Assuming that’s true, cross the Bucs off the list of QB-needy teams in this year’s draft, which is probably a good thing. For now, at least.
Defensively, though, the Buccaneers are a mess at all three levels. One could argue going with a defensive tackle or edge rusher here at No. 5 would be the smart move. But remember, it’s a deep class along the defensive front, and Tampa Bay can look for some impact players later on.
Cornerback, however, isn’t anywhere near as deep. So with a clear-cut need in the secondary, the Buccaneers don’t hesitate to grab this year’s best corner, LSU’s Greedy Williams.
At 6-foot-2 and 182 pounds, Williams’ long and lanky frame should translate well into whatever defensive scheme the Bucs run in 2019.
Plus, LSU’s history with pushing quality defensive backs is too good to pass up at No. 5.
