Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Re-Grading Bucs' Past 5 Drafts

Like many other NFL teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a checkered past when it comes to their recent draft classes.  

From late-blooming home runs, such as Gerald McCoy, to immediate impact players, such as Lavonte David and Doug Martin, the Bucs have definitely landed some outstanding young talent upon which their foundation is built.  They've even grabbed some valuable late-round contributors, such as Mike James, Erik Lorig and Dekoda Watson (though the former two left via free agency this offseason).

However, their misses have been frustrating and all too plentiful, including second-round strugglers Brian Price, Arrelious Benn and Da'Quan Bowers.

Here's how I would grade the Bucs' past five draft classes.



  • Each player is graded based on their expectations, considering how high they were drafted.
  • The overall grade for each class is not an average, and it also takes trades into consideration.
  • Players' grades are based only on their performances during their time playing for the Buccaneers.
