Kyle Riddle’s Rundown: How Devin White Helps Deone Bucannon1 min read
The Bucs desperately needed Devin White. After the departure of MLB Kwon Alexander, there was a gaping hole in the middle of the Bucs defense. Now that is no longer the case as White is the best LB prospect to come out of the draft in a long time. Not only does he fill the void at LB, but it also allows a player like Deone Bucannon to do what he does best.
Before drafting White it wasn’t really set in stone what Deone Bucannon’s role would be. With White at MLB, it allows Bucannon to get back to doing what he does best, and that is looking into the backfield reading the QBs eyes and using his speed and athleticism to make plays sideline to sideline. Bucannon will get back to playing that hybrid LB/SS position that he excelled at last time Todd Bowles was his Defensive Coordinator. He had over 100 tackles in 2015.
Definitely look for Deone Bucannon to have a Pro Bowl-worthy season.
