Would you be mad if the Bucs picked this kid? He is a tackler, takes solid angles, plays linebacker with safety coverage skills, looks like he loves football…like a good depth piece to learn behind some of the best.
I personally would love the pick. Him or Creed. Both I see as good depth pieces, as well as being good players who will eventually replace some guys.
If he’s there at 32 I’d be shocked, but would be all for it. He’s a exactly what an off ball linebacker of the future looks like to me. He can cover, and I know Bowles would find ways to get him on the field even with White and David.
I’d prefer someone in the first who will contribute this year (Super Bowl or bust!) without injury need (i.e. a rotational edge rusher). LVD and White rarely leave the field. The one scenario where I’d like him this year is if Bowles plans to get him on the field with LVD and White, i.e. use White as a specialty edge rusher if he’s suitable for the task.
Good pick. I like Tryon, a little less than Mark Barron Deluxe (JOK). Hopefully the Bucs can nab Creed next. After that, I am not watching the draft for the first time in twenty years…because it is all gravy baby.
That is exactly what it is. He is running behind Shaq and JPP, David and White…if those guys can’t motivate him, they should have drafted Owusu Karamoah. That guy has football DNA. But I like Tryon because he does have a lot of upside, a lot of great mentors, and he could boost the pass rush. Cool pick. Hopefully he works his ass off and becomes an alpha.
