TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
Over the weekend Jameis Winston placed second in the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year voting.
The year is 1994 and with the sixth overall pick in round number one the Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft quarterback Trent Dilfer Fresno State University.
The Buccaneers have a Heisman trophy winning quarterback in Jameis Winston. What they don't have is a defense that people actually remember.
The Buccaneers got a new center this past season from the Atlanta Falcons. He is a 6 year veteran, he 14 games this season and his name is Joe Hawley.
The NFL draft is nearly three months away. Seeing how the Buccaneers performed on both sides of the ball this past season, it is clear that the defense did not live up to its potential.
Carnell Williams or Cadillac Williams had so much potential to be great, but in many cases potential is not achieved.
Will Doug Martin be returning to the team for the 2016 NFL season?
The pressure is going to be on coach Koetter to do well quickly.
The Buccaneers have a big bruiser at fullback that could be utilized in a better way than he is being used at this point.
All of this started for a rookie named Jameis Winston. He is known to party, but not too much. He was the first piece to the puzzle.
For the Buccaneers and the Buccaneers faithful fans 2015 by all accounts was not a good season. They lost games that they were supposed win.
All three are young players, but they are going to step up and all be team leaders which will help the team and their new head coach Dirk Koetter.
With the addition of Mike Smith coming to the Buccaneers as defensive coordinator will give linebacker Lavonte David a different look which he might be show cased a little more.
After Lovie Smith was dismissed as head coach and General Manager Jason Licht had his press conference it was clear that Dirk Koetter would be the new Buccaneers head coach.
