With Kyle Trask becoming a much more common topic of conversation, Buccaneers fans can get an idea of what he can do by watching another NFL player.

Many Buccaneers-Gators fans are already licking their lips at the thought of the Kyle Trask era moving closer by the day.

With Brady likely out at the end of the season, it makes sense that some fans see Trask as a worth successor.

The skeptics of the world look at another player in the NFL and his mediocre play and can quickly conclude that expecting something wildly different for Trask is silly.

A great player to see why with is Patriots quarterback Mac Jones.

Jones is a good comp for Trask because both were the least athletic options at the top end of their draft class while also possessing similar strengths and weaknesses as overall quarterbacks.

Both players are your more traditional pocket passers that get far more done with their arms than their legs. The issue with this is that Jones is struggling in the NFL despite being more athletic than Trask, having a better arm, and being more accurate in college.

It shouldn’t take much to see why this is a damning indictment on Trask’s skillset for the NFL.

None of this means that he can’t be a great NFL quarterback at some point, but lacking in these areas during a stark paradigm shift in the mentality of the game and what is valued at the position is a sharp mountain to climb under so much adversity.

It wouldn’t be the first time that Kyle Trask was able to silence the doubters and make a name for himself as a gamer when it matters, but the cards are stacked against one of the options on the Buccaneers roster for the future.
