Who should the Bucs take with their fifth pick in the draft?
Some quick housecleaning: As evidenced by the beatdown I received last week, all things Tampa apparently trump common sense.
But, alas, I will not take the road my opponent chose, picking the local team, siding with the local players, feasting on any Tampa Bay area connection in order to curry favor with you, the astute, brainy, discerning, enlightened, knowledgeable, perceptive, sharp, smart, well-informed voters.
It's not my style. I'd like to think I'm bigger than that. Playing up to the home crowd has its advantages, as my opponent can affirm, but the preference is to win these debates with clear, cognitive arguments, not cheerleading.
That said, considering the draft is deep with running backs, void of a surefire offensive lineman, and absent any defensive studs, it's obvious the Bucs should draft USC wide receiver Mike Williams with the No. 5 pick, if they keep it.
I have no idea where he played his high school ball, but trust me, the kid is good.
