we already have an injury prone DE in Bowers and a scheme constricting DE In Clayborn. I dont really want another potential Injury prone DE
scheme constricting???? meaning he can only play in a 4-3??
we are a 4-3 and hopefully will always continue to be
Now that being said this years draft and free agent pool is full of talent so i think grabing a leader and all round player like Sam Montgomery to play the left side would be huge. then going after a CB in the second on top of signing a free agent
top free agent targets in order that i feel would fit in Tampa
drc is the only corner on that list id even take a whiff of.....munnerlyn and cason..hell naw
Dont think Sam Montgomery is that special personally or that he or mingo or any of the "elite" pass rushers will be available at 20 something when we pick.
Montgomery is falling down most draft boards because he and the team are not meeting expectations this season. But he has been a leader for the LSU Defense since becoming a full time starter his sophomore year and he is well rounded as a pass rusher and run defender.
as far as draft position goes right now we are expected to draft 19th over all while looking at walter footballs draft. But we could trade that pick and the 4th rounder we got from the Patriots for the 15th pick from the Rams. We could then select Montgomery a pick ahead of the Saints. Then take Desmond Trufant in the second round and sign one of the Free agent CB
I dont wanna listen to a lot of fans ***** about the corner we go get...powers and cox are on a similar level to eric wright...munnerlyn and cason i think arent even as good as wright.
if you wanna sign a corner i say go high end and really try and make a push...id like to see a drc, grimes level of corner grabbed drc being young and still developing prob is the best option.
Me personally I wanna see corner in the first no matter what, get the talent up...if its too much of a reach than look at safety if one hasnt been signed to replace ronde, if we already signed one then its a crap shoot.
Id hate trading up in the 1st...you take that 4th and our 3rd you can prob move back into the 2nd and get a late pick, id like something like that. Dom pulled off some magic last year id like to see that again just not in the 1st
sign DRC and Byrd...corner in the 1st...lb, cb, dline in the 2nd and 3rd...tight end and oline after that
i wouldnt be surprised if they grab a rb in the 3rd round or later with them obv. wanting to get rid of blount...get a back to go behind martin and ahead of ware....could also see a speedy slot guy in the 4th or later
As far as replacing Blount goes I wouldn't mind signing Brian Leonard he would give us a between the tackles runner who could play fullback and he would give us another receiving option at running back
The FA class in CB's is very weak but there are intriguing options at TE we could look at being Fred Davis and Jared Cook and OT class is great Jake Long, Brandon Albert, Clady, and Vollmer all MUCH better than Dotson.
Way too much money invested in the offensive line...fred davis is old I like Cook tho..wouldnt mind getting him
Byrd or Goldson would be a great pickup....an elite veteran safety to show Mark Barron the ropes, would give us one of the best safety pairs in the league
I have to admit I have not seen a ton of J. Banks play but the more I see Xavier Rhodes, the more I hope he is a Buccaneer in 2013....He has everything you want in a corner at the professional level.
ill tell you guys this right now.. im from AZ and ive got to see DRC play and its super streaky at times. He would be a good third option but at the price it wouldn't make sense. DRC blows a lot of coverages. I like grimmes better
Milliner in the 1st, Tony Jefferson in the 2nd would be my ideal start to the draft!
