Trade for Devonte Wyatt?
April 27, 2022
What could be more fun on the eve of the draft than remembering how Gerald McCoy put his foot down to label the best defensive tackle in this draft.
And now it looks like the Bucs could trade for him.
Daniel Jeremiah is the NFL Network’s top draft guru, the former college QB turned respected NFL scout found his calling as a year-round draft analyst and was mentored by Mike Mayock. Joe knows GMs like Jeremiah, and he still has just enough close contacts from his days in the Scouting community to be dangerous.
Jeremiah’s latest mock draft appeared on NFL.com today and Joe noticed he didn’t have Georgia DT Devonte Wyatt coming off the board in the first round. named Wyatt as the Bucs’ 27th overall pick on Thursday night.
McCoy likes what Wyatt is, a natural pass thrower, calling him “skinny” and a natural 1-on-1 pitcher with a refined range of motion. And McCoy says if the moves don’t work, Wyatt has the power to win.
Joe wonders how nervous Detroit might be if they’re targeting a quarterback. Maybe the Lions would trade their No. 32 pick and a fourth-rounder to the Bucs for the No. 27 spot? And the Bucs just might do it if their intel tells them they could tag Wyatt at No. 32.
As for an additional fourth-round pick, Bucco Bruce Arians himself said this week that there’s a ton of value in this rounds 3-5 draft.
