With the third overall pick the Bucs grab DT Gerald McCoy

DT Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma

Here’s the Walter Football report on McCoy:

I have word from a very reliable source (the same one that informed me of Tampa loving Josh Freeman last year) that if both Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy are available, the Buccaneers are taking Suh. McCoy is the safer pick, but Tampa’s front office is smitten with Suh.

However, that’s not the case here. Suh is off the board, so McCoy is the no-brainer selection. The Oklahoma product fills Tampa Bay’s greatest need and is arguably the top player on the board. Furthermore, McCoy is a great fit for Tampa’s defense and doesn’t have the same knee-related risks that Suh possesses.
