Tampa Bay's Picks
#5 Alex Smith QB Utah
The drafting of Mike Williams and Ronnie Brown left me with having to deal with JOhn Gruden giving me those Chucky eyes. Gruden believes that a smart QB like this would be able to run his complicated offense. The Tampa Bay draft room gave me a standing ovation after this pick
#36 Matt Roth DE Iowa
Not to be outdone by Gruden, Monte Kiffin jumps on the table and screams that Matt Roth is still available and loves his motor and nasty play. Both starting DE's are 30+ y/o and not to mention limited depth at the end position. THis pick keeps Kiffin happy and the defense should be come top priority come the 5th- 7th and 2006.
#71 Marion Barber RB III Minnesota
Yes i could have taken Cadillac with the #5, but I believe we got the same type of back in Barber III. Can contribute right away at special teams, nice hands, shifty and has a little power to his running style. Also shared time with another back. Barber was the 5th rated RB on our board.
#91 Vincent Jackson WR N Colorado
This is a need pick and great value as this kid has great size and speed at the Wr position. I would hope that he could develop into a great blocker in the running game as well since he has the size to dominate opposing CB's.
In the 4th round a few names came to mind at our picks that went no higher than #118. THe names i'm gonna throw out are: Adam Snyder G Oregon, Michael Roos OT Eastern Washington, Kirk Morrison MLB San Diego St, Garett Cross TE/HB from Cal and Craphonso THorpe from FSU. Also looking at Chase Lyman in the 5th.
We plan on bringing in some guys to compete for the #2-#3 WR's positions since Galloway is pretty much a one dimesional WR.
