But the first round came and went on Thursday without a quarterback going to Tampa. After the Bucs grabbed wide receiver Mike Evans with the seventh-overall pick, Bucs coach Lovie Smith got behind Glennon.
"Why would we want to add a third quarterback to the mix? We needed other positions and forget just a quarterback position -- yeah, we like it, but we thought this was the best available player for us. It was an easy decision for us."
It certainly doesn't sound like the Bucs plan to take a quarterback on Friday, either. Playing under a different regime, Glennon showed real promise as a rookie. Keeping him in the building makes a lot of sense for a team that shouldn't be too confident in Josh McCown.
