LT- Donovan Smith
Yes, you expected a defensive player… wrong!
Left tackle Donovan Smith makes this list because of the mighty match-up he will face this week.
How will Smith stop Everson Griffin?
Griffin, who has already tallied three sacks in his 2017 campaign, is one player the Bucs’ coaching staff will game plan against this week. After inking a massive four year $58 million dollar contract this off-season, the defensive end has been everything and more that the Vikings have paid for.
It is up to third year left tackle Smith to be able to both slow down Griffin and keep quarterback Jameis Winston clean. Smith had a great week one versus the Bears, holding his own for much of the contest besides one sack that was more on the quarterback than himself.
Can he have another successful outing? The odds may be in his favor this week and it will have to be if the Bucs want to come out of Minnesota with another tally in the win column.
Look for this offense to live up to its worth this week.
