But that doesn't mean they aren't considering a first-round investment in one.
Tampa Bay has the No. 7 overall pick, and NFL teams are allotted 30 visits from prospects to their facilities. Those visits aren't planned lightly, and Bridgewater's visit to Tampa could be an indication that some or all of the aforementioned quarterbacks are on the Bucs' list of 30, as well.
Bridgewater is one of two Louisville players projected as first-round picks, along with safety Calvin Pryor, and might already be off the board when the Bucs make their pick. The Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders all have a need at quarterback and will draft ahead of Tampa Bay. And if Rapoport's report that Bridgewater has made the rounds among the clubs with top-10 picks is any indication, plenty of homework on Bridgewater has already been done.
