April 30 (UPI) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected former Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask late in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday.

The Buccaneers took Trask with the No. 64 overall pick in hopes that he can eventually replace veteran signal-caller and seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady. The 43-year-old Brady is under contract for two more seasons.


Trask, who was the sixth quarterback drafted this year and the first taken after Thursday's first round, passed for 4,283 yards last season and had nine straight games with at least three touchdown passes.

He is the first Gators quarterback drafted since Tim Tebow, who went 25th overall in 2010. Trask also becomes the first quarterback drafted by the Buccaneers since Jameis Winston was taken No. 1 overall in 2015.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, who took ex-Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick Thursday, started the second day of the draft by selecting cornerback Tyson Campbell out of Georgia.

The New York Jets then grabbed Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore with the second pick (No. 34 overall) of the second round, giving No. 2 pick Zach Wilson a new weapon to throw to in New York.


In the third round, the Jaguars picked Syracuse safety Andre Cisco with the 65th selection. A pick later, the Minnesota Vikings chose Texas A&M signal-caller Kellen Mond.
