1. WINSTON’S ARM STRENGTH – The Bucs need a strong-armed quarterback that can sling the football all over the place and Jameis Winston’s arm is plenty strong.

2. WINSTON’S POCKET PRESENCE – New Tampa Bay offensive coordiantor Dirk Koetter’s system is based on a pocket passer and Jameis Winston is an ideal fit with a high football I.Q. that could allow him to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in time.

4. WINSTON’S MORE MOBILE THAN YOU THINK – Although he ran a 4.92 in the 40-yard dash, Jameis Winston is more mobile and athletic than the NFL Scouting Combine revealed.

5. WINSTON’S COMEBACKS – Winston gets knocked for throwing 18 interceptions last year with 13 of them coming in the first half of games.

9. WINSTON’S A CHAMPION – Can Jameis Winston win it all? He’s already done it before, winning a national championship at Florida State as a redshirt freshman in 2013. Winston knows what it takes to become a champion and can bring that experience to Tampa Bay. Photo by: Getty Images

WINSTON’S GOT SWAGGER – For all the years Bucs fans have had to watch Green Bay’s Brett Favre, New Orleans’ Drew Brees and Carolina’s Cam Newton exhibit swagger against them, Tampa Bay finally has a quarterback that will bring some swagger to their team’s offense.
