Obviously the grade isn’t going to be high. When multiple members of a draft class are no longer on the team, it’s not a good group. This group has three that are already gone, and it could be more by the time the off-season is over. The Bucs might only be left with Spence and Gholston by the time the dust settles. It is a good thing that Dominik is no longer the general manager.
But, Spence and Gholston do bring it out of being an abject failure. Are they stars like Noah Spence or Kwon Alexander? No, but they don’t have to be. A team that is destined for greatness must have great role players as well. These two guys have been contributing since day one, and as the new defensive line continues to come together, they could get even better.
But, they aren’t there yet, and the evaluation is on the past four years. The grade doesn’t come up that much.
