Gross-Matos has everything it takes to take his game to the next level and be a successful player in the NFL, both as a pass rusher and as a run stopper. Furthermore, his size, strength, power and burst make him a very attractive addition in the upcoming draft. Depending on whom he gets picked by, he may not start right off the bat. However, his second and third-year ceiling are highly impressive. Gross-Matos is expected to get selected in the first or second round by most mock drafts.

If the Bucs are interested in picking Gross-Matos will depend on whether they will sign their free agents at the position. If they do not, they might even use their first round pick on the Nittany Lion.
