The Buccaneers definitely don’t need these players in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The 2021 NFL Draft is approaching, and people tend to focus on players that their team needs. Mock drafts reflect holes that the teams deal with, and fans of franchises like the Buccaneers are already familiar with numerous names that their team could target before another Super Bowl run.
While many names should excite the fanbase, there are also plenty of names that should inspire a bit of fright. The Buccaneers would be very smart to avoid these players in the upcoming draft.
Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
Kyle Trask projects to be little more than a backup in the NFL. For all the Gator fans who are upset at a Seminole’s biased opinion, Trask is still leaps and bounds better than anyone FSU has fielded for the better part of a decade.
When evaluating a college player for a life in the NFL, scouts look at athleticism, head for the game, and arm talent. Trask is clearly a great leader and has a strong understanding of the game, but he falls very short in the other areas.
For a player that popped in college and almost won the Heisman trophy, a deeper understanding of Florida’s offensive weapons (a potential Hall of Fame tight end and a first-round receiver) shows where Trask’s unbelievable numbers came from.
The Buccaneers don’t have a need at quarterback for now. With Brady on the roster for two more seasons, there is plenty of time for the Bucs to find a better successor with more upside down the line than Trask.
