The Tampa Bay Buccaneers snatched running back Doug Martin with the No. 31 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Martin may be the strongest running back in the 2012 class, and will provide the Buccaneers with the power back that they covet in the ground attack after LeGarrette Blount failed to get the job done last season. Martin has No. 1 fantasy back potential, while the stock of Blount looks to take a nosedive. Martin is bound to be a hot ticket high in keeper drafts, and will be an enticing selection as a mid-rounder in standard leagues as well. Great landing spot for the Boise St. bruiser.

First-round draft pick Doug Martin is projected to work as Tampa Bay's No. 1 running back over LeGarrette Blount in 2012, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.
Blount failed to perform up to expectations in a dismal 2011 season for the Buccaneers, and is better suited for a complementary role behind former Boise St. bruiser Martin. The rookie also brings more to the...
With the addition of rookie running back Doug Martin, Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com believes he’ll start over LaGarette Blount and it makes perfect sense because one could argue that Martin is already a better all around running back.
The great thing about Martin is that he already has the pass protection skills needed to succeed in the NFL coming right out of college. Not to mention...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded up into the first round to select the 2012 NFL Draft’s number two rated back in Doug Martin.
The Bucs already have LaGarette Blount in the fold but could not pass up the chance for a franchise running back late in the first round.
While the two should split carries pretty evenly at the start of the season, Martin is the superior player and should...
7. S Mark Barron DHmmm, Mark Barron and a 4th round pick…or Morris Claiborne? That shouldn’t have been a tough question, but it was for the Buccaneers, who seem to have gotten it wrong. I know the Buccaneers had Barron higher than Claiborne on their board, but that’s ridiculous. Claiborne is a better player at a position of higher value. I had Barron in the 20s on my board...
When things go bad for celebrities, meaning that they no longer have money, they turn to reality TV. The latest sap (ha!) is former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman and current chapter 7 bankruptcy victim Warren Sapp. It seems that the big mouth and wide body will be grabbing a gavel and presiding over his [...]
There have been multiple reports that former NFL defensive tackle Warren Sapp will be starring in a new series for The NOC, which is a YouTube channel that has over 11,000 subscribers.
Sapp will be playing a judge in the show. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com received a text from Sapp that confirmed he’ll be on the show.
“Dishing out a little blind justice!” Sapp wrote...
Cody Johnson split his time at Texas between single back and fullback, and he signed a free agent contract on Monday to play the latter with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“That’s the fun part of the draft, when you see teams move around on the board,” Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said Saturday night, not long after wrapping up the three-day NFL Draft. “You do a lot of planning for all the scenarios, and then it takes patience and aggressiveness.”
