We are now less than a month away from the 2015 draft in which of course the Bucs will be selecting first. So as the countdown to being on the clock continues, we will look at some of the past 39 Buccaneers drafts, both good and bad.1978 - The Bucs had the No.1 overall pick again but just didn't need Earl Campbell with Ricky Bell having been drafted No.1 overall the previous year. Hence the trade with the Oilers brought Doug Williams, Jimmie Giles and two high picks and probably is a good one with hindsight. But the selections of Johnny Davis and particularly Brett Moritz with the two No.2 picks were downright terrible and drag the overall rating of this draft down to below average.
I am very pleased to announce a hook-up between Pewter Report and BUCPOWER.COM that will see regular history features appearing on their site that come from here. The first of these is for Ricky Bell, the late great former running back of the Bucs and also includes the video highlight reel I put together for his family in Seattle. Enjoy the new features Buc fans!Click here for the feature link and the clip
