The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could draft the second best quarterback in the NFL draft since Andrew Luck. While Jameis Winston has a troubled background, he is running away as the best quarterback in the draft. Today Todd McShay said Jameis is the second best quarterback to come out in the past 10 years. One Luck was better than him.
“Andrew Luck would be the only one [ahead of him],” McShay said. “If you’re just grading off of what you see on tape, he’ll have the second highest quarterback grade that I’ll have given in the last 10 years. If you really look at it, his anticipation, the accuracy, the way he can extend plays. I know he’s not fast. We saw that. He didn’t jump well, he didn’t run well, who cares? He extends plays with his strength, his anticipation, his feel inside the pocket. That’s what’s special about him.”
That’s holding Winston in high regard, because Luck has come into the NFL and won every year since being taken with the No. 1 overall pick in 2012. Three straight seasons with 11 victories, and three straight playoff appearances for Luck and the Colts. So can the Buccaneers really pass on him?
