free Agency (whenever that may be).  We still have questions to be answered about our MLB and CB positions.

Agree except for Arron Sears. He was a stud LG as a rookie and had all-pro written all over him until he went AWOL.
