But imagine a 4-3 where instead of having a knifing 3 tech, our 3 tech was more powerful/big than quick/fast...

To kind of pull from TD a bit, imagine Allen or StevieT at NT with Vea at the 3...

THAT'S our future...


You could be right. Though I wouldn't simply declare that this is the plan in place because of the Vea pick. I think if we're in a position to draft a Sapp/McCoy/Aaron Donald/John Randle type like Ed Oliver, Christian Wilkins (a McCoy clone), etc, we will.

It's less being a Bucs fan and more being a football fan, but if you're running a 4-3, I think you need a guy who can provide an interior rush.



I tend to agree, but every DT that has been brought in has been in more of the mauler mold more than the McCoy sackmaster mold. That's the way Mike Smith worked in Jax too, he had two physical DTs that didnt get a lot of sacks but caused disruption.

Projecting some needs for next year, OL (RG or RT depending if Cappa works out), CB (again if our young CBS pan out), SS, DL. Possibly MLB if we let Kwon walk.

Beckwith will own that spot sooner or later.

One would think, if Kwon walks. But I think we get creative and find a way to keep him. He’s a captain/pro bowler (even though it may not be warranted IMO).

If we do let him walk, it could be interesting because Beckwith is a thumper at MLB, maybe they want the athletic type ala Rashaan Evans?

But I’m hoping we go OL/DL heavy again next year early in the draft. Shore up Dot or Sweezy’s replacement or get a young edge to groom behind JPP or Curry.

Is it August yet?

Where the 53 is at on paper, it's fair to say that the way the staff feels about the 2018 draft class in a year will determine the 2019 draft class. The only position where there isn't someone that feels like exciting young talent on some level (again, on paper) is right tackle. And hey, maybe OBP likes Benenoch as that guy. But Watson, Whitehead, Jones, Igwebuike, Stewart, Davis, Cappa - they'll determine what feels like a huge need next April. Watson and Whitehead especially. Jones and Cappa will get another year to show their stuff as Day Two picks. But if OBP doesn't feel good about Watson or Whitehead/Igwebuike going foward, those positions will be targeted again.

...Cause they're both projected top 5 picks at this point. Especially Oliver, who most say will be the first defensive player off the board and could go as high as 2nd overall.



Agreed...

I'll throw my hat in the ring with:

Zach Allen DE Boston College
6'5" 285lbs


If he continues to improve, I think he'll end up being one of those later 1st/early 2nd DE picks...

And his size fits what we seem to be looking to do with our DL/DE group...

The days of us trotting out 245lb-255lb rushers, from the DE spot, are over...

Side note, ya better produce this year Spence...just sayin..
