Five undrafted free-agents with the best chance of making the Buccaneers roster
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in ‘win-now’ mode and that means they don’t have time to wait around and determine what projects to keep and which ones to let go.
Instead, the Buccaneers must make swift decisions and maintain a roster full of players who can best put them in position to win a championship.
That simply doesn’t bode well for many undrafted free-agents who have the dream of making the roster.
As we continue to prepare for the upcoming season, here are the undrafted free-agents with the best chance of avoiding the cut and potentially making the Buccaneers roster.
5. DE Benning Potoa’e / LB Nasir Player
We’re going to kick off our list with one tie and that happens to be with players that will be competing for spots in the front-seven.
Benning Potoa’e was a linebacker at Washington until being converted to a defensive end during his final season with the Huskies. He finished seven tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and offers great versatility at the position.
Nasir Player is one of the most talked about and exciting undrafted free-agents for the Buccaneers and there’s certainly a belief that he has the talent to compete for a back-up position at linebacker this season. Player had 14.5 sacks in his career and was absolutely dominant at East Tennessee State.
He’ll have some work to do to make the roster, but there’s certainly promise and potential for both of these guys in the front-seven.
