Tampa Bay wrapped up its 2019 NFL Draft class with another defensive addition. Here Womens Chris Godwin Jersey , we have three things you should know about new Bucs defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr."The Buccaneers finished up the 2019 NFL Draft by going back to the defensive side of the ball. With the 215th overall pick, Tampa Bay selected defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. out of Missouri.The addition of Beckner probably doesn’t change Gerald McCoy’s fate — whatever that may be — but it should at least give the Bucs some potential for depth inside of their defensive line. The 6-foot-4, 296-pounder became Tampa Bay’s sixth defensive draft pick in the last three days, which continues what looks to be a defensive overhaul under new coordinator Todd Bowles. Being a seventh-rounder never guarantees anything, but if Beckner can impress in camp, he could be a depth guy for Bowles and his staff.Beckner isn’t the well-known prospect he once was, but the front office saw something in him that warranted a draft pick. Here, we have three things you need to know about new Bucs defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr.Beckner’s road to the NFL has been a bumpy oneAfter a strong career at East St. Louis High School, Beckner was at the top of the proverbial mountain. According to Rivals, he was the 36th-best recruit in the country. ESPN had him as high as second in 2015. According to an April 23 article from Yahoo Sports, he was considered a better prospect than many well-known guys today:Those guys are pretty highly-regarded these days. So, what happened to Beckner? Well, his career at Missouri didn’t get off to a great start. He earned Freshman All-American honors in 2015, picking up 27 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. However, his season came to an early end after he tore his ACL and MCL in November. He worked his way back slowly and was more of a reserve in 2016, but that season also ended early due to him tearing his other ACL. He eventually had a breakout 2017 season Chris Godwin Jersey White , with 38 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and seven sacks. He returned to the Tigers for his senior year and was once again pretty solid, but his injury history meant his draft stock was pretty low.Despite the fall from being a top-rated recruit, Beckner will get a chance to prove that he still has production in him when he heads to camp with the Bucs.Despite his size and success, Beckner is pretty low-keyA January article from The Kansas City Star talked about Beckner’s arrival and early days with Missouri, and it’s somewhat surprising to learn that a 6-foot-4 Division I defensive tackle — who was also one of the top recruits at his school — was looking to avoid attention. Here’s an excerpt from the article:But the summer of 2015, Missouri volleyball player Alyssa Munlyn noticed Beckner’s absence as she grew close with fellow Tigers freshmen athletes. He never relaxed with her group of friends. She didn’t know anything about him.In this day and age, especially with social media dominating everything, a lot of top recruits and NFL prospects love to be flashy. There’s a certain swagger that a lot of guys like to carry. So, when someone likes to keep a lower profile and avoid attention, it’s pretty out of the norm. The story goes on to say that Beckner grew into his role with the Tigers, but that he “still doesn’t care much for attention.” Tampa is probably a big enough city for Beckner to blend in and not get bothered too much, right? Beckner is the second Missouri product on the Bucs’ current roster and just the third player the franchise has drafted from the schoolWhen Beckner makes his way to Tampa, he will have one fellow Missouri Tiger waiting for him in the locker room. That would be quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who himself is new to the Bucs this season. Gabbert played at Missouri from 2008-2010, throwing for 6,822 yards and 40 touchdowns on top of a 60.9 percent completion rate. The 2019 season will be his ninth year in the league.Beckner is also just the third Missouri player to ever be drafted by Tampa Bay. The most recent was guard Carl Bax (200th overall in 1989) Donovan Smith Jersey , and before that, it was Buccaneer legend James Wilder (34th overall in 1981). That also makes Beckner the first defensive player from Missouri ever drafted by the Bucs. He is the fourth 2019 Bucs draftee from the SEC and the 17th former SEC player on the team’s current roster (this doesn’t include Gabbert, who played in the Big 12 when he was at Missouri). You can find Terry Beckner Jr. on Twitter at @TBckner. Take some time to congratulate him and welcome him to Tampa Bay.The New Helmet Rule: A Perfect Clusterf*** Of Chaos I mean, really?When NFL owners approved the new helmet rule back in May, there’s no doubt in my mind it was after a few bourbons that would’ve cost me a paycheck to afford. How in the hell did they think this was a good idea?Player safety is important. The players don’t care if they get hurt or develop long-term health issues, so it’s important - and almost imperative - to protect them from themselves. I get that. But damn, this is a bit ridiculous, right?The criticism across the league has been sharp and widespread. If it didn’t hurt so bad it would almost be funny. Almost.ESPN’s Louis Riddick discussed the confusion concerning the new rule for the first two minutes of this video. It’s comforting to see intelligent analysts such as Riddick speaking some sense. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan took a pretty direct approach himself. We’ve been through rule change experiments during the preseason before, that is nothing new. But the degree of absurdity that has been witnessed thus far has caused legitimate concern and rightfully so. The question is: how did no one see this coming? It’s impossible to ban the helmet from football. As the rule currently states, using any part of the helmet during a hit— whether incidental or not — results in a 15-yard penalty. Every single collision of is a product of momentum and to ask a player to adjust like that - to slow down - is not only extremely difficult, but dangerous. Common sense should prevail in this situation. When you hit someone with your shoulder, your head naturally follows in that direction. It’s not that hard to understand.There are more problems than player safety and one of those is the fact that we don’t really know what the refs are out there calling right now. One call looks different than another, yet all of the results are the same. Penalties are subjective enough anyway, especially where there is a ton of gray area and right now there’s more gray than the Country Kitchen Buffet.“I think there’s definitely truth to it – it’s not clear,” Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said in reference to how ambiguity of the new rule. “The players in general – it’s not crystal clear. We’ve watched the videos. The league has sent videos the last two weeks dealing exclusively with the use of the helmet. But it’s still football and when they send videos out and they’re showing them in slow motion, that’s different than playing football. So I think there’s just going to be an adjustment period. This is a significant change. We’ll just have to see how it goes.”Coupling a major shift in procedure with indirect instruction is bound for disaster no matter how good one’s intentions may be.And let’s go ahead and slide down the slippery slope of game-changing calls, unfair and/or unnecessary ejections Jameis Winston Jersey , and whatever else can change the course of a game due to inconsistent calls.On a quick side note — if you thought this helmet rule was scary enough, what about the call last weekend on Vikings’ linebacker Antwione Williams? The new rule officially states that, “a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw him down or land on top of him with all or most of the defender’s weight.”I swear to all of the holy figures in this universe, if this call makes it into the regular season, I will be using the warranty on TV. The wall mount just “broke” and the TV somehow has a fist-sized hole in it.Um, sure. Go ahead and ask a 6-foot-3, 247-pound linebacker like Williams to shift more than 50% of his body weight in mid-air while falling to the ground and trying to take a 225-pound (at minimum) quarterback down with him.That’s not much to ask at all, right?So where does the NFL go from here? Fortunately for everyone there will be a meeting on Wednesday of this week and the word is that there will be plea after plea to help change - or at the least, adjust the rule. It’s doubtful that the league will just forego the whole thing, but any type of change would almost be welcomed at this point.Could they implement a review procedure for questionable calls? Why not limit the rule to just the crown of the helmet? Why not get rid of incidental contact? This video by Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn does a good job showing the intent of ball carriers and what should be called - therefore making it much easier to discern between incidental and intentional contact. Your browser does not support HTML5 video.According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, this “significant change” is in year one of a three-year adjustment period in which the league will update the rules as time marches on, which just adds to the chaos. What may be deemed illegal this year, could be the opposite 2019.Despite the negativity it’s important to remember that this is the first time that anything like this rule has been attempted. This is not the norm for a game that has been around for over a hundred years. The frenzy - to an extent - is to be expected.But the hope is that something productive - and some sort of change - comes out of Wednesday’s meeting. In a perfect world, the NFL would just come out and say “gotcha!”. But you know what they say about wishing in one hand and performing another duty in the other.My money is on the other hand.
