If you haven't heard, there is a new Buc in town.

Josh Freeman was drafted 17th in the first round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The man can pass and matches his arm with an amazing height advantage, standing at 6'6.  But what will it take to make him an NFL rookie turned seasoned vet?

These are the pressing questions I want to answer going into training camp and starting the 2009-10 NFL season.

You’re a Tampa Bay Buccaneer now.  Is this the team you thought you’d be playing for out of college?

So, while you were growing up and you saw your dad in the pro's, is that what you wanted to do?

Did you feel you always had natural talent or was it something you had to work at?

Why do you think made you drop to 17th in the 1st round?

Coming out of a stacked division in the Big 12, who do you think will be Tampa Bay's biggest opposition in the NFC South?

The fans love you, even the ones who don't know you, but they love what you could do for their team. 

Will you deliver?

Besides that great arm with an unbelievable frame, what do you feel are the strengths you bring to Tampa Bay?

We've all seen that you pick up fast on the offensive game, seeing the knowledge you gained from KSU.  How do you think you'll expand on that learning the Tampa Bay game?

You've said that people underestimate your quickness and speed.  Is that what you plan to use when you give Leftwich and McCown a run for their money?

Do you love to win or hate to lose?

Do you feel you have some valuable things to learn before you step on as a starter at Raymond James Stadium?

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I know I can't wait to see how this season pans out for the Bucs.

The NFC South was a strong division in 2008.  It will be interesting to see how things stack up this season.

One thing the Bucs have is youth on their side.  Some may say youth is unpredictable, but I think if molded, the explosive power that it possesses could be insurmountable.

It's anybody's game when playing in the NFL.
