The Bucs And Johnny: “Perfect Fit”March 16th, 2014
This isn’t Joe’s quote, it’s from one of the three big cheese NFL Network draft gurus, Daniel Jeremiah, the former NFL scout.
Jeremiah spoke on the recent “Path to the Draft” show Thursday.
“We’ve heard a lot about the Browns, we’ve heard a lot about the Jaguars. But I think you slide down to pick No. 7 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I think that’s a perfect fit for him,” Jeremiah said. “You’ve got a good running game behind you in Doug Martin. I love what Jason Licht has done in his first season with the team, very aggressive in free agency to fill a lot of holes.”
“I think they have a luxury here. You’ve got [Josh] McCown here at quarterback so he could play to start them off and then eventually you can slide in Johnny Football and go.”
There’s growing buzz that the Browns will use their second pick in the first round and take Fresno State QB Derek Carr. The key point is they’ll pass on drafting a QB with their No. 3 overall pick. Many believe either the Texans (No. 1) or Jaguars (No.3) will take a quarterback (not both) and the Raiders and Falcons won’t go QB, either.
And that scenario likely would leave either Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Football sitting there for the Bucs.
Oh, the next 7 1/2 weeks are going to be filled with excellent fantasies for Joe.
Hopefully, the Bucs will never have this good a draft position again under Lovie Smith. They need a QB for the future. This year should be their best shot to score a first-round superstar.
