Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Series: The Busts

We’ve seen the 1987 draft that yielded the most amount of starters  and depth for the next 6 years of Bucs football. We’ve also seen how Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks were achieved in the same round, the best single round draft perhaps in NFL history. But sadly, Bucs history is mostly littered with terrible draft picks, worthless rounds of football players, and mistakes by...

Buccaneers Waive P Chase Tenpenny

The Buccaneers announced that they’ve placed P Chase Tenpenny on waivers Thursday, per Scott Smith.

Jameis Winston’s Wonderlic score should impress the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Should the Tampa Bay Buccaneers make Jameis Winston the top pick in the NFL Draft, they will be happy to know his Wonderlic Test places him in good company with current NFL quarterbacks. The FSU product scored a 27 on the test, which is the same score as Peyton Manning got when he took the test before being drafted first overall by the Indianapolis Colts. Does this mean Winston will...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Series: Defense- Hugh Green

Three amazing collegiate linebackers were coming to the NFL: Lawrence Taylor came out first, going to the NY Giants in the 1981 draft with the 2nd pick. Tampa Bay took Hugh Green after E.J. Junior went to the Cardinals. Green was a defensive end with the Pittsburgh Panthers, but was far too light to play that position in the NFL, besides…the Bucs already had Lee Roy Selmon. Green’s...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans thinks the NBA is rigged

There’s a popular (if somewhat stupid) theory that has gone around for a number of years ever since the New York Knicks landed the number one pick in the 1985 draft: the whole thing is rigged. Why? Aside from the actual evidence (See: the Lakers vs. Kings series in 2002), nobody is ever satisfied when their team misses the playoffs and are apparently willing to indulge all kinds...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Counting down the days

Is it April 30th yet? Unfortunately for Buccaneers fans, the answer is no. There’s still over two weeks to go until we finally find out who’s going first overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, and this last stretch may be even more infuriating than what we’ve seen so far.

But it’s their second round pick that is still a mystery.  That pick can go several different directions — offensive line, defensive end, maybe a linebacker. Just like I wrote on BucsBlitz...

NFL Draft: Why Jameis Winston shouldn’t be the first pick

Peyton Manning, Ryan Leaf. Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb. Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin. The NFL draft is no stranger to duos of polarizing college quarterbacks. It seems as if every other year analysts are gifted a pair of young guns to scrutinize from February, to draft day. More often than not, one quarterback develops into a “face of the franchise” player and the other is soon...
