1 - T - Tristan Wirfs - Iowa
Had an outstanding rookie season starting every game at right tackle and was credited with only allowing one sack in his entire rookie season.
Was the Bucs' top pick in 2020 having started for three seasons at Iowa and was an All-American in his senor season. Was a superb shotput and
discus champion at both high school and college.
2 - S - Antoine Winfield - Minnesota
Had an outstanding rookie season and started every game at safety impressing many with his play in both the running and passing games. Has followed his father into becoming an NFL
safety but will have to go a long way to match his three All-Pro selections. Was the Bucs' 2nd round pick in 2020 and was a unanimous All-American in the 2019 season.
3- RB - Ke'shawn Vaughn - Vanderbilt
Was drafted as much for his receiving skills as his running abilities. The arrival of both LeSean McCoy and Leonard Fournette curtailed his chances early in the season but he did see his
most extensive action in the blowout win over the Lions. His first NFL touchdown came in the win over the Chargers.
5 - WR - Tyler Johnson - Minnesota
Had a promising rookie season in limited opportunities but had touchdown passes in consecutive weeks against Green Bay and Oakland. Was a 5th round pick in 2020 having caught over
200 passes in college as one of the leading receivers in the Big-Ten and also Minnesota's all-time leader in receiving yardage and touchdowns.
6 - DL - Khalil Davis - Auburn
Made the 2020 team as a back-up on the defensive line having been selected with the 194th overall pick of the 2020 draft. Was inactive for most of the year but saw limited playing time in
two games as well as the post-season. His twin brother Carlos was drafted in the 7th round by the Steelers. Started all 11 games as a senior at Nebraska recording eight sacks and 12 TFLs.
7 - LB - Chapelle Russell - Temple
Did not make the full roster out of training camp but was promoted from the practice squad in mid-October. Played in 11 games before being released at the end of the regular season and
was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
