Mb Nfl Double Your First Deposit Pats Vs Bucs Pewter 728x90 Jpg

The Bucs have selected Florida quarterback Kyle Trask with the 64th overall pick in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Tampa bay entered this year’s in a unique position. After becoming the first team in the NFL’s salary cap era to bring all 22 of their Super Bowl-winning starters back for the following season, the Bucs had no glaring needs to fill and used their first-round pick to bolster depth at defensive line with Washington edge Joe Tryon. In the second round Tampa Bay added a young quarterback in Trask.

Pewter Report’s Scott Reynolds wrote about Trask in one of his Fab. 5 columns earlier this month. Read some of SR’s evaluation below.

Some NFL Draft analysts have Trask as the No. 6 QB in this year’s draft class. Other analysts have Trask No. 7 behind Stanford’s Davis Mills. I think Trask is a better fit for the Bucs because he’s more accomplished and has a bigger, more durable frame. The 6-foot-5, 236-pound Trask is a classic pocket passer. Some within the Bucs organization have said he resembles a younger, slightly more athletic Brad Johnson.

Trask came in fourth in the Heisman Trophy race after passing for 4,283 yards with an FBS-high 43 touchdowns with just eight interceptions last year as a senior. After winning the job from Feleipe Franks in 2019, Trask threw for nearly 3,000 yards with 25 TDs and seven INTs in his first real year in Dan Mullins’ offense.

TRASK’S FLORIDA CAREER PASSING STATS
2018: 14-of-22 (63.6 percent) for 162 yards with 1 TD
2019: 237-of-354 (66.9 percent) for 2,941 yards with 25 TDs and 7 INTs
2020: 301-of-437 (68.9 percent) for 4,283 yards with 43 TDs and 8 INTs

Trask had a plethora of weapons to throw to over the last two years at Florida, including tight end Kyle Pitts and receivers Kadarius Toney, Van Jefferson and Trevon Grimes. Even if he doesn’t have the talent alone to carry an offense, that’s not a concern in Tampa Bay. The Bucs have the biggest and best offensive arsenal in the NFL in tight ends Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cam Brate, wide receivers Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Scotty Miller and running backs Leonard Fournette, Ronald Jones II and Giovani Bernard.

Trask doesn’t have an overly strong arm and he’s not very mobile. He’s more of a touch passer, but he’s accurate, has great ball placement and makes good decisions.

Trask is an okay player but his ceiling is very limited. I think Gabbert priced himself out of a roster spot IMO.
In terms of value it is not good. Trask will be the backup to Brady for two years.

How is it not good? Trask will learn behind the goat. He is no threat to Brady and both of them know this. Trask will get time to develop his skills and will at minimum be an option once Brady is gone. Trask was again, the right pick. He’s not flashy, but he checks the boxes that matter. He came in and stabilized the QB position for the gators. He throws a beautiful ball and has enough arm strength to be a threat pushing the ball down the field. I like this. Many of you again will dog this pick,… Read more »

A quality backup quarterback who has the ability to become a very effective starter to replace our old GOAT is the opposite of a wasted pick. Now Trask will have the opportunity to learn from the master, the GOAT. How many young quarterbacks have that advantage? Trask has already proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that he is perfectly willing to bide his time and learn the offense, and then when the opportunity comes, leverage the living hell out of it. Besides, the GOAT can go down at any moment to injury, just like every other player in the… Read more »

Licht went into this draft with 7 luxury picks. Everyone acknowledged it and now they are happening people are getting upset. These picks outside of Tryon wont See the field for at least a year and even Tryon will be a rotation player. This is about developing a qb is important for Tampa. And if he’s not the guy in 2-3 years, then you only used a low end second rounder on a him and you can move on. This move is about looking at the future. Hainsley, trask, and Tryon are all players that will make their impact once… Read more »

2nd Round Picks that would disagree with you.
Winfield, Davis, Marpet, Murphy-Bunting, Smith, and Rojo.
That is over a 50% hit rate and better than average for the 2nd round.

Good luck if a rookie has to play if Brady goes down. We’ve been down this road before. Our 99 defense was better than our Super Bowl defense in 02. Shawn king could only do so much. We need a capable veteran backup this season if Brady goes down

Michael76 probably thinks that Winfield, Davis, Marpet, Murphy-Bunting, Smith, and Rojo were 6th and 7th round picks. He has already shown his lack of knowledge of this Buc’s team by claiming earlier that the Buc’s have had no good 2nd round picks but were good on later round picks. The word I would use for Michael76 assessments is ignorant. Michael76 – Ignorant means – lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about a particular thing.

Trask was drafted to be the third QB next year. Trask should become the eventual second QB for the next four years. Gabbert wanted either more playing time or a much bigger payday. This pick is a smarter pick than the causal fan understands. Trask is going to be an inexpensive role player.

As the no. 64 pick, Trask will get a $5.24 million four year contract with a $1.37 million signing bonus per the rookie contract formula. An average over the four years of $1.31M. In 2020 Gabbert had a $1.19 million contract (signing bonus plus base salary). Not a significant difference there.

That’s exactly what college “experts” said when Trask was suddenly thrown in the game midway in his junior season to replace the starter lost to injury.
Somehow Trask ended up being the best quarterback in the SEC, and led the entire FBS in touchdowns his senior year and won the SEC East.
Blaine Gabbert never accomplished much for the Titans, nor in college for Missouri. Gabbert is a lifetime backup. Trask is bound for a far higher upside than Gabber will ever have.

I think some of these goobers just don’t realize exactly what Trask accomplished when he came in. I watched every minute of it and all the games he’s been in since. I could tell from the get go he was different. Franks always had a cannon arm but suffered from being able to make the right reads and put the ball where it needed to be. Trask does exactly what you want and he did it against some of the best defenses in college football. If the Gators defense last season was as good as the 2019 defense was, the… Read more »

A sixth round quarterback just took won us a Superbowl. Give Trask two years with Brady and let’s see what happens. 2020: 301-of-437 (68.9 percent) for 4,283 yards with 43 TDs and 8 INTs seems pretty solid to me. Doesn’t have a cannon for an arm but great placement and touch. If we don’t want him in two years someone else will. Best news is he finished 4th in the Heisman voting. We had two QB’s taken in the first round that won the damn thing and they don’t have any NFL hardware. A 6th rounder and a 9th rounder… Read more »

This is a great pick. Trask is a proven winner. He has gotten much better every year in college and just had one of the best seasons in SEC history. He has elite size and decision making, and he’ll have 2 years to work on any flaws. This is a perfect long term plan for the Bucs.

great backup, he’s the right choice bc he has done it everywhere, didnt start in highschool, COME ON MAN!!! one good year and we left many quality pics on deck, absolutely stupid! Brady should quit like Rodgers after that pick! Bucs are 1-2 year franchise team, then 10yrs terrible, not a quality franchise, so pick players to contribute to championship run now, WIN NOW. Tryon, and Trask will NOT help win championship should we lose Brady, JPP or Barrett. DUMB. future potential starters on OL available and immediate depth?!

Meh. This was a pick for next year maybe. Would have rather building depth in other areas. There is the OL in round 3 but OL DT or CB I thought should have been target positions. Hopefully Trask isn’t heard of for 2-3 years and then is a star. Go Bucs!

All I know is I watched the first game Trask came in to play for the Gators. I remember Frank just being garbage and the Gators just flat out dying for a savior. Trask comes in 3rd off the bench and immediately drives downfield for a TD and never looked back. The kid is tough and smart and has touch like no other. He is gonna learn from the GOAT who knows Trask is no threat and will hopefully teach him everything. Trask is a gamer and doesn’t get phased and could very well be the savior after Brady leaves… Read more »

It really amazes me how people judge QB’s. Trask led the NCAA in air yards per completion and they think he has a weak arm. No, his arm strength is probably a little above average. He doesn’t have a canon, so people think he’s weak armed. Just stupid. From a mental standpoint he’s really the closest thing to Brady we could get. He relies heavily on knowing where defenders should be and making the reads post snap. It was the biggest difference that I saw immediately when he stepped onto the field in place of Franks. He not only knows… Read more »

Arm strength is ridiculously overrated. What matters most is the strength between the ears, which Kyle Trask has in spades, and that is precisely what the GOAT has always had in spades. TB-12 has always been criticized by the brainless critics as lacking arm strength and mobility .. meanwhile Tom just keeps winning Super Bowl championships and Super Bowl MVP awards, decade after decade. Kyle Trask could not possibly have a better teacher and mentor than Tom Brady, and Tom Brady could not possibly have a better young protege than Kyle Trask. Any of those celebrated top first round picks… Read more »

Trask certainly has prototypical NFL size for a quarterback, and he is tough as nails, never gets hurt. People go “meh” over arm strength but arm strength is ridiculously overrated in quarterbacks. What matters the most – and what produced the GOAT – is the strength between the ears that Winston never had. And Trask has it in spades. He is not just a great “touch” passer but he has great ability to see the field and read college defenses. Now of course NFL defenses are a world above college defenses, so Kyle has a helluva lot to learn about… Read more »

I’m pretty surprised at the hate. I can understand to a degree because of the value here. But I assume that trask would of been gone by the third round and we got a backup center project with that pick anyways. I trust In licht and I trust that he thought this was the best pick for this team looking forward. It’s nice to know we have an entire roster coming back that just won the super bowl and also a future to look forward to. By the way I assume gabbert will be back and trask will over take… Read more »

So let me get this straight. We should be taking an old George Allen “The future is now” approach and not concern ourselves one bit about anything beyond 2021…..right? Thus, assuming we have a a really good team this upcoming season and are once again drafting at or near the bottom; just when do we get a chance to select a good QB who will have a chance to sit and learn instead of being thrown to the wolves before he’s ready?

Well, you make it sound like TB-12 is ready for the trip to the glue factory, but I think he’s still got at least two more good years to play .. and that happens to be the perfect amount of time for Kyle Trask to play like a sponge and suck it all in, then be ready to start thereafter.
Horse did well, and so has Scott Reynolds this draft. I sorta suspect that Jason Licht has been using Scott as his media sounding board, in payback for Scott’s unending rah rahing on behalf of Jason.

You and I are in agreement on this one. Wasn’t implying that TB12 is headed for the pasture. We all hope TB12 is able to play at somewhere near the high standard he has set for himself. We all eventually hear the chimes of Father Time and often it comes without warning. If the Bucs have determined Trask to be a suitable replacement in the on-deck circle, I’m good with it.

It’s simple really. Bucs needed a young QB to groom behind 44 year old Brady. They got that. He is a big kid 6-5 240 and throws a good ball. He’s smart out there and has good vision on the field. Who cares what pick he was. The Bucs were able to pick wherever they felt they needed. QB was a need. Fourth in Heisman. None of u know what he has the chance to become. Just give the kid a chance. Needed a young QB project and now we got one. Relax!

I’m fine with this pick, neither disappointed nor excited. He wasn’t drafted to make an impact this year and probably not the next. They will get a couple of years to see what he can do in practice, pre-season games, the film room, maybe some mop up time in a blow out game. It’s even possible that they re-sign Gabbart, trade Griffin for a future late round pick and Trask becomes the new 3rd stringer this year. If they think he’s ready after Brady retires he will already know the system. If not, they can look for a free agent… Read more »
