NFL Draft Results, BUCS Two New Offensive Linemen.

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, the Bucs picked two offensive linemen with the 1st and 2nd round picks. I should have never doubted my Bucs. With all the talk of the Bucs picking an offensive linemen in the 1st round with the 23rd overall pick, I was happy. Then talks changed and it was a WR (which would have been ok), then before the start of the draft it was a defensive cornerback, which I was never on board with (matter of fact I hated that Idea). Well with the 23rd overall pick the Bucs drafted offensive guard Davin Joseph from the Sooners. Then with the 2nd round pick 59th overall, the Bucs picked another offensive linemen, Jeremy Trueblood from Boston College. This is great news for the Bucs. We have fixed our weak offensive line. Cadillac must be truly happy. Even though I was on the Marcus McNeill (OT) bandwagon, who went to San Diego, I am really happy that we went O Line for the first two rounds. I am sure some Bucs fans (Bucs Best Blog) might be pissed with these picks, but this is what is best for the Bucs future. As a season ticket holder I can't wait to get in those stands and watch Cadillac run all over teams now behind a better line then the Bucs have ever had.

Coach Grudens thoughts on our 1st round draft pick.
"I think naturally his best position is guard," said Bucs head coach Jon Gruden.
"He played left tackle at Oklahoma last year out of necessity. They lost a
couple of guys to injury and because of his athleticism, he moved out there and
got it done, frankly, at left tackle. I see him naturally as an inside player,
he is explosive and strong. I think his athletic ability will help him as a
puller. We like to do that with our guards. But I think in a pinch situation, if
we need him to go out there and play left tackle, he has proven he can do that.
If we need him to go out there and play left tackle, I'm sure Davin would be
willing to do that. But we pencil him in now at the right guard position, and
we're excited about that."

I was truly shocked when last night I heard the Texans signed Mario Williams over Reggie Bush. Then today a Bucs Fans worst nightmare happened, Bush goes to the Saints. This sucks bad. Now we face him twice a year. At least this will help rebuild the Saints fan base since Katrina. How about Matt Leinart falling to the 10th pick. However he might have came out with the best team. With Arizona's talented WR's and a year sitting out learning the system, he could become the man. MORE TO COME.

I was glad to see the Bucs take Davin Joseph. He should have a great career. Because of necessity he played out of possion last season at OU.

The ironic thing is that now you have a Sooner protecting Chris Simms.

This is true, but I agree Davin Joseph Should really help our Line. I think this makes Cadillac even better now.
