    An indoor track would’ve been a great addition as it could bring a lot of track athletes to the Bay Area.

    The Cowboys did it with theirs and it’s been a great success for the franchise and the local economy.

    It interesting that everyone on the team is so confident in the O-line, but it was the second position that you thought the team could go after, Trevor? I really hope that the O-line stays healthy this year… So goes the line; so goes the O. Oh, and nice, Destino! “What is this, a practice field for ANTS?!”

      I’m just saying that if the offensive line were to struggled, they’d be the No. 1 priority in the offseason, I think.

    Realized that this got passed on to Trevor from Mark. As to next year’s needs; Why even ask that question at this time frame or even answer it? My question in mailbag would be; how confident are you about two safeties positions.

      Just for this week. Mark is back next week.

    My gawd man, training camp still a month away and you want to talk about the draft.
    How annoying. Give it a rest.
    Please take a vow thatuntil the upcoming regular season is 4 weeks old, there will be no more stupid draft talk or questions allowed.

      I like the NFL.
      I like college football.
      I like the draft.
      I like the entire process.

      It helps preview players to look out for and names to know. Yes, the needs will probably be quite different. But, that’s OK. We can still talk about some of the top players in college football.

    2. 7.2


      It’s also good to know specific players to watch throughout the college season so that you are somewhat educated when it comes to talking about the draft. That way you don’t get caught up in the espn/combine buzz circle and just regurgitate what you’ve heard other people say.

    3. 7.3


      Its the dead part of the off season. Theres nothing to do but speculate, so draft talk is acceptable until something Bucs related actually happens.

  8. 8


    One of the things I would like is to have a narrator over the speaker system informing the crowds of which drills the Bucs are running during training camp and with 99 players before the cut-down, who actually made a play.

    No Fly Zone

    Even if our O-line does good this upcoming season, I could still see Licht drafting a tackle high as Dotson is 31. Defensive end should also be a priority in next year’s draft as Ayers is also 31. Although Mcglinchey is a fine player, I’d rather have his Notre Dame counterpart Quenton Nelson. Slide Pamphile to right tackle and have a interior of Sweezy, Marpet and Nelson. Nasty run blocking.

    I love the NFL. It is my favorite all time league and sport.
    I don’t even care when a player gets arrested for DUI or assault. I never consider it a black eye on the league when a player gets in trouble no more than I think every cop is a killer just because when one gets nervous and shoots a civilian.
    These guys aren’t choirboys so I don’t know why we expect them to act that way when the season is over.
    Let them take their just desserts from the justice system and move on.
    On the other hand, college football has turned into one long sad obscene sick joke.
    About the only college game I watch anymore is the Army/Navy game.
    I would estimate that at least 50 percent of the college football players have less interest in getting an education than my best friends golden retriever.
    It is now nothing more than a very inexpensive cheap minor league farm system for the pros and the NFL owners are laughing all the way to the bank since they don’t have to pay for player development.
    I like the draft to, but not 12 months of it. Speculating about it becomes a bore.

    1. 12.1


      My wife and I went to the Army-Navy game in Baltimore last year. It was on my Bucket List. The actual game was only a part of the great event.

      I must agree with you that forecasting Draft picks 9 months in advance is meaningless.

    ” and Florida’s Duke Dawson could be late-first, early-second round cornerback who fit defensive coordinator Mike Smith’s style. ”

    Trevor, I’m a fellow Gator fan and can’t for the life of me understand what Duke Dawson has done to warrant all of these pre-season All SEC accolades and being projected as an early rd pick. Help computer!

    Scubog, I envy you.
    As everyone in here probably knows, I’m a card carrying liberal but contrary to how many might think, I love our armed forces and I believe our service academy’s are some of the finest educational institutions in the USA.
    Hopefully I will be able to attend this great event one day as well.

    1. 14.1


      “Card Carrying”? Must be an old school liberal. Nowadays it’s big signs and megaphones.

    Thanks Trevor, I for one don’t mind a bit talking about college players of interest. Gives us an opportunity to pay attention to those players during the college football season. Keep it coming!

    Just my personal 2 cents – I hate draft talk this early. Forget the reality that we can’t yet identify team needs. Even more than that, the reality is that draft grades right now are really not even close to what they will be 10 months from now. At this time last year, we felt good at WR and TE (two positions that would become top priorities for us in the 2017 offseason), and we had our most obvious need at safety. Only one of those held up by the time the season ended. Similarly, at this time last year, guys like Carl Lawson (ended up going 4th round), Brad Kaaya (6th round), and Roderick Johnson (5th round) were obvious top 10 picks, and in some cases #1 overall player candidates.

    We know basically nothing about our needs for next offseason right now. And heck, some of those will be filled via free agency. At the same time, we know very little about the 2018 draft prospects as of right now. So what point is there in talking about the draft in JUNE? None. I think you need to wait until at least November, when college players have been able to put down a fair amount of film for their draft year, before even sniffing draft talk. And really, I’d much rather wait until after the season starts, since that’s basically the only thing we’ll talk about for like three or four months. But please, at LEAST wait until the games get going. Maybe a twice weekly feature of a soon to be draft eligible player who impressed that week, or something like that.
