Tampa Bay's pick coming up soon.

So who are the Bucs looking at? I think the Bucs biggest needs are at either DT or WR.

Looking at what's left, and the fact that no WRs have been drafted yet, I think TB should be looking especially at the Wide Receiver position. Detroit shouldn't pick a WR, Houston will probably go with Jeff Otah, leaving Philly and TB taking the top two WRs out of these guys:

Limas Sweed, Texas
DeSean Jackson, California
Devin Thomas, Mich State
Malcolm Kelly, Oklahoma

My gut feeling is that Philly will go with the bigger guy (Sweed 6'4" 215) and Tampa Bay would probably love to have a speedy guy like DeSean Jackson (4.34 40 yd). However, Jackson's size (5'9" 169) may be just a little too small for Gruden's taste, so he might go for Devin Thomas instead. Thomas is 6'2" 216 and ran a 4.4 40 yd dash, so he's kind of the happy medium between Sweed and Thomas.

Edit: disregard the Houston comment, they just traded with Baltimore so the Ravens can get Flacco.
