And Tampa Bay chooses....

Wow, lots of trades in this draft. The Panthers came in from nowhere and surprised me there.

Tampa Bay had the opportunity to pick any WR they wanted, a position they definitely need with an aging Joey Galloway and an inconsistent Ike Hilliard, but they instead chose Aqib Talib.

While Aqib should be at least a decent CB in the NFL, and the Bucs have always been a defensive minded team, I feel like he was picked here more as a "best player available" because of how far he fell, rather then as a real team need for Tampa Bay. I guess they're thinking that perhaps Ronde will be following his brother into retirement soon.
