    Barring any terrible finds in the vetting of Jameis Winston I am hoping he is drafted by the Buccaneers with the first pick. Rarely does a team get the chance to take a QB with his talent and leadership. All indications are he’s a great teammate and works hard too. Sure it’s a risk, drafting a QB in the first round always is, but it’s one the Buccaneers must take and I believe they will. And don’t think the opinion of DB 55 doesn’t matter in Tampa. Given his background here and it FSU it does. So despite the much discussed troubles off the field, YES to going after the QB with the most talent and best fit to help this team right away. Jameis Winston.

      I agreement Garv. I hope that the Bucs brass dig in to whether Winston would be open to a mentorship, counseling, or other guidance to help him mature, because there is a chance that Winston could be the Bucs first franchise QB. The NFC South would be the first division in NFL history with every team possessing a franchise QB. Unlike Mr. Brady, I might add, who has inflated stats & wins because he has never had to contend with one franchise QB in his division in his 15 year career. e

    I’m leaning with Garv too. It could change if the Bucs decide to trade for a QB, then we will have new discussions. Right now Winston is the best selection for the Bucs.

    This is my least favorite feature put out by PR. I opened it expecting something new, but it is just a summary and so is disappointing to me.

    JAMEIS WINSTO SHOULD BE THE PICKS AFTER THE FIRST PICK I HOPE TAME WILL TRADR QB MIKE GLENNON AND RB MARTIN. THOSE DRAFT PICKS WILL BE USED VERY WELL. I’D SEE MULT RETURNS ON THESE PICKS. ITS NOT WHAT THEY DO IN THE 1ST OR 2ND ROUND PICKS IS AFTER THOSE FIRST TWO PICKS GO BUCS.
