QB Trent Dilfer and S Dexter Jackson have been picked by the Buccaneers to announce a couple of this year’s draft picks. The Buccaneers former quarterback Trent Dilfer is lined up to select the 39th pick overall (second round) and Buccaneers former safety Dexter Jackson will pick 70th overall (third round) pending any trades made during the draft.
Trent Dilfer was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6th overall in the 1994 NFL draft. He played for six seasons with the Bucs, recording 12,969 yards passing on 2,038 attempts for 70 TDS. Additionally, Dilfer carried the football 165 times for 650 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was the first Bucs quarterback in franchise history to be selected to the NFL Pro Bowl in 1997. He also won Super Bowl XXXV with the Baltimore Ravens in 2001.
Dexter Jackson was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 4th round, 113th overall. He played six seasons with the Buccaneers, recording 8 INTs for 164-yards 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 219 tackles. Jackson helped win Super Bowl XXXVII with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003, in which he was awarded Super Bowl MVP for his 2 interceptions for 34 yards and 2 tackle performance. His first-quarter interception of Rich Gannon’s pass to the Buccaneers 40 yard line set the tone for the rest of the game. Jackson was only the second safety to be named Super Bowl MVP and the third DB to achieve such a feat. No other DB has been awarded MVP Honors since.
Let’s hope that these two Legendary Bucs players will announce a new legend in the making.
