Pro Football Focus releases its All-Pro team, and two Buccaneers make it.
The scouting website Pro Football Focus has released its All-Pro team for 2012. Two Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the list: Vincent Jackson as a second-team wide receiver behind Calving Johnson and Andre Johnson, and Gerald McCoy as a second-team defensive tackle behind Geno Atkins and J.J. Watt.
Gerald McCoy had a career year with five sacks and 30 tackles, nine of them for loss. He stayed healthy for an entire season for the first time in his career and anchored the league's best run defense. He looked like the third overall pick in the draft, and the Bucs look like they have another defensive lineman they can build around.
Meanwhile, Vincent Jackson had the best year of his fairly impressive career. With 1,384 yards on 72 receptions, he led the league in yards per catch. Add some eight touchdowns and he was a huge part of the Buccaneers' resurgent offense and is a much-deserved mention on the PFF All-Pro team.
