Former Bucs defensive tackle Warren Sapp and current ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay are among those who believe Gerald McCoy is the draft prospect who best fits the Bucs needs at defensive tackle.
That won’t keep the Bucs from taking a good hard look at the other elite defensive tackle in this year’s draft.
Ndamukong Suh, who has spent the last two days visiting the Detroit Lions, is scheduled to visit the Bucs on April 13, according to his agent, Roosevelt Barnes.Source: Tampa Tribune - Roy Cummings
PewterReport.com's Take: No one should be surprised that the Buccaneers have scheduled a meeting with Suh. It would, however, be shocking if Suh fell to the Buccaneers at No. 3, but it's starting to look like that could happen. Assuming the Rams take Bradford, the Lions are seriously considering taking OT Russell Okung, which would make sense since their first-round pick from last year, quarterback Matt Stafford, needs better protection. There's still a chance the Lions will draft a defensive tackle, but if Suh somehow falls to Tampa Bay the Bucs would be on top of the world since Suh is the No. 1 player on the Bucs' draft board according to the people PewterReport.com has talked to inside One Buccaneer Place.
