Dalvin Cook, Taco Charlton visit Bucs

The Buccaneers continued looking at running back prospects on Wednesday when running back Dalvin Cook came to the team’s facility for a visit.

According to multiple reports, Cook joined a list of running backs to visit the Bucs that includes Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon and Texas’ D’Onta Freeman. The Florida State back has drawn plenty of interest around the league as well, including visits with the Eagles, Browns and Bengals over the course of the pre-draft process.

The Buccaneers’ search for a back is playing out against a backdrop of uncertainty about Doug Martin’s future with the team. His suspension at the end of last season voided the remaining guaranteed money on the contract he signed after a strong 2015 season and before averaging 2.9 yards per carry in a disappointing 2016 campaign.

Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the team also had Michigan pass rusher Taco Charlton in for a visit. They’ve also met with Tennessee’s Derek Barnett recently and bolstering the pass rush could be seen as a bigger first-round priority given the depth of the running back class this year.

    Taco Charlton = best name in the draft

    Sure, Taco has a few different levels to what he brings to the table, but some critics say he’s a little sloppy and falls apart under pressure.
    I understand his brother Burrito has a little more substance and keeps things wrapped up a little more tightly.

    I’ll show myself out now.

    the Bucs are finally fun to watch again with the youth of real talent we have on our team. I expect some NFC south titles to be won and contention for the NFC title as well

    Two of my favorite prospects in this draft.

    I can’t wait to see the endorsement deals Taco gets.

    Taco says “buy a different footlong each day of the week”.

    “Hi, I’m Taco, and I just supersized…”.

    “Try a 10 piece bucket, you won’t regret it”
