4th Round pick 2013
The Bucs' regular starter at left end and opened all 14 games he was healthy for in 2016. More of a two-way player than a pass rusher and often came off the field on passing downs. Has been mostly a regular starter for each of the past three seasons but is a free agent going into the 2017 off-season. Was a 4th round pick who started 24 games in his college career for the Spartans with 10 sacks before declaring for the NFL draft a year early after his junior season. His cousin is Vernon Gholston, a 2008 1st round pick of the New York Jets.
