It appears as if the Bucs will have their new quarterback on April 30th. While most people will debate between Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston over the next two months, the vibe around the NFL is that the Buccaneers have already made their decision.
Appearing on the 1st episode of Path to the Draft for 2015, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said that the Bucs apparently have their guy.
"I have not talked to one person who doesn't think the Bucs are going to take Jameis Winston number one," Rapoport said. "All signs point to that."
Ian Rapoport is as connected as anyone in the NFL. By working for the NFL Network, Rapoport has more access than most reporters covering the NFL. I do not believe this is a report just to get views or clicks. I believe that this is the way teams are thinking around the league, and that the Buccaneers will make it official on April 30th.
