1 - T - Tristan Wirfs - Iowa Continued his ascendancy into one of the finest offensive linemen in the NFL and earned his first Pro Bowl selection in 2021. Was injured in the playoff win against the Eagles and his absence hurt the Bucs badly the following week. Had an outstanding rookie season starting every game at right tackle and was credited with only allowing one sack in his entire rookie season. Started for three seasons at Iowa and was an All-American in his senor season. 2 - S - Antoine Winfield - Minnesota Has started every game he has been healthy for in his first two NFL seasons and earned enough respect around the league to make the 2021 Pro Bowl as an alternate. Had an outstanding rookie season and impressed many with his play in both the running and passing games. Followed his father into becoming an NFL safety but will have to go a long way to match his three All-Pro selections. Was a unanimous All-American in the 2019 season. 3- RB - Ke'shawn Vaughn - Vanderbilt as seen limited playing time in his first two seasons with the Bucs and has not shown the receiving skills he did in college. 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 has not yet truly secured a reliable role in the receiving corps. Had touchdown passes in consecutive weeks in his rookie season against Green Bay and Oakland. 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 TDs. 6 - DL - Khalil Davis - Auburn Made the 2020 team as a back-up on the defensive line and 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 and ended the year on the Steelers' practice squad. 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 role. 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
