With the first pick in the 2015 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM KC Carpenter selects...

Florida State QB Jameis Winston

This pick was fairly easy. While I have touted BPA all offseason, there is always at least one exception to every rule. In this case, if you do not have a franchise QB, you have to get a potential franchise quarterback and hope it works out.

Taking Leonard Williams turns this team into the Bills. You do not want to be the Bills. A case could also be made for Marcus Mariota at numer one.  While I don't dispute that, I believe that the Buccaneers will prefer the quarterback with more experience in a pro-style offense.  The fact that Winston stays in Florida is a bonus. Further, I'd prefer not to be "that guy," in this mock.
