Bucs left Mel Kiper in shock
April 28, 2019
Iconic hairpin guru Mel Kiper of BSPN can not quite believe what the Buccaneers did in Round 2 of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Kiper placed Tampa Bay first on his main scratch list for Rounds 2 and 3 yesterday.
At number 39 overall, the Bucs selected cornerback Sean Bunting out of central Michigan.
Kiper was stunned.
These were the best spots available when Tampa Bay overtook Bunting, who is ranked No. 87 on my board: Greedy Williams, Justin Layne, Lonnie Johnson Jr., Julian Love, Joejuan Williams, David Long, Trayvon Mullen and Amani Oruwariye.
If I had eight Corners with higher scores than Bunting that were still on the board. Tampa Bay absolutely needed a man corner, but I would have gone with Greedy Williams.
Keep calm, fans of the Bucs. Keep calm.
Bunting can be a great player, but his selection will have more scrutiny than most selections.
