Tampa Bay Bucs’ general manager Jason Licht is a hard man to pin down.
Just take the NFL draft, where — in three rounds — he has traded down, stayed pat and traded up to bring in an interesting amount of talent. The Bucs added talented Noah Spence — and his troubled past — and then traded back into the second round to pick up FSU place-kicker Roberto Aguayo.
“We got the best pass rusher in the draft and the best kicker,” said coach Dirk Koetter, who had referred to Vernon Hargreaves as the best cover corner. Granted, there will be those who argue with Hargreaves and Spence, but it’s undeniable that the Bucs are thrilled with their draft.
The second round is high to draft a place-kicker, but coach Dirk Koetter has often talked about the need to add more points.
“I was just waiting it out, and the call came in,” Aguayo said. “I saw it was a Tampa number. It’s surreal. It’s so exciting.”
The draft is sure to please Bucs’ quarterback Jameis Winston, who played against Hargreaves at Florida, got to know Spence on the recruiting trail and then played with Aguayo at FSU.
