Bucs Begin Day Two on OL

For Tampa Bay, day two of the 2003 NFL Draft begins with the selection of two offensive linemen, T Lance Nimmo at the 130th slot and C Austin King at number 133


Rich McKay and the Bucs' personnel staff clearly found offensive line depth on their draft board Sunday afternoon

After securing a defensive end and a quarterback on the first day of the 2003 NFL Draft, the Bucs picked up a tackle to begin day two, selecting West Virginia's Lance Nimmo. Minutes later, Tampa Bay added C Austin King of Northwestern at pick number 133.

Nimmo (6-5, 303) played in 24 games over two seasons at West Virginia, earning all-conference first-team honors in 2002. Starting every game at left tackle last fall, Nimmo helped the Mountaineers rack up 418.5 yards per game of offense.

King (6-3, 299) earned honorable mention all-Big Ten accolades as a senior, starting at center for a Wildcat offense that averaged 389 yards per game. He was a team captain in 2002.

The 133rd pick was Tampa Bay's compensatory pick, as a result of a net loss of free agents during the 2002 offseason.

Please return shortly for more information on Nimmo and King, the newest Buccaneers.
