Every year different teams are compiled by NFL, some consist of top ten picks and some from undrafted players.
So often Bucs fans cast an eye over these lists then quickly move on, frustrated by the continued absence of buccaneers. On the rare occasion that talented players arrive in the Bay Area, they are seemingly sucked into a black hole. Ignored by the national media.
But no more!
Appearing on NFL.com is a list of the top players under 25, written by Marc Sessler.
The list features the cream of the crop from around the league. Players who are the future and current stars of the NFL.
What made this list such exciting reading was that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have not one, but two players in this team. Tight end standout OJ Howard is featured on offense with an acknowledgment that head coach Bruce Arians hasn’t ever had a talent like Howard before.
Rounding off the team is Vita Vea. The fact he was a rookie with a season disrupted by injury speaks volumes to his potential. Vea is readying himself for his 2nd season in Tampa and looks ready to take on the league by himself.
There is plenty of talent in this team. It’s not going to be long before it cannot be ignored.
