Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Reviewing the Drafts of the Mark Dominik Era
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Since his hiring as general manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, Mark Dominik has overseen five drafts. These drafts, as you will see in the article, have varied greatly in terms of success.

Draft success is defined as finding prospects who contribute to the team in a positive way. A successful draft should uncover late-round gems. An unsuccessful draft will add players who do not help the team, when prospects who would have aided the team more could have been found within the same round as the less helpful selection.



There will nothing as reductive as a draft grade within the slideshow. This slideshow will simply look at the reasonings behind why the club made certain picks and the postmortem results of each draft, basing conclusions off how much the prospects added to the team and if other selections would have helped the Bucs more.

 

 

When the article looks at other possible draft picks, it will only consider players selected in the same round as the Buccaneer prospect in question.


Please read with a mind willing to accept that there is no completely objective way to review drafts. A lot of it is speculation. So please realize that some subjectivity is inevitable.
