The Bucs have traded their number 27 overall pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars. In exchange, Tampa Bay will receive the 33rd, 106th, and 180th pick. Those are in second, fourth and sixth rounds.

beef o bradys

General manager Jason Licht has been known to make multiple trades on draft night. This is the first time, though, that he has traded out of the first round.

It doesn’t come as much of a surprise the way that the board shaped out. Licht said recently that he saw a lot of value in the middle rounds of this year’s draft. Before the trade the Bucs did not have picks in rounds five or six. They get an extra second second and fourth and reacquire a sixth to address multiple areas.

“Good Players In Middle Rounds”

“As you start diving in and doing more and more work, as we have the last couple months, you start to get more and more excited about it,” Licht said a little over a week ago. “That happens every year with the draft. Initially you think, well maybe it’s not going to be as strong, but it does look like a draft [where] there’s going to be some good players in the mid rounds, for sure. There may not be 30 guys that you think are legit first-round picks but there’s going to be a lot of good players in the middle rounds.”

With a majority of the starters back in place, the Bucs are looking to fill some depth on the roster. Those positions include tight end, defensive tackle and cornerback.beef o bradys

Very good value with the trade back. The sweet spot of this draft is rounds 2-5.

Deep breathe. Let the draft play out before you judge if it was a success. Bucs need depth and must have thought the player they wanted would be there a few picks later. I remember when people freaked out about Vea.

It’s not at Spot 27 either. Remember, we need to now find players who can be valuable for our future, but can also get some back up playing time this season. This is how you do it in cap hell.

Stupid and insane. Licht trying to show off again. Every year you see a plethora of players becoming overnight stars from the fifth and sixth rounds. They need to fire this clown. We traded a first round pick for a third, fifth and sixth. Good good. In the sixth round you are picking possible free agents. What a moron.

Seriously???? They got the first pick in the 2nd round, (#33) down only 6 places plus 1st pick in the 4th round (#106) and the 1st pick in the 6th round. (#180) Very good value when most experts believe there is not the high end talent in the latter part of the 1st round.

No, the Bucs traded their 1st Round pick (#27) for a 2nd Round pick (#33), plus the top pick in the 4th Round (#106) and the top pick in the 6th Round (#180). An excellent value trade, especially as it leaves the Bucs with the top picks for Day 2 and Day 3. These are often sought-after picks, that a team might be willing to give up better than average trade value to acquire.

The only meathead and “moron” here is you. Your draft acumen is utter crap. Dude took a late 1st round pick, in a draft filled with mid-round talent and only a handful of true first rounders, and turned it into the first pick of day 2 while adding the 1st 4th round pick and the 1st 6th round pick, giving us talent that is the area of 3rd and 5th round talent, due to the talent depth this year and you think he’s a moron and meathead. Typical projection in my book.

They don’t make this trade if Johnson was still on the board (Jets) even though I liked Devin Lloyd this was a good move. 1st pick tomorrow night and couple 3rd rd picks is a nice haul. Some really good players still left my personal favs: Christian Watson, Nakobe Dean, Lewis Cine, & Desmond Ridder. Go Bucs!

Bucs feel like they will get their man plus some other talent as well. Good move.

I was thinking the Bucs might do the opposite this year with having Brady likely one more year. Would’ve preferred moving up for a shut down corner or an impact safety. I think Licht thought they would get a falling player but none of the targets fell, although I did like Devonte Wyatt, he would’ve looked really good next to Vea.

Either I read the story wrong or it changed. The second, fourth and sixth make a little more sence.Still with Johnson on the board at 26 they should have tried to move up. Jets got a steal. Picking up that sixth round was a waste unless they use it to move up.

You were to intent on criticizing the move and name-calling so you failed to comprehend what I think is an excellent return on investment.

This will allow the Bucs to address the defense and also add some more to the offense.

Bucs still could have gone and got Johnson if they wanted him. They are stuck on JTS. Even if the jets passed on him the Bucs would have traded down. I don’t see JTS meeting the teams expectations.

I actually thought the trade was really good for moving down 7 spots or so at the bottom of the 1st round. We now have the top pick on day 2 and day 3. The 2nd 4th and 6th are top of round. Better value than some others got for moving down for sure.

Sorry bro. You don’t sit all night in this spot and take a RB. Not saying Hall is a bad pick, but this is not the 90s.

Tell that to the Colts. Jonathan Taylor single handedly made the Colts a playoff contender. Even with a QB who played Iike he put 1K on the Colts under 9 win total in the preseason. Breece Hall isn’t just the best RB in this class. He’s the best RB to be drafted in the last 5 years IMO. This offense would be borderline unstoppable with him. Only 2 names I wanna see at 33, are Hall or Dean. They are both arguably top 10 talents, who are 2nd rounders due to playing extremely undervalued positions

Overstated….was hardly single handedly. Colts had one of the best offensive lines in the league and were good enough to make the playoffs two years previous to Taylor being drafted.

No they didn’t. They weren’t even a top 10 ranked OLine last year. They were mediocre In every area humanly possible as a team(passing offense, OLine, pass defense, run defense, and kicking) you take Jonathan Taylor off the Colts last year, and they’re a 6 or 7 win team at absolute best. Not a playoff contender by any means

That seems like a bit of hyperbole, but if he’s all you say, he may be able to equal Curtis Martin.

I like it. Licht likes it because he knows he’s going to need cheap roster spots to dig out of cap hell starting 1 FEB 2023. After about pick #7 (looking at you Fowlclowns), it was a crapshoot. This draft is not top heavy and there are guys still on the board who can start within a season or at least run on the field and be a better option than Cockrell or Desir when Dean pulls his once-a-game flat tire routine. I like Booth, but I’m a homer and Gardner is probably the pick since Licht is apparently a… Read more »

I wouldn’t be surprised if they also trade down in the second, I bet there are a few teams interested in moving up to the first pick. They could drop a few picks and still probably get Hall or someone else they like while adding another pick in the second or third round. Which gives them ammo to move around and get some guys they like. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

If the Bucs can trade down a few spots and still land the DL that they like or a DB, LB, TE, OL that is a win in my book.

I thought this was a good trade. I would strongly consider trading spot 33 down 6-10 spots for more picks. Looks to me this draft is for 2023 & 2024 to help the Bucs get out of cap space hell. Since any pick at spot 27 wasn’t going to help 2022 that much, this will allow some hope this team will find some gems so we can be competitive next season and on. Somebody wants to give me their 2023 1st round pick for spot 33 and their low 2nd and 3ed picks this year, I am making that trade.

Wondering the same thing. Must not have had RD1 grades on guys we passed on. And may see us collect picks and then move up to get certain players. Gonna be interesting.
