This guy reminds me of a young T.O. I believe that he will be a stud at the NFL level with the DBs being so bad these days.

Freeman needs someone like this who is a legit threat anytime he gets his hands on the ball!



Actually I like the QB Wedden too...

We'll have to lose the rest of our games if we want a shot at Blackmon.  I'm actually terrified that the Panthers will get him.  How'd you like to see the Newton/Blackmon connection for 10 years?  Ugh.

The Panthers will likely finish with a better record than the Bucs.   I don't think you need to worry about them getting him.

If we draft him and we still have the exact same coaching staff next season we would probably ruin his career. We'd be running him on 3 yard checkdowns all game.

It won't mean crap if the ball isn't being thrown down field.

The Bucs are really in a bad spot. If they draft a guy like this, somebody's talent (Benn or MW or Briscoe or multiple of the above) gets wasted. OTOH if you trade say a Benn, you don't get good return on your investment. I mean what can you get for him? A fifth, maybe? Not enough. Briscoe's talent has barely been touched and you have to give MW time to try and bounce back from a bad year after his sensational 2010. And what about Parker?
I suppose a player for player deal (where we get a running back) is the BEST case scenario (Benn for somebody else's under-utilized RB). But passing a Burfict or Teo would be bad.
Bad spot.

I am open to taking a WR.  It's just one of many needs for this team.  Most here will disagree with us because we have already invested some picks in the position but if you look around the league and be objective there isn't too many WR corps worse than ours.  And a 2nd and a 4th isn't really a major commitment to the position.

Great talent, we need offensive line much more. That will help everything on offense...

We need to draft an offensive coordinator.

The bottom line is the Bucs need dominating players. If Blackmon is a dominating player, you take him.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

I agree. But it's not often you get to choose between multiple dominating players. Most of the time you only have access to one or two, so you have to be prepared to find that one player regardless of position.

I think Blackmon is a good talent and will be a starter at the NFL level but "dominating" I don't know.  I don't think he is even as good a prospect as Dez Bryant.

true.  then its a tough decision.  best available...or best available at a position of need.  i dont believe a stud WR or stud RB will help us much with what our OL gives us.

Benn is a poor man's Blackmon. Wish Olson would just give the guy a chance...that being said if he's there he is an elite receiver. There are 2 other solid #1 receivers too, Alshon Jeffrey and Michael Floyd. I would prefer Floyd or Blackmon over Jeffrey. Floyd has a very good burst and is a big athletic guy. He's also a great blocker. When none of our receivers can get any separation at all it's time to look for a new number 1 (or, maybe more importantly, a new offensive coordinator) so I'm all for drafting a receiver early if the right one is there when we're on the clock. Help Freeman develop by any means necessary.
