      Ledyard talks about the trade down idea, and I’ve heard SR mention it as well. Trading out of the first round to move down a bit into the second round. The issue is that the Bucs won’t have a ton of room on the roster for rookies this year, so according to them accumulating extra picks would only make sense if you are getting more picks for next year.

      But I think don’t think that’s the only angle. I would like to see the Bucs consolidate into four top 100 picks. I would focus on trading down into the early to mid 2nd, possibly also deal a late rounder to get it done –>

      Pick up an extra 3rd round pick so that you can get four good picks in Day 2, two 2nds and two 3rds.

      Those picks should develop into future starters if all goes well. Its true, whatever picks in the later rounds may be destined for the practice squad with this team. That’s why the Bucs should focus on getting four good future starters on Day 2. I think we’ll have room for four top 100 caliber rookies. That’s my Bucs draft strategy.

      It all depends on the trade down offer. I would also like to see them trade down but possibly stockpile picks for next years draft.

      I doubt one of the top 5 Qbs falls to our pick but if one did then I’m sure we could get a pretty big offer.

      If there is no decent offer then just stand pat and take BPA at a position of high importance.

      Late 1st round picks aren’t worth as much as everyone dreaming of top 10 picks. Per drafttek, if we drop all the way from 32 to 43, then we would get equal to our pick in the 3rd round (95). Sure someone could over spend. But the best we would get is maybe a extra 6th or 7th pick. And 11 picks is a long way to slide for 1 3rd and maybe a late round pick.

      Trading down from 32 is easy because some teams covet that fifth year with first rounders. Bucs should seriously consider it IMO.

      Unless a blue chip player falls into their lap @32 trade down makes the most sense.

      Someone may be willing to part with an early second AND a future first.

      Im in the opposite camp.

      Trade up.

      There are very few open roster spots as is.

      And the bucs have about $1 mil cap space currently. Need to clear some to sign the draft class.

      Quality over quantity this draft!

        Trading down helps the cap the most. Only top 51 players on roster count towards cap so only one rookie will most like be counted on cap this year.

      Looking at the cap and roster, my first choice would be trading 32 for a 2022 1st round and 2/3/4 (depending on how good the lottery ticket) in 2021. Maybe even a 2022 2nd and 2021 2nd. I’d consider trading out of multiple picks for future assets. I think our unique position makes pushing draft capital out into the future as much as possible optimal.

      yeah it doesnt always work that way though. you have something they want and you force them to overpay. they either get the guy they want and pay up or run the risk of missing out

      I’d like an aggressive approach. Go all in. Who’s out there in this draft that’s going to be a good upgrade on what we got? Hard to find on a team that just won it but window is a window. How quick did our window open when we got Brady? How quickly does it close when he’s gone. The real question there but more important is this season as this will be the closest we know of right now to win it all. Who the hell knows about the future. I’ll say this we are in a good place to restore some things to kick it back a few years from now if everything falls into place but see how I said if things fall into place?

        I agree BucBalla, the more I think about it.. there aren’t many roster spots available, 8 rookies won’t make this team. While I’d be okay with moving up in the 1st or moving down a few spots, I’d like to see an aggressive approach moving up in the middle rounds to grab players who can contribute this season. We don’t need 6th and 7th rounders, they won’t make this team. If we end up with 1st rounder, 2nd rounder, 3rd rounder and two 4th rounders I think that’s how we should approach this draft.

      Trade up!

      Stockpiling picks for next year doesn’t help us win a Superbowl this season.

      Trade down for future picks if the concern is not enough roster spots. I honestly don’t believe that because the Bucs haven’t resigned either of their return specialists in Logan or Barner. Bucs still need to find another CB to be a gunner to replace Smith on ST and for depth. Same with safety with the loss of Adams unless Hagan breaks out. And an OT to replace Haeg in jumbo packages and to back up Wirfs. Bucs also don’t have a #4 ILB to groom to eventually play next to D. White. That is five roster spots right there.

      Then you have areas where the Bucs can upgrade and bring in competition for Gill, Watson, Grayson and Stanley. That is four more roster spots.

      There are plenty of roster spots up for grabs.

      Bucs trade down, gain future picks and still are able to load up on building depth while also shoring up special teams. Special teams needs a huge improvement for another run IMO.

      Special teams is where we can draft a player to contribute immediately. As one poster mentioned, we lost our gunner in Smith. We could easily add a CB, WR, RB, or S that doubles as either a gunner or KR/PR. There might be value in moving down 5-10 spots into the 2nd round in order to draft that player without “reaching”. If you can also add a 3rd, 4th, or 5th round pick in the process, that’s great! With no Combine this year, lots of teams are concerned with medical checks on players, so you might be able to grab a 1st round talent who slipped due to medical concerns in the 2nd or 3rd round. So, we could trade down in the first round AND use later picks to trade up into the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bucs double dip with some DBs like a S and CB that can also play special teams like you said. And a WR and RB that are return specialists would be great as the Bucs don’t have a WR that is effective as a WR and return specialist on the roster. And adding a RB that can act like depth for 2022 and beyond while also being a return specialist for 2021 is huge.
