Countdown to the 2015 NFL draft
We are now less than a month away from the 2015 draft in which of course the Bucs will be selecting first.  So as the countdown to being on the clock continues, we will look at some of the past 39 Buccaneers drafts, both good and bad. 1979 and 1980 - The Bucs traded away their top pick in 1979 for a washed-up Wally Chambers who spent two seasons with the team.  The rest of that draft did not bring a lot outside of 12th rounder David Logan who became the starting nose tackle for the next seven years.  1980 was magnificent though as Kevin House and Gerald Carter arrived in the same draft, as did Scot Brantley and Andy Hawkins.  Ray Snell and Jim Leonard also arrived to boost the offensive line and the two following playoff seasons were the result of this excellent draft.

K Bill Capece  1981-83  (56) S Odie Harris  1988-90  (49) S Markus Paul  1993  (49) DT Mark Wheeler  1992-95  (45) Bill Capece was the youthful kicker who booted the Bucs into the 1982 post- season tournament but then totally lost his accuracy and cost the 83 team a few games before being benched, or as John McKay put it, “Capece is Kaput”.
I am very pleased to announce a hook-up between Pewter Report and BUCPOWER.COM that will see regular history features appearing on their site that come from here.  The first of these is for Ricky Bell, the late great former running back of the Bucs and also includes the video highlight reel I put together for his family in Seattle.  Enjoy the new features Buc fans!
