Ranking the top 100 NFL players is a bit of a hype this offseason. They just keep coming up. This time, USA Today's Steven Ruiz got in on the action. Long story short: three Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the list.

The highest ranked Buc was Gerald McCoy, who comes in at number 41.

McCoy had a "down year" for his standards. He was also dealing with a painful shoulder injury and a broken hand. Those injuries did not stop McCoy from racking up 8.5 sacks. He’ll have plenty more in 2016.

Doug Martin was ranked number 85, while Lavonte David dropped all the way to number 91. No other Buc was ranked anywhere on the top 100.

That's pretty much what we've seen so far: those three Bucs keep making top 100 lists, while Mike Evans and Jameis Winston keep getting left off. No other Bucs have a realistic chance of making these lists for now, though hopefully Kwon Alexander and Ali Marpet will be making a strong case next offseason.
