After trading down from the seventh pick to #12, the Buccaneers selected Vita Vea, a 6-4, 347-pound defensive tackle from Washington with enormous strength and the nimble feet of a much smaller man. Vea gives the Buccaneers a potentially dominant interior-line rotation, mixing in with six-time Pro Bowler Gerald McCoy and prized free agency acquisition Beau Allen.
Even better, the process that led to Vea's selection gave the Buccaneers an opportunity to address several other positions with high picks. Originally scheduled to pick seventh overall, the Buccaneers traded with the Buffalo Bills, moving down to #12 and acquiring picks [url=http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/tomas-hyka-c-1_13.html]Tomas Hyka Jersey Womens
#53 and 56 http://www.authentictimberwolvessale.com/tyus-jones-jersey-c-1_5.html in the second round. Tampa Bay also included its seventh-round compensatory pick, #255, in the deal.

Vea is the latest addition to the Bucs' revamped defensive line, joining Allen, free agent signees Vinny Curry Shaquille O'Neal Jersey Womens and Mitch Unrein and trade acquisition Jason Pierre-Paul. Add in 2016 second-round pick Noah Spence, who http://www.cheappenguinssale.com/sidney-crosby-jersey-c-1_11.html lost much of last year to a shoulder injury but had 5.5 sacks as a rookie, William Gholston and Will Clarke and the Bucs could have a front-line rotation that runs eight or nine players deep. That's a formula that worked quite well last year for the Philadelphia Eagles, from whom the Buccaneers nabbed Allen and Curry.

Specifically the middle of the Bucs' defense becomes much more stout with Vea in the mix. Vea's strength was on display at the NFL Scouting Combine when he managed 41 reps in the bench press drill; only Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips, with 42, had more. His size and power would be a fit in a traditional nose-tackle role and http://www.abicci.com/tim-hardaway-jersey-c-1_20.html would help a Buccaneers' Wilt Chamberlain Youth Jersey run defense that allowed 117.5 yards per game and 4.3 yards per carry in 2017.
