“There would have to be some hellacious pick. There’s five guys on the board I love. You’d have to throw the bank and open the vault for Jason to move down. I’m not saying that we wouldn’t. Just looking at the guys that are there. There’s really six guys that are once-in-a-generation-type players. I feel great about this draft.” 

Those were the words coming from Bruce Arians via an article by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

More picks are better.

If the Buccaneers can find a trade partner who has a ton of picks, one who is especially needy in the QB department like maybe the Giants, then Tampa could score big in this year’s draft.

The only thing currently holding Tampa back is the cap.

With $1,795,449 currently available in the cap, the Buccaneers will need to find a way to free up roughly $10,000,000 just to sign this year’s draft picks.

Gerald McCoy, to save the day?

As sad as it will be for me as a Bucs Fan, losing Gerald McCoy may be the best thing for the future of the team. Whether it’s a trade to the Patriots for a 6th-7th round pick, or a trade to the Bills, which is the current rumor, for a 5th round pick, or being flat out released, it will free up more than enough money for Tampa to sign this year’s picks.

Thursday will be an interesting day, to say the least, and Bucs Life News will be on hand right in front of the stage welcoming live whoever dons our jersey in round one.
