Kyle Trask should get an extra share of the spotlight as the Buccaneers kick off their rookie mini-camp.

As rookie mini-camps start throughout the NFL, the defending Super Bowl champs will get a new level of coverage from the national media in a way that hasn’t been present in the Tampa area for decades. One of the biggest stories to follow will be Kyle Trask’s first workouts with the Buccaneers.

Trask is already a bit of a polarizing figure around the Bucs fanbase, largely due to the college he attended and the deep CFB rivalries in the state of Florida, but all of that is behind us now.

Trask is a quarterback for the Buccaneers, and all of us need to keep our fingers crossed that our recent second-round pick will find success with this team.

Kyle Trask is a dice roll for the Buccaneers

Is the Bucs’ newest quarterback Tom Brady reincarnate? Probably not, but there are still plenty of weapons in Tampa to help the rookie carve out a decent start to his career in the upcoming preseason games.

One thing is for sure: Trask will be much more fun to watch at the start of the season than Ryan Griffin. Trask has the upside and the prestige to make for some very entertaining preseason games alongside new receiver Jaelon Darden, so that much is at least worth looking forward to.

While the coming practices won’t tell much as to where Trask projects to be as a player, this time will be invaluable towards building rapport with some players and coaches leading up to training camp. A couple of excellent practices now would help Trask make up some ground over the solidified quarterbacks already on the roster.

Trask probably won’t see the field much in year one, but there is a chance that he could have a great camp and challenge Blaine Gabbert for the second spot behind Brady if the cards fall right.

It will likely take several weeks for the story of Kyle Trask to begin taking shape, but the excitement in the building for a new early-round quarterback on the roster (and one under the age of 30) is easy to get behind.
