Bucs Take Sears In The 2nd Round

April 28, 2007

Tampa -- The Bucs continued the very focused reconstruction of their offensive line by using their high second-round pick on versatile and strong Tennessee guard Arron Sears.

A leader on the Volunteers’ offense, Sears is considered one of the finest offensive linemen ever to come through the program. Last fall, he was the first Tennessee player to win the Jacobs Blocking Award, given annually to the SEC’s best blocker, since 1990. He also earned All-America honors while leading the Volunteers with 71 knockdown blocks.

Sears started 37 games while at Tennessee, including 26 at left tackle, his position as a senior, six at right tackle, four at right guard and one at left guard. Tennessee coaches assessed him with only three sacks allowed over the course of 1,552 plays during his final two seasons.
