The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the seventh overall pick in the draft but what they’re going to do with it is still a mystery. While it’s projected that Sammy Watkins will be their top choice, there’s no guarantee that he’ll even be there when the Bucs are on the clock which means backup plans are needed.
While nothing is definitive, the Bucs could be looking at a quarterback with their first-round pick, and that could end up being Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

The Buccaneers have two quarterbacks already, but one of them is just a stop-gap while the other is someone Tampa Bay is unsure of. Drafting Bridgewater would ignite a full out quarterback controversy in Tampa Bay but that’s something that we haven’t seen in a very long time down south.
Bridgewater too could be gone by the time the No. 7 pick rolls around, but it’s clear the Bucs are keeping their options wide open.
