TB: Jameis Winston Quick Recap

It wasn’t a surprise, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made it official by selecting quarterback Jameis Winston first overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.

The selection of Winston gives coach Lovie Smith a true franchise quarterback to build his Tampa Bay legacy around. While there is no shortage of question marks surrounding Winston, his skills outweighed the risk. Winston’s ability to stand in the pocket and make every throw on the field will work well with receivers like Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. Not to mention Doug Martin will bring the necessary protection in the run game.
