Congrats to Rookies, Mark Barron, Lavonte David, and Doug Martin for being named to the PFW/PFWA NFL All-Rookie Team!

Pro Football Weekly and the Pro Football Writers of America have been capping every NFL season with an All-Rookie Team for as long as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been around (PFW and the PFWA combined forces on the matter in the 2000s).  They have rarely liked a Buccaneers rookie class as much as they do the most recent group of newcomers.

The PFW/PFWA selections are as close as it comes to an official NFL All-Rookie Team. The first Buc to get a PFW nod was LB David Lewis way back in 1977, the team’s second year of existence.  The first Tampa Bay class to place more than one player on the team was the 1984 group, with LB Keith Browner and T Ron Heller.

This year, the PFW/PFWA voters have included three Buccaneers on their annual rookie squad: RB Doug Martin, S Mark Barron and LB Lavonte David.  That makes the 2012 class just the second one in franchise history to have a trio of PFW/PFWA all-rookie picks.  The 1997 group did it first with WR Reidel Anthony, RB Warrick Dunn and G Frank Middleton.

Barron (seventh overall), Martin (31st) and David (58th) were the Buccaneers’ first three picks in the 2012 draft, all three of them coming after some sort of trade executed by General Manager Mark Dominik.  The Bucs traded down two spots before picking Barron, which gave them added draft-pick ammunition for their eventual trades up to get Martin and David.

The Buccaneers and Vikings are the only teams to place three rookies on the PFW/PFWA team this year.  Tampa Bay is the only one of those teams to have three non-specialists on the team (Minnesota’s Blair Walsh was the choice at kicker).  Indianapolis has two players on the team but three listings, as T.Y. Hilton was chosen at both wide receiver and punt returner.

Martin led all NFL newcomers with 1,926 yards from scrimmage in 2012, the third-highest total ever for a rookie.  Barron started all 16 games at strong safety for the Buccaneers and posted 89 tackles, four tackles for loss, one interception, 10 passes defensed and one forced fumble.  David led the Buccaneers with 139 stops, adding two sacks, one interception and five passes defensed, and led all NFL rookies with 20 tackles for loss.

Awesome. If Barron can expand on his body if work next season, we will have a solid safety. Hopefully he blows up though. Solid isn't good enough.

I think he was picked too high to be an elite guy. However I'm past that and just hope we have ourselves a solid safety. It's hard to hit on your draft picks, even if it is a top 10 pick. If he can be a solid player for us, it's not a loss in my eyes. At least he's solid in that regard and not a total bust.

Barron on the all rookie team ??!! How could this be !!?? I thought he had a horrible rookie year . He's damn near a bust already by some people's standards on this board !!! This is impossible....

Hey, we get a huge splash play out of Barron. Something to build on after a bad year.

Gotta laugh at the logic for some clowns. Momo is average despite showing signs of being a good man up corner, but Barron is going to be a stud after a garbage year. Yeah...no agenda there. Hahahahahahaha! 



Barron has played like poop.



Nice backtrack by the village idiot.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I don't agree with Barron being on the all rookie team.     There is only one strong safety that plays on a D - and the best rookie strong safety this year was Harrison Smith.

Barron is mediocre and would have been a good pick in the 4th round, but not with the 8th pick overall.

Says the guy who thought Michael Clayton was a future superstar after his rookie year.

The selection of Mark Barron to this rookie team is a slap in the face to Martin and David and all the accomplished this year. He very well could be a solid safety for us, but he was anything but in '12.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

Says the guy who thinks Tim Tebow is good NFL quarterback.

Just says that maybe there weren't too many good rookie safeties this past season.

Says the guy who thinks Tebow is going to be a great QB despite ending up 3rd on the depth chart of a team w/ two bad QBs ahead of him.
