The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don't know what they're doing.
In this year's NFL draft, the Bucs wasted their second-round pick by selecting a kicker
, but hold on, it gets worse. They actually traded up, sending their third-round and fourth-round picks to the Kansas City Chiefs, to grab their kicker, Roberto Aguayo, in the second round.
We get it. Aguayo was a great college kicker. He's the most accurate kicker in NCAA history and never missed a field goal from inside the 40-yard line while playing at FSU. All of that is super impressive. But you must be high out of your mind to think he's worth of a second, third, and fourth-round pick, because apparently, he's not. Aguayo's been struggling mightily during his rookie preseason campaign, missing his very first attempt (an extra point
), going 2-4 in game two, and now struggling to make kicks in practice
We know he's a rookie, that this is preseason football, and his struggles are more mental than physical, but using a second, third, and fourth-round pick on a kicker is management's way of saying they feel their only a kicker away from becoming a Super Bowl winning team. News flash: they aren't (finished last season 6-10).
No kicker is worth a second, third, and fourth-round pick, but here are three kickers who were picked earlier than Aguayo during their respective Drafts:
