A week after Lavonte David was revealed to be No. 35 on the NFL Network’s Top 100 list, Gerald McCoy has also joined the list.
McCoy, who is ranked No. 28 by a jury of his peers, joins David and Vincent Jackson as the current Buccaneers who are represented. Former Buc, Darrelle Revis, earned the No. 37 spot for his season in Tampa Bay last year.
On last year’s list, McCoy was ranked at No. 92, meaning that he leaped 64 spots in the eyes of fellow NFL players. Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin also made that list, with Lavonte David being snubbed on the honor, and Dashon Goldson making the list after his final season with the 49ers.
The Bucs’ big man in the middle comes in ranked just behind guys like Andre Johnson, Patrick Peterson, Cam Newton, and others, but is ranked ahead of Mario Williams and Andrew Luck. He is likely the last current Buccaneer to be revealed on the list.
