The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be mulling the decision to draft a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft. Here’s a look at three QBs to consider.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are likely to re-sign QB Jameis Winston using the franchise tag during the 2020 offseason.
Though most expect the Bucs to give Winston a year-extension, that still doesn’t mean the organization won’t consider selecting a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft.
If the Buccaneers do decide to go after a quarterback in the draft as a potential ‘insurance policy,’ here are three options the organization could consider.
3. Jacob Eason
Though Jacob Eason has plenty of flaws, the one thing he does have is the ‘it’ factor.
Eason is 6-foot-6 and has a strong arm. He throws the deep ball with solid accuracy and even though he floats the ball at times, he could be a nice pick-up in the second-round should the Buccaneers elect to go that route.
If you give Eason a year or two in Arians’ system, he could develop into a great quarterback. He does a decent job of refraining from turnovers and shows good understanding when it comes to concepts.
There are reasons not to draft Eason, but the Buccaneers could certainly consider him as a late first-round option or early second-round option if they made some trades. Depending on who you believe, Eason is anywhere between a top-15 pick and a second-rounder.
