  • Bucs were not going to take Brohm at 58 if he fell

    From Pewter Report:

    On the surface, it looked like Tampa Bay had made a terrible mistake by trading down with Jacksonville in the second round from the 52nd spot to the 58th selection in which the Bucs picked up the Jaguars’ fifth-rounder in 2008 and seventh-rounder in 2009, in addition to selecting Appalachian State wide receiver Dexter Jackson.

    Pittsburgh drafted Texas receiver Limas Sweed with the 53rd pick, Tennessee drafted Eastern Michigan defensive tackle Jason Jones with the next pick, followed by Rutgers running back Ray Rice, who was drafted by Baltimore. But the real kicker was the selection of back-to-back quarterbacks – Brian Brohm and Chad Henne – who went to Green Bay and Miami, respectively, at picks 56 and 57.

    Sources tell Pewter Report that none of those players would have been drafted by Tampa Bay at number 58 had they slipped there. The Bucs liked Jones, but not in the second round, while Rice and Sweed were not high on Tampa Bay’s draft board at all.

    As for the quarterbacks, Brohm and Henne might have carried high grades on Tampa Bay’s draft boards, but the team could have made a conscious effort to not take a QB this year as Pewter Report reported on Friday as the team already has five on its roster, not including the retired Jake Plummer.

    If Tampa Bay wanted either Brohm or Henne, it had two chances to draft them and passed both times.

    Have you also read that they think Luke McCown could be their QB of the future?

    Just thought I'd add that.

      He could be. I think we should give him a chance.

      Okay we didn't draft a QB in the 2nd, but we made a huge upgrade on special teams and we got more speed on offense with dexter jackson.

      Added elite OL depth with Jeremy Zuttah. Potential starting nose tackle in Dre Moore.

      I mean Luke McCown does have to hold off Josh Johnson. We took him in the 5th round. I am not a fan of his because he doesn't have an arm, but he has great mechanics and mobility...average size. The pick is starting to grow on me, though I would have preferred Steve Johnson in the 5th or 6th rounds.

        elite OL depth
        Lol what is elite depth?

        Tampa needs to stop talking about Jake Plummer. He isn't comming back, the dude loves racket ball.

          Having very talented depth players...not pro bowlers but players that will step in and the offense wont' miss a beat.

          Donald Penn played very well last year at LT.
          Anthony Davis is a veteran that can play any position but C.
          Jeremy Zuttah will learn at guard and center. High upside player that I am hoping will push Davin Joseph to be a pro bowler.

          Please name one team with better OL depth than the Buccaneers. I can't think of one.

              McCown was nice when he was drafted by Cleveland but I havent really seen him since the trade.

                that doesn't say they weren't going to take him.

                It says they could have decided not too if he fell to them

                  Is Elite Depth similar to what KC and Herm wanted with a backup TE?

                    Teams leak crap like that all of the time in an effort to justify their decisions.

                    Just like the Vikings leaked that someone else was going to take Tarvaris Jackson in the 3rd round if the Vikings hadn't traded up to get him in the 2nd. Just like the Vikings leaked that someone was going to take John Booty if they Vikings hadn't traded up to get him in the 5th. (A worthless pick for a guy who won't ever see the starting lineup in Minnesota.) Now, Tampa Bay is leaking false information to justify them trading down and missing out on the top QBs.

                    WFB Comments on Vikings @ Steelers Game Rigging
                    PuppyPuncher:"It sure was nice enough of Roger Goodell to let the refs from Ark-Florida officiate the Vikings-Steelers game"
                    NoNonsenseCoach:"As a Steelers fan living in Pittsburgh I can still admit that tripping penalty was a complete ghost call."
                    Simonds:"The tripping call was awful, yes, but there were a number of other absurd calls that went against the Vikings, including a DEFENSIVE delay of game penalty against the Vikings only called after a failed attempt to convert a third and 2 by the Steelers. Even the commentators were utterly floored that the refs made that call."
                    Wraith36444:"A shady tripping call on Minnesota essentially gave the game to the Steelers. The Vikings were the better team, but it is too hard to beat a decent team and the refs. Oh and Harvin is the man."
                    MaineMan:"I have to agree that it was an awful call and that it changed the outcome. Overall a great game by the Vikes and tragic that the well-deserved victory was stolen away like that."
                    PaddyPatriot:"I've seen this play and I have to agree, I can't believe they called it tripping"
                    Johndoe:"You know the officiating is bad when a Steeler's fan, like myself, thinks it was pretty bad."
                    Steelers_Pens_Fan:"I will admit that the whole "tripping" thing probably shouldn't have been a flag."
                    ZN0rseman:"It's great to know that good old fashioned pro football game rigging is still alive and well in America."
                    Klunker18:"I'm with Z on this one. Definitely one of those games that makes you wonder if the NFL wants certain teams to win."
                    TRICKaz"I agree that was a BS call"
                    InjuredReserve:"Have yet to hear anyone say it was the right call. Seems as if the Vikings were cheated a bit."
                    Eagles4Life:"Coaches just need to be able to challenge penalties"
                    EL_Guapo:"The tripping call was bad, the delay of game was stupid Either way, the Vikings showed they are a top team."
                    EllijayFalconsFan:"The tripping penalty was rediculous."
                    Archon095:"Even as a Steeler fan I agree that the call was bull."
                    BroncosCon:"I'm sorry that was a total bull**** call and it changed the outcome of the game. Pittsburgh still won, but it was almost like Denver winning at Cincy."

                    Tony Dungy:"The Vikings are just one bad tripping penalty away from being undefeated.
                    Jon Gruden:"That was just a bad, bad call. It cost the Vikings an important win at Pittsburgh, and it could really hurt them in the post season."

                      Maytbe there will be a group of 2nd tere quarterbacks next year like there was this year. Doubt it but it could happen.

                        If we wanted Brohm we could have taken him at 52, which tells me we really didn't want him.

                          Not trying to be a smart @ss, but the Browns also have good depth on the OL.

                          Projected starting 5: Joe Thomas LT, Eric Steinbach LG, Hank Fraley OC, RG will be open competition with;
                          OG Rex Hadox, OG/OC La Charles Bentley and OG Seth McKinny and Ryan Tucker RT.

                          Depth: Who ever loses out at the competition for RG, OT Kevin Shaffer (Can play left or right side), OG/OC Lennie Friedman (can back up all interior line positions), RT Nat Dorsey and OG Isaac Sowells who would make most other NFL rosters , but he will have trouble keeping his roster spot this year with the addition of Rex Hadox and if Bentley can make a return from his injuries. They have some other players, but have no realistic chance at a roster spot in 08 so we wont even go there.

                            The Arizona Cardinals do it the worst. Pfft... Joe Thomas... we have Levi Brown! Leodis Who? This guy is Antonio Chromartie's cousin. No other CBs are even on our board!

                              The Browns do have good depth on their OL as well. But they aren't nearly as strong as the Bucs at RG and RT.

                              They obviously have a better LT though. Pretty even OLs.
