Just about every mock draft has Tampa Bay selecting either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota, but former Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory believes he should be taken number one.
“I think I’m worthy of the No. 1 pick,” Gregory told USA Today. “I would hope anybody in the draft would want to be the No. 1 pick. I know how I am as a player. I know my potential. I know what I can do. I know what I bring to a team. And I understand that this position is a premium. Everyone wants someone that can get to the quarterback. Everyone wants a quarterback. Everyone wants a left tackle that can block that guy that wants to get to the quarterback. I understand the game and where it’s headed, and I understand that there’s a big need, a big demand. I definitely think I’m worthy.”
Gregory is projected to go somewhere in the top 10, maybe even top 5.
