Bucs take FSU linebacker Watson in seventh



For the second time in three drafts, the Bucs have taken an FSU linebacker, selecting Dekoda Watson from the Seminoles with the second of their five seventh-round picks.

Watson, 6-foot-1 and 240 pounds, led the Seminoles in tackles for loss (13) and sacks (6.5) last season, and will be reunited with former teammate Geno Hayes in Tampa Bay. The Bucs can only hope he can have the same success as Hayes, who started 13 games last season and finished with 98 tackles.
