There it is ladies and gentleman, the moment we’ve all been waiting for since the final whistle blew in week 17, the NFL draft.
In an unforeseen turn of events, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded up with the San Francisco 49ers to move up a grand total of one pick. With this pick, they selected new Buccaneers right tackle, Tristan Wirfs.
With this pick, there were quite a few positive reactions from the Twitter-verse, but also some who thought this maybe wasn’t the right call Let’s start off with some of the positives:
Love the pick— TruBucFan (@1trubucfan) April 24, 2020
Stay away fake fans this is a great pick!!— 9Lack⚫️ (@daddycaleb23) April 24, 2020
The Buccaneers get arguably the most talented OT in the draft. Wirfs is super athletic, sub 4.9, this is huge.— JC Cornell (@CornellNFL) April 24, 2020
Some who are...slightly closer to the situation are also very excited about the pick:
But for all the positive reactions, there are some who don’t think he’ll pan out:

Others who think he should’ve played guard:
Tristan Wirfs sucks and will be a backup guard, good job idiots— I'm A Bucs Fan (@IUsedToWear21) April 24, 2020
And some who thought that using picks to move up was too hefty of a price to pay:
I absolutely hate giving up assets here to move up one pick— Kunal Agrawal (@agrawalk1991) April 24, 2020
But for the most part, a lot of people, fans or not, are starting to view the Bucs as Super Bowl bound based on the pick:
Tristan Wirfs falls to Tom Brady. Of course he did. One thing Tampa Bay needed — they get. #SevenRings— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) April 24, 2020
The Bucs just picked the best tackle in the draft at 13! Tom Brady playing in the first ever “home” Super Bowl in Tampa is gonna be lit!— Adam Schein (@AdamSchein) April 24, 2020
