4. Jameis Winston
Do the Tampa Bay Buccaneers regret going with Jameis Winston at No. 1 back in 2015? While there have been numerous occasions in which Winston has looked like a top quarterback in the league, his 21-33 career record with no playoff appearances is concerning.

Picking up Winston’s fifth-year option last April seemed like a decision that Tampa Bay had no other choice but to make, but 2019 could turn out to be the most important season of the young quarterback’s career.
Luckily, part of the reason behind Tampa Bay’s decision to hire Bruce Arians as their new head coach was the hope that he would help Winston turn things, and finally live up to the hype from four years ago when he was selected as the top overall pick.
If this happens, and Winston does put together the best season of his NFL career, the Buccaneers could be open to rewarding him with quite a hefty contract to keep him around for the long run.
But also, if Winston only puts together a decent season in 2019, and Tampa Bay isn’t 100 percent convinced, the franchise tag could always come into play as well to give them another year to come up with the best decision.
