The Buccs have had an amazing draft so far.
poor mayock. his voice is gone...
UConn fan's persepctive: Bruce Campbell screwed up by picking Maryland over UConn.
UConn's coaches have developed walk-ons who didn't play high school football into NFL draft picks who started from day 1 (Donald Thomas for the Dolphins) and guys who didn't have a single other Div. 1 offer and made them into second rounders (William Beatty of the Giants), and next year Zach Hurd comes out.
How does a 4-star recruit with incredible athleticism (big men should not be able to move that fast) pick a school like Maryland, and leave it without having learned the basic skills of his position? He's incredibly raw. and he hasn't been chosen.
I know why he didn't pick UConn. It's because his father, a bigtime hoopster at Providence, sneered at the in-state school. It was a big mistake. UConn coaches know how to develop OLs.
I was thinking the same thing.. He's not drinking enough water..
Pitta has got to go soon, he seems like an easy safe solid pick. Love to have him.
Anybody for a big boy for the front 7? Lane, Wootton, Woods?
Imagine if someone were to say before the draft that Mike Williams of Syracuse would go before Campbell. You would have thought that guy was nuts. There has to be something drasticallly wrong with Campbell.
I'd be happy with that. I still want Dwyer though because he has droppppeeedddd.
I'm with you. I've said Lane elsewhere.
I wouldn't mind Wootton or Lane.
I didn't see this thread before...
yeah, williams from syracuse quit his team and is still drafted ahead of many talented guys...he's supposed to be talented but still.
Lendale White traded to Seattle for a pick
We have our favorites. Howeever, we don't know why guys like Wootton have been passed over.
Totally agree. Value matches need.
Wootton would be a rotational player right away, potential starter.
wooten is 6'6' 270..too small for DE, isn't he?
Love to see Eric Norwood land with the Patriots as well.
He's another guy who didn't have a great combine but he is a football player and has a nose for the ball.
If you like Brandon Spikes, you should like Eric Norwood.
Pete Carroll has had a great weekend,
I forgot about Norwood. I'd love to pick him up here.
He's not just talented, he's obscenely talented. He's a first round pick from the neck down.
I'd have been happy taking a chance on him in the fourth round.
NFL coaches think he sucks, maybe.
