The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and 2013 BCS national champion, the team’s 2015 first-round draft pick. Winston becomes the second quarterback in team history to be drafted No. 1 overall (Vinny Testaverde – 1987).
So what does Winston bring to Tampa Bay? What can the Buccaneers expect from their new signal caller?
PewterReport.com takes a look at 10 Things Jameis Winston Brings To the Bucs in this photo gallery.

Swagger is No.1…I wish we had chosen Charlie Wardc years ago! but this makes up for Charlie’s being way ahead of his time!
That is my # 1 attribute too Funk. This team needs someone with it.
Swagger? What exactly is the swagger you look for in a QB? Does Peyton Manning have the swagger of Winston? It’s not swagger, it’s called confidence. And NO, you don’t have to be the loudest ass hole in the room to command it.
And nice example funk, Charlie Ward. What exactly did he do in the NFL? lol
The reviews are already starting to pour in…The Bucs are still the laughing stock and this decision just stamped them in the top worst teams class for even more years.
6) Titans win! Chip wins! Buccaneers … lose.
The Titans selected Marcus Mariota at No. 2. I love the pick. Tampa should’ve picked him instead of an untrustworthy quarterback like Jameis Winston, who has major decision-making issues on and off the field. But the Bucs went Winston, as most predicted, and Tennessee went on the clock …
As I mentioned in a column a few weeks back, one AFC general manager told me, “The Titans coaches are studying Mariota, hoping to fall in love because that’s what the bosses want.” Well, no matter how they all got here, it was the right move. Marcus Mariota is going to be a franchise quarterback.
And for all of the hubbub about Chip Kelly trying to get his man — and he did indeed inquire about trading up with the Bucs and Titans — the Eagles ended up staying at No. 20 and made a great pick with wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Kelly effectively replaces Jeremy Maclin while keeping star defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, who apparently was dangled in the trade-up offer.
The revamped Eagles are the best team in the NFC East. OK, I still don’t love the quarterback room, but make no mistake: Chip knew what he was doing in acquiring DeMarco Murray, Kiko Alonso and Byron Maxwell.
The Titans and Eagles are on the up and up.
Tampa Bay, on the other hand … Good luck, Lovie Smith — you’re going to need it.
Swagger? Is this a Culpepper Kurland ad?
