Three Bucs players have been named to PFF’s 2021 All-Pro first team this week. Tampa Bay has several players among the highest-graded at their positions, per PFF, nearly picking up a few more spots on the team. Quarterback Tom Brady, right tackle Tristan Wirfs and safety Antoine Winfield were all selected to the first team. Two Bucs made PFF’s second team: linebacker Lavonte David and right guard Ali Marpet.

Brady finished the year as PFF’s top-graded quarterback. He led the NFL in almost every passing category, and finished atop PFF’s advanced stats as well. Brady earned another Pro Bowl nod for his play this season as well. He remains in contention for the MVP award with Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers.

As for Wirfs, he’s simply continued his fine play from a year ago. The former first rounder has been outstanding, giving up just 14 pressures and two sacks in 17 games. Wirfs’ dominance also earned him a Pro Bowl nod this season.

Winfield’s inclusion on the list might be the most surprising to the casual viewer. The former second round pick has been outstanding, but has just modest production on the year. Winfield has 88 tackles, four tackles-for-loss, two sacks, six pass breakups and two interceptions. He’s also forced a pair of fumbles in 2021.

Winfield’s inclusion on the list gives the Bucs two PFF All-Pros from their 2020 draft class. On their current trajectories, Wirfs and Winfield are making GM Jason Licht look like a very smart man.

All three deserved it! Thought maybe Evans would get second team? Brady for MVP!

Well Jason Licht has at least shown that he’s smarter than some by moving up to select Tristan Wirfs and patiently selecting Antonio Winfield Jr. Because if memory serves a really smart columnist from Pittsburgh wanted us to select Javon Kinlaw & somebody named Ashtyn Davis. Hummm! I just can’t remember that guys name.

It’s nice to see the players get some recognition. It’s refreshing and encouraging that Jason Licht and staff have done a good job assembling the roster in spite of some folks thinking otherwise.
