Marvin Wilson, Florida State, Inside defensive line
Jumping over to another rival of Florida, the Buccaneers and Marvin Wilson could be a match made in Heaven.
The Buccaneer defensive line is already one of the best in the NFL, but keeping that group intact for the future will be difficult to pull off. Vita Vea is nearing an extension, William Gholston is already on an impressive contract, and Ndamukong Suh is proving to be very expensive to keep on the roster.
With the cost continuing to increase on the line, Tampa Bay will have to start looking for their next star to play alongside Vita Vea. Marvin Wilson can not only come in and fill that role from day one, but he has the chance to be as good or better than Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy.
This is an extremely tall order, as Suh and McCoy were two of the best defensive linemen in the NFL during the 2010s, but Wilson has shown that he has the potential to reach that level.
Wilson is moving into his senior year at Florida State and has had to climb a mountain to get where he is currently. FSU has been horrible for the last two seasons, and it is going to be some time before the Seminoles are relevant again.
In spite of all of this, Wilson has steadily improved in almost every statistical category and has proven himself to be an incredible leader. Tampa Bay would be extremely lucky to find Wilson available in the draft without having to trade up to make it happen, but expect to see Wilson continue to receive buzz as a Buccaneer prospect as the season progresses.
