      With what we have seen of them boundary corners, the Bucs should be deeply concerned. Opposing teams will routinely go to and beat the backup boundary corner until it becomes a mantra…last year SMB was beat for the 4th most yards. Dean looks like he may compete for that dubious ranking.

      Should the Bucs seriously consider knocking on the ill-fitting Sherman? Or perhaps some high upside corner from someone’s PS?

      Cannot win if there are chunk plays, PIs included, extending drives and giving away 3 at the min.

      Dean needs to step his game up, stop looking so lost in space when forced to cover beyond 3 seconds in the meantime.

      I thought Sherman lost his mind and went to jail?

      While SMB being out will hurt, I thought Thursday’s performance was more about not getting to Dak with our front 7

      This goes to your point about a potential defensive back pick over Trask helping our depth

      All we can do is hope it’s a month injury

      People would have pissed their pants with outrage if Licht had spent another 2nd round pick on a DB.

      Hindsight is 20/20 after SMB and Whitehead injuries. Lets not pretend taking a 4th string CB or S in the 2nd was a no brainer move that Licht failed to make.

      Actually, I have complained plenty that anyone other than a punter or QB could have been selected…this was no hindsight 20/20 observation…

      Kyle Trask’s ceiling (and i hope i am eating crow in 5 years) is that of Mike Glennon.

      we are all in on the Superbowl and the only thing that can derail us is injury bug. So far, we lost our long snapper and potentially a starting corner.

      The Edge and interior offensive lineman pick were great. Added back-ups to already solid units.

      Instead of drafting a QB or a WR in which we do not need, they should have drafted:

      1 – defensive lineman – Suh, Gholston are pending free agents; Vea coming off injury. We have pretty weak depth here if an injury were to happen. They should have went in this direction similar to how Tryon is potential JPP replacement next year (although if JPP puts up 10 sacks again; we should consider prioritize resigning him right after Godwin, Carlton Davis)

      2 – Secondary – We are pretty strong at safety but Whitehead, Edwards aren’t at the level Winfield is so added depth there wouldn’t have been bad. Davis is a stud and Dean/SMB i like too but added another person here wouldnt have been a bad idea

      again – we are stacked with our starting line-up so the Bucs figured they could draft a third string QB and a kick returner in this draft. I dont agree with it and i dont necessary believe it will end our repeat hopes but Trask and Dearlen were stupid picks.

      Have to agree badabing.

      Made no sense to not draft depth with upside.

      Plenty of it was available.

      Plus there will be salary cap implications as roster turnover happens with e poring desks and limited cap space.

      Depth on the oline, defensive lineman, or secondary would have helped alleviate that concern slightly.

      Dumb dumb dumb pick. For another team, sure. But here? Dumb. Short sighted drunken pick to appease the local chomp chomp honks. Dumb.

      This is why I thought we needed to draft a DB early if possible, weakest position on the team. Dean was like a deer in the headlights out there, kind of felt for the guy getting picked on the way he was.

      I know we spent a lot of draft capital at DB over the years, but I was kinda hoping Greg Newsome or Eric Stokes would have been there for us at 32. Both long and fast corners who seem to be a good scheme fit for our defense.

      Obviously I’m very happy with Joe, don’t regret that pick one bit, especially because both corners went before our pick.

      You can never have too many good cornerbacks. Ultimately, I think we’ll be okay without SMB. We have Whitehead back, and Cockrell is serviceable in nickel.

      Dungy used to say: you should draft a CB in every draft…
      i like the strategy to pick a DB every year in the 2nd/3rd round range but i would never understand their choice to not recruit at least one starters who brings experience.

      we have Lavonte to lead the ILB, JPP for the OLB, Suh for the DL, Gronk at TE, AB at WR, Shady then Gio at RB, Jensen to lead the Oline and offcourse Brady leading your QB room, + you have guys in their prime (Evans, Marpet, D.Smith, Gholston, Shaq)…
      it’s weird to add experience everywhere except in our secondary where all starters are 23-24.

      In regard to where Trask was picked. I like it from a finacial stand point. You get a backup quarterback on a 4 year rookie deal. Far better than the 5-8 milli these backup guys are getting in Free Agency.

      that is assuming he can be a back-up.

      the Bucs sold their soul to the devil to be a legit superbowl threat for the Brady years. You dont go drafting mike glennon’s because as you saw in week 1, we lost a starting cornerback which could make us lose a game or two in the future.

      if Brady goes down, Gabbert is starting anyway and we are a .500 team at best.

      If another starter goes down, that is what 2nd and 4th round picks are for to help full in. luckily Crockrell should be serviceable fulling in for SMB.

      Bucs are stacked at WR with 2 HOFs, 1 All-Pro, and Scottie Miller who would be in top 3 on basically any other team other than Dallas and Tampa. Still smh at that pick as well

      I beat that drum and got excoriated for it. Those that were against my opinion then have said little now because they know I was right. You draft depth in meaningful positions. Trask was an awful pick for simple reasons.

      That and he really isn’t that good.

      It’s ok to bitch and whine about a draft pick for a while. It’s been what, 5-6 months and you’re still starting new threads and ranting on and on. It’s like crickets in the night when you’re trying to get some sleep. Or a rooster crowing in the morning when you’re trying to sleep in. We get it. You hate the pick. Fine.

      Didn’t acknowledge you are right. Acknowledged it’s ok to complain for a time. What I don’t like is you keep bringing it up over and over. It’s been almost 5 months since the draft. Why can’t you give it a rest? Your obsession with the Trask pick is almost as bad as theknees’ obsession with Lameis Jameis wINsTon.

      No it isn’t you drama Queen. He was all over that jock for years. And it turns out he was wrong. I can’t help but remind you guys who absolutely trashed me for my opinion, most likely because you guys are fucking gator nubs, and I don’t give AF about any of that in this board. So I must dutifully remind you guys what a bad idea it was to take Trask, as a nice reminder that you guys can give, you must also be able to take the shot as well. Trask was an awful pick and your whining about me hating the pick tastes delicious!
