The starting quarterback in 2014?
So if Josh Freeman is no longer the Bucs' quarterback of the future, who is? Rookie Mike Glennon now has a chance to stake that claim, but there's certainly a chance the Bucs will use next year's top pick — perhaps very high in the first round — on a quarterback. This week's very early 2014 mock draft by SI.com has five quarterbacks going among the top 10:
Projected: First to Jaguars
Skinny: The "Tank for Teddy" campaign is under way in Jacksonville and other cities. The junior has 14 touchdowns against one interception.
Projected: Third to Bucs
Skinny: The redshirt sophomore has seven touchdowns and no interceptions after 32 and six, respectively, under Chip Kelly last fall.
Projected: Fourth to Browns
Skinny: The 6-3, 222-pound redshirt sophomore has eight touchdowns and three interceptions and a career completion percentage of more than 66 percent.
Projected: Fifth to Vikings
Skinny: The fifth-year senior has six touchdowns and no interceptions in 2013 and had 69 touchdowns in his two previous seasons as starter. Rushed for 514 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2012.
School: Texas A&M
Projected: 10th to Eagles
Skinny: The redshirt sophomore and 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has 12 touchdowns and four interceptions while rushing for 255 yards.
Others to watch: Derek Carr, Fresno State; Kevin Hogan, Stanford; A.J. McCarron, Alabama; Aaron Murray, Georgia; Stephen Morris, Miami
