There are probably plenty of players heading into this NFL Draft that would love to play with a good up and coming quarterback. Maybe even a QB like Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston. He’s set a few NFL records like becoming the first QB to start his career with consecutive 4,000-yard passing seasons and was the youngest QB to throw for 3,000 yards in his first season.
Well, there’s one top running back in this class in particular who really wants to play with Winston and that’s because he has some familiarity with him. Former Florida State running back Dalvin Cook said that he would love to reunite with his college QB and that it would “be a dream come true” if the Bucs made it happen.
This might be a possibility, but only if the Bucs are willing to trade up in the draft as they have the No. 19 pick and most mock drafts have Dalvin Cook going by the 15th pick. However, if he does fall to them he would likely be the perfect replacement for Doug Martin whether he sticks around in Tampa or not. Coach Dirk Koetter has made it clear that running back is a priority for this team this offseason.
