Flash Analysis

It wasn't a secret that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were going to select University of Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy with their first-round pick.

As several veteran NFL player personnel evaluators told recently, McCoy is the kind of one-gap penetrator that will excel in their defensive scheme.

McCoy should start this season and will instantly upgrade their defensive line.
