Most NFL analysts would agree it takes at least three years before one can properly assess a draft class. It is especially difficult to evaluate a draft class’ rookie season. However, most NFL writers do it anyway and this writer is no exception. Jameis Winston is the face of the Bucs’ franchise and a proven leader last season. What’s in store for this year’s 2016 NFL Draft class?
On Thursday, April 28th the Buccaneers will welcome Season Pass Members to the team’s Official Draft Party, presented by Miller Lite. — The Draft Party will be held for the first round on Thursday night. The Bucs currently hold seven picks, including the ninth overall pick in the first round.
Once again, a group of newly acquired players leave fans with more questions than answers. Similar to the 2015 free agent class, the 2016 Draft class casts another shadow of uncertainty on the future of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
