    Drafting Sidney Jones would be a surprise but in line with the taking the best available player on the board.

    1. 1.1


      That would be amazing IMO. Give him a redshirt year as Grimes finishes his contract.

  2. 2


    Let’s get after Safety and/or RB in this round. Would love to snag Mixon and then Melifonwu/Baker.

  3. 3


    Hoping to get Samuel on offense (or Godwin) or Baker/Mayes, Willis/Bowzer on defense. I also really like Walker (DE) and would be happy with that pick.

    But would be pretty much happy with anyone on this list.

    With the Bucs getting Howard , will change their strategy in 2nd round and go D in rd 2. I would love to see Wills fall to us.

  5. 5


    Tons of quality talent still available on Day Two … I tend to think the Bucs will go defense in either or both of rounds two and three .. but then, who knows who’s going to be BPA at 50. Jason might also be tempted to trade up in the second round, but I don’t see him reaching, i.e., not sticking pretty close to the draft matrix values (which the three teams that traded up last night for quarterbacks generally ignored).

  6. 6


    I would like to see a trade down for another 3rd or 4rd pick.

    1. 6.1


      Well Horse, it looks like it is only me and you that like the trade down idea. You are right an extra 3rd or 4th would help more than anyone selected at 50.

      Personally, I want the next pick to be JuJu Smith-Schuster (he is my 2nd favorite WR after Corey Davis).

      I would like the extra pick to justify picking a 2nd TE (Toledo TE Michael Roberts). He is a goal line touchdown machine. How would you like to see Evans, Howard, Brate and Roberts like up in 1st & Goal situation. How would a D be able to cover these 4? The Answer – They Can’t.

  7. 7


    If Obi Melifonwu is on board I’m all over that pick, if not I take Sidney Jones who will come back from that injury and to me was best corner in draft pre injury. Trade back into late second round and take Mack this would be a home run type of draft IMO

  8. 8


    Not sure about the trade down Horse, depends on who is still available and how far the drop is. According to the list above, there are about 20 players that the Bucs apparently like, but by pick 50, almost all of those could be gone. If six/eight of them are still there and we are only moving down a few picks, I’m with ya, but if we are down to 3/4 and we are moving down 10 slots – I think I’d rather take my pick.

    Twenty seems like a lot until you do the math and see that potentially 17 of them could be gone. It’s almost certain 10-12 od them WILL be gone.

  9. 9


    Much as we need help on D, I’m leaning towards a WR at 50. It looks to me like there is a gentle slope of decline between 2nd & 3rd rounds for key defensive positions (CB, S, DL). However, there is a tight group of stellar 2nd round WRs that are going to fly off the board, after which there is a pretty big drop in talent.

  10. 10


    Why no mention of Zay Jones?

  11. 11


    Lets hope the next few rounds work out as well for us as the first ! I would love to see us take corn elder at 50, i watched alot of him and he’s would be perfect as a 3rd CB until grimes is done.

  12. 12


    So many good options out there for us, much like the 1st round. It seems like a win-win for us, if we can win anywhere near as much as we did in the 1st, we’ll be in great shape!

  13. 13


    Cook or Mixon and our offense is set for hopefully a few years. Can’t wait to see who it is!
