  • Breaking down the options at pick 19

    Here is my big board of guys we are looking at at pick 19 (NOT IN ORDER):

    DT Peria Jerry - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQgnFw5fMaA We have a huge need at DT and Jerry should be available. However he is relatively light at 290 lbs and will be 25 years old on opening day. How much of an upgrade is he really over Jovan Haye? Perhaps the Bucs would be much better off dumping a bunch of money on 330 lb Albert Haynesworth.

    DE Larry English - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ad0Famkaas A guy who will get serious consideration from the Bears at pick 18. I believe he will be a 43 DE in the league and not a 34 lb. Gives us 2 exciting edge rushers for the next 5+ years.

    CB Alphonso Smith - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED9C6JWaoPg I know we just picked a CB last year but this guy is a playmaker. His speed and quickness would complement Talib's size and physicallity very well. Also Ronde is almost done and Buchanon sucked at the end of the year and is a FA.

    WR Hakeem Nicks - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWakmo3_m2s Another guy that the Bears might take at pick 18. He has all the physical attributes of a #1 wr. Strong hands, good size, runs nice routes. My #3 wr this year.

    WR Percy Harvin - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE-4-bzH9WI Might be the biggest playmaker in the draft but is raw. Will never be the #1 wr, will always be the exciting #2 to complement an Antonio Bryant or other #1 wr. Would give the Bucs some much needed spark.

    OT Michael Oher - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjM8bL0X9P4 If he were to fall, I think the Bucs would have to consider taking him. He could fit in as either a LT or RT.

    NO QB (I have Sanchez being gone and Freeman has BUST oooozing out of him)

    NO RB (EG and Clifton Smith can get it done)

    Considering the new scheme, I think the odds on favorites at this point are CB's Alphonso Smith and D.J. Moore and perhaps DE Larry English. If we lose Antonio Bryant in free agency, then WR does become pretty urgent. I do like Jarrett Dillard from Rice somewhere in Day 2, but I know he's not a #1 WR, but an excellent WCO slot player.



    Oher would absolutely fit in with the zone blocking scheme that Jagodzinski wants to implement, especially at RT where I'm not sure how well Jeremy Trueblood will fare.


    And I absolutely agree with you assessment on Freeman.

      Good list. The one guy I would add is Eben Britton.

        Am I the only one who likes Josh Freeman?

          They could be looking at Beatty if they want an OT. The others will be gone, and I don't think Britton fits in that role. Not a bad pick, really...

          CB is a need, but it's more of a 3rd round and later need. Getting Talib really helped that situation a ton.

          Jerry would be a great pick - probably the best one they can make. There's no way he's undersized for that defense...he's actually pretty big by Colts' standards.

          English is an option, but there are so many Larry English-types... They could find a Cody Brown later on to do the same or better job.

          I don't think WR will be an option unless Maclin or DHB is there... I really believe they'll invest heavily in the offense through free agency, and mostly address the defense via the draft.

            I'm sorry but I just can't see how OT is currently a position we would utilise a first round pick on.

            Most people dislike Trueblood (not me personally) and even if he was to be replaced, we wouldn't do it in the first round.

            As far as LT goes, Donald Penn is a young, improving starter. There is very little need to use a 1st rounder to upgrade a position in which we already have a good player. The pick would be much more usefully used addressing a position where no clear cut starter is identified ie QB, WR, DT, LE and now LB.

              I agree that Penn and Trueblood are good OTs but Oher is too good to pass up (and he wont be there now with Andre Smith messing up so its a moot point). We wont pick Beatty or Britton at 19.

              I'd be pissed if we took Cushing.

              And 24cadillac24, Josh Freeman is all measurables and no intangibles. Sure he can throw it 100 yards but he can't even read big 12 defenses, what is he going to do in the nfl? I am sure Raheem knows this coacing at KSU and will stay away.

                Here's my idea of the options....

                Josh Freeman - I don't want him, but we still don't have a #1 guy at QB and I doubt the new staff sees McCown as the guy and Johnson as anything more than a project. I wouldn't be shocked at all to see us take him...hell even trade up for him.

                WR - This seems the most logical choice. We only have 4 WRs on the roster now, 2 of which are high draft picks who have done next to nothing on offense. I like Harvin, Maclin & Nicks, but I have a feeling that DHB is on the top of our list :(. Britt is out of the question as we already have Stovall & Clayton.

                OT - Oh no...not another OT, lol. I wouldn't be upset if we took Oher or Andre Smith. Both are top-5 talents that are loaded with potential. I can't stand Trueblood and I don't see how any Bucs fan that saw us late in the season can say otherwise. The guy is a liability with his play and his temper.

                DE - I don't like the idea of drafting Larry English. He's about the same talent level as Greg White and we really don't need to spend a top-20 pick on another situational pass rusher. We need a bookend who can start and play 3 downs. I wouldn't mind taking Tyson Jackson for that role, but not English or M. Johnson (although I'm a big fan). We can always grab a guy like Stryker Sulak later on to give us a nice situational edge rusher and ST contributor. The value is really high there.

                DT - Jerry would be a huge upgrade in our interior (as would Ziggy Hood), but we don't have room ATM.

                LB - Laurinaitis would be a nice piece for our defense and he's very versatile. Any other LB would make me angry.

                To summarize, here's what I expect:

                1. WR
                2. Freeman
                3. Jackson

                  After the money they're shelling out to Clayton and Bryant plus the trade for KWII, I'd be a bit more surprised if the Bucs went WR in the first than I would have been this time last week.

                    Money for Clayton....how much?

                    But I did think about the Winslow factor and it does cloud the situation, however we really have no targets at WR. Even if you consider Clayton a #2 guy, we still don't have a proven 3 or 4. There are lots of WRs available in the 3rd, but there's also some good ones at the top. The value at WR is greater than the other positions IMO.

                      5 years 24 million, 10.5 mil guaranteed, could go up to 26 million with incentives.

                      Given that Derrick Brooks and Cato June were just cut a few days ago, wouldn't an OLB make more sense?

                        10.5 mil guaranteed. rofl.

                        I expect to sign some LBs in the offseason. We also have some young promising guys there already. Laurinaitis would be nice, but not anyone else.

                        We have LBs who can play. We only have 1 WR that can catch more than 30 balls in a season. WR is definitely a bigger need, especially when our QBs need all the help they can get.

                          DE - If we were to go DE in the draft, I would also like to see us go with a prospect in the mould of J. Tuck. Someone who can play end on 1st and 2nd, then swing in to DT on passing downs.

                          QB - I'd prefer to wait until next year to go after an elite talent, rather than reach on a questionable prospect this year. Not to write the season off, but rebuilding mode usually ='s poor records. Thus we should be well positioned next year to go after a top QB.

                          I'm usually not a fan of 2nd-3th round QB's, but trading back in the draft would make sense in order to re-coup some picks lost on KWII. Addressing LB and QB there could prove fruitfull. However, I generally want this every year and it never happens, so I'm not holding my breath.

                          AT 19, WR seems where the value seems to be at. I'd like to see Nicks or DHB. However, we will have a lot of unsatisfied pass catchers if we don't do something at QB. Since we have so many holes and positions that can be upgraded, I'm down with any value grab at 19.

                            If Tampa signs Antonio Bryant to a long-term deal, I would think WR is all but eliminated at that point, no?

                              Yea. It is clear that Bryant, Clayton, and Winslow are the future recieving options (even though Clayton sucks). I think we end up trading up for Sanchez or staying put and taking Jerry or English.
