That's because Tampa Bay just traded up to draft a kicker. A kicker! In fairness it's not just any kicker -- it's Roberto Aguayo of Florida State, one of the most accurate kickers to come out of college in a long time.
But still, as you might guess, CBS Sports Pete Prisco isn't a fan.
Aguayo. Grade: F. Why? Why? He’s a kicker. A kicker. Say it again: A kicker.— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) April 30, 2016
Auguyo spent three years with the Seminoles and never missed an extra point, going 198 for 198. He also went 69-for-78 (88.5 percent) on field goals.
And, importantly, has never missed from inside 40 yards. He's a really good kicker. You could also argue a great kicker is more important than ever to have with the new kickoff and extra point rules.
Still it wasn't exactly cheap to move up and get him, costing the Bucs a third-round pick and fourth-round pick this year for No. 59 overall.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded pick No. 74 (Round 3) and pick No. 106 (Round 4) to Kansas City in exchange for Pick No. 59— Buccaneers PR (@BuccaneersPR) April 30, 2016
The Bucs actually won the trade in terms of the Jimmy Johnson Trade chart (No. 59 is worth 310 points, while the other two picks are worth 302 points). They lost on the Football Perspective Trade Value Chart by 3.5 points however.
It's a pretty rare occurrence for a kicker to be drafted this early, in case you weren't aware.
The last guy to go in the second round or higher was Mike Nugent (47th overall) in 2005. Before him was Sebastian Janikowski in the first round (17th overall) in 2000. Jason Hanson was taken with the 56th overall selection in 1992.
Those are the only three since 1990, but five other guys (Chip Lohmiller, John Lee, Steve Little, Chris Bahr and Chester Marcol) were drafted in the second round or earlier since the merger.
The Bucs will probably catch plenty of flak for this move and Jason Licht is going to hear lots of "so you're the guy who takes a kicker early in fantasy football" jokes. But, look, let's be honest. Is it a guarantee that someone like Christian Hackenberg is better than Auguyo when all is said and done?
