The Bucs have been on a quest to improve their team in the trenches drastically since the end of their 2017 season. So far they’ve signed the likes of Beau Allen, Mitch Unrein, Vinny Curry and Ryan Jensen, as well as traded for Jason Pierre-Paul.

As the team runs through their 30 private visits, it appears they might not be done upgrading the trenches, either. In a report from Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, the team hosted Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey in for a private visit on Tuesday.

Well… If a trade back happens and we do take the likes of McGlincheey. It’s not the worst way to cover a big need which is to figure out what we do at tackle. Dotson who I think is playing at a high level has how many more years? LT is maybe ok and it seems the FO is ok with Smith this year. It may not be a popular pick but cap/longevity could be brilliant. Hey Trevor can he play guard?

I think it depends how far they might trade back. McGlinchey won’t last long. And it might be that Dotson ends up in a rotation if they move Smith to the right side if they were to pick McGlinchey. They still need a Guard, however. If FO trades down and picks up a few picks, they might be able to pull off a stunning draft. But it takes patience and some luck.

We are not as bad at guard as people think, with signing Jensen. Marpet goes back to right guard, and Sweezy kicks over to left guard. Plus Benencoch can possibly play there as well. Keep in mind Sweezy has been battling through injury, and he is finally healthy. So our O-Line should actually be ok. We could maybe take an Alex Cappa or Billy Price in the 4th round.

I like it. Dot could drop off like a rock this season, who knows. I like they’re at least considering an OT. Likely a trade down candidate.

He could be a good player for many years. The Bucs have hardly anyone to backup Smith or Dotson.

At one point, McGlinchey is who I wanted to be the Bucs pick. I even like him better than Nelson. The Bucs need a true LT protecting Winston’s blind side. However, I would only take McGlinchey in a trade down situation now.

Nelson is ready now, and he is special now. McGlinchey has a lot of upside and could become very special, but he is not special yet. At the point where he might be taken, the question is, how does he compare to Hernandez and Wynn. In his draft profile, Donovan Smith was forecast to be a guard in the NFL. McGlinchey moves better than Smith. It would be good to try Smith inside of McGlinchey. I do not think that McGlinchey is strong enough yet to start at guard. As others have mentioned, Dotson will eventually retire. And, Dotson was… Read more »

Terrible pick , if you want to fill the guard position in mid late 1st do it with Wynn.Not try and move tackles around to try and fit.
