I'm not opposed to a 1st round corner. It's just that Kiffin has been able to do great things with corners drafted in later rounds. So I wonder if we use the pick on someone else at another position, and grab a corner in 2 or 3?
I think the value may be in having a corner who can also return kicks.

well we agree on Merling.  I like the Flacco pick as I see him being probably the 2nd best QB in this draft, maybe even better then Brohm.(IDK what it is about Ryan, I just think he'll be a bust and a half)

We also agreed on Lowery.  I dont know too much about Avery, but judging by the WRs left, he's the best one left IMO.

I also am not too sure about back-to-back CBs.  I understand 3 of our guys will have expired contracts next off-season, but I thnk well resign Buch and still have Barber around.

Plus you figure this year, we wont carry Barber, Buch, Wilson, Davis, Williams, Lowerey, and Cox.  I think we'll keep 5 CBs...

Not a bad draft though, Im a big fan of defense and love the possibility of getting that QB of the future...

Im sorry about my hatrid towards drafting WRs...it's just Anthony, Green, Clayton, and Stovall really made me skeptical...

Why Rucker in the 4th or at all Yucc? Johson,Flacco and Blake would have been better picks in the 4th IMHO.

Cason is not bad but Merling may be too good to pass up to form bookeneds with Gaines.

Not bad job at all, not sure the bucs will take a TE with troupe, gilmore, and smith on the roster already, but you never know.

I don't think cason is a bad pick tho, he fits this system amazingly and is a high character guy.  Merling isn't a bad pick, but his sports hernia is hurting his stock and the bucs may go the safe route with the first pick and not take a guy that is already having an injury

Merling has health issues, The thought on Rucker is that he can help in the passing game, While Flacco or Johnson would have been the pick if I was online. I sent in a list of names to the person running the draft, while I should have numbrered them in the order i preferred I didnt and he gave me Rucker

I would have been all over Chris Williams. No way you can go 5 rounds without a single player with his hand on the gorund.

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

not bad...if the draft went that way, I would have selected...

1st round-DE Phillip Merling, Clemson
-We didn't really do anything to improve our pass rush on the defensive line.  Adding Douglas was good for run stopping, but the Bucs will address the defensive line in the draft and Merling would be a nice compliment to Adams, not to mention White, Carter, and Douglas mixing in.

2nd round- [Trade our 2nd(52 overall-380 pts), 4th round(116th overall-62 pts), and QB Chris Simms for Viking's 2nd(43rd overall-470 points) and 6th round(173rd overall-22 pts)]
Selection: QB Brian Brohm, Louisville

-I believe Brohm is the best QB in this draft and could be the answers to our prayers.  He was a projected late first round pick and if he drops this far, I think the Bucs have to make a move to get him.  I don't believe that McCown is the answer and see him fairing no better then Simms or Grads did.  Garcia is the man, but at 38 years old, he doesnt have many years left and both he and Griese would be good mentors to Brohm.
-I believe the Vikings would do this trade as they acquire an extra pick along with a possible QB answer by moving down just 9 selections.  Simms may be done here, but Brad Childress may see something he likes to resurrect the young QBs career.

3rd round-DT Frank Okam, Texas
-The Bucs shyed away from going after a DT after the re-signing of Haye, but I still think they will look for a guy to mix in with Haye and Hovan.  I think Sims and Peterson will battle each other for the final DT spot, but I believe Okam at 347 lbs could be a good clog in the middle.

TRADE: QB Luke McCown to Baltimore for their 5th round pick 140th overall
Selection: OT Barry Richardson, Clemson

-With the drafting of Brohm along with Garcia and Griese ahead of him on the depth chart, McCown becomes expandable.  We select the 6 foot 7 tackle as depth for this year, but he could suprise and complete our youthful offensive line project.  I know many don't want to part ways with McCown, but having 4 QBs does us nothing.  By Baltimore getting McCown, they could provide competition and makes McNair's salary expandable.

5th round-CB Dwight Lowery, San Jose
-I agree with that pick.  Good value there and the Bucs need CB security with Bucchanon, Wilson, and Davis all having expiring contracts next off-season.  Lowery wouldn't get much playing time this season and could end up like Alan Zemeitis, but the Bucs can't pass this value up.

6th round(acquired from Minnesota)-RB Anthony Alridge, Houston
-He's a small back, but he's quick and could be a possible answer to our kick returning troubles.  He won't take carries away from Graham, Dunn, Bennett, or even Caddy; but he will be a body in camp that could make the team as the returner.

So in review:
1. DE Phillip Merling, Clemson
2. QB Brian Brohm, Louisville
3. DT Frank Okam
5. OT Barry Richardson, Clemson
5. CB Dwight Lowery, San Jose
6. RB Anthony Alridge, Houston

I think all of the players, with exception to Alridge would make the team.  I can even see him making it as a KR, but I think that would be a good draft.

well 1VA Bucs Fan...you won't really find playmakers on offense in the draft.  I dont think we will draft an RB or TE due to the depth we have there, so I guess your talking about WR.  The only WR i like in this draft is WR Devin Thomas.  I was originally thinking of trading up for him, but we'd have to give up a 3rd and I wouldn't do that.  As for DeSean Jackson, not a big fan of drafting that high for basically a kick returner.  I dont mind Limas Sweed but he's gobbled up at 14.  Devin Thomas is the only guy I'd like, but I wouldn't trade a 3rd to get him.

We'll have to sign another vet WR.  Honestly a 3rd round WR or 4th round WR would not put the production up that Michael Clayton has done the past few years, so unless we get them in the 1st; which is too risky in my opinion, we might as well go with what we got or add a guy like WR Darrell Jackson or maybe our guy WR Keyshawn Johnson..
