What we know now is that Revis is the newest member of the Buccaneers (tip of the hat to Dom who was patient enough and knew we couldn't afford to give the world). He set a "must have by" date and he waited showing his best poker face, and by all accounts he won big time. So now we can FINALLY turn our full attention to the Bucs draft starting Thurs. realistically Fri since Tampa dealt the #13 pick to the Jets. I will attempt to finish out Dom's A+ offseason with a home run draft.
Lets get started shall we:
2nd rd Pick - DJ Hayden CB Houston - I believe the hype and at this point with what all we know nabbing him this low on top of Revis would be a MAJOR steal
3rd rd Pick - Zavier Gooden - OLB Missouri - REALLY high on him especially as a coverage LB, ran the fastest time for any LB at the combine, physical freak and a tackling machine, he will excel in the pros
1st 4th - Logan Ryan CB Rutgers - Schiano recruited and coached him and has to know what he can get out of him, he is a bit raw but über-talented
2nd 4th - Chris Faulk OT LSU - This is a bit of a reach but the fact he could slip this low is laughable, the guy has top 15 draft pick talent and potential and had a torn ACL but with an extra pick Tampa has an opportunity to snag a guy who has been compared favorably to Russell Okung and Andrew Whitworth.
5th Rd - Bennie Logan DT LSU - Also a significant upgrade at a need position and another guy I am very high on. He wreaked havoc against a lot of really good OLs in the SEC and is a good candidate to play the nose
6th Rd - Levine Toilolo TE Stanford - major project TE but a great blocker and a high ceiling (Gronkowski is his ceiling) LOOOOOOONG LONG arms and soft hands
6th rd - Jawan Jamison RB Rutgers - bigger power back with the hands Blount lacks (36 receptions). A good guy to take a chance on to pair with Dougie, and he's a Rutgers guy
7th Rd - Rodney Smith WR FSU - Speed demon even at 6'5 225, can go up and get it at high points, never reached his full potential at FSU but has all the tools to be a nice compliment WR
so what do you guys think?
