1. Lee Roy Selmon
One of the most prolific athletes in the history of Tampa Bay, there’s no other choice for this top spot than the late, great Lee Roy Selmon. A Hall of Famer, Selmon was the first Bucs’ draft pick in team history, and he’s by far the best. I mean, the Selmon Expressway is named after him, how’re you going to beat that?
2. Derrick Brooks
Another pillar of the Tampa Bay community, Derrick Brooks is known as one of the best linebackers not only in Bucs history, but the NFL. He was an elite tackler and pass coverage backer, and Brooks is now incredibly active in the community. He also kind of, you know, contributed to that 2002 Super Bowl team pretty heavily.
3. Mike Evans
Mike Evans is already the best offensive player in Bucs history, and given a couple more years with the same production he’s been putting out, he could move up to no. 1 on this list. He was obviously pivotal in the Bucs’ Super Bowl run a couple years ago, and will continue to play a key role with this explosive Bucs offense.
While Brooks is obviously the best linebacker in Bucs history, David is not far off at no. 2. And let’s not forget that he was picked in the second round—sheesh, talk about value. David has been nothing but productive and durable. He's played double-digit games in every season of his career and the lowest number of games he played came last season at 12, a ridiculous stat. The fact that David has only made one Pro Bowl team is beyond me.
5. Ronde Barber
Barber is certainly a fan-favorite, and many might argue that he should be higher on this list, and understandably so. Barber is a three-time First-Team All-Pros, and was another anchor in that 2002 Super Bowl run on the legendary, Monte Kiffin-led defense. Without Barber, the Bucs’ already dark history might be even darker.
