As the 2019 NFL Draft arrives in four short days, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hope to avoid adding a player to the biggest busts in franchise history.
As the 2019 NFL Draft approaches, beginning on Thursday night, we take a trip down memory lane in order to remember the three biggest draft busts in the entire franchise history of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Every franchise has them, and thankfully, the Buccaneers do not have any as bad as Jamarcus Russell, Johnny Manziel, or Vernon Gholston.
To be fair, the Buccaneers have hit home runs on several later round picks, but what fun is it to bring up the good times? Instead we laugh until we cry at the highest profile names in franchise history who did not pan out quite as Tampa Bay had hoped.
The jury still may be out on several players currently on the Buccaneers’ roster, so no active members in Tampa Bay will appear on the list. However, one who was recently removed does crack the top-three.
While quarterbacks Josh Freeman and Trent Dilfer may be busts in their own regard, they are not severe enough to crack the list of top-three busts of all-time. Without further to do, grab a box of tissues and prepare to cry your eyes out as we make you remember what terrible picks were made by the Buccaneers.
