Randy Gregory thinks he's the best player in the draft, anyway. That's what he wrote in his Draft Diary for USA Today.
I think I'm worthy of the No. 1 pick. 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. And I definitely think I'll show that at the combine and when I get out there in the NFL.
Every top player thinks he's best-in-class, but I don't think he'll go that high. It's not completely unthinkable, though. If the Bucs don't like either QB, Gregory is a better fit for their defense than USC's Leonard Williams, who's widely seen as the top player in the draft. Provided they can't find a good trade down, drafting a pass-rush specialist is perfect for Lovie Smith. Gregory's a bit undersized for a 4-3 DE, but Smith loves those undersized speed rushers so that shouldn't be a huge issue.
Of course, there's one rather huge problem here: if they don't draft a quarterback, they don't have a quarterback worth starting. And if they don't have a quarterback, they can't win games.
