Lovie Smith Would Consider A QB In Draft


Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine that he thinks a franchise-level quarterback will be available in the seventh spot, and that the Bucs will have to be mindful of that as a possibility.

“I know enough about that draft to know, yeah, there’s someone that would be worthy of the seventh pick because everything is on the board right now,” Smith said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “Whenever you have a chance to get a franchise quarterback, you have to consider that.”
