Countdown to the 2015 NFL draft
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. 1977 - Any review of this draft is going to weigh up whether the Bucs should have taken Tony Dorsett over Ricky Bell with the first overall selection. For John McKay, it was a no-brainer as Bell had been his tailback at USC. Whether Dorsett would have been as successful with the Bucs as he was with the Cowboys will of course remain a mystery. Lewis and Hannah were great selections and the trade for Richard Wood was simply outstanding. Overall, one would have to call this draft a limited success and certainly above average when grading every Buccaneer draft since 1976.
T Lomas Brown  2002  (52) DE Mike Clark  1987  (56) CB Leonard Johnson  2012- (25) TE Danny Noble  2012-13  (26) Lomas Brown finished a long and successful NFL career with the Bucs and won himself a Super Bowl ring in the process.  Leonard Johnson has spent the past three seasons as the team’s primary nickel back but could face competition for the role from newcomer Sterling Moore in camp this year.
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!
