Hargreaves, Lawson not in Bucs’ plans at No. 9

Many have been penciling Florida’s cornerback Vernon Hargreaves as a sure-fire bet he’ll be drafted by the Bucs at No. 9. Some are also riding the train for Clemson’s defensive end Shaq Lawson. But since January, TBC has been consistently saying a cornerback is unlikely and the defensive end to watch for is Oklahoma State’s Emmanuel Ogbah instead.

While things can undoubtedly change, the above claims appear to be echoed throughout other outlets. One of those include PewterReport.com where Scott Reynolds says neither Hargreaves or Lawson are viewed by the Buccaneers as being worthy of a Top 10 selection.

So why didn’t I mention Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves, who could be available with the ninth overall pick, or Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson? From what I understand, neither one is worth a top 10 pick in Tampa Bay’s eyes – unless something has recently changed in the war room. The Bucs will do their due diligence and bring in Hargreaves for a pre-draft visit because he’s a local product as a Tampa native, but I get the feeling the team likes [Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple] better [after trading down].

Tampa Bay has needs in many places. Even selecting Apple after trading down seems unlikely with the apparent logjam at cornerback.

All indications appear to still be the team leaning towards defensive line help. But with a potential trade and other factors, things can be different from here to April 28.

TheBayCave Ogbah's measurables aren't great his 40 times is but not much else. Stiff athlete with bad tape.

TheBayCave I like Ogbah, his measurables are great. The things you can measure are bad. Poor technique.
