Can you believe we are less than one month away from the NFL draft? It feels like yesterday that we were cheering on our Buccaneers as they made a run for that final playoff spot. No matter how much that still stings, we are all looking forward to the 2017 season with great anticipation.
But, first we must get through the annual selection meeting, better know to all of us as the NFL draft. What began as a closed-door meeting between NFL owners is now one of the most highly anticipated events on the NFL calendar. It draws large numbers of fans to attend live and posts TV ratings that rival live sporting events going on at the same time.
The Bucs currently sit with the 19th overall selection. They obviously could move, but what if they don’t. I decided to look at how this selection has turned out in recent history. More specifically, we are looking back at the last five players to be chosen with the 19th pick, to see if the spot has been historically a good one.
We go backwards, starting with last year.
