    Another nice addition since Smith won’t be around much longer. Also like the FB addition…although I still believe we should’ve kept Iosefa last year

      Living in Hawaii I have seen what Iosefa can do with his his deceptive speed, quickness, and power. I agree with you. Vitale is a great pick however.

      Yes, when we put Losefa on the PS I knew someone would get him and New England did it quickly. That’s on you Lovie!!!

    So Far I think Tampa did very well.They have all there 2017 draft picks in tacked.Plus QB Mike Glennon will b/up Jameis Winston and next year one of those other qb will move into b/u in 2017 season. Iam looking forward to see what draft College Free Agents will come to Tampa I give an A+ because Tampa got the best kicker in college ever.They got the Corner and De available.Go Bucs

      George they get a B+ instead of an A because of the kicker.

        I’ll take that grade because we all will be laughing a couple years from now about how glad we were to get him with our 3rd and a 4th round pick.

        Grading Drafts as soon as Mr Irrelevant is chosen is almost as stupid as the endless mocks. None of us knows how this class will pan out; so to either overly praise or criticize at this point is ridiculous.

        I know you don’t like the kicker choice because you are of the opinion he could have been selected later. Maybe, but I knew we didn’t want to go through another year of Connor Barth. I’m over the mediocre kicking since Automatica. You should be too.

    Glad we got some depth at LB; I’m thinking he will get to play in several games not including Special Teams which he’ll be in some of those situations too. Good solid pick. Go Bucs!

    I don’t know, a 4.70 is slow for an outside linebacker. I just hope he had some pebbles or something in his shoes when he ran his 40 times. Hopefully he is one of those guys who plays much quicker.

    Bond is going to be the SAM if he sticks. Don’t expect to see him running down the field in coverage. He is strictly a downhill run stopping LB and a pretty good rush LB as well.
