Bucs take Florida QB Kyle Trask to conclude 2nd round


(AP/WFLA) – Tampa Bay made Florida Heisman Trophy finalist Kyle Trask the first quarterback taken during the second day of the draft with the final pick of Round 2.

Trask is the sixth quarterback taken overall after five went in the first 15 picks Thursday night. He finished fourth in the Heisman voting after a record-breaking season with the Gators and now he’ll compete to be the backup to Tom Brady.

Later on Friday night, with the 95th overall pick, the Buccaneers selected offensive tackle Robert Hainesy from Notre Dame.

Hainsey is the third member of the Irish offensive line taken in the second and third rounds.

During Round 1, the Buccaneers selected Washington outside linebacker Joe Tryon with the 32nd pick.

An edge rusher from the University of Washington, the 252-pound Tryon will add some much-needed depth at the linebacker position.
