The draft may lack a clear number one quarterback, it is absolutely filled with very talented quarterbacks who aren't good enough to become starters immediately, but may develop into starters in the long run. Behind Geno Smith and Matt Barkley, players like NC State's Mike Glennon, Florida State's E.J. Manuel, Syracuse's Ryan Nassib and Tennessee's Tyler Bray (if he declares) are raw, unpolished quarterbacks with many, many flaws. But they're also talented, and could develop into quality starters in the long run. In the mean time, the Bucs can continue to monitor Freeman's

 Wasn't Freeman a raw, unpolished QB coming out of Kansas State? I think I'd rather take the chance on Freeman for another year and look at the 2014 class of QB's. McCarron, Murray, Thomas, Pachall (remains to be seen if he can overcome his DWI).. and I think Bray stays another year. All of them I think would be better than anyone in the 2013 draft. Though there might be some prospects out there that aren't well known at this point.

Agree.  I think they continue with the Freeman experiment one more season.  Then if it doesn't pan out, they draft or sign someone after the 2013 season.   I thought they would extend him after this season, but now I think that idea is out the window.  See what he looks like in 2013, and take it from there.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Bridgewater will be the one to watch for next year. Eww to Thomas, McCarron seems like a back-up to me.

Looks like Bray will enter the draft. Worth a look in middle rounds imo if he is still there as long as we address CB and DL early and through free agency.

I'm down for picking Bray in the mid rounds.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

Does anyone who knows anything about Bray off the field think he's a Schiano Man?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

lol @ bray and schiano. gasoline and fire. casey pachall is a no go. nobody is going to draft him with his history of drug problems

teddy bridgewater wont be an early rounder, i dont care what anyone says. too small and skinny. 1 good hit and hes toast.

logan thomas was the most overrated player ive ever seen and fell comepletely flat on his face this year. hes a crappier version of freeman

I agree with you on most but on the fence on Bray. I feel like his problems were more maturity issues and wonder if a stern leader like Schiano wouldn't be a good mix.

The scary thing is the guys I listed are considered the top prospects for 2014 and I'd consider most of them before anyone coming out in 2013. There's always a few guys who rise up from relative obscurity around the time of the combine so we shall see but at the moment I'd rather stick with the devil I know than take a chance on another one.

Bray is like Flacco; big physical talent with shoty accuracy. If we take a QB i want it to be a QB with accuracy and good decision making
