The Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to be in the market for a quarterback but the question is where will they end up taking one? There is talk of the BUcs spending their first round pick on someone should they fall that far but the more likely option sees them taking one in the later rounds.
With that strategy in mind, it’s more than notable that the team has met with Eastern Illinois standout Jimmy Garoppolo, as he could be an option for the Buccaneers later in the draft.

The Buccaneers have been linked to Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger, but Garoppolo remains a decent option for the team and he’ll likely be getting more and more buzz as the draft approaches.
Each year it seems one player we’ve only seldom heard of throughout the season surfaces as a big target for teams and while there are a few guys like that at various positions, Garoppolo seems to be that guy at quarterback.
