McFadden played all zone.
I hope you seriously don't think drafting several day 2-3 CBs to be our starters is a sound plan.
JOSH JOHNSON - PURDUEthe kid has experience playing on an island and is a real solid run defender. would be a great pick in the 5th-6th IMO
I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I don't think the Bucs are as down on the current CBs as the fans are. Obviously, this is total speculation, but I suspect that they know the CBs were put in a terribly difficult position last season and realize that there need to be schematic changes to give them a better chance to succeed.I think that's part of the reason that Ronde Barber talked about how they'd play a more conservative style, more like the Falcons game at the end of the season. [Ronde] implies that the Bucs will see a lot more of how the Buccaneers played in Atlanta at the end of the season. "It can't all be that way. It's just too hard."I suspect that he was told that in discussion of the team's plans for him should he return."Not a lot of teams in this league play that type of defense for a reason. For the reason that it exposes your corners. You're basically playing with half a safety in the box -- kind of in kind of out -- and it's great in the run game, which obviously showed. But teams can definitely pick out their matchup, and if you don't win on the outside it looks pretty bad."There's obviously some concern about the quality of the CBs seeing as how they're trying to bring in Revis, but I think that's because Revis is such a great CB and he'd essentially be replacing Wright. I think the Bucs go CB in rounds 2 & 3 and go into the season with the current CBs and a couple of rookies plus some veterans that get cut between now and September.

It will be interesting to see if Schiano attempts to fix the scheme. If they think that Goldson is going to make this defense successful, they are mistaken. Whoever plays the deep safety position is going to look terrible unless they fix the scheme. That is what Ronde left out of that statement. The defense puts a lot of pressure on the CB's and the deep safety. The scheme as it is will not work. I said during the year last year that even with Revis at CB this defense won't work. Not unless you have 4 pro bowlers in the secondary.
