Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers’ quarterback situation is much more cut-and-dry than the Cardinals. Tom Brady hung up his jersey and rode off into the sunset this offseason, leaving Tampa Bay without a franchise cornerstone behind center.
The front office drafted Kyle Trask in the second round in 2021, and former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield now dons the Pewter jerseys. Even the biggest Trask/Mayfield fans would admit this is not an ideal scenario for an NFL franchise.
The bright side? Neither quarterback is going to win many football games in 2023. After getting a taste of being a contender with Brady in tow, the Bucs should be willing to suffer a down year in hopes of landing the next signal-caller of the future.
Caleb Williams would arrive in Tampa with an impressive offensive line (when healthy) and some exciting, albeit older, targets in the passing game. Mike Evans is approaching the end of his prime, and Chris Godwin is not too far behind. Nonetheless, the duo would help ease Williams into the league. If the Bucs are bad enough to select No. 1, the choice is a no-brainer.
