The Buccaneers could say they busted three times on Booker Reese.
First, they attempted to draft him in the first round with the 17th overall selection, but miscommunication on the draft floor had the Bucs pick guard Sean Farrell.
So convinced were the Bucs of Booker's talent that they traded their first-round pick in 1983 to the Chicago Bears for Chicago's second-round pick, 32nd overall.
Booker played two seasons in Tampa Bay, registering two career sacks. He would be traded in the middle of his second season to the LA Rams for a 12th-round pick. The Rams would have to send Reese to drug rehab.
Reese would never make it back into the NFL and was released in 2007 after serving time in the Okaloosa Correctional Facility for possession of cocaine.
The player the Bears drafted with the Bucs' 1983 No. 1 pick? Wide receiver Willie Gault.
