The 2017 NFL Combine is in full swing. Jason Licht and his Buccaneers colleagues are watching, studying, interviewing, and going about the business of finding the stars of tomorrow. The veterans of yesterday get replaced with the college players of tomorrow and the evaluation process has begun in Indianapolis.
Soon enough, it will be on to the all important pro days and finally the draft. The Bucs have holes to fill, as we all know, and the staff is busy figuring out the best way to fill those holes.
While the team is doing that, we are taking a step back into history. Draft steals are a fun topic, aren’t they? When your team gets that player later in the draft, it doesn’t get much attention at first. But when that player becomes a star, the move looks that much better. “Wow, what a steal!”, you might say. You might wonder how that player was available after so many picks! These are the players we are talking about today.
We have gone back through history to find the five biggest draft steals in franchise history. Any long-time Bucs fan knows this wasn’t the easiest list to pull together. We managed, however, so let’s get started with number five.
