Mb Nfl Double Your First Deposit Football Team Vs Bucs Pewter 728x90 Jpg

The Bucs have been hit harder than any other team in the league at cornerback. As such they have added another body to their corner room. The latest edition, is cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson to the practice squad.

An eight year veteran, Wreh-Wilson played for the Atlanta Falcons over the past five seasons. He’s played in 75 career games with 17 starts. Last season with the Falcons he had just nine total tackles, but intercepted three passes and deflected four others. In 245 snaps in 2020, Wreh-Wilson finished with a 63.2 coverage grade per Pro Football Focus. The season prior his snaps and coverage grade were a bit higher, ending the 2019 season with a 64 coverage grade on 336 snaps.

Another area where Wreh-Wilson could help is on special teams. He has been a 4-phase special teams guy throughout his career. That being said, he has not seen a snap on punt coverage unit in three years. Wreh-Wilson was most recently with the Las Vegas Raiders throughout training camp.

To make room for Wreh-Wilson the Bucs released outside linebacker Elijah Ponder from the practice squad. Ponder spent was resigned to the team in September after spending time with the Green Bay Packers. The 23-year old made the switch from defensive tackle to outside linebacker during training camp, and showed promise. Ponder is ultra-physical with good pop in his hands and better dip around the edge than expected

Other than putting a body on the field, this doesn’t help too much. Over the last few years, one of the worst teams, even worse than the Bucs at covering the pass, were the Atlanta Falcons. Who knows, maybe he was a good player in a bad system? I hope so…

The Falcons have had a weak and anemice pass rush for the last five or sx years. Despite that, they rarely ever draft a defensive lineman high.They drafted one edge rusher high and he had one solid year but he is out of the league now. The reason the Bucs are rated so low in pass defense is because other teams don’t try to run on them and go to a quck short passing game instead in order to negate the pass rush. Very tough to sack an NFL QB on a 3 step drop. Geeeeeesh. Is this making sense… Read more »

Unfortunately, none of that counts into the stats and rankings. At the end of the day, you are what you are, and the Falcons, as well as the Bucs, have been teams in the bottom against the pass over the last few years (probably longer). Maybe you should contact the league office, tell them your philosophy, then ask them to start putting an asterisk next the rankings so fans can know who the real league leaders are against the pass?

Career has been just a reliever type guy. Didn’t start much in his career. Avg. DB but he is a body. And that seems to be what we need in the defensive backfield.

We wouldn’t have to be in this mess scouring the waiver wire or combing through the loading docks at UPS if we had drafted a DB instead of a Cheese Royale in the second round.
What a terrible waste of a second round. You would have thought Licht had learned his lesson with Roberto Aguay but nooooooo, he seems to have some suicidal need to show all the other front office types how smart he is, only to have it blow up in his face like one of JPP’s fireworks.

Dr.D: You’re starting to resemble a few other now departed commenters who just repeated the same worn out narrative over and over and over. As I replied in one of your earlier “Quarter Pounder” remarks; we have no idea if the Bucs would have selected a CB and certainly no idea if, given past failures, said CB would have been any better than “Toast” Jones (I’m sure you remember him), Sabby Piscatelli, VH3 or that CB drafted before Davis that I can’t remember his name. I agree with most of your football related points and I understand the logic of… Read more »

The second round CB in 2018 was M.J. Stewart. Guess there’s no guarantee of success. Might not even be as good as Dee Delaney.

There was another guy who had a big problem with Luke Stocker. He used to swear up and down that Stocker could never play for another NFL team because no one would want him. Of all the Buc problems at the time, that was what he was laser focused on. That was like six years ago and Stocker is on his second or third team. Good blocking TE who rarely makes mistakes. Maybe BucAssBob went to the Nathan Bedford Forest Memorial Gardens to take a long enternal nap.

You’re thinking about Jon Gruden (poster not ex-coach). He was relentless in his criticism of Luke Stocker, who had a relatively long NFL career and might even still be playing. When Stocker was drafted in the 4th round, I thought at the time he would be the best one of the class. Turned out I was right for a change.

I’m looking forward to the day Trask proved to be the future starter. And no CBs were worth the 2nd round grade at the time. I’m glad they picked Trask. Also, we are still 5-1 while missing our starting CBs and about to get em all back. Looks like we’re doin pretty good.
