Scouting Tampa Bay Buccaneers K Roberto Aguayo

I’ll admit that when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave up their third- and fourth-round draft picks to trade back into the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, I had no idea who they planned on picking. I was hoping for FS Vonn Bell out of Ohio State, but the team had already addressed the secondary in the first round. It was possible that they’d add another defensive back, but I...

What to buy from Buccaneer OTA’s

Offseason OTA’s are underway for the Buccaneers, and like their 31 counterparts around the league there is boundless optimism surrounding the team. OTA’s are enjoyable and fun for this very reason, but also dangerous from the standpoint of expectations. Everyone looks good, and sometimes we fall into the trap of buying into certain players, themes, or roster orders before the...

Precedents suggest Roberto Aguayo pick wasn’t stupid at all

They say it takes several years to judge most draft picks, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ decision to trade up in order to take kicker Roberto Aguayo in the second round of this year’s draft was immediately and roundly ridiculed. And those doing the ridiculing had a case. After all, Aguayo became the first kicker in a decade to be drafted that high. Good — nay, great — kickers...

Is ASJ’s future in jeopardy?

It’s bad enough when a player has to overcome adversity coming back from an injury. It’s also bad when a player is fighting to keep his name relevant. Put both together and you have a player where his future with his team is in doubt. That’s the position Buccaneers’ tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is in. There is no doubt that Seferian-Jenkins is a talented player. His...

Scouting Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Noah Spence

In continuation of my series of scouting reports on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 2016 rookie class, I took a look at former Eastern Kentucky and Ohio State defensive end Noah Spence. At one point in time, Spence was thought of as a potential top ten pick, but then he was banned for life from the Big Ten and forced to transfer due to multiple failed drug tests. After getting clean...

Buccaneers OC: I was ‘dead wrong’ about Jameis Winston

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken admits he was “dead wrong” about his initial impression of second-year quarterback Jameis Winston. “I think that’s one thing that’s a misnomer,” Monken said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “I think from the outside you would’ve looked at it with all the things that were publicized in the past about him and who...

Buccaneers had first-round grade on kicker Roberto Aguayo

When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded up in the second round to land kicker Roberto Aguayo out of Florida State, the move was met with widespread amusement, if not downright knee-slapping laughter. After all, kickers are usually late-round picks, if not undrafted free agents. It’s a good thing, then, that the Bucs didn’t draft him in Round 1, which is the value they attributed...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers gets the nod for most improved in NFC South

The free agency period has come and gone.  The 2016 NFL draft has come and gone.  Many teams made major moves, while others did nothing to improve their team.  One thing that is for certain, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the most improved team in the NFC South.

Top five players in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came into the NFL as one of the expansion teams in the mid-1970s.
