The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a lot of big names that will dominate during the 2020 season, but these four options will have a similar opportunity.
It is easy for players to get lost in the cracks of the roster for the Buccaneers with all of the big-name talent soaking up the limelight. There are numerous massively underrated players on the roster behind All-Pro locks, perennial Pro Bowlers, and even a few future Hall of Famers.
Much of the focus on some of the new arrivals like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski or even some of the returners like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin and that scope is too narrow to evaluate what next season will look like properly.
While the big-name players will certainly get the spotlight that they deserve, some of the depth pieces or newer names will have an opportunity to surprise a substantial NFL audience.
In a year where Super Bowl hopes are as real as they have been in almost two decades, the Bucs will rely on their depth pieces more than ever. The top players won’t be able to carry all the team’s weight no matter how great they are.
If these “under-rated” players can step up in 2020, the Bucs will be in an excellent position in the playoff race.
