2008 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Order


Our 6th Round Draft Pick went in the Trade for RB Michael Bennett and our 7th Round Draft Pick (as discussed) went for retired QB Jake Plummer. Thus we only have (5) picks this year..

Below and in this site's left sidebar you'll find the Bucs 2008 Draft Order.. It's almost the opposite of last season's (2) picks in the 2nd Round and (3) picks in the 7th Round. We only have 5 picks this year, um yeah, slim pickins'. I think the Bucs need immediate help and further depth at the following positions (listed in order of importance): Wide Receiver, Cornerback, Punt/Kick Returner, Defensive Tackle, Offensive Line, and Tight End.

We've got (6) Quarterbacks (forget that position), (5) Runningbacks (Dunn, Bennett, Graham, Williams, and Darby to an extent I guess), Linebacking Depth wouldnt be a horrible idea with Derrick Brooks probably playing in his 2nd to last season with the Bucs. We've got plenty at Safety and Defensive End... We sorely need help in the Punt/Kick Returning department, especially with Michael Pittman not returning. Michael Spurlock and Chad Lucas arent bad options, but Ike Hilliard returned Punts at times last season, it's time to upgrade.. Here's the Draft Order (I suppose its subject to change with the Jake Plummer situation):

Bucs Draft Order
Round Number Player Position
1 20 WR, CB, DT? Trade Up?
2 52 WR, CB, DT? QB? Better not!
3 83 WR, CB, DT? QB? I said NO!
4 116 TE, OT, WR? Come on enough with the QB talk
5 145 TE, OT, WR? Fine have it your way, QB
