Two months ago, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a historic home-court victory in the Super Bowl LV. They denied the Kansas City Chiefs’ dreams of conquering a consecutive win. Aside from that, Tom Brady had been recognized as the “Greatest Quarterback of All Time” after leaving the New England Patriots in 2019.
This September, the football action is back as the latest season of the NFL will take place. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which currently hold the Lombardi trophy, will defend their title. Like the previous season, the Bucs are seen as the biggest favorites this year to clinch the Super Bowl LVI.
While it’s still a few months away before the 2021 NFL occurs, every team is now focusing on the drafting season. In fact, the Bucs have completed their Current Draft Odds and prospects, making their roster stronger than ever. Let’s meet the Bucs’ biggest prospects for the 2021 NFL season.
Asante Samuel Jr.
The Bucs already have a solid defense line led by Brady and Gron. Last year, one of their biggest struggles for almost getting lost in the Wildcard was a weaker offensive line. It is why they are headlining a better plan this year by prospecting Asante Samuel Jr. as their main cornerback.
Asante was playing as a cornerback for Florida State Seminoles for two years. He had been part of the 2020 First-Team All-ACC. The odds by FanDuel can give you great insights if Samuel is also favored by sportsbooks across the internet.
This lad is an alumnus of Louisville State University who is presumed as the second pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is a defensive tackle who is playing presently in the said school. Together with his team, he has won the 2020 CFP National Championship and recorded an impressive scorecard during the match.
Next in line to the Bucs’ best potential picks this year is Brady Christensen. He is an offensive tackle who plays for the BYU Cougars from 2017 to the present. As he took part in the Bucs’ initial lineup for the offensive side, Christensen is undoubtedly expected to work competitively with Brady and the whole team.
Fourth on the Bucs mock draft list is Joshua Kaindoh. He plays as the defensive end for the Florida State Seminoles. As a possible player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, Kaindoh was hailed as the 2nd best NFL prospect in today’s draft. Joshua is scheduled to take part in the Under Armour-All America Game in the coming months.
The Michigan Wolverines have someone to boast in the NFL Draft this year, Carlo Kemp. He plays as the defensive lineman and will probably go with the Bucs this year. In 2020, he accomplished ten touchdowns and two sacks. This accomplishment is something he can bring into the Bucs, helping the defensive division of the team.
Another important position that the Bucs are looking at this year is the tight end. Although Rob Gronkowski seems to be the most reliable player that can work with Brady, the Bucs need another man they can tap in case of Gron’s absence.
That said, the team targets Quintin Morris to join the team as a tight end. He is a senior tight end player for the Bowling Green Falcons. Looking into his 2020 scoresheet, he accomplished 20 receptions, 248 yards, with an average of 12.4 points per game.
The final prospect pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to join their lineup this year is Racey McMath. He will fill in the wide receiver position, which is the same role he’s playing for the Louisiana State University.
McMath had recorded 14 receptions in his current scoresheet, with one touchdown in 195 yardages. Not only that, he performs 13.9 average points per game. Will Racey continue to show his best more as he joins the defending champions’ team?
Undeniably, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had been the biggest sleeper last year who turned to be the current Super Bowl champions. The team struggled many times in the playoffs and even lost in the Divisional Rounds. They were given a chance to play in the Wildcard, which they managed to soar high and defeated the huge favorites, including the Chiefs.
This year, the Bucs are striving hard to improve their roster by prospecting the best players in the NFL Draft. Together with Brady and Gron, can the Bucs manage to win a back-to-back title? Will the prospected players above can contribute to the Bucs’ success this year, or will it be the cause of another demise?
