Desean Jackson finally goes.
Donovan McNabb hmm... this has smellings of McNabb to T.O in hookups not off mic commentary problems. This is a great fit.
Talk about any other sports here.
Don't even dream about it... I wouldn't want Jordan in the Bucs, not even if he were willing to play for free.
Ok, our second pick was even worse than the first. Dexter Jackson from Appalachian st??? With Limas Sweed, Manningham, Dan Connor, or Brian Brohm available we pick Dexter Jackson? wtf??
Well, at least now we have a deep threat. The kid's lightning quick, although that's the only positive about him. Basically, we've used a second round pick in a punt returner...
Word out of Tampa is that Gruden wanted Mendenhall in the first, but finally allowed Kiffin to make the pick, and Kiffin decided to go with Talib. Can't say I like the pick, but I don't hate it either... but Dexter f*cking Jackson in the 2nd??? We could have drafted him in the fourth round, for god's sake.
As for a first day review, this is how I see it:
KC Chiefs: Glenn Dorsey, Branden Albert and Brandon Flowers in day 1. I'm sure they never even dreamed about a bounty like that.
Miami Dolphins: Didn't make a single risky pick, with Long and Merling as their two first picks and adding Henne at the end of the second round. Good job on day 1 by Parcells and Co.
Baltimore Ravens: They got the QB they were looking for and raped the Jags on their trade.
Pittsburgh Steelers: They're here due to luck more than anything. How the f*ck did Mendenhall fall to them? And Limas Sweed in the second round is also a great pick (due to US trading down... FIRE GRUDEN!!!).
Washington Redskins: Traded down and added Malcolm Kelly, Devin Thomas and Fred Davis all in the second round. That's a lot of value.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Traded a sh*tload of picks to pick Derrick Harvey #8 overall. That's a terrible move, if you ask me. They got a value pick with Groves in the second, but he also playes DE, so it wasn't a need.
Tennesse Titans: Chris Jonhson in the first is the worst pick of the draft. Period.
Houston Texans: No wonder that this franchise stinks so much. They trade down and waste their pick in Duane Brown, who was, at best, a second rounder.
San Francisco 49ers: When you draft two guys with "bust potential", you're not having a very good draft...
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: I can live with Talib in the first, but Dexter Jackson in the second was a major reach, and the fact that we traded down with Limas Sweed available makes it even worse.

kind of weird..niners need WR but i didn't see they pick any receiver yet..
Nope. But in the meantime, we've wasted another pick in a f*cking guard... for the third year in a row.

I will finish updating our team's draft picks when the draft is over.
2007 - GoldenStWarriors.com "Rookie of the Year"
Man Al Davis will give the Bucs draft picks next year if you fire Gruden... i too would be happy for Chucky to go. Oh the humiliation.
Deal. Give us back our picks and Gruden can be yours again if you want him.
Let's talk about the draft now that it's over. Some of you (like Cap) have already posted what you think about your draft, but what about the rest of you?. Come on, Bada, XBay, SF3, Pawno... I want to read your take.
Here's mine, round by round:
1.- Aquib Talib (CB): It was, apparently, Monte Kiffin's pick, so I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. Based on talent, it's a good pick, and should be a good fit for the Tampa 2 system. Gruden is saying that he reminds him a lot of Charles Woodson back in the day when he was the Raiders coach.
Still, there are lots of concerns, both about his game (loses focus and can get caught out of positions often, risks too much...) and his character (that everybody knows about).
The jury's out on him. I'm not happy with the pick, but I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt.
2.- Dexter Jackson (WR): Maybe the front office thought it would be funny to have another Dexter Jackson on the team... In any case, this midget is fast, that's for sure, and that's something we needed. But passing on Limas Sweed for a guy like Jackson is a BIG mistake.
3.- Jeremy Zuttah (OG): Didn't allow a single sack in his last two years, is versatile enough to play anywhere on the o-line, although he's clearly a guard... whatever. It's the third year in a row we pick a f*cking guard with one of our first 3 picks.
4.- Dre Moore (DT): I LOVE this pick. Best pick of the whole draft for the Bucs. If he can be a bit more consistent, this guy can become one of the better DTs of this draft, and he also fits a big need. Looks like a steal.
5.- Josh Johnson (QB): Ok. So now we have 7 QBs on our roster. No biggie. Simms will be cut soon, as will Bruce Gradkowski, and Plummer is retired. McCown can also be traded or cut, which means Garcia is gonna be the starter and Griese the backup. Johnson will spend the whole year learning (hopefully).
As for the pick, I also liked it. Johnson hasn't played against top competition, so he's gonna have a hard time adjusting to the NFL, but he's a great project to grow for the future. I mean, a QB that throws 43 TDs passes vs just 1 INT has to be a talented one. From the reports, he's also pretty athletic, which is always a positive. He might end up a bust, but in the fifth round, it's a risk I'm willing to take.
6.- Geno Hayes (LB): Decent value pick. A local guy that will be Derrick Brooks backup. Doubt he'll see the field other than in special teams, but was a good pick in the 6th round.
7.- Cory Boyd (RB): Meh.
