According to multiple reports, Jameis Winston is meeting with Bucs coaches, front office members, and owners in Tampa on Tuesday.
This visit with the Bucs is unusually early by NFL standards. Most visits with draft prospects come deep into free agency. By meeting with the Bucs today, there is not the distractions of free agency, which allows for Jameis Winston to be the main focus of everyone within One Buc Place.
According to league rules, the Bucs will only be meeting with Jameis Winston for today only. Jameis Winston will apparently be permitted to meet with the Bucs again before the draft for a private workout.
According to our sources, Lovie Smith, Jason Licht, and a few current Bucs' players were awaiting Jameis Winston's arrival this morning.
A majority of recent mock drafts have pointed to the Bucs taking Jameis Winston with the first overall selection on April 30th. While meeting with Winston this early doesn't point one way or another, it does show the due diligence the Bucs are doing on their potential franchise quarterback.
