Bucs want a QB?
The Bucs signed Tom Brady this offseason and they will probably avoid drafting a quarterback with the first pick, but they still have to be interested in one at some point right?
Well if you disagree with me (for some reason) look no further than Albert Breer who said that the Tampa Bay Bucs are interested in adding a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft:
"I’d keep an eye on the Buccaneers potentially drafting a quarterback in April, which would not be unlike when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning in March 2012 and drafted Brock Osweiler a month later. Obviously, Tampa Bay will eventually need an heir to Tom Brady, and it’d make sense to get one in-house who’ll get the benefit of learning from him. And there are a couple raw, big-armed prospects out there in Utah State’s Jordan Love and Washington’s Jacob Eason, who could slip a little in the draft, and also could use a redshirt year or two to develop."
This makes a lot of sense and whether it is Jordan Love or Jacob Eason, it is a good idea to start thinking about the future immediately. For as much as Tom Brady may believe that he can play until he is 45, all signs point to him having a year or two left before retirement.
If that is true then moving up to grab a QB now without using your 1st round pick in 2019 or 2020 feels like a no-brainer right?
The Tennessee Titans are more than inclined to help, and the relationship between Jon Robinson and Jason Licht should also be helpful here. But is that the only reason why the Bucs should consider moving up to 29 instead of 22 or 25 or any other pick before Tennessee’s?
Well actually, this move has more to do with the Green Bay Packers who are dreaming of a Jordan Love fall.
