Unless Barkley somehow makes it to us at 7, which is unlikely, and we draft him.... I have to think we're going RB in round 2. This class is just nasty and the talent is superb. Fitz, Nelson, or Chubb and Guice or Michels and I'll walk away super happy.

So whoever picks them will have a winning record and they will all get a thousand, or is that to high for superb?

Scott Smith - There have been 42 running backs taken in the top 10 of the second round since the 1970 merger, and no team has done that more often than the Buccaneers and their six picks.


More than anyone else ehh. You mean all the teams successfully going to the playoffs did it less than us? How could they be so stupid?

Ya I think rd2 is the sweet spot. There's a small chance Guice will be there, but at the least one of Michel or Ronald Jones will. Not the biggest Ronald Jones fan, so I hope it's Michel, but after Jones it starts to get iffy. Can't gamble on Penny making it to our 3rd, and I don't really like anyone in this class beyond that. I think Jones in the least could be a nice complement to Barber. He can bring big play ability and speed to our backfield, while Barber can do the heavy lifting.

There is a history of wanting and agreeing with who the team picks, but it has a very short shelf life, then it becomes what the hell was the team thinking...

Well, idk about winning records. There's so many other factors that go into that. The same RB can go to the Seahawks and be a winner but also go to the Browns and be a loser. But crack 1000? I'd say yes. How many rookie RB cracked 1000 total this year? Like 4 or 5? I think this class could match that.

I think if we seriously upgrade left guard (be it Norwell, Pugh, Nelson, whoever), continue to grow Ali Marpet, and get JR Sweezy back in Seahawks form, Peyton Barber could top 1,000 yards. By Thanksgiving.

If you can run block, you can run.

I guess that's assuming that we don't give up on the running game by HT every week because Winston turned the ball over 50 times and we're down by 2 scores
