NFL Draft expert Matt Miller joined Booger and Rich to talk about the Bucs strategy and whether or not they will look to take a QB to push Mike Glennon.
Miller said that despite experts having the Bucs take Khalil Mack, he doesn’t think he will fit in Tampa Bay. Mack is a dominant player but Miller said he’s a 3-4 linebacker that will be a guy without a home in Lovie Smith’s 4-3 Tampa 2 defensive scheme.
With such a deep draft, Miller said the Bucs are in a great spot picking at #7. There Miller said they can get a talent like tackle Greg Robinson or a skilled wide receiver like Sammy Watkins.
Johnny Manziel is one of the more intriguing players to come out of college in recent years but Miller says that he could get a GM fired, either for taking him or passing on him. Miller said that Manziel will be like buying a lottery ticket: boom or bust.
Last season Miller said that he would hitch his wagon to Mike Glennon as the Bucs starting quarterback of the future. After nearly a full season of starts, Miller said that he still likes Glennon. He would however still draft a quarterback if he was the Bucs but would wait until the later rounds and try to scoop up a guy like Aaron Murray.
In free agency, Michael Vick is expected to be a player that the Bucs look at to bring into camp to push Glennon. Miller said that he thinks at this point in his career, Vick is just a name. He doesn’t think Vick is a good quarterback anymore and would have to reinvent himself if he wants to be a viable starter in the NFL again.
Finally, Miller said that Michael Sam was a 4th round pick in his eyes before coming out as gay and is still a 4th round pick after his announcement. He believes he needs some coaching but has a chance to not only get drafted but development into a decent player.
