(AUDIO) Charles Davis: Bucs Want a Top QB in Draft

From the NFL Network, Charles Davis joined us to talk about the combine and what he saw there. Charles agreed with Justin that this year, more than any other year, has the potential to be a very deep draft.

One of the big stories that we had going in was the performance of Jadeveon Clowney. Charles said that people downplaying his 40 time and his performance at the combine because we knew that he was going to be a guy who put down a fast time.  Clowney came into the combine with question marks, and when he decided to take part into only a part of the drills, that is where some of the criticism came from.

For the Bucs heading into the draft, Charles said that if one of them make it to 7, that the Bucs should seriously consider taking the QB that is left between Manziel, Bridgewater, or Bortles.

“I don’t see how they could turn that down,” Davis responded when asked if the Bucs will take one of the top three quarterbacks, if available, with the 7th selection. “If one of those quarterbacks is there (at 7), I’d be shocked if the Bucs didn’t jump on one of those guys. They’d love one of those quarterbacks. I think they’d be in shock if one of them were available with the 7th pick.”

At the thought of moving up, Davis explained the option with teams ahead of the Bucs to move up and get a guy that they have fallen in love with.

Earlier in the week, there was a lot of discussion about the future of Darrelle Revis and if the Bucs should move on. Davis says that it is always dicey to move an elite corner, but if you can get a great package for him, it is something you really need to consider.  The key is finding out if the deal is worth it for the Bucs, and if the package is too big to ignore, the Bucs have to have discussions about it.
