Bucs need to trade this pick  to the Dolphins to get another pick.

From NFLdraftcountdown.com

Strengths:
Terrific size and bulk...Excellent timed speed...A natural runner with great instincts and vision....Strong and powerful...Keeps his legs moving on contact and picks up extra yards...Has pretty good hands and can be a weapon catching the ball out of the backfield..More than holds his own as a blocker...Does not have much mileage on his tires...Tough and durable...Smooth and a very good athlete...A hard worker and team player with top-notch intangibles....Still improving and has some upside.

Weaknesses:
Only carried the load for one season...Has some issues with ball security...Is not overly elusive...More quick than fast...Doesn't always play to his timed speed....A between-the-tackles-type who could have trouble turning the corner in the pros.

Notes:
Older brother Walter is also a running back for the Illini...National Top 100 recruit coming out of high school...Backed up Pierre Thomas, who made the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent, the first two years of his college career....One year wonder who took a while to fulfill his potential but really came on as a junior and emerged as a top pro prospect..Has a rare blend of size and speed with all of the physical tools you look for..A workhorse runner and terrific all-around weapon.

I am betting SR was wrong....too many good players and areas of need still on the board.

Trade down with Seattle. You know they want to trade up at this point.
