Every team in the NFL wishes they had a rookie who fits with their franchise as well as Joe Tryon-Shoyinka does with the Buccaneers.
At this point, there should be little to no doubt that the Buccaneers hit the jackpot when they sleeted Joe Tryon-Shoyinka with the final pick of the first round 2021 NFL Draft. The doubters and naysayers questioned the preseason hype surrounding the rookie, saying, “wait for the regular season before we actually say this guy is great.”
Well, are there any doubters that still want to attach themselves to those takes?
JTS has been an animal for the Buccaneers during the start of his rookie career. From dominant plays in games where he still doesn’t get enough time on the field to interviews after the game as he did last night, Tryon-Shoyinka is on fire.
Level of play in games matters a ton for players in the NFL, but how they conduct themselves off the field is also huge for a team like the Buccaneers. There are no divas in Tampa, no drama. Even Antonio Brown has been a model teammate during his time with the Bucs, especially when you overlook his current situation.
Tryon-Shoyinka won over a considerable portion of the fanbase with his play so far up until this part of the season, but his interviews like the one last night are how he is continuing to win hearts.
Try to find one wrong response in the whole video. Hint, there isn’t one. JTS checked every box that even the most cynical fan would have, and his humility is extremely impressive for someone with so much talent.
It would have been easy for the rookie to say that he deserved more playtime, yet instead, he showed respect to the other veterans on the roster.
This type of personality will fit in Tampa perfectly. Joe Tryon-Shoyinka has an excellent future ahead of him, and the Buccaneers absolutely made the right pick when they drafted him.
Opposing offenses better beware for years to come.
