From GM OrangeCrush4082: I am not sold on the playmaking abilities of Luke McCown and Josh Johnson so I am going to go with the huge(6'5 3/8,257 pound) Josh Freeman,QB. Kansas State. I love his athleticism,14 rushing touchdowns in 2008, and his history with rookie Head Coach Raheem Morris, who was the defensive coordinator at Kansas State in 2006.
I had looked at Percy Harvin as a wideout, but its time for Michael Clayton and Antonio Bryant to step up and be a number one reciever and they need an outside linebacker, but many of the premier outside backers were already off the board. I feel the only logical choice for the Bucs is Josh Freeman to be this year's Joe Flacco
Commish's Thoughts: I don't know about any of you, but this just feels like a Buc pick to me. Leaving aside the old regime's prediliction for stacking QBs like cordwood around the facility, this has the marks of the Tampa Bay front office all over it: they are looking to upgrade on offense, and they aren't letting a team need force them into reaching with their #1.
ON THE CLOCK
Detroit Lions (via Dallas Cowboys) are up next. The Lions opened things up with a bang by taking the top defensive player in the draft, so it will be interesting to see which way they look now....
The deadline for this pick is NOON MST, April 5th.. As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid. To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
