LOVIE SMITH RUMORS & GOSSIP

13 of 14 Draft picks used on Offense for Lovie Smith’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Buccaneers use second pick on Donovan Smith

In a bit of a head-scratcher, the Buccaneers used the 34th overall selection on Penn State offensive tackle Donovan Smith. With Jake Fisher and T.J. Clemmings still available, I don’t understand this move at all. Charles Davis and Mike Mayock praised Smith on NFL Network, speaking about his long arms and how much of a “people mover” he is. Well, I would argue that so is T.J...

This leaves quarterback-needy teams potentially looking into Mike Glennon as a possibility.

During most of his tenure with the Bears his team had a pretty solid defense, and with the exception of one season with a prep school when he coached wide receivers and defensive backs he has always worked on the defensive side of the ball.
