The Buccaneers finally have a quarterback that the fans are excited about in Tom Brady. Just because Brady is here, the Bucs still need to think long term. The draft is approaching, however, it will be different due to the Coronavirus pandemic. If the Buccaneers do draft a quarterback, it will be the right move for the future.
Every NFL team would like Joe Burrow or Tua Tagovailoa, but don’t expect Tagovailoa to make it past the Miami Dolphins. Justin Herbert from Oregon is a possibility, however, Jordan Love from Utah State seems more likely as of right now.
Below are several under-the-radar that no one should leave out in this year’s draft.
As a freshman, Fromm took over for fellow 2020 prospect, Jacob Eason after a knee injury sidelined Eason. In his three seasons with the Bulldogs, Fromm threw for 8,236 yards, 78 touchdowns, and just 18 interceptions.
After his sophomore season, Eason decided to transfer after losing his job to Fromm. A serious threat as a downfield passer, Eason put up 3,132 yards and tossed 23 touchdowns and just eight interceptions in his first year at Washington.
Perkins played for three different schools during his college career and led Virginia to the Orange Bowl last year against the Florida Gators. He made Second Team All-ACC last season and is a quarterback to be reckoned with in this year’s draft.
We are all familiar with Jalen Hurts. Hurts played for Alabama and transferred to Oklahoma for one season. Hurts is very athletic, and that could be a great asset, however, this is a passing league. Time will tell.

Gordon played for Mike Leach during his time in Pulman. He served as a backup to current Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew and started his career out at City College of San Francisco. Playing college football for Mike Leach is a great situation to prepare a quarterback for life in the NFL.

Whichever direction the Buccaneers go in the 2020 draft, don’t discount a quarterback being selected. Despite the presence of Brady. Ideally, offensive tackle will be the top priority. Especially if you want to ensure that Brady stays upright.
