The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded away their first round draft pick to acquire Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets. But that doesn’t mean the Buccaneers will miss all the festivities on Thursday night at Radio City Music Hall.
“You get a little antsy, but we’ve already gone through scenarios,” general manager Mark Dominik said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “Who are the guys you’d consider going to get depending on how far they drop? Here’s what it takes. We’ve gone through a lot of [debates] that way. . . . We walk into this draft with seven picks still. . . I think it allows you the ammunition to be able to move around and be fluid if you want to.”
This isn’t the first time Tampa Bay has done something like this. Last year the Buccaneers packaged their second (36th overall) round pick with a fourth round to trade back into the first round. They took Doug Martin with that pick and he has been worth the move.
This year the Buccaneers second round pick is the the 43rd overall. If they see a player they like slipping into the 20′s or early 30′s they could move up to get him.
