As you know, talk is heating up of the Bucs possibly trading Mike Glennon. The Bucs will only settle for a 1st round pick in exchange for Glennon, as of right now, and if they don't receive that his contract ends after next season. Glennon will most likely leave in FA and the Bucs would have to settle for a compensatory pick. In this article I am going to make my case to draft Ohio State QB Cardale Jones in the 4th Round.
I know there are a lot of questions with the former Ohio State QB, but I also see a lot of potential. At least enough potential to be a very solid backup to Jameis Winston. Cardale Jones has elite arm talent and is a fiery competitor. He also possesses the killer attitude I believe needs to be injected into the Bucs locker room.
Cardale Jones, also known as 12-Gauge, is 6'5 253 lbs. Last year, it was rumored that if he would of entered the 2015 draft after leading Ohio State to a National Championship, he could of been a first round pick.
I believe under the Buccaneers great offensive coaches, Cardale could develop into a great pro QB. I also believe that Bucs' training camp would be a much watch having Cardale try to outdo Jameis on every throw. The kid loves to win and might even hate losing as much as Jameis. If you don't believe me on his love for winning, you should look into the hospital visit he made to play video games with a kid that was a fan of his.
Lastly, drafting Cardale in the 4th round, and having him on the roster for the future, will start to squash all the comments about how the Bucs' season would go out the window if Jameis ever got hurt. I truly believe Cardale Jones will be a legitimate QB in the NFL with proper development and coaching. For those reasons, I believe the Bucs should take a long look at Jones in the 4th round of this year's draft.
