The 2020 Buccaneer draft review
The Bucs picked from 13th, 12th, 11th, 16th, 15th and 14th
during the draft. They traded a 4th round pick to the Patriots
for TE Rob Gronkowski and a 7th round pick. They traded a
4th round pick to San Francisco to move up one spot in the
1st round but received a 7th round pick in return. The
original 7th round pick went in the 2019 trade involving WR
Draft review - two outstanding All-Pro starters in Wirfs and Winfield. Vaughn & Johnson
both had their moments and two other players contributed at a lower level as well.
1 - T - Tristan Wirfs - Iowa
Remains one of the best tackles in the NFL despite switching to the left side for the 2023 season and was a Pro Bowl alternate. Had earned
his second straight Pro Bowl nomination in 2022 and was named 2nd team All-Pro for another stellar season at right tackle. Missed four
games through injury late in the season. Had an outstanding rookie season starting every game at right tackle and was credited with only
allowing one sack in his entire rookie season.
2 - S - Antoine Winfield - Minnesota
The Defensive Player of the year for the Buccaneers in 2023 and named an All-Pro despite amazingly missing out on a Pro Bowl berth. Has
started every game he has been healthy for in his four NFL seasons and earned enough respect around the league to make the 2021 Pro
Bowl as an alternate. Followed his father into becoming an NFL safety but is on his way to match his three All-Pro selections.
3- RB - Ke'shawn Vaughn - Vanderbilt
Saw limited playing time as the No.3 back in the first six games but was released when Chase Edmonds returned from injury. Saw limited
playing time in his three seasons with the Bucs and has not shown the receiving skills he did in college. Was more of a special teams player
during the 2022 season but saw more playing time in the season finale in Atlanta. Had a 55-yard scoring run in the win in Carolina in late
2021 and played extensively in the playoff win over Philadelphia.
5 - WR - Tyler Johnson - Minnesota
Saw more extensive action in his second NFL season but never truly secured a reliable role in the receiving corps and was cut in camp in
2022. Had touchdown passes in consecutive weeks in his rookie season 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. Was inactive for the first three games of 2021 before
being released. His twin brother Carlos was drafted in the 7th round by the Steelers.
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 2020. Played in 11 games before
being released at the end of the regular season and was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars and spent the season with them in a back-up
7 - RB - Raymond Calais - Louisiana-Lafayette
Did not make the 2020 team out of training camp and never suited up with the cancellation of the pre-season games. He was signed off the
practice squad in early September by the Los Angeles Rams and saw action in four games on special teams. In college, he he rushed for a
total of 1,845 yards and 15 touchdowns and made 15 receptions for 145 yards and one score.
