NFL Rumors: Tampa Bay Buccaneers may draft LSU star Jeremy Hill


The Buccaneers have lame new helmets but they may be getting a strong and very awesome draft class this year. With new management in charge of everything, the Bucs are starting to hash out adrift strategy and many fans are starting to wonder what they may end up doing.

On player that the Bucs may target is LSU Tigers running back Jeremy Hill who is starting to garner a lot of attention and praise from scouts and analysts alike. Pete Yasinskas form ESPN.com notes that while no one knows what the Bucs are doing, and the team has three running backs already, they may be open to drafting Hill if he’s there.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are pretty well set at running back with starter Doug Martin and backups Mike James and Bobby Rainey. But, if Hill is the best player on their board at any given time, anything is possible.

Anything is possible at the draft, but the Buccaneers taking Hill is far-fetched. Lovie Smith did grab Matt Forte in Chicago to be a lead back, but the Bucs already have Doug Martin and a compliment of backs behind him, meaning the Bucs picks can be devoted to filling defensive holes.

    Worst article ever. Lame helmets? They’re awesome. And this is stupid, everyone is probably open to taking him. Just a waste of an article

  • Joe

    The only thing lame is that gay looking douche is wrote this stupid article

  • Tom Weissmann

    Pat is at a training center in Florida where Hill is. He didn’t say they were going to draft him. In the article, he was talking about how good he looks and his college days. Great reporting by Josh Hill.

    Haha Lame helmets huh? I think the helmets are Boss, and no other team has a silver guard so they are unique. But then again the lame statement is as Lame as the Idea of the Bucs picking ANOTHER. Running back when they need OL, DL, WR, TE, and QB.
    But hay, maybe a RB!! Lol

    AND J. Hill just got arrested and the Bucs tend to stay clear of Problem players. They have enough to deal with now with Williams. But HAY maybe a RB!!!’
