The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have found gold in the later rounds of NFL drafts; here are the three biggest draft steals in franchise history.
Yesterday we covered the three biggest draft busts in Tampa Bay Buccaneers franchise history, and today we cover the three biggest draft steals. While the anticipation of who the Buccaneers will take with the fifth overall pick is crushing the entire city of Tampa Bay, some of the best players in franchise history have been found in the later rounds.
The Buccaneers have had success finding players outside of the first round in franchise history, including current linebackers Lavonte David in the second round, and Kwon Alexander in the fourth round to name a couple in recent history. It is only a matter of time before the Buccaneers add another list of players to their roster through the draft. Could the next late round sleeper for the Buccaneers be in the 2019 draft class?
With three days to go until the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buccaneers are hoping to add another name or two (or seven) to their list of draft steals. A common theme of all three players on this list: they were all teammates on the Super Bowl winning 2002 Buccaneers team. Sit back and cry tears of joy recalling these three players, who have turned into the biggest draft steals of all-time in Tampa Bay history.
