Letter grade D

It’s hard to give the Bucs a good grade when out of the gate they went with Houston over Kerrigan. Next a Center is grabbed over another DE or LB with Bailey and Moch on the board not to sure, add in that Wisnieski is more of a center which we have the 3rd highest paid in the league in Faine, and a good backup in Zuttah. If we wanted to go oline there, Cannon would probably get the look(before the news of his cancer) In the 3rd Culliver is MASSIVE reach, add in that while S is a need, ANOTHER DE or LB brings more value to a team that was 28th against the run compared to 7th against the pass. Another reach with Bynes. He shouldn’t be even considered til the 5th. Todman is probably the first pick where value and need met, saved it from being an F. Tarpinain is another reach, I like him as a player but have mostly seen a PFA grade on him. DVD is a great pick and once again saves the grade from being an F. An athletic late corner is what this team needs. Regardless if Aqib plays another down for this team our FO is very high on both EJ Biggers and Myron Lewis. Add in Ronde Barber and the best a rookie would possibly be is a nickel back, and you just don’t use a premium pick in one when you have as many needs as we do. The Grant pick is just an ok pick. He would compete with Demar Dotson to stay on the roster.
