2015 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft: Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Jameis Winston No. 1 overall

New, comments

The Bucs finally get their franchise quarterback.

The Big Blue View Community Mock Draft is officially open and the first selection is in.

The Pick

1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

GM - NewYorkWho

Pick - Jameis Winston, Quarterback (Florida State)

Explanation:

The Buccaneers have needed a quarterback for some time and Winston is the perfect player to turn the franchise around and get the ball to the receivers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.

Raptor's Thoughts

One of the top two quarterbacks pretty much had to be the pick. There's an argument to be made either way for selecting Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota with first overall pick in the draft. Either way the Bucs get the quarterback they desperately need. Otherwise they have a pretty complete roster. Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are fantastic targets for a young quarterback, and Doug Martin can be an effective running back -- as demonstrated by him leading his rookie class in yards per touch in 2012. On the defensive side, they have one of the best defensive tackles in the league in Gerald McCoy, and some nice pieces in the other levels of their defense. A franchise quarterback could make the Bucs a dangerous team very quickly.
