  • Joe T

    I havn't been keeping up with the Tampa Bay offseason, or with their O-line very much. So I was wondering if there was any chance yall would take Joe Thomas at 4 if both Calvin and Gaines Adams were gone. I know Gruden is drooling over Okoye, but would 4 still be too high even in Gruden's eyes?

    Many feel that 4 is not too high for Okoye anymore, but I'm sure we would try to move down if CJ is gone. I don't think we will take Thomas at all because we have a competent starter and good depth at LT, and it's not the most important position on our line, let alone our team.

      Joe Thomas is a definite possibility at #4. He has the ability to anchor the offensive line for a decade and that would be a very nice luxury for Tampa. If neither him or CJ are available then we must do everything we can to trade down.

        Nobody can tell you anything more than there own opinion of what the BUcs will do

        Honestly, I am of the opinion that the BUcs will take Joe Thomas before they take Calvin Johnson, Amobi Okoye, Gaines Adams, or anybody else. Then again in 2004 I thought there was no way possible that the BUcs would pass on Vince Wilfork or Steven JAckson for Michael Clayton. In 2005 everyone was convinced Gruden had fallen head over heels for Mike Williams (thank god that wasnt true). So truth is, ourpick could range from CJ, JT, Quinn, Russell, Branch, Okoye, Willis, Adams, or Anderson and maybe you could throw a couple more names in there.

        My personal big board for the BUcs would look like this

        1) Thomas
        2) CJ
        3) Adams
        4) Okoye
        5) Quinn

        I pray we end up with Joe Thomas

          Oh.. You're one of them. By "them" I am referring to someone wanting anybody over Calvin Johnson.

                Okoye at 4 wouldnt be THAT big of a reach, I think the Bucs are possibly putting this as there draft board

                1.Calvin Johnson
                2.Joe Thomas
                3.Amobi Okoye
                4.Laron Landry


                maybe even quinn, I wouldnt be opposed to any of those player, not even Quinn

                  Over the past month, the Bucs apparent interest in JT has waned some. There was a time when it was a tossup between he and CJ. Now, however, I think we would trade down with ARI if he is available when we pick.

                  I'd personally like to have him if CJ is gone.

                    Maybe that has to do with signing Luke Petitgout, and not signing a true DT?

                      Ummmm, everybody knew that Gruden fell in love with Cadillac at the Senior Bowl. I would have bet anything that Cadillac would become a Buc if available in 2005.

                      Mike Williams was the ultimate smokescreen, nothing more. If they really liked him, Im sure that Detroit would trade him here.

                        I like that board but I really think Gaines Adams should be there somewhere.

                          If the pick comes down to Okoye and Adams, who do you think the Bucs will take?

                            Good question, and as much as Gruden like's Okoye (at least as a person), I dont think that you can pass on the superior talent of Gaines Adams.

                            Reaching on a guy by 5-10 picks is fine when you pick in the latter part of the round (like Davin Joseph), but not at #4. Screwing up at #4 can set your franchise back a few years.

                              Thomas would be my optimal pick if we weren't able to trade down, however I would prefer we trade down and pick up a DL along with an extra 2nd rounder.
