Buccaneers' secondary is NFL's most improved position group

The most talented secondary in the NFL, maybe, but is it good enough?




Which position group improved the most this offseason? Why, could it be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' secondary? NFL.com's Chris Wesseling certainly seems to think so.


If Revis' recovery from knee surgery goes half as smoothly as those of Adrian Peterson and Robert Griffin III, the Bucs will have the league's premier lockdown cornerback to go with veteran Eric Wright and ball-hawking second-round draft pick Johnthan Banks. Pairing Goldson with the hard-hitting Mark Barron gives the Bucs a safety tandem with the potential to rival the Seattle Seahawks' Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor as the NFL's best. A pass defense that ranked dead last in 2012 could be one of the league's stingiest in 2013.
 


Can you think of another unit that went from (arguably) the worst in the NFL to (arguably) the best -- or at least most talented? Hell, can you think of any other united that added two new All-Pros and a second-round draft pick? I certainly can't.
 
Still, we haven't seen these players on the field yet, and there's always a big step from theoretical talent to practical implementation. Just look at the Philadelphia Eagles the past two years

Yes, our run defense from last year!
