NFL Draft Rumors: Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking to draft quarterback


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers own the seventh pick in the draft but don’t expect them to use it on a quarterback. However, don’t dismiss the Buccaneers using another one of their picks on a signal caller as head coach Lovie Smith again reiterated this week that the team is seriously looking at the incoming quarterback class and could add a one in the later rounds.

No specific round projections were given, but Rick Stroud reports that the Buccaneers have a taste for quarterback this May and could come away with one.

This seems to only further support the idea that the Buccaneers are targeting Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray. He’s coming off an ACL injury, which will mean he’d be starting as a backup anyways, but his ties to the Tampa area are even harder to ignore.

Murray seems to be a fit for the Buccaneers but he’s not a lock to be drafted. Still, if the Buccaneers are looking at a quarterback, which it seems they are, Murray makes the most sense in more than one way.

    I could not agree more . Murray would be a perfect pick in 3rd or 5th rd. Play very well against tough SEC defenses .
