    I don’t think the Bucs will take another WR in the 1st round. I have Tyler Boyd in the 2nd round as the 3rd slot/speed WR that can stretch the field in my mock. I saw Miller at the Senior Bowl and was impressed. I know Boyd can catch the long ball, but I’ve not seen enough of Miller outside to know that he can do it all. Sub 4.3/40 at the Combine will get everybody’s attention so I’ll stay tuned!

    1. 1.1


      I think that if miller is their I would draft him,Aldo I would drade down for a 2nd rd pick plus the team that draft who would trade up. Tampa could really get all those new player on both side of the ball

    Never heard of him till the Senior Bowl. I’m hearing of a Qb/Wr convert. These things happen, many times successfully. I just kind of like some d talent so much; there’s a lot of exciting Dt’s for one. Striker goes up and up my list; I heard in the senior bowl, he put on weight and it didn’t slow him down any!

    1. 2.1


      Braxton Miller’s youtube highlights shows receiving ability, yes. But, I’m still not sure I’m seeing a Randy Moss impactfull type of player.

      1. 2.1.1


        Yes, we can improve at Wr; but we can improve at Dt and a number of other areas as well. We can trade down and still get an improvement at Dt; in fact, an improvement that would be very potent for any O to stop.



          I’m hoping this Braxton Miller talk is more smoke than anything else!

    2. 2.2


      Here’s the “Great blue north draft report”‘s all Senior bowl “all practice team”,

    This guy is going to be special. The bucs need to step up and grab him.

  4. 4


    There’s no doubt the guy has athletic ability but there is no way you draft a guy that has a. Never played in the outside, b. Had 300 yards receiving on the season., in the first round.
    With our receiving core , wr is one of the last things in our list. Again special talent but physical ability onky gets so far. He could be great in a couple years and he has shown the want to work.

    Braxton Miller? Not in round 1 or 2 if I’m picking. I would take Stanford WR/KR/PR/RB Christian McCaffrey way ahead of Miller. Dude finished 2nd in all purpose yards of all time behind Barry Sanders.
    Check him out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KATM8Vw1bl8&app=desktop

    1. 5.1


      McCaffrey’s only a sophomore.

      1. 5.1.1


        Say it isn’t so! Oh well, kid is electric.

  6. 6


    BucWild02…good call. McCaffrey is really good and a proven receiver. I don’t see us going receiver till later rounds. To many needs on defense.

  7. 7


    Here is what we need in the draft DE, Corner, DE, Corner and did I mention DE and Corner I don’t want to hear slot WR BS our defense is a joke and corner DE is a the punch line to that joke.

    1. 7.1


      jongruden-Scheme change. New rookie players may not be as good as players we already have at CB. Stud DE would help though!
