Could be a solid WR prospect, but he is not what the Bucs need IMO.  Gotta go free agency for a WR.

Pretty much.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

I highly doubt anyone on the Bucs staff is discussing draft priorities with Mr. King.

TJ Graham - NC State.  Looked very athletic, agile and smooth in the combine drills.

"...After showing some sudden speed at the Senior Bowl, N.C. State's T.J. Graham (5-11, 188) ran a fast time with a 40 in 4.41 seconds. He is a special-teams contributor who could be a slot weapon in the NFL. Graham looks like a possible rewarding pick on the third day of the 2012 NFL Draft..."



T.J. Graham Scouting Report T.J. Graham - North Carolina State (HT: 5-11⅜ - WT: 182) 
Positives -- A true big play threat, only had 46 catches this year but four of them went for over 60 yards a piece... Great vertical speed, has elite long speed to get behind the defense, former track guy... Good initial burst and acceleration... Good boundary receiver with nice body control to get his feet   
 
down... Excels running vertical routes down the field... Although not tall, he does a good job of tracking the deep ball and can go up and get it... Does a nice job of catching with his hands and secures the football before heading up field... Runs low to the ground, tough to bring down after the catch... Has decent leaping ability and is a terrific overall athlete... Has added value as a kick and punt returner, is the ACC's career leader in kickoff return yards... Has good upside with his speed if he refines his game a bit.
Negatives -- Faded down the stretch this year, had a strong bowl game outing, but in his last eight regular season games, had a total of 20 catches for 213 yards and one touchdown... Inconsistent player who can disappear during games, had six games as a senior with two or less receptions... Never dominated ACC play; prior to his senior year, he never had more than 25 catches or 320 receiving yards in a season... Undersized, has a weak frame, can get pushed around... Has just average lateral quickness and doesn't cut very well, is more of a straight line runner... Raw route runner who rounds his cuts and needs to refine his short routes... Lack of strength will be an issue as a run blocker... Struggles with press coverage, can get shoved off his route... During his sophomore season he suffered a season ending stress fracture in his leg.

 

At North Carolina State -- (Official School Bio) 2010: Has tallied 2,167 yards in career kickoff returns, the best mark in school history and fifth-best in ACC history... Set that school mark with 100 yards on five returns in the win over North Carolina... Had perhaps the biggest play in that Wolfpack win, returning a kick 87 yards for a touchdown to give NC State its first lead of the game... That tied as the third-longest punt return in school history... Named the ACC Specialist of the Week for the UNC game... Has 3,299 all-purpose yards for his career, the 13th-best mark in school history... Pulled down a career-high six catches for a career-high 96 yards and a career-best two touchdowns against Western Carolina... Had six receptions of 20+ yards in 2010... Competed with the NC State track squads during the spring, he qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships in two sprint events, earning second-team All-America honors. 2009: Had his season cut short when he suffered a stress fracture in his leg at Boston College... Started three of the seven games in which he saw action... Scored his first career receiving touchdown in the win over Gardner-Webb... Had seven kickoff returns for 202 yards, including a 93-yard touchdown, versus Duke... That yardage total was a single-game record for a Wolfpack player... Despite missing five whole games, his 574 KOR yards ranked as the eighth-best mark in school history. 2008: An honorable mention All-ACC performer as a kick returner... Ranked fifth in the ACC (29th nationally) in kick return average with a 25.1 mark... Ranked sixth in the ACC in all-purpose yards with 108.1 yards per game - he tallied 1,405 yards for the season... That single-season mark ranked eighth in school... His 1,028 yards in kickoff returns is the school record for a single season... Tallied 22 returns for 628 yards in the first six games of the season, 19 for 400 in the last seven games.


Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Nothing too impressive, seems to create good separation but it's really just zone exploitation.

I could see this as a pick in the later rounds:  http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=72582&draftyear=2012&genpos=OT

BTW, how far is Travis Benjamin predicted to drop back? That dude lit UP the 40...
He definitely did, but he was terrible in the gauntlet. I think Wright could be there when we pick in round 2, hopefully we'll grab him. Anyone who's watched him knows he plays faster than what his 40 time suggests.

If the guy drops to the 3rd round then sure. He can compete with Brisco, Parker and Sammy for a roster spot. Anything before the 3rd round is unacceptable to me.

IF the Bucs and Schiano actually said they want Sanu, I can guarantee that Sanu will not be in Tampa next year.

Im willing to bet neither said something like that.

This story is IMO pure speculations with the only reason being that Schiano was the Rutgers head coach last season.

i completely agree that schiano wants sanu.  i bet he wants luck too.  and claiborne.  and trent richardson.  and matt kalil.  and on and on.  what i dont believe is that shiano would think he "needs" sanu.

If Sanu fell to the 3rd round, then I would gladly pick him up in a heartbeat. Second round however....HELL NO.

Sounds like pure Peter King speculation. Absolutely no substance to it other than the fact that Schiano was his coach.

That's exactly how I read it too. Wouldn't surprise me if he's right, but I see nothing definitive here.

I wouldn't waste the third on him...his overall value is probably 2-3rd rd..but not to us...the WR group needs a legit #1...not another prospect. Our 3rd needs to be used on a player who has the real potential to win a starting job and play well from the get go..and in this years draft..it will be very likely to find a starter (split starter)at OLB, OT, C, CB, RB, or maybe even S.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.
