Will Tampa Bay Buccaneers jump back into the first round?

So its draft night, and your wearing your Bucs Darrelle Revis jerseys (Cadillac Williams perhaps? or Mark Barron?) and watching the other teams take their shots into the first round forray into building a winning team.

But with the recent history, it would not be beyond the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to jump back into the first round, theyve done it twice now in the last two years.

They used a second first round pick getting fellow defensive end position in Da’ Quan Bowers after drafting Adrian Clayborn. Last year, the Bucs took Mark Barron, then manuvered back into the first round to take running back Doug Martin. 

So will the Bucs do it again? History says yes, and the Bucs do have some ammunition to do it with…

Lagerrette Blount comes to mind. The Bucs could sell him easilly as a future teams feature back. All you need do is watch his TD run against the Packers in 2011. The Bucs also have two fourth round picks, the later coming from the Patriots. Whats a 4th round pick worth? See Luke Stocker and yes, Mike Williams. No.19 was a 4th round pick. 

So stay tuned, dont just forgo the draft because Revis is on the team, because the Bucs could be adding him some help in the secondary.
