The Bucs need a decent C too.

So far so good for Thomas, he got that DE completely turned around and standing straight up at the line of scrimmage

I'd rather go FA for a Center since they make the calls and experience is crucial.

The big key is his wingspan. Also, I have been watching this game. This guy is good. He has amazing technique. He gets his hands on the defender and manhandles them. He only has let a DE get near the QB once and he stayed between the DE and the QB and made the DE run by and the QB stepped up. Unfortunately for Wisconsin...the RT blew his block and the QB was sacked.

That's what I was thinking, too. I saw his wingspan and was amazed. But I was even more awestruck by his technique and footwork. While the rest of the line is getting their manhood stolen he's treating his responsibility like he stole something. IMO this guy is going to be a beast at the next level... hopefully donning the pewter and red.

A very long time to keep your fingers crossed isn't it Dal. 

Supposing the bucs do get Thomas, I still think they need to get a FA center - folks keep mentioning Steinbach but I don't know enough about him - but the bucs need someone that can make line calls and block.  Then they have a full boat of NFL talent - would be nice to get an OL coach who can make it all work. 

Ohara is an option as well.  And yes a good OL coach would help too.

Looks like we're going to need a Center who can do the shotgun.
