#1:Jameis Winston QB FSU

All bucs fan knew we needed a QB and we got one that most bucs fan will be happy about. Getting our future QB is something i am hyped for, great pick L&L.
Grade:A

#34:Donovan Smith OT PSU

I really like this pick, at first i wanted him as an 3rd rounder, but we took him at the top of the 4th. At first i thought it was a bit of an reach, but now i really do like this pick. We had needed some one to take over the LT or RT spot. Smith is the perfect guy to do it.
Grade:B+

#61:Ali Marpet OG Hobart

Another great pick. Marpet was a guy i wanted us to take and we traded up for him. While marpet didn't really have tough players to guard since he was in D-III, but he was an standout at the senior bowl and the combine. He is the perfect fit for RG.
Grade:B+

#124:Kwon Alexander OLB LSU

Yet another trade up, and was confused with this pick at first, but the more i read on this guy the more i like. He is one fast player and is very versatile. We needed depth badly and he can even challenge Danny for the startign SAM spot.
Grade:B+

#162:Kenny Bell WR Nebraska


Love this guy, really speedy and has an insane vertical. Plus that afro is sick. Should play the slot postion for us, definitely an upgrade over herron. Great pick.
Grade:A

#184:Kaelin Clay WR Utah

Now i do not like this pick, we just drafted a WR and we go ahead and draft another one. Not really super speedy will probably be our KR/PR, but i am sure Bell could have done that easily.
Grade:C-

#231 Joey Iosefa FB Hawaii

No idea who this guy is, has an alsott type build, but just not as quick on his feet as him. Probably won't make the team but really don't know anything about him.
Grade:C

Overall:
I really liked this draft, really hyped for winston and can't wait to see how they all do on the field.
Grade:B

The last pick was a real head scratcher

Last two were, really don't know why you don't take drummond, prewitt or an DE with those picks.

id give similar grades. Think Winston and Kenny are gonna develop some nice chemistry together on and off the field. Also a big fan of Ali Marpet, what's not to like about him?

Not sure if Kenny Bell will play slot for you, or if he even can. He literally never lined up there in college, I don't think. I realize VJax and Evans man the edges, and Bell doesn't fit their 6'5 role as a backup, but if you're intent on moving him inside, he might have a learning curve as it'll all probably be new to him.

I wanted Smith in a trade down but seeing how far Fisher went, he was probably worth taking at 34. I hope he works out at LT. Not sure how many teams before ever started a rookie LT and rookie QB. Anyway, he'll have Mankins next to him so he should be okay. It'll definitely be some growing pains this season. With that size though I fully expect running lanes to be open for Martin/Sims. No excuses for our OL coach we actually have some hogs.

Clay was a fine pick. We're not drafting him as a WR, he's going to be solely a KR/PR, which we needed bad.

Exactly, we brought him in to be our Tavon Austin at a much better price. Can can be a weapon in kick return and punts. Could line him up in the backfield and throw a screen to him or even line him up in the slot. He is really just a weapon, not so much a WR. I liked the pick personally, especially for a 6th.

The only pick I don't like is Iosefa. I'm fine with or like all the other ones. But we have Lane. How did we improve the FB position? He definitely doesn't improve our RBs.

I also hope that we bring in either Kyle Loomis or Kyle Christy to push Koenon in camp.

Solid grades. I know everyone knows my take on Winston but with him being a buc, I'll hope he turns it around and proves me wrong. I cannot turn my back on being a life time buc fan so.

Love the Kenny bell pick. I don't know much about clay. He's explosive in the open field so special teams is probably his role. Alexander is a depth pick who will push lansanah. My gripe is Alexander needs to bulk up into the 235 range.


Coming out of the draft I feel the holes we did not address are DE, FS, and Rb.

While i agree we didn't draft one we signed one of my fav FS in hackett.

Lol no offense but relying on a udfa to fill the need isn't exactly addressing it.

Conte is the answer.

Well he shouldn't have been a UDFA. He had great talent but a bad combine dropped his stock
