In terms of RBs, I think we'll stick with guys like Quizz and McNichols. Having a 1,400 yard Dougie is nice. Having a guy like Fournette would be awesome. But I think Atlanta has the right blueprint for today's NFL. And I think Koetter wants RBs that fit that mold.

I think, in a perfect world, we'd ship off Dougie and roll with Quizz and McNichols as our primary runners with Sims and McNichols as our third down backs.

It's nice to think about Bell in this offense but not really needed.  Depending on how Donovan plays I could see us going OT in the 1st and moving him to RT which should solidify our line and then go after someone like Guice, Jones II, Chubb, or even maybe Barkley, I'm partial to Ronald Jones in the 2nd or 3rd, if we feel that RB is a big enough need.  While I think Dougie is gone sometime this season, Quizz is not the long term answer and Sims is a decent luxury that can be replaced and shown that he isn't ready to be the main back.  McNichols is interesting and I think will get his fair shot this year to become that #1.

I would love Chubb or Barkley. Both athletic FREAKS

Barkley is a top 10 pick. No chance we are in a position to take him unless he blows his knee or Winston misses the entire year.

 

Chubb may be there for us for the taking though. I'm more on board with upgrading the trenches. Smith isn't dominating in camp and Dotson is not the same player he once was a couple years ago. Although the Bucs are very high on Benenoch and have him cross trained as a swing G/T. You can never have enough good offensive linemen, so, I'm with the first round pick on OT.

Bounce is 34 now and won't be elite forever. CB is gonna be a need too, unless Ryan Smith shows he can be a solid number two.

I forgot. We should definitely consider drafting a CB round 1. Even with Smith being a solid #2, having three good cornerbacks could be of big use. Don't have to play as much zone coverage and can be a lot more aggressive on defense. Sign me up for OT, CB, or DE with the first pick next year.

Yeah im going to be watching corner closely come CFB season. 

 

As far as OT, this is a big year for Donovan Smith. I really believe Benonich is our future at RT. He's been getting first team reps.

Still curious to see how the running back position plays out.  I wouldn't also mind kicking the tires on someone like Carlos Hyde or maybe even Jeremy Hill.  Sims seems to be impressing people and looked good in the preseason game.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that the team has signed tackle Austin Albrecht and cornerback Vernon Harris.

The team also announced that cornerback Maurice Fleming and tackle Cole Gardner have been waived (injured). 

I thought Fleming had a good game against Jax. Turns out I was wrong. Gardner has been on his way out for a while.
