Countdown to the 2015 NFL draft
We are now less than a month away from the 2015 draft in which of course the Bucs will be selecting first.  So as the countdown to being on the clock continues, we will look at some of the past 39 Buccaneers drafts, both good and bad. 2002 -  In terms of the players selected, there was no impact at all apart from 5th round pick Jermaine Phillips. But in terms of the picks traded for Jon Gruden, well, there is a Vince Lombardi Trophy at One Buc Place with his fingerprints all over it.  Click here for all the details on the 2002 draft 2003 -  This was a pretty solid draft thanks to Dewayne White, Chris Simms and Seam Mahan all becoming starters. Who knows how good Simms would have been without that spleen injury in 2006. The first round pick becomes part of the "we won a Super Bowl thanks to Jon Gruden" debate, but based on players alone, this draft is now above average.

DE/LB Keith McCants  1990-92  (47) CB Kiewan Ratliff 2007  (34) McCants is one of the greatest busts in Buc draft history. Selected with the 4th selection of the 1990 draft, the next pick was All-Pro Junior Seau. He was incapabale of playing LB in the NFL and was converted to DE for the 1991 season. Two non-descript seasons on the line followed and he was cut before playing in his fourth season.
Having put together video highlights for Kevin House and Ricky Bell, the third in the series features one of the greatest all-time Buccaneers and true fan favourites, Dave Moore.  Now more well known as part of the team radio broadcast crew with Gene Deckerhoff, Dave played in nearly 200 games for the franchise in a career that spanned 15 seasons.     Click here for the link
