    Mark, Most feel like we should use our first pick on a QB, but i am not convinced Mariota or Winston are worthy of a top 10 spot. I know it’s 6 months until the draft, but who would you pick right now between spots 1-4? One name only please.

    Mark, Pewter Report does a great job so I am comfortable asking this question. Why are we going back this point in time with McCown?

    Mark, Is DE Johnson injured enough that he isn’t a bust? How did our scouting department miss this?

    With PR’s access and insight, does Lovie’s decision to go with McCown make any sense? His move seems like the action of a coach scared for his job, rather than someone trying to give young players playing time to determine their abilities.

    I know the team has to do its due diligence on every player available for the draft, but please tell me we won’t actually draft Winston! There are typical college immature angst, and then there are Winston’s rape accusations and theft crimes, both of which turn me off as a fan.

    Mark, I read on another site that Brooks has been talking to Winston, and wants the Bucs to draft him. What have you heard? If true, he’d be the perfect in town mentor. That was my question, couldn’t make the chat.
