The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Trent Dilfer and Dexter Jackson as their guest presenters for their day-two picks of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Yesterday the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the guest announcers for their picks in the second and third rounds. Former quarterback Trent Dilfer will announce the team’s second round pick, while former safety Dexter Jackson will announce their third round selection.
Dilfer was drafted sixth overall in the 1994 NFL Draft of the Buccaneers and spent his first six seasons in Tampa Bay. While Dilfer started only two games in his rookie season, he went on to be the starting quarterback for the Buccaneers for the next five seasons.
Dilfer led the Buccaneers to two winning seasons in 1997 and in 1999. In 1997 Dilfer led the team to a 10-6 record and was named a Pro Bowler under head coach Tony Dungy; he went on to lead the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl Championship in 2000. In addition to playing for the Ravens and Buccaneers, Dilfer also spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns, and San Francisco 49ers during his 13-year career.
Jackson is most famous for winning the Super Bowl MVP award when the Buccaneers were crowned as the NFL champions in 2002. In that game, Jackson picked off NFL MVP Rich Gannon twice as Tampa Bay went on to beat the Oakland Raiders by a final score of 48-21.
Jackson played six total seasons in the pewter and red in two separate stints; while a member of the Buccaneers, he tallied eight of his 17 career interceptions, forced three fumbles, and recorded ten tackles for loss. He went on to also play for the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals in his ten-year career.
The Buccaneers continue to recognize players who contributed to their success in the late 90s and early 2000s. Day-two of the 2019 NFL Draft, when Dilfer and Jackson are to announce the Buccaneers’ picks is scheduled for April 26th.
