Draft IDL Marvin Wilson out of FSU
The Buccaneers are likely going into their final season with Ndamukong Suh. Much likely JPP, his production has been solid, but age and expensive contracts don’t mix well, especially for a team that will still have its sights set on a Super Bowl.
If Tampa Bay can’t keep Suh on its roster, drafting Marvin Wilson would kill two birds with one stone. Wilson would come in on a cheaper contract than Suh and would still be able to perform at a high level. In addition to the more reasonable contract, the Bucs would have a new defensive lineman locked up for the future as well.
Wilson will want to show out against the run during this season at FSU if he wants to attract the attention of Todd Bowles for his defense, but the fit is about as perfect as they come.
Wilson has the size and speed to replace Suh immediately, and the leadership that he has shown during his brief time at FSU negates the loss of Suh as well.
Tampa Bay would probably have to choose between Wilson or Newman in the first round, as both are higher picks, but Marvin Wilson definitely makes the case that he can do way more for the Buccaneers in year one than Newman.
