Jason Licht Breaks Down The Draft

 
Jason Licht Breaks Down The Draft
Posted May 12th, 2014 @ 3:32pm

Following a weekend of drafting, Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht joined the Big Dog to break down the team's selections, including the decision to take wide receiver Mike Evans instead of his Texas A&M teammate, quarterback Johnny Manziel.

"We felt that getting Mike Evans was going to make our quarterbacks better," Licht explained.  "We feel like he's a dominant player, and it's a two-fold thing.  Not only is he a great player, but he also makes our quarterbacks better."

Licht also said that any talk about the team wanting a second-round draft pick in exchange for quarterback Mike Glennon did not come from inside One Buc Place, and that Glennon has all the qualities both he and Lovie Smith look for in a quarterback.

"When you look at the top things we look for in a quarterback -- one being intelligence, two being accuracy, three being toughness," Licht said.  "And then the fact that both [quarterbacks] have a strong arm, particularly Mike has a cannon.  These are the types of quarterbacks you want to work with now and in the future."
