Aaron Donald Could Be In Play for Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Pitt DT Aaron Donald looks like he could find his way in the top 10 in the NFL Draft. Bill Polian has him landing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Bucs Beat Writer Tom Kersniqi mentioned the possibility a couple of weeks ago.

Donald saw his stock rise a ton during the Senior Bowl and it has continued to grow during the offseason. He is an undersized defensive tackle that knows how to make plays on the football field. His size has not slowed him down in the college game and he doesn’t expect it to slow him down at the next level.

Will Lovie Smith want to bring in more talent on defense for his first draft with the Bucs? Donlad is a playmaker and nobody should be surprised to see his rise in the draft. He finds his way to the football and disrupts the action.

Donald would be an instant force with the Bucs defense. He would get in the middle of the defense and disrupt the passing game with his quickness off of the ball. He will be someone to watch early in the draft when the Bucs are on the clock.
