Can't be worse than drafting another fullback we'll never use.


Grabbing him would be just as much of a waste...

7th rounders should be DBs or DEs...

Not only are they positions of need and positions we've sucked balls at for over a decade, but they can also play STs...

Someone should tell Jason Licht that, because so far he's only drafted two players in the 6th and 7th rounds to see the field for us in the regular season. We'll never forget you, Robert Herron. Thanks for that one touchdown. (edit: I forgot Devante Bond played last year. He got 3 tackles.)

I'm not saying there aren't better ways to spend the pick, just that it can't be any worse than picking Dan Vitale or Joey Iosefa only to cut them before the season even starts. It would still probably be a waste, but at least it would be an interesting waste.

I'm down for a Day 3 developmental OT, but otherwise we should be set at OL. Hoping Nelson goes before our pick pushing Chubb down.

Just how much better is Nelson compared to Hernandez?

Hernandez has the opportunity to be a good professional guard. Nelson has the opportunity to be the best guard since Larry Allen hung them up.

Nelson has better movement skills and thus is more effective is pass pro and when pulling. Both are dominant run blockers at the point of attack.

Are you arguing that because Larry Allen only won a singular Superbowl, he wasn't any good?

Lol.

Good luck with that one.

Cosey Colemen was a 2nd rounder and Kerry Jenkins was in fact undrafted. Neither guy was more than an average Guard. That Bucs Oline was a bunch of overachievers that year imo and one of the least talented Olines for a SB winning team.
