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.
Smith says while he feels good about Josh McCown and Mike Glennon, they could add a QB in draft.

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.
