I’ve learned over the years that no one – not the fans, the media or NFL front offices – knows how to scout rookie QBs. It’s statistically unlikely Trask becomes great based on his draft position but I’m going to withhold judgement on the prospect until we actually see him play.
My issue with the pick is the timing. If everything goes as planned, Trask won’t play a meaningful snap for two years. If he lights the world on fire in his first year as a starter then the team has to extend him. You can’t let these QBs get into the final year of their contract and get negotiating leverage with the tag value as a baseline. The Bucs would only have one year to capitalize on the QBs rookie contract. That is not ideal.
