The Buccaneers have based a huge part of their success around young guys being able to step up when called upon to do so. They need that more than ever in 2022.

The Buccaneers are one of the best teams in the NFL at finding rookie talent and then developing it. Draft picks and young guys played a huge role for the Bucs en route to their Super Bowl win a little over a year ago, and they should also play a large role in the upcoming season too.

While the Bucs should rightfully be very excited about what they got through the 2022 NFL Draft, they also have a few other young guys that are worth keeping an eye on during the upcoming season.

Player #1

Joe Tryon-Shoyinka 

It is impossible to make a list like this and not mention JTS first. What he brought to the table as a rookie was good enough for everyone to see that he has a role on this roster as a true starter, and this likely played into why Jason Pierre-Paul is no longer on the team.

Tryon-Shoyinka is going to get a lot of reps as the Buccaneers try to figure out exactly what they have in their former first-round pick. Count us excited to see how the season plays out for one of the most important young players on the roster.
