List: Top Ten Buccaneer Draft Picks of All-Time

Player: Mark Carrier

Position: WR

Ranking: 10th

Draft: 3rd round, pick 1, 1987

Pro Bowl: 1989

A major steal for the Buccaneers in a draft that brought them QB Vinny Testaverde, Mark Carrier quietly had one of the greatest receiving careers in Buccaneer history. In 1989, he became the first Bucs receiver ever to make it to the Pro Bowl and still holds the single season record for receiving yards (1,422). Carrier also holds the team record for receiving yardage, is 4th all-time in team history for receiving touchdowns, 2nd all-time in receptions.
