We don’t really get deep into our draft cycle until the Combine in late February. That’s about the point when you can really start to formulate an idea on players, the Senior Bowl and the Shrine Game are over, the Combine kicks off several weeks of pro days and two months later it all culminates in the draft.
As I mentioned yesterday, if you’re interested in checking out what kind of coverage you can expect click the “Big Board” tab up above or take a look at last year’s draft capsule.
This year you can expect even more. We’re still doing our big board, our top 100, our mocks, our positional rankings and our team needs but we’re expanding the coverage in every way and even adding a few features. Starting today we’ll begin posting our lead-up draft coverage. Pre-pre-draft coverage if you will. I’m talking preliminary rankings, player profiles and mock draft picks from around the internet.
I will just say this, keep your eyes peeled for player features. We are going to try to avoid inundating you with every single player profile we can write. Rather when we profile a guy it’s because we think he would make a fantastic fit in Tampa. Not everyone will get a write-up, sometimes we’ll skip the obvious top players at a position for a guy the Bucs could realistically take in a middle or late round. So when you see a player profile go up, pay attention.
Regardless, we’re working hard on this coverage, so stay tuned and go Bucs!
