Can the Bucs find help with the 34th pick?

Everyone has an opinion about No. 1. The guy in the checkout line at Publix. The guy at the barber shop. The guy bringing the ice tea.

This is why Jameis Winston is worth the gamble, one guy says. This is why Marcus Mariota will be able to adjust to the offense, says another.

And so it goes, louder all the time, everyone saying the same things they have said since either guy threw a pass.

It is true that everyone has an opinion, but from what I am seeing, and hearing, is that Winston would be able to contribute more quickly than Mariota, and for the Bucs that is very important. He is more mobile, and with the Bucs O line that is very important.
Let’s hope that the recent Heisman trophy jinx will end if he is drafted by the Bucs.
