NFL Draft 2013 Live Blog and Open Thread: Waiting for a Buccaneers trade up

Join us in the live blog!

We'll be running a live blog throughout the first round today, giving you instant analysis on the picks and how they affect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, we wait for the Bucs to trade back up into the first round as they've been rumored to do ever since they traded for Darrelle Revis. So join us for the fun!

This is part two, you can find part one here.


11:43 p.m.: The Dallas Cowboys take center Travis Frederick. That is one hell of a reach. One pick left, and the Buccaneers really aren't trading up.

11:36 p.m.: The Rams take Alec Ogletree off the board for those of you hoping for a guy with character issues and lacking instincts.

11:30 p.m.: And the Minnesota Vikings take wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Exciting player but he has a long way to go still. They gave up a second, third, fourth and seventh-rounder to get the Patriots' first-round pick there. That's a lot.

11:16 p.m.: And the Denver Broncos take Sylvester Williams. The Buccaneers are almost certainly staying put at this point.

11:12 p.m.: Here's another skill player: DeAndre Hopkins to the Houston Texans to complement Andre Johnson.

11:02 p.m.: And here goes Datone Jones to the Green Bay Packers. I love that pick. Has some traits of Justin Smith and JJ Watt.

10:55 p.m.: And here goes Xavier Rhodes, my final real trade up target for the Buccaneers. Physical press man guy the Bucs could have used.

10:52 p.m.: The Colts just took Bjoern Werner. Can I take back my vote for Ryan Grigson as GM of the year?

10:47 p.m.: And there goes Sharrif Floyd to the St. Louis Rams. Intriguing pick -- he just kept falling. Starting to look like the Buccaneers won't trade up at this point.

10:38 p.m.: The Atlanta Falcons take Desmond Trufant. Cornerback for the Falcons, who had a massive hole there. They gave up a third and sixth rounder to move up, and get a 2015 seventh-rounder (!) in return.

10:35 p.m.: The Bengals take tight end Tyler Eifert. No trading up for him, then. Some defensive linemen may still intrigue the Bucs, but it's starting to look like they won't trade up. Meanwhile, the Falcons have traded up with the Rams.

10:30 p.m.: And the Chicago Bears take T Kyle Long out of Oregon. Interesting pick. The Bears need a ton of offensive line help. And, of course, Floyd and Eifert keep on falling, falling, falling.

10:22 p.m.: Tackle Justin Pugh to the New York Giants. Tyler Eifert keeps on falling. Weird.

10:16 p.m.: The 49ers grab safety Eric Reid. I don't get that one: Jonathan Cyprien is a better player.

10:14 p.m.: The Dallas Cowboys got a third-rounder for trading down 14 picks. That may be what the Bucs have to give up to get back in the first round.

10:14 p.m.: Jarvis Jones to the Steelers. They get a good pass-rushing outside linebacker to replace Jerome Harrison. Meanwhile, the 49ers trade up with the Cowboys. They've been rumored to be going after a defensive tackle, and Sharrif Floyd would make sense here.

10:05 p.m.: Whoa, E.J. Manuel is the first quarterback off the board to the Buffalo Bills at number sixteen. Potential rules the day once again. Massive arm, good potential, tons of questions.

10:00 p.m.: Kenny Vaccaro to the Saints at number fifteen. My favorite safety off the board. It also fixes the massive hole they call Roman Harper.

9:53 p.m.: Star Lotulelei to the Carolina Panthers. Sorry for you Star fans, but now Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph will have to deal with him.

9:47 p.m.: It's defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson for the New York Jets. Will we see a DT run now?

9:41 p.m: Quickly recapping the first round so far and seeing what remains on the board for the Bucs.

9:40 p.m.: The Raiders take cornerback D.J. Hayden. Off the board comes my top cornerback. Xavier Rhodes might be an intriguing option at the end of the first round for the Bucs now.

9:32 p.m.: And another offensive lineman comes off the board with Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker.

9:26 p.m.: With the tenth pick the Titans take guard Chance Warmack. Not a sexy pick, but a good player there. Lots of linemen early.

9:19 p.m.: Someone has an opinion on Gruden

9:18 p.m.: The first cornerback comes off the board as the New York Jets take Dee Milliner at number nine to replace Darrelle Revis. Now we wait for D.J. Hayden to come off the board.

9:08 p.m.: The Rams gave up a second-round pick and swapped third-round picks to move up 8 picks into the top 10. Keep that in mind for the Bucs later in the draft.

9:05 p.m.: The St. Louis Rams just traded up for Tavon Austin with the Buffalo Bills at no. 8. Intriguing. Cornerbacks and quarterbacks continue to stay on the board. Intriguingly, defensive tackles too.

9:02 p.m.: The Cardinals pick Jonathan Cooper. So far there's been a run on linemen on both sides of the ball. No cornerbacks or cornerbacks.

8:54 p.m.: The Cleveland Browns just selected Barkevious Mingo out of LSU. Really undersized pass rusher. And the cornerbacks keep on falling.

8:48 p.m.: The Lions have selected Ziggy Ansah. They just keep selecting defensive linemen in every draft. Interesting selection: raw but very, very talented. Cornerbacks remain on the board for the Buccaneers!

8:44 p.m.: The Eagles select Lane Johnson fourth overall. Boring pick, but makes a lot of sense.

8:39 p.m.: Of course, that also means D.J. Hayden could easily go to the Raiders at number twelve.

8:38 p.m.: The Dolphins gave up a second-round pick to move up 9 spots at the top of the draft. Small indication of what it might take for the Bucs to move up later.

8:35 p.m.: The Miami Dolphins have traded up...for Dion Jordan! Intriguing pick. This means Lane Johnson remains on the board. More importantly, it means the Dolphins aren't selecting a cornerback. That's good for the Bucs.

8:32 p.m.: We have the first trade of the draft: the Miami Dolphins have traded up with the Oakland Raiders.

8:25 p.m.: The Jacksonville Jaguars pick T Luke Joeckel with the second overall pick. Only one top tackle left now in Lane Johnson.

8:22 p.m.: This draft is going a lot more slowly than last year's draft, which seemed to have a pick every two minutes early on.

8:17 p.m.: The Kansas City Chiefs have selected offensive tackle Eric Fisher with their first selection.

8:03 p.m.: And we're off!

7:53 p.m.: I mentioned Tank Carradine as a possible trade up candidate for the Bucs, but his knee may be worrisome than has been let on.

7:46 p.m.: What the Bucs draft room looks like 30 minutes before the draft

7:35 p.m.: Matt Williamson sure likes what the Bucs did

7:32 p.m.: Meanwhile, at the Bucs' draft party

7:12 p.m.: No clue where possible Buccaneers target D.J. Hayden will go exactly, but it's sure starting to look like the Bucs won't get close to selecting him.

7:00 p.m.: Welcome to our live blog! We'll be with you throughout the first day of the draft. Get your instant analysis pertaining the Bucs and my idiotic theories right here.
