    With the 73rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Buccaneers select NC State QB Mike Glennon. The lean, strong-armed passer performed fairly well in a difficult situation (3,054 yards, 31 touchdowns) when asked to take over for Wolfpack legend Russell Wilson in 2011. If he improves his accuracy and pocket poise in his second season as a starter, as well as his ability to recognize what defenses are trying to takes away from him, scouts just might project him as an eventual starter.

    somewhat interesting. orlovsky is not a solid #2 so glennon may be an upgrade for them at the back-up position. and where they selected him, the bucs will only need to pay him chump change instead of $3 or $4 mill/yr, which is what they would have to pay a veteran #2 qb.

    in addition, this may lend credence to the theory that the bucs are viewing this season as a make or break year for freeman before they give him a huge contract.

    if freeman doesn't improve and glennon impresses the coaches, they could just let freeman walk.
