The Tampa Bay Pirates have a talented roster. This, many already know.
But a lot of attention is being paid to veterans like quarterback Tom Brady (obviously), wide receiver Mike Evans, linebacker David Lafonte, and offensive tuners like Ryan Jensen.

And some of that veteran focus has some nervous fans worried about what might happen when the best of them all, Brady, retires.
According to Trevor Sikkema (formerly with the Pewter Report) on Pro Football Focus, the Bucs have plenty of young talent, with more men looking to land on the national radar in 2022.
In his list of the top 25 players under the age of 25, Sikkima lists three players; Offensive tackle by Tristan Werfs, Antoine Winfield Jr. safety, and fullback Devin White.
About the Wirfs, Sikkema writes, “Wirfs hasn’t just been one of the best attacking young navigators of the past two seasons, he’s been one of the best regardless of age. Since being thrown in a starting point right off the rookie bat during the campaign, Wrifs has proven himself As one of the best right tackles in the game – and he also has a Super Bowl ring on his finger already. At just 23 years old, this could be the start of a very special career.”
At number four on the list, I’m surprised it wasn’t higher at first glance.
Having come behind back-caliber MVP Jonathan Taylor of the Indianapolis Colts, quarterback Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers) and rusher Nick Bossa (San Francisco 49ers), I think I’d put Wrifs second behind Bosa on this list if I’m not counting. positional value.
But this really splits the hair.

“Like Tristan Wirves, Winfield was propelled to the starting position in Tampa Bay during the junior season,” Sekima wrote of the young Bok’s safety, ranked No. 18 on his roster. “The results were favorable: a Pro Bowl ring, a Super Bowl ring and the highest PFF score of any safety with at least 1,000 shots under 25.”
The presence of Devin White on this list may surprise some, which Sikkema acknowledges by writing that he may be “one of the most polarizing players in the NFL.”
There were plenty of Tampa Bay fans who felt that the drafting of White when the team did it was accessible and those who didn’t.
Now, some feel that he has proven his worth and can jump to the top level of the NFL’s defenders with some maturity in his game, and others feel his lack of – in passing coverage in particular – explaining why he didn’t pick his Top 5 players, to start with.
Polarization is a good word for that, and while his sport continues to bring a lot of fun to watch, if he’s going to make over 25 roster outside next season, he’ll need to become a more complete midfielder.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren’t the only three-player team on Sikkema’s roster.
Cornback Trevon Diggs (No. 25), receiver Ceedee Lamb (No. 17), and linebacker Micah Parsons (No. 6) all represent the Dallas Cowboys, while the Atlanta Falcons (CB, AG Terrell and T, Kyle Bates) and the Cincinnati Bengals (WRs and Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins) each had two players on the roster.
