Free agency and the draft have come and gone, which means its power ranking season! ESPN just published their post-draft power rankings, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming in at number seven.
Here is what ESPN reporter Jenna Laine had to say about the recent additions.
“Player who benefited: QB Tom Brady. The Bucs got the 42-year-old quarterback one of the top tackles in the draft, Tristan Wirfs; he can start at right tackle from Day 1. They also added Ke’Shawn Vaughn, a complete back and strong pass-blocker; dynamic receiver Tyler Johnson, who was a steal in the fifth round; and speedy running back Raymond Calais. And they did all this without neglecting their defense. Plus, they used their fourth-round pick to trade for Rob Gronkowski on the eve of the draft, so that counts, right?” — Jenna Laine
The Buccaneers were vaulted into the top 10 after the signing of Tom Brady, and have crawled closer to the top five with the addition of Tristan Wirfs, Antoine Winfield Jr., and Tyler Johnson.
The six teams who sit ahead of the Buccaneers are the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens, and Kansas City Chiefs.
Tampa Bay has been the offseason champions in 2020, but they will have to prove it when the lights come on in September.
