Again, it is hard to stress how few glaring holes the Buccaneers have when the offensive line has been taken care of. The secondary took massive strides forward towards the end of last season and it wouldn’t make a lot of sense to use another pick on that unit at this point.

While all of the other picks are geared towards winning in 2020, if Jacob Eason was available by this point in the draft he would be hard for the Buccaneers to pass up.

Unfortunately, it is unlikely that Eason would still be on the board here but it’s fun to dream.

This would certainly be another value pick, but the idea of giving the raw but talented Eason two years to learn under the greatest quarterback of all time could leave the Buccaneers in a great spot when Brady inevitably leaves down the road.

Jacob Eason is one of the more intriguing project quarterback options of this draft class even though his ceiling is probably not as high as Jordan Love’s.

Even though it makes the most sense for the Buccaneers to go all-in on this season, Tampa Bay needs to be proactive in not getting caught unprepared for the departure of Brady.

This is a tactic that worked extremely well for the Kansas City Chiefs who drafted Patrick Mahomes to learn under Alex Smith.

This pick may be more wishful thinking rather than one that is very probable, but the Buccaneers need to make the most of every pick in this draft so that a complete rebuild isn’t required in two years.
