Buccaneers are lucky to avoid massive mess in 2022 NFL Draft
By Rob Leeds
Tom Brady being back with the Buccaneers at least plays a small role in keeping the team from wasting a draft pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Thank goodness Tom Brady is back with the Buccaneers. Not just because it puts the Bucs in the best position to win football games in 2022, but it also completely ensures that the team won’t waste any valuable draft picks on a quarterback in the 2022 NFL Draft.
This already seemed like an unlikely prospect when considering last year’s pick of Kyle Trask in the second round, but the uncertainty surrounding the future made it seem like anything could happen a few months ago.
Either way, the Bucs are out of the running, and this couldn’t be at a better time.
This draft class is going to get people fired. Specifically, draft picks on quarterbacks in this class will get people fired.
Someone is going to reach on any of these options because they have a desperate need, and none of these options have the talent to change a franchise in the NFL with any degree of certainty.
In a day and age where the quarterback is so important to any roster, coaches are going to reach here, but this class is a far cry from what we saw last year.
Last year’s class had four or five guys that have legitimate prospects at the position going forward. This class may only have one, and even that is pushing it.
Coaches and GMs that need an injection of new blood are going to fall over themselves trying to get to the podium to call out the name of a quarterback that projects to perform like a Sam Darnold, and the Bucs can just sit by and laugh.
This is a great year to not have a need at the position. And who knows, it already looks like the Panthers are in a prime position to make a mistake with their only pick on the first two days.
