PewterReport.com had readers prepared for what was going to happen in the 2010 NFL Draft. In Pewter Report's 2010 Bucs Draft Preview digital magazine, three Bucs' Best Bets were drafted by Tampa Bay. Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was the first Bucs' Best Bet to be selected, and the next two came at the wide receiver spot in the next four picks.
