Jameis Winston is becoming a leader in Tampa Bay

It is not easy to be an NFL quarterback, the transition is never easy. You very rarely see a quarterback come into the NFL and dominate his competition because the speed is so much different. Well one Buccaneers player feels Jameis Winston the Buccaneers first overall pick will be different. Luke Stocker the former Tennessee tight end feels Winston is picking up the offense fairly quick.

“He’s extremely talented,” Stocker said, via “No need to say it. Everyone knows that. What is impressive is the speed that Jameis has picked everything up — from the huddle to the cadence to the checks to the audibles. He’s picked everything up so fast.

“It’s not only everything he can mentally retain, but it’s also the hours he’s spent away from here in his playbook. We only get so many hours with the coaches here, but it’s the hours he puts in outside of the assigned time so he can come out here to practice and we don’t miss a beat. It’s impressive and really encouraging.”

There is something about Jameis Winston that makes me feel he will be a star in the NFL.
