      7  TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS:  TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, QB, LOUISVILLETeddy Bridgewater | Louisville Cardinals   On paper the Bucs would appear to have enough talent to compete with anyone in the league but for one reason or another the team grossly underachieved last season. The good news is it shouldn’t take long to turn things around. There is a new front office and coaching staff in Tampa and the fact that they brought in 35-year-old journeyman Josh McCown and immediately named him the starter speaks volumes about their feelings toward Mike Glennon, who doesn’t appear to be in the organizations long-term plans. With that being the case the first order of business is to figure out the quarterback situation since McCown is at best a stop-gap. The Bucs have been doing their homework on most of the top quarterback prospects but Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville may be the best fit, assuming Blake Bortles of Central Florida is off the board. In many ways Bridgewater is a taller version of Russell Wilson. A good athlete with adequate size and enough arm strength to make all of the necessary throws, Bridgewater can create with his legs if needed but he is a pocket passer first and foremost. Bridgewater also gets extremely high marks for his intangibles such as intelligence, work ethic and leadership ability and just seems to have an innate feel for the game. As the pre-draft process drags on Bridgewater has become a victim of over-analysis, with too many focusing on a handful of potential shortcomings while seemingly ignoring all of the positive qualities that he brings to the table.  Teddy Bridgewater | Louisville Cardinals As a result if Bridgewater gets past Tampa Bay he could experience an Aaron Rodgers-esque slide on Draft Day. The prospect that the Bucs truly covet is probably Clemson WR Sammy Watkins but he will most likely be off the board by this point, although Texas A&M WR Mike Evans would be a nice consolation prize. A top blocker such as Auburn OT Greg Robinson or Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews could prove to be awfully tempting as well and don’t totally rule out UCLA OLB Anthony Barr either.

      Lots of solid options for us at 7. All I know is we never end up drafting who I want. That’s probably not a bad thing either.. lol

      Im not saying Tim Wright and Brandon Meyers are a star duo, but I do think they give us enough to pass on TE in round 2 this year. I dont expect us taking a TE early. We needs guards, receivers, and most likely a QB before TE is considered.

      I agree, this is the best shape we've been in at TE since Winslow Jr was here. Neither Wright nor Myers are Jimmy Graham kind of guys but they're very soild TEs that will help us in the passing game. Myers is pretty underrated around here.

      If L&L are sold on Bridge or Manziel, and they’re there at #7, then I’m okay with that. But, I seriously hope they address G and WR with the next 2 picks.

      Scouting Report from NFP on Bitonio:Joel Bitonio - Offensive Tackle - NevadaSize - 6042 - 302 - 4.97Strong Points - Very athletic, productive run and pass blocker, play in space, use hands, alert, competitiveWeak Points -May be maxed out size wise, narrow hips, gets stalemated at timesSummation -Bitonio is a fifth year senior and a three year starter at Nevada. Has just adequate size at 6042 - 302. Has a bit of a narrow frame and may not have much growth potential.Tested out as one of the better athletes among offensive linemen at the Combine. Ran under 5.00 and his agility drills and jumps were excellent. Has top body control and balance.Plays from a two point stance and has very good initial quickness. In the run game he is able to come off the ball low and make solid contact. Keeps his feet moving and looks to gain ground. Have seen him get stalemated a few times against big people but usually is able to get some kind of movement. Takes good angles to the second level and can adjust on the move to hit a moving linebacker. Plays with bend and stays on his feet. Hand use is generally good but he will wind up at times with run blocks.In the pass game he can set quickly. Has the lateral agility to slide and cut off a wide speed rusher. Shows a good punch. Has the feet and agility to mirror opponents through moves and stay in balance. Because he lacks top lower body girth he will give ground at times to explosive bull rushers. Is very competitive and when this happens he re-sets his feet and bends more. Is a natural bender.Overall, Bitonio is very talented and athletic but his size is marginal. Because of that his technique has to be almost perfect. Has the tools to be a starter on the left side very early in his career. Some say move him to guard but I don't agree, he just doesn't have the natural size to hold up at guard. I see him as a solid second round pick. His frame is similar to Green Bay's David Bakhtiari who went in the fourth round last year, but Bitonio is stronger and more athletic.

      WE DONT NEED A QB!I understand all the hoopla involved with the new staff wanting a new qb… But honestly, there isn't a clear cut guy in this draft who is looking like a lock at QB. I think there is potential but we have TWO guys on roster who lead a team into the playoffs. We DON'T however have an offensive line that could get even Tom Brady through the reg season. Look at the roster. We have NO DEPTH and a TON OF ?'s. Don't get me wrong, we have some solid core components (Dotson, Meredith and the New guys) but healthy competition is what was need to be a contender and we are far from that. We should all get off the QB bandwagon because it's doesn't matter who is back there is the front 5 look like the central florida ice capades. After OL the next concern is WR (V-Jax is alone), then LB (If we have an injury to a single starter we are done) and then TE. WHO IS MAKING THESE MOCKS AND DO THEY WATCH FOOTBALL AND IF SO HOW LONG HAVE THEY DONE SO?

      Get what? We have two! Josh and Mike G are fine for what we will need on Offense given what are Defense SHOULD look like coming in. BUT in order for anyone to do that they will need to have an Offensive Line in place and we are far from that. Look at the roster. We have 1 center on roster. Nicks was good but has been injured a ton. Past the that we have a ton of question marks. We need to bring in at least a center a guard and a tackle that we expect to compete. That isn't saying "Hey we will find a guy or two as undrafted FA" but bring guys in we are excited about putting in place. Lewan is a gritty. Greg Robinson has a HUGE upside. Matthews is high on a ton of peoples boards. Bring somebody in. Lets get physical at the point of attack and give these QBs we have sometime because I think Josh can do some things and I feel like Mike Glennon could be a gunslinger behind a good OL. But look at the roster. NOT QB/RB/WR but who we have starting and who is backing them up if they get injured and you should see some flags that burn a bit brighter than Mike Glennon.Go Bucs.

      Then you should want some guys to block… We looked like a bunch of sliding glass doors last year. Bridgewater, Johnny Football, Blake Bortles… It doesn't matter who we bring in if they are not getting good protection. Get rewind and watch the tape.

      I completely agree with this, this roster has many holes and there doesn't seem to be a can't miss at QB this year.  We need to load up on OL and WR and likely try to get a guy at LB, DL, CB, and maybe TEThis isn't a team set up to win the Super Bowl this year, might as well see what we have this year with McCown and Glennon, and if need be, go all in for Mariota next year, that guy is going to a stud, but build a talented roster this year with one of the deepest drafts in recent memory

      Have rewind.  They have already got two FA lineman STARTERS.  We need guards.  ////All in for Mariota?  We'll be middle of the pack next year with LESS options at QB and a year later.  Cost will be HUGE to move.These are JUNIOR QBs coming out on average are NOT ready...  Won't be next year either.  The Bucs and the Raiders are in ideal situations to pick their QB if he's there to allow these underdeveloped guys to watch and learn.  If you're thinking a first round qb must start these days... Its an entirely different game with controlled salaries in the first round.Bottom line, I'll just disagree at this point.

      I agree, we need guards, at least one starting guard out of the draft, possibly two, I didn’t specify that but I thought it was obviousI agree that these JUNIOR QBs coming out now are not ready, and I just don't see any of them as can't miss prospects judging by your sig, you would like bridgewater, I just don't see him as a can't miss guy, I think Mariota would be the first QB selected this year had he come out and I'd love for the Bucs to get him next year.Also, what do you mean LESS options?  I assume you're referring to the QB's coming out next year, but it seems will be more options, (Mariota, Hundley, Petty, Winston, Mannion) and whoever else emerges

      I think the idea that THAT QB class is got great prospects is funny. You’ve got a mass of inaccurate guys and system players on that list. Frankly,move seen several people saying Winston isn’t a top end pro prospect.  In other words,it is a flawed group like this year and most other years.

      He was making the argument that there are going to be less options next year, I’m simply saying that there are more options.  I agree in the sense that other than Mariota, who I think will be a stud, next year’s overall talent level will be similar to this year, and like you say, many other years, I’m simply saying at this point it seems that there may be a few more first round options next year as opposed to this year.  All that said, Mariota is the guy that I would like to lead the Bucs, could he end up being mediocre, of course, but as of now, I think he’s the best QB in college football, including this year’s guys and if we don’t pick up a guy this year, i’d love to see us go after him next year

      I agree. I also think that a couple of these tackle prospects could play guard. Lewan, Robinson and Matthews could work at guard and create some versatility on the depth chart if we had injuries at tackle.

      When saying less options I am also taking into account that its going take way too much to get a guy next year.  Odds are we will pick middle of the pack or later.
