Buccaneers pick Florida’s Kyle Trask, potential Tom Brady successor, in 2021 NFL Draft

Kyle Trask is staying in the Sunshine State.

The Florida quarterback was selected with the final pick in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday. He landed with the Buccaneers, and, well . . .

There’s a guy named Tom Brady currently rostered with the Bucs, and he’s coming off his seventh Super Bowl victory and first with Tampa Bay. 

Brady also inked a contract extension this offeason, locking him into the Bucs for at least one more season, through 2022. 

Trask was once considered a potential first-round QB, but questions about arm strength, mobility and mechanics landed him at pick No. 64 and as a backup to Brady. Not a bad spot to land if he’s strictly a pocket passer, as he gets to play behind arguably the greatest pocket passer in NFL history.

He had a monster season as a Gators senior in 2020, tossing the ball to first-round picks Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney. Trask threw 43 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.

The NFL world reacted accordingly to the  completely non-existent quarterback controversy in Tompa Bay.
