Buccaneers tab QB Kyle Trask as Brady's potential successor

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) As the second round of the NFL draft neared its end, Kyle Trask kept glancing at his cell phone in anticipation of a call.

The former Florida star knew there was a good chance the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were interested in grooming a young quarterback to potentially become Tom Brady's successor. He's ecstatic it turns out to be him.

"It's totally surreal for me. I'm just trying to soak it in and enjoy the moment," Trask, who completed 69% of his passes for 4,283 yards and 43 touchdowns in his final college season, said Friday night.
