The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have drafted Missouri defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. with the 215th overall pick in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL draft.

At 6-foot-4, 295 pounds Beckner is ideally built for the 3-technique position but has versatility and, depending on the finalized roster come September, could find himself as a depth guy on the Bucs defensive line.

A four-year player at Missouri, Beckner had career-highs with 11 tackles for loss in both his junior and senior season, but regressed from seven sacks in his junior year to 3.5 sacks in 2018.

Beckner’s Career Defensive Stats:
2015: 27 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 1 FR.
2016: 24 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 FR.
2017: 35 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 7 sacks, 1 INT.
2018: 34 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, 1 FF.

Finally! We finally drafted McCoy’s replacement! Who knew you could find a starting 3-tech in the 6th round?

Kid has a fast get off. Literally looks like GMC but wonder how that will work on the NFL level talent.

Really tough big guy that plays with an attitude. He has had 2 serious knee (acl/mcl) injuries but has fully recovered from both. Injury is something to watch for, but we will like this guy’s motor and hard-nosed play.

Watched his tape against Florida in 2018. He took a lot of plays off – so I don’t see a consistent football motor. He also splashed on some plays. Good gamble.

Looks like a high motor get after it guy! I like this pick…better than the Gay pick! Will be really interesting if these young blood drafted players can contribute to the roster and add some “dog” to this defense!

I like Beckner. I wonder if he can win a roster spot because the thought of Roach being the primary backup at either DT spot is lol.

Ohhhh man, move over McCoy! We found ourselves a real stud here I bet.

So this basically means we’re forced to keep McCoy right? Not that I dislike the player but something has to give here. Licht realizes this right?

Last season, I sat with my brother who is a Jags fan watching my Bucs. And he said, Man..your secondary and overall Defense is slow. Well, evidently, our new coaches thought that too because they went for Defensive speed in this draft. And a linebacker who runs and tackles better than Brooks did. Our selected D-backs are much quicker. So..we shall see. maybe my Brother..was right!

Only observation – McCoy has not been cut/traded yet, and unless the sun shines, the bird sing, etc.; however we’re drafted a replacement for next year. Assuming the rumors hold true, we have Allen if we cut him and this kid and a couple of free agents in the 4/3 sets which will be utilized if not emphasized. Although I was sure he would be gone by now, the Bucs need to free up enough salary cap space to cover their overage, along with the signing pool. I think we still have McCoy in the bank as a possible post-draft… Read more »

dbenn, if 93 is here this coming season, he might be better utilized as a 5, not a 3, despite what is being said. Maybe Tuikolovatu is finally ready for snaps, if so, in the 3-4, McCoy(5-tech), Stevie T(NT), Vea(3-tech). The a big, strong duo up the middle. With David and White behind those two, good luck to opposing o-lines in blitz packages. Sadly, though, probably won’t happen. Gerald makes the most sense as a cap casualty.

3,5,7,9. Guys, there is not going to be a position for Gerald McCoy this year. The Bucs are switching to a 3-4 scheme. Three down lineman, four LBs. One tackle, two defensive ends. Do the math. Vita Vea will be the lone DT and he has the build for it. No more McCoy. No more being okay with losing as long as I play well and did my part. No more apologizing to the QB after you hit him and no more rudderless, so called leadership and preseason speeches filled with empty promises. Every year we kept hearing about how… Read more »

I like this pick, he plays with nastiness and brings attitude, he played in the SEC and Missouri has been successful putting out Dlineman. Even though he is a 7th rd pick I think he will make the roster and see playing time.

What I think, is McCoy stays on the team until the season and he will be on the trade block. At some point an injury will happen to another team and they will need a DT, the Bucs will then be able to get a descent trade value for him.

If Stevie K with the new OL Coaches Masters NT the Bucs could use him as Vea’s backup and we could cut Beau Allen and use his cap space and train McCoy as a DE and see what sacks he can get from that position and if he can be developed to also stop the run he could help this year but if not trade him when another team has injuries and makes a good offer for him. I think Beckner has starter capability at DE to replace McCoy when he retires and is a great backup now to spell… Read more »

Its part of light bulbs new strategy – pick a player with worst possible knees. This draft we took 2 guys who could be hobbling around on crutches before preseason starts.
