Bucs set to bring in McCoy, Suh for final look
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have vowed to get it turned around through the draft. That’s pretty apparent as they’ve taken the sit-on-their-hands approach to free agency. So that makes a draft in which they own 11 picks and five of the first 101 super critical for coach Raheem Morris, who faces a win-or-else proposition.
With the third pick in the draft, the Bucs looked locked in to getting one of the top defensive tackle prospects even if they could use help at just about every position. They’ll begin kicking the tires on the top prospects soon. Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy will visit the Bucs beginning on Sunday, reports Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune. Then, Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh will arrive for a visit on Tuesday.
Many are forecasting Suh to be selected No. 2 overall by the Detroit Lions with Sam Bradford just about everyone’s choice to go No. 1 to St. Louis. So, McCoy could be the guy for the Bucs, who need a disruptive force in the middle of their line. They could use a pass rusher too. And, well, help across the board. Stay tuned.
