Moves:

Re-sign Dwan DT

Sign Kevin Boothe RG

Sign Isaac Sopoaga NT (I think our 2013 starting nose tackle could be in the FA market)

Draft:

1 - Xavier Rhodes -- CB Florida St.

-Starting CB, I don't think its a given the Bucs go CB

2 - Terrance Williams -- WR Baylor

-Starting caliber WR imo and I absolutely love how well rounded he is. The most fluid receiver in the draft imo. From his routes to the way he runs to his ability to make big plays. He's right there with Hopkins for me with Patton being slightly behind.

4 - DJ Swearinger -- FS South Carolina

-We need bodies back there in the secondary; he's a good fit and it seems a popular 4th rounder on this board hehe

5 - Hugh Thornton -- OG Illinois

-We need depth on the line because the guys we had this past year in those roles were pretty damn bad. Add Boothe in the FA, get some better backups

6 - Ricky Wagner -- OT Wisconsin (they know how to produce NFL OLs)

-Wagner is worth taking a look at.

6 - K

-Get a kicker :)

-Even though we have a gaping hole at NT with only Fua, I actually like our backup DTs in Kearse, Chandler, and Neblett.

I don't hate it, but Rhodes isn't a good fit for our scheme. Trufant would be a much better CB in Carolina's system....

Rhodes is much better in a man coverage system where he can press and get physical with the WR. Trufant played some press at Washington but is much more familiar, and excels at playing off coverage like the Panthers do.

Where were you in my mock draft thread to explain this to the children who think Tru is a reach at 14 lol...

Eh I normally get called a Pac homer when I try to say anything about their prospects. Try to hold back until the general masses start regarding one of them as a can't miss guy. Certain guys that I know A LOT about (Woods) I'll go to bat for though. Just like if anyone starts questioning Marqise's ability at the next level this time next year I'll rip them to pieces....

I don't like that you didn't take advantage at all with all the young DT coming out in this draft. It's to many DT's in this draft not to at least get one. Then I rather get a Vet CB then add another young one to a already very young group. With all the CB in FA now it will be better to get one there.

I would love that but I would still like to spend 1 pick to take advantage of one of the deepest DT classes in decades.

I really like Jordan Hill from PSU, Montori Hughes from Tenn Martin, and T.J. Barnes from GA Tech as middle to late round prospects. Hill and Barnes more of projects, but have the tools to do really well in time....

That's not real accurate, Josh Thomas almost always played press man, where as Norman would as long as it was a WR he wasn't scared of.

I like Rhodes better and think he'd fit just fine. With Rhodes' size his advantage is his ability to get physical at the line and redirect or disrupt the timing of the route.
