    Great listen guys, have to be honest as far as Doug Martin and Charles Sims goes. Both are on the bubble really and Jason and Dirk (other than Sims) don’t have their names attached to them. So the Bucs getting a RB at ome point, we know that. And the point about being able to win Day 2 of the draft this year, and does make Trevor’s mock draft look alot better, if they could indeed bulk up the 2nd or 3rd rounds. If you can get 4 picks in the top 80-90 players in this draft with some variation of pass rusher, DB, Running back, Pass-catcher, this team will be made for deep playoff success. Go Bucs

    Great as always guys. It has to hurt a bit for Trevor to compliment Dalvin after all of those beatings he gave them. As for Simms, I do think he’s on the bubble as he doesn’t bring much of anything to the RB position. I think they should use him as a wide out a little more and use his strength.

    Mark, you’re Seminole pride runs deep, but trading Jameis and a first rounder for Dalvin might be overdoing it. However as he is your cousin I could definitely see you pulling the trigger. My question is as noles fans, do we start pining now for Derwin James , or wait till next offseason?Great podcast guys, always worth a good laugh while hearing good bucs info.
    Looking forward to that Fab 5 Scott.

      Never too soon to start begging for Derwin, but only way Bucs get him is if they go 2-14. He will be top 5 pick guaranteed next season. And glad you got the joke on trading Winston, I am afraid a few will take me seriously!

        Start the Dump for Derwin!* It would surely pan out long term

        *Working title



          I’m hoping we never have to worry about picking in the top 15 for a long time. I only jest about Derwin as he is an absolute monster and will be the next great safety in the NFL. I do like the Dump for Derwin. We could get it printed on toilet paper and such. I’m thinking marketing here.

    Best description I’ve heard so far of Mixon is that he’s an oversized wide receiver. He has natural hands and does well in space but lacks the agility and acceleration to be more than a pedestrian ball carrier. He has good straight line speed so if you can spring him he has home run potential but is very ineffective otherwise especially if the play is disrupted in the backfield.

    He does not possess the agility or short area explosiveness to consistently get to and through holes in the NFL that will prove to be far more fleeting. Ultimately I think he is best served as part of a committee where he is featured in the passing game where a team can get him the ball in space. He is clearly not in the same tier of back as the top 3 with whom he is often associated.

      I really do think they’ll get to it next week.

    I still believe the Bucs are only holding on to Martin till after the draft. I still believe Cook, or McCaffery will fall to us at #19, and we’ll be glad to add them to our team. I still believe we should use this R.B. heavy draft to double down at this position, and draft another good back in the third. The draft is also deep at safety, and tight end, and I believe we can fill those needs in rounds 2,4,5,6,7. Martin is gone. Hurt 3, out of 5 years, 5 years being the life span of most backs. Add to the fact he won’t be available till week 4 goodbye. Sims also hurt a lot, and when he’s not, he just isn’t that good. Quizz will mentor whoever we draft, but we saw last year he’s not capable of totting the rock for a whole season. Barber is young, on the cheap, and certainly worth keeping, but let’s not kid ourselves he wasn’t even drafted. The Bucs want to be a run first team that relies heavy on play action. If this is to be at all possible we better draft two young studs who can make this offense run the way it’s designed to do.

    Dalvin Cook took a beating at FSU. To think he can hold up in the NFL ?? To many collage coaches wear out a good player. I have to wonder what Payton Barber draft status would be this year if he had stayed at Auburn? Now he has not taken a beating and leaned bucs offense he may very well be the starter RB this season. Just my opinion GO BUCS
