No. 2: Jameis Winston and Mike Evans

From their 2-14 record, one can easily tell the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t have much going in 2014. But one bright spot for the Buccaneers was receiver Mike Evans, who had over 1,000 yards and 12 TDs. And he got it with Josh McCown, who had one impressive five-game stretch in his eight years in the NFL.

That five-game stretch was in 2013 so Evans didn’t have that McCown as he was just a rookie in 2014. So the No. 1 thing the Buccaneers had to do was get a quarterback and they got their guy this offseason. They have veteran Vincent Jackson, a big-time receiver himself, on the other side so opposing defenses will have to be honest.

Along with the running game they’ll get from Doug Martin, the Buccaneers have everything they need for the vertical passing game. Jameis Winston isn’t just the most pro ready quarterback in the draft but he has a big arm to get the ball down the field to Jackson and Evans. So there will be fireworks in Tampa Bay as the young gun-slinger is there to put he and Evans at No. 2.
