    Just my guess; we trade down five spots for a fourth round pick.

    Just kill me if we draft Justin Evans. He is utter trash.

    All I want are players who are injury and issue free, from big programs who really love the game. Of course big, fast and talented won’t hurt. D back for sure. No need to reach at this time. Go Bucs!

    Should be exciting. I’m all for a trade back if we can find a partner to do so. I am really starting to think Willis or the CB from Colorado would be the pick if we trade back. Cook won’t be there, just don’t see it happening. If we do and we pass, like I’ve said before, the Bucs have a reason for it. I can only go by tape, and they’ve sat down and talked to the guy. Hell you might be able you trade back and still get him, ala Hargreaves.
    I’m glad that they aren’t smitten with Obiuwenfu, he just screams underwear warrior. I much prefer Budda. That guy plays with a mean streak. I believe there is so much talent in this draft, it’s going to be almost impossible to mess it up. We get our future Buc tonight ladies and gentleman!

    Great article Scott!! This my friends is Buccaneer reporting, and why PR is the leader. Regardless of if you like the information he’s giving you, it is as real information. Everyone understands some of it could be a smoke screen by the Bucs, but he’s giving us something “hot” from inside.

    Great info before the draft, should be fun

    Thanks Scott, excellent insight. At least now I’ll have a clue when the Bucs pick someone unexpected and pass up guys that are on the board that would seem to be fits. Maybe that will save me from throwing my remote like I did last year with the Aguayo pick…

    Everyone will hate me for saying this but if you believe one of the OTs is a true first rounder and you can’t trade down, taking a guy who will protect JW’s blind side for the next decade with the 19th pick would be a smart, albeit wildly unpopular, move. The combination of lack of quality OL in this draft and our need (IMO) supports this, especially if the draft is truly stocked at RB, TE and DB.

    Then, if either Smith can play better inside at LG than he has at LT, or Pamphile can (really) step up, and we let Dotson and Smith compete at RT, with Marpet at C and Sweezy at RG, that could be the best OL this team has ever had. Low bar to clear, yes, but just as with the DL, it all starts up front…

    If Dalvin Cook is there and the Bucs pass on him for a player that shouldn’t get chosen until the top of the second round (Adoree, Njoku) something is getting broken. Likely my liver

    Matador, I don’t hate you for saying that at all and tend to agree. I am only posting now though to thank Scott, Mark, Trevor and any other staff at PR for the great articles, coverage, insight that has been released not just in the past couple months but the entire year. I am not sure where I would go or what I would do for my Bucs news fix without you guys! Thank you for the great work! Go Bucs

    Just for FUN:
    If Trubisky is not#1 pick. JL trades all our picks to San Fran. for #2 pick. Jax and Bears and Browns call but make a deal with Jax for their 2nd and 3rd or 4th rd pick. Jax then drafts L Fornett. Bucs have the 4th pick and and above mentioned picks. So then the Browns get concerned because they REALLY want Trubisky also Jets get involved and Bucs make a deal with Browns for 2 #2s a 3 and a 5th. Bucs take whoever they want, with multiple picks in top 90 player’s. Remember THIS IS JUST FOR FUN!

    Bucs better pray that Jacksonville takes Leonard Fournette. Because if Fournette ends up on Carolina, they will run all over the Bucs.

    Clemson head coach was asked today out of all the players in this draft who he feared the most to face? Without blinking an eye he said Dalvin Cook. Explain. He said everytime he touched the ball I’d hold my breath thinking he would score, from anywhere, anytime. Tonight hopefully Cook takes our breath away.

    Not surprised about trading down at all given the talent depth and the Aguayo pick last year. Hoping that wasn’t a wasted pick……we still have lots needs.

    I’m thinking it’s 50/50 on if they trade down or somoeone is there at 19 they really want. Will be fun one to watch.
