Tom Brady may have already led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory in his first season with the team, but that didn't stop them from selecting his successor at the 2021 NFL Draft. After all, Brady is 43 years old and there's no telling how much longer he'll play for.

When the Buccaneers drafted Florida Gators QB Kyle Trask with the No. 64 pick, the hope was that Brady could mentor him until he was ready to grab the reins. Fortunately, it seems like "TB12" is already embracing his new role.

Trask was interviewed on the NFL Network on Thursday and said that Brady has already reached out to him about throwing the football around. Buccaneers fans should be stoked to see their present and future quarterbacks getting along already.

The fact is that Trask has one of the best opportunities imaginable. While giving a rookie signal-caller a mentor is nothing new, it's not every day you get to learn from someone like Brady. He's one of the greatest QBs in the sport for a reason and the future in Tampa will be bright if Trask can even absorb half of what Brady has to share with him.

The former Gators quarterback already has a solid foundation to build off of. Throughout 27 games over three seasons with Florida, Trask threw for 7,386 passing yards and 69 touchdowns to 15 interceptions. He was a second-team All-SEC player in 2020 while winning that year's Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award as the top offensive player in college football.

When you look at Brady's mentorship abilities and Trask's raw skills, Buccaneers fans could be in for the perfect storm at the quarterback position. Regardless of what ends up happening, it'll be interesting to see what Trask becomes with a seven-time Super Bowl champ as his mentor.
