More Quarterbacks

February 25th, 2015

Bryce Petty

Still don’t think the Bucs should take Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota? Well, if you are in the crowd that wants to trade down, maybe this is for you.

In this BSPN report, “The Professor,” John Clayton, breaks down the other top quarterbacks in the draft and how they fared in the NFL Scouting Combine last week in frozen Indianapolis.

    I thought Petty threw the ball pretty good myself.

    opinions will change again on their pro days. if mariotta and Winston are worlds apart don’t trade down but if the gap isn’t that far off in terms of reading defenses and arm talent then I could be on board with a trade down as long as we trade back into the first round to make sure we got a quarterback

    No Thanks

    Here is the problem with the others….once Mariota & Winston are chosen….and I believe both will be at least top 10….perhaps top 6….no matter what.
    Then the next (maybe Petty) will likely be a reach to get ahead of the many other teams needing a qb…..So a QB that may be a 2nd round pick may end up in the 1st.

    Also, this is the reason why I think we will get a pretty good draft pick for Glennon.

  5. Luther Says:

    Petty’s arm is like a rifle with the accuracy of a water piston. It’s so sad to see a great arm wasted in the spread.

  6. Skyline Crew Says:

    The other QBs in this draft are 3rd round and later QBs. They have more issues than Mariota and Winston combined.

  7. Bill Says:


    I think the definition of reaching for a QB has changed, actually, we all know it has. In recent years we’ve seen the rules of the game strengthen the need for a QB. We’ve also seen the new CBA make them cheaper (rookie contracts at least). Demand goes up, cost goes down, you get the picture. 5 years ago, Petty in the first round might be a reach. Hell, Winston or Mariotta in the top 5 might be a reach… but not today, not anymore.

    Just for the record… I would be fine with the Bucs trading back and selecting Bryce Petty to compete with Mike Glennon for the starting QB gig… I like Petty… And all the extra draft picks would help us rebuild a bit faster… Hopefully…

  9. 87ForWinstonNOMariota Says:

    Don’t get me wrong….the drop off is steep after Winston and Mariota.

  10. brandonbucfan Says:

    Ask the Texans and Bills how important a franchise QB is. I don’t care which one we take-I will leave that to our staff-but you simply CAN”T be a playoff team without one. And no talk either about trading down in round two. We can get another stud either at OL or MLB. Remember how the SB BUCS were built with strength down the middle.

  11. WS99 Says:

    Petty arm looks great! His accuracy not so much. But man the kid looks like Elway and Aikman had a kid together.

  12. No qb in 1st Says:

    Smartest comment I’ve read on here
    In a while. Just beleve that is the best
    Way for us to go. I believe Glennon can
    Be great with OC Koetter and a good
    Oline. I hope you agree

    the time of peyton, brady, rivers, brees are all coming to an end. there is a very good chance that atleast 2 of these quarterbacks coming out of this draft are going to be in that class considered the new era of the quarterback. the one thing that will remain the same in this era and the next is that the top quarterbacks will be at the top of the draft, theres no such thing as trading down and getting a franchise quarterback without it being pure luck ask the patriots. jimmy garapalo may be the aaron Rodgers type of player but otherwise top 2 qb’s will be the best

  14. Robert 9 Says:

    seems to me the guys taken a little later have faired well.

    tannehill, the guy in MN, when was the SEA QB picked?

    sure wish we had a 3rd rounder on our roster. OH WAIT, WE DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    START HIM! would be the 1st time he got 1st team reps in training camp in his career.

    think about it.

    lemon, it’s in mike glennon.

  17. Robert 9 Says:

    yes, he was 3rd ranked buc4lyfe. I think he is solid, and look who he was throwin to hartline LOL

    to say he’s the reason wallace is a bust is a joke. wallace is a tweener and a diva. never was a true #1 and got way more than he was worth. the steelers surely have not missed him.

  18. Phillip Says:

    I’d take Tannehill all day, not his fault Mike Sherman is a terrible NFL coach/coordinator and only thought to use him like he did at A&M.. Mike Wallace is not a number 1 WR either.. You can put up good numbers for a couple years and not be considered a true #1 WR.. Anquan Boldin is the best example I can give.

    Bridgewater was a 1st round pick… Russel Wilson was a 1st round talent with 5th round height… You ask anyone back then about Wilson and they would say the same thing.. Give him 3 more inches and he’d be a top 5 pick in the draft he was in.

    Really needs to be some kind of moderation for people that are just assaulting other players or people on here.. It’s getting ridiculous on some of these threads..

  19. bucs4lyfe Says:

    who in the world is saying Wallace is a bust lol. im not giving you a hard time my friend all im saying is from your own mouth…..”I think he is solid, and look who he was throwin to hartline LOL” is that what you trade down for someone that looks solid? he’s an average quarterback but Miami cant do better than him and there are a lot of teams in that position. he’s no Philip rivers but I did say Wallace is a deep field threat and tannehill does not have a big arm, take that as you wanna take it but your words are tannehill is solid and that isn’t top 10 talent

  20. Robert 9 Says:

    the reached for tanneheill, agreed. he had very little experience as well, does not make him an excellent long term QB. not a top 10 draft talent agreed. i’m not saying we should reach for any #3 qb either for the record.

  21. Whocares92 Says:

    Robert 9 only doens’t want to take a QB because his boyfriend Glennon. He cares more about Glennon than the Bucs. Go be a Dolphins fan like you said you were!

  22. Phillip Says:

    Or he could see potential in Glennon and all those draft picks we get from the trade? There is nothing wrong with that…

    I’m not comfortable with just Glennon nor do I think he was EVER the answer and would prefer we get Mariota but if we don’t go out and sign Mallet (young and promising out and sat behind Brady for 3 seasons I believe) to battle Glennon in camp and sign a veteran QB who has actually been successful in the NFL (Hasselbeck, Orton type)

  23. unbelievable Says:


    No. Have you ever heard him talk?

    I doubt he learned much from Brady, + how well have any of his backups ever played once on other teams? Not very well.

  24. Phillip Says:

    So Matt Cassell didn’t have a good year while he was in KC? Guessing Brian Hoyer wasn’t playing lights out before he tore his ACL… Congrats dude

    Even if they DIDN’T have a good year which one of them had the talent that Mallet does? Keep moving along troll

  25. Bucfan4life Says:

    Read up on this QB class. There are two good prospects and then a HUGE drop off. Experts are saying that Winston is the best QB prospect in the last 10 years outside of Luck!

    They cannot and must not pass on both of these guys.

  26. Bill Says:

    Some of you need to come to grips with your hate for Jameis Winston. He’s top pick worthy. All this crap about Brady and Wilson is absurd, they are one of a kind finds.

    We may get a trade offer that is worth taking, I hope we do, because it would have to be exceptional. I’d trade ANY player for the right offer. If that doesn’t happen, we should pick Winston.

    I’m going to list every QB taken #1 since 1980. 17 out of 34 picks have been QB’s.

    P Manning
    E Manning

    There are 5 obvious flops in there, and two other possibilities in Smith and Bradford. We’ve got an even shot at getting a bust (Vinny, George, Couch, Carr, Russell) as we do getting a great (Elway, Aikman, Manning(2), Luck). There are an equal number of good but not great outcomes. My main point is this, when people say Winston is not worth the #1 pick, is that being based on the facts of the past? Or some personal hope of what the pick could be?
