    What about switching picks 9 for 8 and a third from Cleveland? Extra pick and Cleveland could definitely be taking a similar player as we would want

    Fab1-…as long as the piss in his Cheerios doesn’t violate any banned substances- I’m glad it motivates him!
    Looking forward to a 16 game season from him w/ playoffs on the line again

    Thanks Scott.
    1) I agree on getting rid of Glennon now…let’s be honest, if Winston geos down, Glennon (while capable) is not going to lead us through the playoffs or anything.

    2) on our bets drafts….notice how all of them involved either multiple 1st round picks, or basically a 1st round pick plus one of the top couple in the 2nd round…I’ll say it again “the probability of getting good talent decreases with every pick in the draft – we want more higher picks, not more lower picks”

      EastEndBoy I agree on both points made, especially the 1st one. I was just about to type the same thing. Of course if Glennon isn’t capable of leading us through the playoffs why would anyone give up a high draft pick for him? Which is probably why Licht hasn’t traded him yet. He’s probably not getting offers that are higher than a 4th round pick which is why he hasn’t traded him. Hopefully the offers get higher before or after the draft because A) I would love to gain an extra valuable draft pick and B) I am absolutely sick of hearing about Glennon and sick of watching him play football in a Bucs uniform.

        Ya – I hear on ya the expectation of Glennon’s value. My only thought was that while I don’t think he could step in and lead us through the playoffs, if you’re John Elway you might consider that he was good enough to lead Denver through the playoffs (I mean the remains of Peyton was able to do it…surely Glennon is as good as whatever version of Peyton that was last year)…so maybe Denver (or a team on the immediate verge like that might consider Glennon more valuable than we do)…but still I think he’s at very very best a 2nd rounder, and probably more like a 3rd plus a 6th or something…of course I would throw him in (like a bag of used footballs) to whatever deal we could work out for Wilkerson 🙂

          I would take Glennon over Oswiler, or Sanchez any day. If Denver was smart, they would too.

    I like your picks!! You wonder sometimes if they don’t show interest in a player just to throw off other teams perception. GM’s like to play these mind games. Go Buc’s.

    Another enjoyable Fab 5! Totally agree with your Fab 2, trade Mike now while the iron is HOT! As always I hope the BUCS trade down for more picks in this deep defensive draft, In Licht we trust! In the home stretch for the draft, and look forward to seeing Licht’s picks and/or moves. Go BUCS

    I LOVE Karl Joseph. Just because they have not visited with him does not mean they aren’t interested. Sometimes you can tell all you need to know about a guy by making a few calls and just seeing what he has done throughout his college career. I could not find the list of visits from last year, but in 2014, we only drafted two players that we visited with prior to the draft. I think you would be better off guessing players that we haven’t visited with that seem like guys Jason Licht would obviously like…Joseph looks like the Kwon Alexander of the Safety position, so I refuse to believe there is not some interest there.

    Also, I would really love to see us trade back in the first…as far as possible…and take either Noah Spence or Karl Joseph there. I would rather see us address receiver early than I would cornerback. Sterling Shepard is going to be an absolute stud, we need an elite route runner like that in this offense. Go get em JL!

    Scott I love the draft picks they all fits the bucs. I believe if Tampa could trade down to #15 with tenn Tampa may still get one of the prise CB or Safety. and pick up a 3rd &4th or 5th Tampa would be set. Plus trade Qb that would be a great draft. Go Bucs

    I think the Bucs will end up moving Glennon on draft day. If the Jets are involved, I have a hard time thinking that Wilkerson wouldn’t be involved in that trade. I think Denver is crazy not to be trading for him. Cleveland is simply to incompetent to trade for a solid QB. As a ‘Canes fan, I wouldn’t go to sleep on safety Deon Bush. He’d be a great late round pick up. It’s been a terrible year for musicians… Must be one hell of concert coming up in the sky.

    Your 1st 3 rounds in the mock are spot on. I think we would be extremely ecstatic if thats how the draft unfolded. The only exception is that I would attempt to trade Glennon and maybe next years 1st for Wilkerson. In your mock we still have added an immediate impact pass rusher as Javon Hargreaves prob wont be ready to step in and play right away as he adjusts to the speed of the game. So trading for Wilkerson or swallowing our pride and revisiting the Greg Hardy situation would be needed to complete the defensive line.

      The only problem with the thought giving up our No. 1 usually bites us in the ass as the player selected with our draft pick goes on and has a good to great career. Only the Gruden trade was worth it and he wasn’t a player. Also Al Davis was usually a lousy draft selector so it didn’t hurt us.

        I personally would take a chance on Hardy unless we could acquire Wilkerson for something less than a 1st even if it’s next year. McCoy needs another body inside which Hargreaves would fit the bill but we need another starter at DE bc I think J.Smith would be better used in a rotation on obvious passing downs to keep him fresh and hopefully have him last the entire season.

    Good Article Scott; lot of thought put in with your Fab 3. I’m not a fan of trading up if it costs us a 1st or 2nd round pick. I see no reason in this draft to move up. I actually hope we stand put in rounds 1 and 2 with a BPA picks. I could see us moving back into the very late part of the 2nd round using our 3rd and 4th round picks.
    I just don’t see what many others see in Glennon. He’s proven he’s not a starter; just a solid back up you hope never has to play for more than a game or to just run the clock out in a game. I see no draft value in him this year because he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2017; I just see him as an opportunity to move up several spots in the later rounds.

    Fantastic fab 5 as always. I’m glad to hear Kwon is psyched up, we need some extra fire on defense. I have a feeling Glennon will be traded on draft day. If we can get a second, you take it, no matter the slot.
    Those top three picks in your mock are perfect to me and I would be hard pressed to be happier. I am a huge fan of William Jackson as well and think he’s clearly the best cover corner in this draft. And the more I reads about Joseph and watch his highlights, the more I like this guy.
    Excellent read as always, I’m ready for this draft to get here already.

    Could you imagine if Myles Jack fell to us at 9, then matching him up with LD and Kwon? That would be a nightmare linebacking core for any team to face. From the looks of Jack’s workout videos, I think his knee looks fine. It is probably nothing more than mis-information propaganda.

    I saw Prince back in 1984 for the “Purple Rain” Tour, and it was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. He was a true showman.

    I’ve worked in a studio with a guy who was in Prince’s band for the last few years and he told me how Prince was a perfectionist. If anyone, including himself (Prince), missed a note, or a beat, during a show they would be fined. He said Prince never forgot who did, and the exact note they missed. He would call them out the moment they did it on stage telling them “$500.” Or he would call himself out telling the band that he owes $500. He was a musical genius.

    A very good Prince song that often gets overlooked and left off ‘favorites’ lists, probably because of it’s provocative lyrics, is “Erotic City.” This song blended pop, punk, funk, and soul, and was always a party favorite for me. RIP Prince, the music industry took a hard hit with this loss!

      I’m also intrigued by what Mike Smith may be able to do with Miles Jack. I know some here will say we don’t need a LB. But no one can argue that we do need as many standout players as we can get. Few true top ten players this year but Miles Jack might be one of them.

        Scu- I’m with you. I think Myles jack if available should be our pick.

    Looking at the highlights of Karl Joseph how could you not be impressed unless you think he is going to be flagged for personal fouls the way he hits.

    BTW, hope we get Javon Hargraves in 3rd. He is actually a little bigger than Sheldon Rankins.
