10:34 PM ET 01.31 | The Sedins and Staals pump out hockey stars like no other family, and while the Harbaughs are currently the darling siblings of the NFL at the moment, there's another trio of brothers that are taking care of business in the NFL. One of them might be destined for Tampa. Marcus and Isaiah Trufant are both considered to be high-ranking cornerbacks in the NFL right now, and their little brother Desmond is set to join them. The University of Washington standout is one of the best cornerbacks in the draft which means Bucs fans can start talking about a name other than Dee Milliner. While getting Milliner -- who is without a doubt the best cornerback prospect in the 2013 draft class -- would be a dream for the Bucs, there is a very real possibility that he won't be available at No. 13 when the Bucs are put on the clock. We discussed a scenario where the Bucs trade down earlier today, but they may not have to trade down to get who they want.

I find it amazing that a subsidiary of Sports Illustrated, a company which puts so much focus on their illustrations, would consistently run into so many issues posting pictures. Shouldn't you guys have a whole department dedicated to photography/illustrations? (Many on-line magazines do)

Some days you guys can't figure out how to post pictures. Other days when you do post them and they look warped (such as today).

I'm not sure if it's incompetence, a lack of pride, or just plain utter neglect. But it's pathetic.

Not to mention...

Don't you have a way to test your webpages before they go live? Does no one at your company care that you consistently roll out unfinished, poorly edited products to the public? Shouldn't there be some level of quality control? Or are your bosses just so completely detached from what the web content guys do that they never even see your work?

And what about Jesse Beals, the AP Photographer credited with taking that picture. Doesn't he care that you're completely butchering his work?

The Bucs are making a smart move by seeking players like Milliner and Trufant, either one would help them out for a long time, Milliner has the higher ranking, but Trufant is a guy with something to prove!

Statistically, the Bucs had the worst pass defense in the league last year.
