Here I have a question about the Bucs being able to work-out draft picks with the lock-out in progress. Plus additional thoughts on what the Bucs should do in this years draft.
How is it possible with the CBA still up in the air and the lockout disabling the coaches and players to use the facility, can a draft pick the Bucs want to work-out be allowed? To my understanding I thought that the lockout prohibited any players or staff to conduct any football related drills or meetings during this process. So I guess my question is pertaining to where do these work-outs take place and who is conducting the evaluation during a lock-out?
If I can try to answer my own question, does the league rule that potential draft picks are not yet associated with the players union and therefor they can use One Buc Place to conduct their workouts? If anyone can bring insight to my question I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, with the draft coming up here shortly what do you think is the right path for the bucs to pursue? Do they take the best available pick at #20? Do they trade up for a better DE? Do they trade down and stock pile picks for next years draft in case there isn't a season this year?
I believe that this organization should trade down and stock pile picks. They should use the vast amounts of salary cap we have to spend money on free agents to fill the positions needed. This way if there is a season we can have a veteran cast help mold our young stars for a year or two. If there isn't a season then we won't have to pay them. Keep in mind all this happening with the Glazer family actually giving a crap about this team and spending money on free agency.
