In 11 years of BUCPOWER.COM, we have featured the Top 100 players, the Top 100 games, the Top 100 plays and even more light-hearted countdowns such as the worst trades, the worst draft picks and even the ugliest Bucs of all-time. Now comes the all-time roster.

The Bucs have had 975 players officially appear on their roster from the 1976 season opener in the Houston Astrodome, to the victory in the final game of the 2012 season in Atlanta. From Rabih Abdullah to Jeremy Zuttah, we have taken the opinions and views of team officials, local media writers, long-term fans and former players to put together a 53-man squad of the very best Buccaneers.

Two players have been selected at each position together with a kicker, punter, kick returner, punt returner, long snapper and special teams' expert. We have also added in a third quarterback and third down back and receiver.

So starting on May 1st, we will each day add another player to the all-time roster until by late June, the final 53 will have been revealed. And then the discussions can begin amongst Buccaneer fans around the world over those included or not included.

Does Alstott make it as a FB like the probowls? Since names like Wilder, Bell, Dunn and Martin may keep the A-train at bay

Starting Left Tackle - Paul Gruber

Every franchise needs a franchise left tackle and this one is no different. Drafted with the fourth overall selection in 1988, Gruber played 12 seasons for the Bucs and went five years without missing a single snap. Inducted into the Tampa Bay Ring of Honor in 2012, Gruber is the perfect starting point for this feature.

I would imagine he gets listed as a FB, but if not he makes the list over 1 year wonder Martin.

I love Dougie, but as of this off season, you cant compare all time production of A-Train and Muscle Hamster.

Every time I see last post JC5100, I have to click on it.... Pure comedy.

Fair enough, but they indicated two at every position, and added a third down back. Not sure A-Train beats out Wilder, Bell or Dunn.

Back-up Left Tackle - Donald Penn
92 consecutive starts at left tackle and the de facto leader of the offense. If there was a war, I know who I would want in the trenches next to me as Donald is one of the most loyal and nicest players I have ever come across.

We have two running backs and two full backs as well as a specialist third down back on the roster.

The all-time Buccaneer 53-man roster
Of all the features and countdowns done here over the years on BUCPOWER.COM, the only one missing was a definitive all-time Buccaneer roster. So taking into account comments and opinions from team officials, writers, the media and former players, we have selected a 53-man roster of the best Bucs in franchise history.
www.bucpower.com/alltime53.html

Starting Left Guard - Sean Farrell
Not one of the more glorified positions on the roster but Farrell was a 1982 1st round pick who started for five seasons on some pretty poor teams before going public with comments on the team that every other player was thinking.

Back-up Left Guard - Cosey Coleman
This was a tough one as there were no real suitable candidates. In the end, we went for Cosey even though he only made five of his 58 starts on the left side as we had a great starter and solid back-up on the right side already. Coleman started on the Super Bowl team and had four solid years after being a 2nd round pick in the 2000 draft.

Really? Cosey made this team? Can you cut a guy from an all-time team?
