This is going to be a real interesting next 3 months for Bucs fans with regular and off season moves.

At the end of the day we won’t torpedo the franchise with a QB in the 1st due to the newer rookie salary structure. 

New HC/GM or not, I think we need to take a long and hard look at Will Grier in the 1st. His footwork is horendous from what I’ve seen but the guy wins, kind of like Cam Newton (as much as that pains me to say). Grier can complete passes at a high rate in college and doesn’t have the same turnover issues one year to the next that Jameis had his 2 years at FSU. 

Resign Fitz no matter the coach (the players love him) and have him mentor Grier and let’s have 5 more seasons of a cheap QB while we try to get somewhere with all this talent around him.

Going to be hard to draft a QB in the first round with all the defensive talent that is going to be on the board.    I want dline in the first round.

My heart tells me we go 5-3 the next 8 my mind tells me we finish 3-5 and pick top 10 again. Either way we must address DE, CB, and OL early.

Maybe we take a shot on a QB like round 3. DE first pick and get a guard r2.

Can fix CB issue in FA.

Just my personal preference, I don t like drafting QBs after the first round. Also, less inclined with a draft not considered very deep.

I would be more inclined to use a draft pick on a young back up in the league already.  Personally, no one excites me in that dept, but I would rather spend a 3rd that way then drafting another Glennon.

Generally speaking, the only worthwhile QBs in the NFL are first and second round picks.

I wouldn't mind taking dline with our first pick (or trading back in a deep class and taking dline) and trading up for a QB we might like late in the first. Or even trading up to 2.1 or 2.2 and taking the first QB day two.

anything is possible especially with a new GM.  The Bengals and Raiders have recent history going QB 2nd round.  I m in the minority, I don t have an issue bringing back any of the QBs currently on the roster and spending my first three picks on both lines.  They don t dominate the LOS on either line right now.  Enough with the QBs taking big shots in the pocket.  Some of that is scheme, but the oline overall is very average.

Building up everything around the QB and (potentially) taking one next year is also an option. And one I wouldn't be against.

Has anyone done much homework on these QBs? In my opinion guys with 2nd and third round grades will will get bumped up

I haven't.

Grier and the guy from Duke are the two I've seen talked about the most.

Of course... ugh. 

Makes me want to lean towards trading for Carr even more.

Even though Mariota hasn’t become an elite stud, he’s in the middle of the pack which would have been great with these weapons.

Teddy Bridgewater is really my guy in FA. I can’t see Sean Payton throwing much $ at him to stay. Sure he can sell him on Brees retiring he’d be the future but like Jimmy G in New England, “when’s that happening”? 

The only way I see bridgewater returning to NO is if Brees retires.
