Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David was ranked in the NFL Top 100

The NFL Top 100 list is currently being released piece-by-piece and we saw our first Tampa Bay Buccaneers player be included with the first unveiling.

Lavonte David, who has been one of the star linebackers for the Buccaneers for the past half-decade, was rated as the No. 100 overall player in the league coming into this 2020 season, according to the list.

Interestingly enough, David has not been included in the NFL Top 100 list each of the last four seasons, but finds his way in the rankings this time around.

Even though it’s certainly a step in the right direction for David to be recognized the truth of the matter is pretty simple: It’s not good enough to simply just have David in the Top 100.

Lavonte David has been a staple for the Bucccaneers and it’s time people start recognizing it

There are very few linebackers in the league who are truly better than Lavonte David.

Yes, they get more air time. Yes, they’ve been recognized and highlighted at a more frequent rate, but anyone who watches the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a regular basis knows just how good Lavonte David is and that he truly has the talent and skill of one of the top linebackers in the league.

It’s simply not good enough anymore for David to just receive a little bit of recognition.

Anyone who has watched him play knows that he should’ve been included on this list many more times in the past and that he deserves a higher rating than No. 100 coming into this season.

The good news? David will finally have that platform to show what he can do.

With Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, we’re going to see the Bucs featured like never before. That means David will finally have the opportunity to showcase himself to the national media and take that next step in terms of his career and notoriety.

Next. Tom Brady has one foe standing in his way. dark

It’s taken time and should’ve happened a long time ago, but we’re definitely going to see David receive more recognition this season than ever before.
