NFL Football is less that 2 weeks away! The Bucs' Week 1 opponents, the New Orleans Saints, have announced no fans in attendance for this game, which effectively takes away home-field advantage. They'll pump crowd noise into the Superdome, but make no mistake: this situation is most advantageous to the Bucs. As far as fans at Raymond James, the team has announced no fans for the first two games, with tentative plans to allow human attendance for the Packers tilt on October 18th.

Certainly expectations are sky-high for the team this year: An improved QB situation, improved receiving corps, improved offensive line, and a better running game all point to an unstoppable offense, one which already ranked 3rd in the NFL in 2019 with 397.3 yards/game. The addition of Leonard Fournette to the RB stable on Sept. 2nd turns what was just a simple embarassment of offensive riches into a hilarity - how will HC Bruce Arians use all this talent?

What should really flip the table, though, are interceptions; Jameis Winston led the league with 30 last year, whereas Tom Brady tossed just 8.

"80% of success is just showing up."
- Woody Allen

The biggest threat to the Bucs' offensive juggernaut is overconfidence, the belief that all the team needs to do to win, and win big, is to show up. Bucs: don't listen to Woody Allen!

Looking to the 2021 Draft, GM Jason Licht will first look for a player who can immediately come in and help the team in Brady's final season(s). This could point to a versatile offensive lineman, where the Bucs are thin in depth. In lieu of that, the team could look adding pieces to the front-7, where key players like Shaq Barrett, Lavonte David, Ndamukong Suh and Jason Pierre-Paul are all expiring Free Agents after this season. Here, it's Pitt defensive lineman Jaylen Twyman. Although Twyman's Panthers are playing football this fall with the rest of the ACC, he's opted out to prepare for the draft.Highlights!

BUCS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
