Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker





It's been eight years, but finally the Bucs have gone with a defensive player in the first round.

Former Clemson defensive end Gaines Adams becomes the first defensive player chosen in the first round by Tampa Bay since Booger McFarland in 1999.

But here's the catch: he might not stay. We'll see if anything comes of the talks between Detroit and others regarding Calvin Johnson. The Bucs covet him and the Lions have had their eyes on Adams for some time. But that doesn't guarantee anything.

Stay tuned.
