PewterReport.com features a dozen young Day 2 and Day 3 running backs that Tampa Bay could target in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Bucs want a big, physical running back to complement slashing running back Charles Sims, last year’s third-round pick. Several of these running backs were featured in last week’s SR’s Fab 5 column, but for more insight into the big backs the Bucs are scouting click here to view this photo gallery.

With Tampa Bay likely drafting Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston in the first round and either selecting an offensive tackle or a defensive end in the second round, the Bucs could spend a draft pick on a running back anywhere from the third round to the seventh round. Tampa Bay has already scheduled private workouts with South Carolina running back Mike Davis and Florida’s Matt Jones.

Well Buc fans I’ve think that each of these players would fit great.Espically that big rb in the later round could also fill in for a emergemcy TE.Lets see what draft pick Tampa gets for Glen the QB and Martin the running back. If Tampa gets a draft choice for each player. Then it perfectly simple If Glen is traded in 2 or 3 or 4th rd. Then Tampa gets another QB at that Round. Just Like Martin. If Martin is given a 3rd Rd Pick then Tampa would select a rb in that round for martin slot. GO BUCS

Well jongruden: I think you mis read my comments. What I ment is Tampa would get the positions that they are targeting,But Tampa would go after a RB and another QB with the lower Draft choice for that slot. If Tampa has a higher draft slot then Tampa would go after that pick and the lower draft choice would be a rb or qb with those extra draft choices.Remember Tampa has 8 draft choices slots right now.GO BUCS

Good additions, but please don’t take a RB before you take at least 1 each OT and G

I’m a fan of Mike Davis and would love to get him in the 4th or 5th round.

I will add that my favorite by far is Tevin Coleman and I would take him in any round besides of course the 1st.

Please stop with the RB chatter. The only way we should pick a RB is if we get a third round pick for Martin and I don’t see that happening unless the Colts feel like getting robbed again.

I agree with Pink on Tevin Coleman. The kid played behind a bad O line and was electric. Top of the second may be a possibility if the Colts don’t grab him at 29. Check out his highlight reel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r32w8hF9PTM
