Where Would Bucs Pro Bowlers Wirfs, Winfield Land In A Re-Draft?

The 2020 NFL Draft was a improbable one for the Bucs. They managed to land two influence gamers and Professional Bowlers in proper sort out Tristan Wirfs and security Antoine Winfield, Jr. with the group’s first two picks.

Large receiver Tyler Johnson, a fourth-rounder has logged helpful snaps and has made a number of vital catches in his two years in Tampa Bay. And third-round operating again Ke’Shawn Vaughn has improved the final two seasons. He’s made essentially the most of his alternative when referred to as to begin final 12 months.

Wirfs got here into the league and set it ablaze together with his stellar play at proper sort out. Beginning as a rookie he was tasked with going towards a few of the finest move rushers the league has to supply. Faltering simply as soon as, when he let up a sack towards Khalil Mack. In his second season he was voted to the Professional Bowl and named a primary group All-Professional. The sky’s the restrict for Wirfs, who has Corridor of Fame potential.

Trying again on the 2020 draft class, making an attempt to know how Winfield slipped into the second spherical is puzzling. Not solely did he fall into the early-mid a part of the second spherical he wasn’t even the primary security chosen.

Winfield was the fourth security off the board behind the likes of Kyle Dugger, Grant Delpit and Xavier McKinney. Out of the group, there’s no doubting Winfield has been the most efficient participant. Named a starter from day one, he  gained Professional Bowl recognition in his second season.

However relating to re-drafting the 2020 NFL Draft, the place would each gamers wind up? Wirfs was initially chosen by the Bucs with the thirteenth choose in Spherical 1 after a one-spot trade-up with the 49ers. Winfield wasn’t taken till choose No. 45 within the second spherical. Certainly each gamers would transfer up in a re-draft, however the place would they fall?

Trying on the draft as a complete there have been few gamers which have been higher than Wirfs and two of them are quarterbacks. Chargers passer Justin Herbert and Tremendous Bowl runner-up Joe Burrow of the Bengals. You might make a case for a wholesome Chase Younger and the electrical Justin Jefferson for being higher than Wirfs. However he lands no decrease than 5 in a re-draft in my very own opinion.

1 – QB Joe Burrow
2 – QB Justin Herbert

5 – RT Tristan Wirfs

The place Does Winfield Get Re-drafted?

The actual query is the place does Winfield land?

He’s definitely moved into the primary spherical, however is he a Prime 10 participant?

Trying on the draft there are solely 5 different 2020 picks not beforehand listed, together with Winfield, which have been named to a Professional Bowl. These gamers are, Cowboys large receiver Ceedee Lamb, Colts operating again Jonathan Taylor, Cowboys nook Trevon Diggs and Lions guard Jonah Jackson. Falcons nook A.J. Terrell and Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy are high-caliber gamers with out Professional Bowl nods.

Taylor and Lamb are locks for the Prime 10 in a re-draft. And due to the place he performs, Diggs probably is as properly. Particularly after main the league in interceptions in 2021. That would depart two spots left to spherical out the Prime 10.

Trying on the careers of Jeudy and Terrell in comparison with Winfield, Winfield will get the nod over each for me. Terrell rounds out the Prime 10 because of Jeudy’s accidents within the league.

6 – RB Jonathan Taylor
7 – WR Ceedee Lamb
8 – CB Trevon Diggs
9 – S Antoine Winfield, Jr.
10 – CB A.J. Terrell
