Which is more useless, Combine or Pro Day?
Bridgewater had a terrible Pro Day and was the best QB drafted last year.
Manziel & jamarcus russell had great Pro Days and look were they are.
Iam a Fsu Qb Fan. But Iam now distrubed that there are more charges on Winston off the field. problems.I hope the bucs would get this sistutation right. May be Tampa should go a different directions right now. No#1 Get another QB like B Hundley in rd-2 or late rd-1. Trade down for good picks besides Tampa other 8 picks. Lets see between now and April 30. Have teams let the bucs know what that #1 pick would cost them.Look at the Tampa sistutation as of now. No#1 how close was Tampa in at least 5 games that Tampa lost was by 7 pts or less. Look at Cleveland browns they have 2 picks in Rd-1,4 &6. If Phila wants to move up what are they willing to give up. The reason I ask this If Tampa move down they must have at least 1 & 2 rd pick next year and mult picks this year. Or build up picks in mult trade down if a team or teams want to move up. I also like Qb Brett Hundley from UCLA and also I like the two QB coming out in Miss State and Michigan St that will be available. What Iam saying We have a great schedule to return to the playoffs with we could get a whole bunch of draft choices to build this team now.Go Bucs I hope Tampa Organization would look at my comment. Tampa Has Time to make its mind, and do it right. Just think all the money that is spent on players backgroun and family and what they did on each player. DO NOT PICK WINSTON if you may have a better LONG TERM SOLUTION. How man good players was taken in the mid rounds.
I am still for going QB this year. The Bucs need to just go with the best QB this year and build. I’m sure they’ve vetted more deeply than anyone just reading online articles.
As for QB’s in the 2016, they don’t look any better. Here is one analyst’s recent observations on Connor Cook:
“WEAKNESSES: Tends to ignore his footwork and lower half mechanics and with 58.7-percent completions, he has room to improve his ball placement, especially downfield. He is too willing to throw off balance before his body and feet are set and attempts to ?arm? everything once moved from his original spot.
Cook doesn’t consistently play loose and has the bad habit of playing rushed, allowing himself to get frantic and firing without locating defenders. He appears to be constantly in controlled panic mode, keeping his eyes downfield with a survivor mentality. ”
CC doesn’t look any better than JW at this point, so why wait a year and go through what could turn out to be another new Coach and GM if they trade down and blow this draft?
What I mean is the two QB’s would be available in 2016 not 2015! What would anyone else agree with my observaTION!tHANK yOU fANS
georgehicks; Not to be worry here. There are no new charges and there wasn’t any before either. This is just garbage brought up by a few who are trying to convince others that we should stay away from Winston. No matter what the Bucs do there will always be a few who will express their dislike with ugly words. This is not life and death here. If one dislikes what is happening they can always change the channel, not buy tickets, go support another team.
