These Buccaneers rookies haven’t lived up to their billing yet
While Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans are excited about the prospect of seeing the new rookies take the field, there are some who are still weaving their way through Training Camp.
The Buccaneers signed one of the best draft classes in recent history earlier this summer and there’s plenty of potential surrounding those rookies as we heading into the 2020 season.
However, that doesn’t mean that every rookie blooms at the same time or makes an immediate impact.
Here’s a look at three Buccaneers rookies who haven’t lived up to their billing in Training Camp as of yet.
We’re starting off with Tristan Wirfs because he was the biggest name and had the most expectations placed on him coming into this season.
There’s no question that Wirfs is going to be a special player at the next level, but for him to live up to his billing, he’s going to have to be a star early on in his career. After all, the Buccaneers did trade up and lose a draft pick to get him.
Wirfs has gotten better over the course of Training Camp and things are starting to slow down for him, but that doesn’t mean he is completely there yet. He has struggled at times in defending the pass-rush and it’s clear that he’s going to take a few games to get his feet wet before moving into the right tackle that we all know he can become.
Wirfs is talented and he’s absolutely going to be a special player, but he may take some time to develop.
