We're ranking the draft prospects by position this year, and we're doing it via polls. Today we're looking at the top 5 edge players: who would you list at the top of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' draft board, and who would you drop? You can rank the top 5 here -- we'll do 6-10 later, and maybe 11-15 even later.
The ultimate goal here is to get a serviceable list of prospects for the Bucs -- not just just for any NFL team, so keep that in mind. This has a particularly large effect here, as a lot of players who would play (3-4) outside linebacker for other times are likely to be defensive ends for the Bucs. I've grouped those hybrid players with more traditional defensive ends in a general "edge player" category.
Big thanks to Dawgs By Nature for putting this thing together.
So, vote and let us know how Bucs Nation thinks about the top edge player prospects in the NFL. It'll be really interesting to see how the wisdom of crowds does compared to the Buccaneers themselves.
Here are the results for yesterday's running backs poll.
