The Rookie sounds like an even better Cuban and I'm all for that

Vote rookie!!!!

The Rookie

Gotta give the rookie a try out.

The veteran substitute chicken tenders for the turkey though 😶😶

I am a veteran but the rookie looks very good.

Rookie!

Rookie... Never a fan of the veteran

Rookie

Rookie. Can you ship one to Minnesota for me?

Rookie all the way

Both look very good but the Veteran has me intrigued with the spicy turkey and what ever peach mango salsa is. Hold the lettuce though.

I'm going rookie cause Tampa is the capital for Cuban sandwiches

Seeing this post after moving to a land far away from Publix is painful. I feel personally attacked.

Love the Veteran! Taste awesome!!!

Veteran. I thought it sounded weird until I tried it. It’s awesome!

Rookie would be my choice because I'm not crazy for guacamole or peach mango salsa.

Sounds great but will skip the cheese

Let's go Rookie!

Time to start the rook

Put in the rookie!

Stick With The Veteran!

Both! 😂 Cure the hunger

put in the rookie!

Rookie!

Trade back seems best option to get more picks in 2nd 3rd round if we can't get Nelson or Barkley at 7. Listening in Scotland 🇬🇧🏈🇺🇸

I think that it's going to come down to either D James or M. Fitzpatrick for the 1st pick. Fitzpatrick has a better track record for being a Playmaker

READ ME- Should the Bucs go after CJ Anderson and get a 3rd down back in the 4th round(trade up in the 3rd) then address the secondary in the first and second round

What is the strategy making Winston more of efficient quarterback. Who will be starting at runningback . Can we resolve our kicking problem this year?

Would love Nelson to fall to us then pick up a RB early 2nd then rest Def do u think that could be possible.

Do we get the 5th year at a cheaper price since we havent seen winston play his 4th season...

Should the bucs take Best Player Available at 7 and trade up back into 1st for Guice assuming Barley is gone at 7?

Do you think this is Hargreaves last year to make an impact to stay on the team?

Do you think the Bucs might take a look at WR Auden Tate from FSU/Wharton High in around round 4 or 5??

Draft Nelson, Chubb or Barkley.. if all gone trade back a few spots for any of the 3 DBs (Ward,fitz or James). Simple

Chance Hernandez from Utep drops down to the Bucs second pick?

Draft Party at RJS is an excellent experience and fun for whole family Lets go Bucs 2018

If nelson Barkley chubb is gone. Who do u think is better for our need. Ward James or minkah

Are we looking at NC State RB Nyheim Hynes?

How about a cousin package if it’s possible. Both Chubbs, would that be possible?

What offers were given for our first round pick?

Do we have a chance to win a play off game

There aren"t any concerns about keeping Winston around?

So the we are taking a kicker round one right? 😂

Carl Lawson best kicker in NCAA history... #warrrrr eagle

How many of the Bucs' 30 mtgs have they used up so far?

Have you guys put any thought into Shquiem Griffin?

So will you both be at the draft in Dallas?

Derwin. He is larger and very athletic.

I live in Texas so I’ll be in Dallas supporting my Bucs
