Bucs double up on DTs, take Brian Price
By Pat Yasinskas
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Bucs made a bit of a surprise decision by taking UCLA defensive tackle Brian Price with the No. 35 overall pick.
It’s surprising because the Bucs already took defensive tackle Gerald McCoy with their first-round pick and a lot of people were expecting them to go with a receiver here. It is clear they desperately need a receiver, but I kind of like the Price pick. He was graded as a first-round talent by a lot of teams.
Take him and McCoy and make them the starters from the start. Throw Roy Miller into the rotation and the Bucs are much better in this area than they were last year when Chris Hovan and Ryan Sims got pushed all over the field.
Speaking of Hovan and Sims, don’t be surprised if one of them isn’t on the roster on opening day. Heck, don’t be surprised if both of them aren’t on the roster on opening day.
